Doctor Who World Tour Opens August 7 With Ep 1 Screening in Cardiff

The Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who won’t begin for most of us until August 23, but lucky fans who are attending one of the stops on the Doctor Who World Tour will get a chance to see the first episode of series 8 a bit earlier than that.  The first screening of the feature-length episode entitled Deep Breath will be held in Cardiff, where the show is primarily filmed, on August 7 – over two weeks before the rest of the world gets to see it.

Rumor has it that this episode will take place mainly in Victorian London picking up where the Christmas Special left off.  Naturally, we’ll see the Paternoster Gang figure prominently in the episode which, thus far, has always been a good sign.  Besides, having a bunch of familiar faces around when the Doctor has just gotten a new one will help ease the transition a bit.

From the BBC Media Centre:

The much-anticipated new series of Doctor Who will have its world premiere in Cardiff on August 7, BBC Wales has announced today (July 4, 2014).
Marking the start of the BBC One hit sci-fi drama’s spectacular world tour, the premiere will be fans’ first chance to see Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, alongside Jenna Coleman as on-screen companion Clara, in episode one of the new series.
The stars will be attending the lunchtime St David’s Hall red carpet event, together with lead writer and producer Steven Moffat. Tickets will be available to the public from St David’s Hall Box Office from Monday 7 July.
The feature-length premiere episode of the eighth series, entitled Deep Breath, will land on BBC One on Saturday 23 August, 2014.
BBC Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies says: “Doctor Who is getting even bigger and even better – and it’s a real thrill that the show’s fans here in Wales will be the very first to see the new Doctor at this very special premiere screening. Doctor Who has been made in Wales for almost ten years – and we’re so proud of its worldwide success.”
