Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman & Steven Moffat will go on a global tour to launch Doctor Who Series 8.

Doctor Who: The World Tour will be visiting 7 cities across five continents in 12 days, where there will be fan events and media interviews.

The tour marks the largest ever promotional undertaking in Doctor Who’s 50-year history and will begin in Cardiff (UK), followed by London (UK), Seoul (South Korea), Sydney (Australia), New York (US), Mexico City (Mexico) and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

Peter Capaldi says: “It’s fantastic that so many people across the world love Doctor Who. After 8 months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans”.

Steven Moffat adds: “I've always thought we’d all be a lot safer if the Doctor conquered the world, instead of the Daleks. Now with Jenna and Peter leading the charge, it looks like it’s going to happen. I’ll be bringing up the rear to handle the exposition scenes, and maybe carry some bags.”

Doctor Who: The World Tour will begin in the UK on Thursday, 7th August and will finish in Brazil on Tuesday, 19th August.

Doctor Who Series 8 will air in August on BBC One in the UK, while BBC America in the US will broadcast on the same day.

I wonder if its a coincidence that it begins on Saturday 23rd, or if it was specifically planned to be on the 50 years and 9 months anniversary......?

WHAT?

Doctor Who started on Saturday 23rd November 1963. If my calculations are correct, then the new series starts 50 years and 9 months later exactly.
Currently waiting for the next ITV Breakfast rebrand....

SO? It's not really anniversary is it?

There's no need to be so rude about it.
I was simply pointing out the fact that it started out on that date, but obviously I forgot free speech was banned. Rolling Eyes

I wasn't being rude. I was just displaying my flabbergastedness.
