The tour will bring Capaldi, the D0ctor’s companion, Jenna Coleman, and the show’s lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, to seven cities across five continents in 12 days.
Beginning in the UL on August 7 and finishing on August 19 in Brazil. On Thursday, August 14, Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will appear together for the first time in the US when they arrive in New York.
Capaldi was introduced for a brief moment in last year’s 50th Anniversary special, which was simulcast in 98 countries and released in more than 1500 cinemas globally.
“It’s fantastic that so many people across the world love ‘Doctor Who,'” says Capaldi. “After 8 months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.”
Moffat also added,
“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.”
Richard De Croce, SVP, Programming for BBC American said,
“It’s a new beginning for one of the most popular series in the world and we couldn’t be more excited to have the Twelfth Doctor live in New York to promote the long awaited return of ‘Doctor Who’ on BBC America. It’s going to be epic.”
