As part of BBC Worldwide’s global event celebrations to mark Peter Capaldi’s debut series of Doctor Who, UK fans will have the opportunity to see the first episode of series 8 in cinemas in the UK and Ireland, as well as on BBC One, on 23 August 2014.
To celebrate the launch of series 8, an exclusive cinema event will take place at London’s Odeon Leicester Square on August 23 with some very special guests in attendance.
This one-off event will feature a ‘never seen before’ five minute video from an upcoming Doctor Who DVD release and a special ten minute behind-the-scenes of episode 1 feature, followed by a Q&A with the guest stars that will be streamed live into participating cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
A limited number of tickets for the Leicester Square Cinema Event will be available to the public and can be purchased via Odeon.com, on Friday 1 August at 10am.
Cinema tickets for other participating cinemas will go on sale Friday 1 August from 11am.
More information regarding cinemas screening the episode and showing the live stream of the Q&A from the Leicester Square Cinema Event will be made available on doctorwho.tv soon.
