For the first time ever Doctor Who is launching a global world tour to introduce Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor.
During the trip, the 12th Doctor and his on-screen companion Jenna Coleman, along with the show’s executive producer Steven Moffat, will visit seven cities across five continents in 12 days for a series of media and fan events.
The 12-day tour is the biggest promotional undertaking in the show’s history. It kicks off in Cardiff, Wales on August 7 and then heads to London, Seoul, Sydney, New York, Mexico City and Rio. The New York appearance is set for Aug. 14.
Peter said of the tour, “It’s fantastic that so many people across the world love Doctor Who. After eight months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.”
