The 12th Doctor may be materializing on TV screens here in the USA and Britain when the new season of DOCTOR WHO premieres on Aug. 23, but stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman (Clara) will be the feature attractions of a globe-spanning publicity tour that kicks off Aug. 7 in Cardiff, Wales, and stops in New York on Aug. 14.
The five-continent, seven-city, 12-day tour will see executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat pop up at select stops and also include London; Seoul, South Korea; Sydney, Mexico City; and Rio de Janeiro.
Said Capaldi (who is still filming his debut season):
After eight months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.
Capaldi was first introduced to fans as the incoming Doctor on Aug. 4, 2013, so what a difference a year makes, eh?
The eighth series of the revived DOCTOR WHO can be seen here in the colonies on BBC America beginning Aug. 23 with the feature-length premiere, “Deep Breath.”
