THE much-anticipated new series of Doctor Who will have its world premiere in Cardiff on August 7, BBC Wales has announced.

Marking the start of the BBC One hit sci-fi drama’s spectacular world tour, the premiere will be fans’ first chance to see Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor alongside Jenna Coleman as on-screen companion Clara in episode one of the new series.

The stars will be attending the lunchtime St David’s Hall red carpet event, together with lead writer and producer Steven Moffat.

The feature-length premiere episode of the eighth series entitled “Deep Breath” will land on BBC One on Saturday, August 23.

BBC Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies said: “Doctor Who is getting even bigger and even better - and it's a real thrill that the show's fans here in Wales will be the very first to see the new Doctor at this very special premiere screening. Doctor Who has been made in Wales for almost ten years - and we're so proud of its worldwide success.”

The event is held in association with BFI Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, the full programme for which will be announced later this month.

…next stop London!

Tickets are available from St David’s Hall Box Office on 029 2087 8444 or online at www.stdavidshallcardiff.co.uk
