BBC Worldwide Latin America announced today that tickets for the much anticipated Doctor Who: The World Tour fan event in Rio de Janeiro will go on sale on Thursday, August 14th at 14:00 (local Brazilian time). Tickets will be available for general sale through Ingresso Rápido (www.ingressorapido.com.br) and at the box office of Vivo Rio.
This marks the first time that fans of Doctor Who, the world’s longest running television sci-fi series, will see the stars of the show in Brazil. Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi and his on-screen companion Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) will be joined live on stage by Steven Moffat, Doctor Who’s Lead Writer and Executive Producer for an exclusive Q&A where fans will have the opportunity to put some of their own questions to the panel.
This one-time-only fan event will take place at the Vivo Rio Auditorium on Monday, August 18th at 18:00 HS. Ticket prices will range from R$60 to R$120 (plus taxes). Due to time constraints and local regulation, entry is restricted to persons aged 18 and over.
BBC Worldwide Latin America has partnered with Livraria Cultura stores to play a video relay of the Q&A session in selected stores on the night allowing fans another opportunity to see the event. The participating stores are: Sao Paulo; Campinas; Recife; Curitiba; Porto Alegre and Rio de Janeiro. These events are free but limited to ticket holders only. The tickets will be allocated on a first come first serve basis at participating Livraria Cultura stores on Friday August 15th as the stores open.
