World Tour Launch Event in Cardiff

The start of the #DWWorldTour in Cardiff was a blast. Next stop: Seoul, South Korea!

Fans, reporters and Daleks flock to meet Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman at Doctor Who premier

Showrunner Steven Moffat joined the two stars in Cardiff ahead of the world premier of the series eight opening episode

Peter CapaldiJenna Coleman and Steven Moffat met crowds of excited Doctor Who fans in Cardiff today as they prepared for the world premier of Capaldi’s debut episode as the new Doctor.

The glossy photos of the event kindly shared by the BBC (like this one and the one above) are all very nice of course but we had an intrepid reporter on the ground, with a camera phone, getting in amongst it all to bring you candid shots of Capaldi, Coleman and Moffat, plus fans and Daleks. [x]

The World Tour Begins in Cardiff Tomorrow

The Doctor Who World Tour begins tomorrow (Thursday, 7 August) with a memorable launch event in Cardiff!
Peter Capaldi, the Twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman, Clara, will be meeting the public as they walk up the red carpet outside Cardiff Central Library, from 11am, en route to St. David’s Hall where the opening episode of the new series will receive its premiere. But spectators beware… Daleks and Cybermen will also be invading the red carpet!
Jason Mohammad will be hosting a Q&A with Peter, Jenna and lead writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, right after the screening and then the team say farewell (for now!) to Cardiff as the World Tour moves onto the rest of the UK and beyond with a journey that takes in everywhere from the South Bank to Brazil!
If you’re a fan but unable to get to Cardiff for the launch you can follow the fun by tuning into BBC Wales’ Jason Mohammad on the day from 10am. He’ll be bringing you all the red carpet action including chats with the cast and crew.
If you are coming along to see the red carpet event, why not show your support why wearing a mask of the new Doctor? Download one now and simply follow the instructions! Or if you’d prefer your mask to be on the monstrous side, you can go as the very latest version of the Cybermen… [x]

Peter Capaldi on his excitement ahead of the tour: “It’s fantastic that so many people across the world love Doctor Who. After 8 months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.

Executive Producer and Lead Writer Steven Moffat adds: “I’ve always thought we’d all be a lot safer if the Doctor conquered the world, instead of the Daleks. Now with Jenna and Peter leading the charge, it looks like it’s going to happen. I’ll be bringing up the rear to handle the exposition scenes, and maybe carry some bags.”

Richard De Croce, SVP, Programming for BBC AMERICA says: “It’s a new beginning for one of the most popular series in the world and we couldn’t be more excited to have the Twelfth Doctor live in New York to promote the long awaited return of Doctor Who on BBC AMERICA. It’s going to be epic.”

Comedian and TV host Frank Skinner to guest star in the new series of Doctor Who:

Room 101 host Frank Skinner is the latest name confirmed to guest star in an episode of the new series of Doctor Who this Autumn.
Skinner says: “I love this show. I subscribe to Doctor Who magazine, I’ve got a TARDIS ringtone, a five-foot cardboard Dalek in my bedroom and when I got the call saying they wanted me to read for the part, I was in the back of my tour bus watching episode three of The Sensorites. I am beyond excited.”
He is currently touring the UK with his stand-up show Frank Skinner: Man In a Suit, alongside presenting the Saturday Morning Breakfast Show on Absolute Radio. Skinner previously appeared in the one-off Doctor Who 50th anniversary comedy homage The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.
Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, says: “It’s no secret that Frank’s been pitching vigorously to get into Doctor Who for a while. He’s been volunteering to be “third monster on the left” as long as I’ve been in this job. But now, in Jamie Mathieson’s sparkling script, we finally have a part that can showcase all of Frank’s famous wit and charm. Hopefully he’ll get out of my garden now.”

New Guest star in Doctor Who & they’re going to be filming in Lanzarote!!
“Hermione Norris to guest star in Doctor Who opposite Peter Capaldi when Doctor Who returns this Autumn.
Speaking about her casting, Hermione Norris said, ‘It’s exciting to be part of such an iconic show, and one that my kids can watch!!!’
Norris has recently been starring in The Crimson Field on BBC One, and is no stranger to solving mysteries having played Ros Myers in the BAFTA award-winning drama Spooks. Prior to that she starred in comedy-drama Cold Feet.
Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, said, ‘It’s a testament to the quality of Peter Harness’s intense and emotional script, that we’ve been able to attract an actress of the brilliance of Hermione Norris. And for the first time since 1984, the Doctor Who production team is heading to Lanzarote. The Doctor is returning to the scene of an old adventure - but there have been sinister changes since his last visit.’
The episode is written by Peter Harness (Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Wallander), produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Paul Wilmshurst (Strike Back, Combat Kids). The episode also stars Ellis George, Tony Osoba and Phil Nice.

It was one thing to include [Eccleston] among all the other archive Doctors, as they flew in to save the day — in fact, it would have been disgraceful to have left anyone out — but placing him in that scene might have given the impression he’d actually turned up for filming, which would have been crossing the line.

Not taking part in the 50th was a difficult decision for Chris, taken after a lot of thought and with great courtesy, and not respecting his wishes would have been grossly unprofessional and disrespectful to a good man and a great Doctor. Number 9 may not have turned up for the celebrations, but there would have been no party without him.

All three have been nominated in the ‘Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form’ category and the winners will be announced on 17 August at the 2014 Hugo Awards ceremony.

Commenting on the nominations, Doctor Who’s head writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, said, ‘For Doctor Who to receive three Hugo nominations in its anniversary year is completely thrilling. We are all over the moon. I’m particularly pleased about The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot as that was my acting debut. I remain available for any parts requiring a black jumper and slightly unrealistic hair.’

The prestigious Hugo Awards, presented annually since 1955, are named after Hugo Gernsback, founder of the influential science fiction magazine, Amazing Stories. Best of luck to all this year’s nominees!
