Doctor Who fans arriving in Cardiff for the much-anticipated world premiere screening of the first episode from the new series, will get an opportunity to see the new Doctor on the red carpet, ahead of the event, August 7.
Peter Capaldi, the Twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman, his on-screen companion Clara, will be meeting the public as they walk up the red carpet outside Cardiff Central Library, from 11am, en route to the sell-out screening at St. David’s Hall. Joining them in the Hayes will be Cybermen and Daleks.
Brian Minchin, Executive Producer of Doctor Who said, “After seven months of filming the moment has finally arrived when we get to introduce Peter Capaldi to the world. And where better to start but Cardiff, the home of Doctor Who!”
BBC Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies says: “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.”
