Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and his onscreen companion Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) will be live on stage for a one-time-only fan event in Mexico City at the Teatro Metropólitan on Sunday, 17 August and in Rio de Janeiro at the Vivo Rio Auditorium on Monday, 18 August.
Following on from last year’s smash-hit 50th anniversary celebrations for Doctor Who, BBC Worldwide is thrilled to be bringing the stars of the show to Mexico and Brazil as part of a major global tour to launch the latest series and introduce fans to the new Doctor.
Fans will be able to see the stars for an exclusive Q&A, where they will be given the opportunity to put some of their own questions to the talent.
Doctor Who: The World Tour will see Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman circumnavigate the globe, visiting seven cities across five continents in 12 days. The tour will kick off in Cardiff, Wales on August 7, before heading to London (UK), Seoul (South Korea), Sydney (Australia), New York (US), Mexico City (Mexico) and finishing in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).
“Doctor Who has one of the world’s most dedicated and active fans who have helped a great deal to popularize the show in Latin America. We are excited to bring Doctor Who: The World Tour to both Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro. This is a unique opportunity for the fans in these cities to see for the first time the main cast of the series and have a memorable experience”, says Fred Medina, executive vice-president and managing director, BBC Worldwide Latin America and US Hispanic.
