Next week, Doctor Who goes “on tour” with the BBC Outreach bus which will take Matt Smith and Karen Gillan (the new Doctor and his companion Amy Pond) around the United Kingdom for 5 preview screenings of The Eleventh Hour.
Kicking off on Monday, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan will visit five communities in Northern Ireland, Scotland and England, and with exclusive footage, photos and reports from the new BBC Official Doctor Who website anyone who isn’t invited to one of these events (that’s most of us!) can keep up with the Doctor Who roadshow.
The tour bus is scheduled to visit Belfast on Monday before proceeding to Inverness, the home town of the striking Karen Gillan. North East city Sunderland follows with the Manchester suberb of Salford next on the list before the tour concludes in Matt’s hometown of Northampton on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, to add an extra layer of value to us unfortunates that won’t be attending these screenings, the BBC’s new look Official Doctor Who website is offering the chance to put questions to Smith and Gillan.
