Doctor Who World Tour To Hit Australia

Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and his onscreen companion Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) will be live on stage at the State Theatre, Sydney for a one-time-only fan event on Tuesday 12th 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 Australia as part of a major global tour to launch the latest series and introduce fans to the new Doctor. 
 
Join the stars for an exclusive Q&A hosted by long-time Doctor Who fan, Adam Spencer, and be the first in Australia to see Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor with a special screening of the feature-length premiere episode of the new series.   Fans will also be given the opportunity to put some of their own questions to the stars.
 
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) on August 19.
 
Says Helen Pendlebury, Head of Live Entertainment, BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand: ‘Australia has some of the most passionate Doctor Who fans in the world and we are delighted to offer them access to the Twelfth Doctor and his companion when they visit Sydney as part of Doctor Who: The World Tour.’
