Doctor Who World Tour Hits Seoul And Sydney!

This week, the Doctor Who World Tour rolled into Seoul and Sydney, taking the brand new episode Deep Breath to two audiences that wouldn’t normally get to see it before fans in the UK.

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman only finished shooting Doctor Who on Thursday night. The following day they were whisked to South Korea to the first of their overseas events, comprising the screening and a Q&A, some of which will also feature Steven Moffat (depending on work commitments).

The Seoul event was covered on Saturday here on Kasterborous. The following photos were provided by BBC Worldwide afterwards:

If you missed Saturday’s event (or more likely, the live feed!) there is a video of highlights:

Isn’t the fan reaction out there superb?

To get a better feel for things, there is also this short film that the BBC’s official Doctor Who YouTube page has released…

So, from Seoul to Sydney, where the TARDIS took Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman today. Following the Seoul event, the scheduled Q&As have been moved to after the screenings of Deep Breath (yes, Mr Disgruntled of Nantwich, some kids in South Korea saw it before you) rather than before. Probably something to do with the quality of questions during the first event…

In Sydney today (yesterday if you’re down under) Peter Capaldi received an astonishing standing ovation when introduced to fans at the screening.

We’ve also been treated to the following images:

That’s it for a couple of days, until Sunday, when Jenna and Peter will hit Mexico City. You’ll be able to watch the Q&A on YouTube from around 6pm UK time.

    Greetings Christian! My 8 year old son and I attended the event last night in Sydney, and whilst I’m clearly not supposed to talk about the episode (although if I remember correctly, you’ve seen it…) we thought it was darker, edgier and most of all FUNNY! How good is Mr Capaldi?! And I have to admit that I fall on the side of Strax, and really enjoy each Sontaran slip up. They did a great job on the world tour (my son and I were filmed twice – I think he’s going to be on the YouTube channel, as I had to sign a bunch of release forms), although Jenna seemed a little shell shocked. It was almost as if her character is reflecting her feelings towards the show. Last comment – didn’t like the new titles. Like what’s they did with PC, but the rest I found a bit gimmicky….Happy Wednesday!
