New “Doctor Who” Peter Capaldi to be Introduced in 7-City World Tour
The newest Time Lord to come to screens in the new series of the beloved BBC show “Doctor Who” is Peter Capaldi. Capaldi’s casting was met with skepticism by fans who were rallying for the first ever female Doctor, or for a person of colour to be cast in the role. Alas, another white male was cast in the role.
But let’s face it, odds are fans will come to love him in time.
No doubt hoping to speed up the process of that acceptance, the BBC is putting Capaldi and on-screen companion Jenna Coleman (and, in some cities, head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat) will be traveling the globe to promote the new season, which airs in August on BBC America.
And, because I’m sure that that’s all that you care about, here are the places and the dates:
- Cardiff, Wales, UK – August 7
- London, England, UK – TBD
- Seoul, South Korea – TBD
- Sydney, Australia – TBD
- New York, NY, USA – August 14
- Mexico City, Mexico – TBD
- Rio de Janiero, Brazil – August 19
The tour marks the biggest promotional undertaking in the show’s 50-year history. Of the upcoming tour, Capaldi said,
“After eight months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.”
…Pretty standard stuff… But just wait until he actually meets the Whovians.
