Doctor Who to Kick Off Global Tour with Cardiff Premiere

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 7:39am

The much-anticipated new series of Doctor Who will have its world premiere in Cardiff on August 7, BBC Wales has announced today (4 July, 2014).

Marking the start of the BBC One hit sci-fi drama’s spectacular world tour, the premiere will be fans’ first chance to see Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor alongside Jenna Coleman as on-screen companion Clara in episode one of the new series.

The stars will be attending the lunchtime St David’s Hall red carpet event, together with lead writer and producer Steven Moffat. Tickets will be available to the public from St David’s Hall Box Office from Monday, 7 July.

The feature-length premiere episode of the eighth series entitled “Deep Breath” will land on BBC One on Saturday 23 August, 2014.

BBC Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies said, “Doctor Who is getting even bigger and even better - and it's a real thrill that the show's fans here in Wales will be the very first to see the new Doctor at this very special premiere screening. Doctor Who has been made in Wales for almost ten years - and we're so proud of its worldwide success.”

Cabinet Member for Community Development, Co-operatives and Social Enterprise, Cllr Peter Bradbury, said, “We are delighted that St David's Hall, the National Concert Hall of Wales will be the host venue for this exciting worldwide premier.

“The launch of the Doctor Who World tour will be a fantastic event in our city and no doubt a highlight on our cultural calendar. We look forward to welcoming fans from across Europe to enjoy the hospitality of St David's Hall.”

The event is held in association with BFI Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, the full programme for which will be announced later this month.

…next stop London!

Award-winning children’s novelist and screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce confirmed as Doctor Who writer

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 5:05am

Children’s novelist and writer for the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony Frank Cottrell Boyce completes the line-up of writers for series 8 of the hit BBC One show Doctor Who.

Cottrell Boyce’s episode for the eagerly-anticipated eighth series will feature a cast of child actors including Harley Bird, the voice of household favourite Peppa Pig, alongside Abigail Eames (Harry and Paul, The Crimson Field), Ashley Foster (The Woman in Black) and Jaydon Harris-Wallace (CITV Text Santa).

Also known for films such as 24 Hour Party People and Millions (directed by Danny Boyle), Cottrell Boyce says: “Of all the thrills that pen and paper have brought into my life, there’s nothing that quite compares to the buzz of unlimited possibility that rushes through your fingers and into your brain when you write the words: ‘Interior … TARDIS’.”

“I was flabbergasted to be asked to write an episode - partly because I’ve been so absorbed in the last few series that I’d sort of forgotten that it wasn’t real.”

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, says: “Frank's script is pure magic - and everything I could have hoped for from the genius behind the Olympics opening ceremony! Doctor Who is born anew in the mind of a genius!”

The episode will be directed by Sheree Folkson (Casanova, Hit & Miss), and produced by Paul Frift (Escape Artist, Best Possible Taste, Restless).

Other writers confirmed for the eighth series are Mark Gatiss, Phil Ford, Gareth Roberts, Peter Harness, Steve Thompson and Jamie Mathieson.

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday 23rd August.
