Fancy seeing Peter Capaldi’s first episode as The Doctor almost
a month early? Want to rub shoulders with some of the cast and
crew? You’d better get yourself down to Cardiff pretty soon

Ahead of its television debut on 23 August, the BBC will hold a world premiere for Deep
, the first episode of season eight (or season 34 if
you’re counting the original run), in the Welsh capital on 7
August. BBC Wales has produced the show since its return to
broadcast in 2005, and the city has become its home.

Described by the Beeb as a “lunchtime red carpet event”, the
premiere will have series producer Steven Moffat and the show’s
actors in attendance. Tickets will be available to purchase in
person only from St
David’s Hall
box office from Monday, 7 July.

The event is being run as part of the British Film Institute’s
Days of Fear and Wonder
season, which will see genre classics
The Day the Earth Caught Fire, The Man Who Fell to
, and Flash Gordon screened outdoors at the British Museum at the end of August.

The Cardiff premiere also kicks off the Doctor Who world
, which will take Capaldi and co. to meet fans in London,
New York, Mexico City, Seoul, Sydney, and Rio De Janeiro between
7-19 August. The tour does, however, mean that for the first time
in years, there won’t be a Who panel at San Diego Comic-Con, which has previously seen some big
announcements regarding the series made. Better keep an eye on tour
reports for any TARDIS-related info.
