As the official Doctor Who World Tour gets under way today, with premières of a feature-length adventure in London and Cardiff, the London Underground has joined in on the act.
Anyone passing through one of the Tube stations in the British capital earlier today will have come face to face with the above London Underground "Service Information" sign, complete with a cartoon representation of the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi.
The sign was spotted by one Tube passenger, Talia, who posted a photograph of it on her @trixie Twitter feed. The date at the top of the information board is that of Doctor Who's television return date.
"TFL gone mad / amazing! #doctorwho," she tweeted along with an image of the sign.
Presumably put there by an employee of Transport for London, who operate the capital's Underground services, the quotes actually originate from Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat at last year's 50th-anniversary celebrations, when he was discussing the enduring power of the sci-fi TV series.
Ahead of its television premiere later this month, Deep Breath will be screened in several cities around the world as part of the Doctor Who World Tour, which began in Cardiff at lunchtime.
Written by Steven Moffat (Sherlock) and directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers), the feature-length adventure stars Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and Jenna Coleman as Clara. Dan Starkey (Strax), Neve Mcintosh (Vastra) and Catrin Stewart (Jenny) return as guest stars.
Season 8 of Doctor Who runs for 12 weeks, then takes a short break before returning on Christmas Day for what has become the now-traditional Christmas special.
