Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are to embark on a Doctor Who World Tour, to promote the upcoming new season of the science-fiction television drama series.
As part of the BBC's most comprehensive publicity of the series to date, the 12-day tour is set to take in seven cities across five continents.
Peter Capaldi (a.k.a. the Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (who plays his companion, Clara) will attend fan events and media interviews along the way.
As published by, the tour will visit two of the UK's capital cities — Cardiff in Wales, where production of Doctor Who has been based since 2003 — and London, England. The time-travelling bandwagon will then head out to to Seoul in South Korea; Sydney, Australia; New York, USA; Mexico City, Mexico; and finally, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The whole event, which is being promoted under the hashtag #DWWorldTour, follows on from the huge success of the show's 50th anniversary world-wide celebrations, which culminated last year, when The Day of the Doctor was simulcast in 94 countries — a world record.
Of the tour, Capaldi said: "It's fantastic that so many people across the world love Doctor Who. After eight months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans."
Meanwhile, Who showrunner Steven Moffat added: "I've always thought we'd all be a lot safer if the Doctor conquered the world, instead of the Daleks. Now with Jenna and Peter leading the charge, it looks like it's going to happen. I'll be bringing up the rear to handle the exposition scenes, and maybe carry some bags."
Capaldi’s first full season of Doctor Who — which has been in production since late 2013 and is still currently filming — is set to return to television screens some time later in August.
