The opening episode of Doctor Who Series 8, ‘Deep Breath’ will be screened in cinemas worldwide.
Following the success of the global cinema release of ‘The Day of the Doctor’, Peter Capaldi’s first episode will be shown on the big screen in cinemas around the world on Saturday, 23rd August.
Doctor Who will make a spectacular return in the feature-length premiere episode, ‘Deep Breath’, which is directed by Ben Wheatley and written by Steven Moffat.
The beginning of the Twelfth Doctor’s era stars Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, and sees the return of the Paternoster Gang - Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax - in a pulse-racing adventure through Victorian London.
Steven Moffat commented: “Last November, the Doctor didn’t just conquer the world on television, he did it in the cinemas too. And like the show-off he is, he can’t resist another go - one taste of the silver screen is never enough. On August 23rd, the new Doctor will begin his new adventures on BBC One and in cinemas all over the world. Movie-land beware - Capaldi is coming to get you!”
‘Deep Breath’ will be screened in participating cinemas around the world from Saturday, 23rd August. More information about the cinema screenings will be released over the coming weeks.
