The Doctor Who World Tour continued yesterday with Peter and Jenna setting their sights on the Big Apple!

The cast and crew arrived in New York for the US screening of Series 8’s opening episode Deep Breath which will premiere worldwide next weekend.

As expected, Whovians turned out in force to welcome them to the city, and many of the avid fans had queued overnight for a glimpse of our new Time Lord and his companion. Now that’s what you call dedication to the cause!

See spoiler-free highlights of the New York Q&A in the video below. Next stop, Mexico City!

Peter and Jenna journeyed to the land down under earlier this week for the next leg of their Doctor Who World Tour.

They were met with a rapturous response from the Australian fans who had gathered in Sydney for an exclusive screening of Series 8’s premiere episode Deep Breath.

In the Q&A that followed, our new Time Lord Peter Capaldi received a standing ovation as he took to the stage. “It’s feeling less real by the second,” he told the audience. Watch highlights of the Q&A below.

Doctor Who has never been a show to do things by halves and as such the new series is having not one but SEVEN separate premieres.

As if Peter and Jenna weren’t busy enough already, they’re currently on a whistle-stop tour of the globe to promote their forthcoming adventures. They’ve already set their sights on the UK, South Korea and Australia with cities in the US, Mexico and Brazil still to come, and if you’re lucky enough to be at any of the events, we’d love to see your pictures!

Obviously you can’t take pictures of the Deep Breath screenings (spoilers, sweetie!) but we’d love to see your pics of the stars meeting fans, signing autographs plus any coverage of Whovians having a general whale of a time – and even better if they’re in costume, too!

You can tweet us your tour pics @WhovianNet or send them in an email to worldtour@whoviannet.co.uk. We’ll include as many as we can in our Gallery.

Series 8 will begin on 23rd August with a feature-length premiere episode Deep Breath.

Peter Capaldi has revealed that he has enlisted the help of previous Doctors to help him prepare for his own journey in the TARDIS.

Speaking at the Doctor Who World Tour event in Sydney, the actor admitted that the pressure of the iconic role can be “overwhelming at times”. “You’ve got to take it a day at a time,” he said. “Matt Smith and David Tennant have been very supportive. I can talk to them anytime. It’s quite a small club, and only the other actors who’ve played the Doctor recognise the realities of what being in this position is like.”

He continued: “But one is very aware that you’re stepping into a role that has been around for a long time. It means a lot to people. It’s a delightful position, but it’s a responsibility.”

Series 8 will begin on 23rd August with a feature-length premiere episode Deep Breath.

Over the weekend Peter and Jenna materialised in Korea for the next leg of their whistle-stop Doctor Who world tour.

The stars of our show were met with the warmest of welcomes from excited fans in Seoul who had gathered for an exclusive screening of Series 8’s premiere episode, Deep Breath, followed by a live Q&A with the cast.

There was huge excitement in the air as the duo landed in their first destination outside of the UK and you can see highlights of the day in the video below. Next stop… Sydney!

“It’s amazing to step off a plane after 8 months of filming and be greeted with so much enthusiasm from people in a different country who love Doctor Who so much,” Jenna said.

Peter and Jenna will be travelling the world over the next fortnight in preparation for Series 8 and we’ll be able to share in their journey from the comfort of our very own homes!

Each country’s Q&A event will be available to watch online as it happens, starting with today’s destination, Seoul, which will be streamed live on the official Doctor Who YouTube page from 12:30pm (UK time) on Saturday 9th August.

Find out the dates and times for the upcoming Q&A live streams in the video below.

Series 8 will begin on 23rd August with a feature-length premiere episode Deep Breath.

UPDATE 11/8/14 via DoctorWho.tv - We will no longer be live streaming the fan Q&A event from the Doctor Who World Tour in Sydney. We’ve listened to your feedback and agree that it’s much more exciting for fans (both at the events and online) if the Q&A session takes place AFTER screenings ofDeep Breath. That way, the panel will be able to chat about the Twelfth Doctor and the episode in much more detail. The World Tour is the first time that a current Doctor and companion have officially visited Australia, so we want to make sure that we make the most out of their time with fans.

We will still publish a (spoiler-free) highlights video from event within 24 hours of it happening, and a longer version will then be made available after Deep Breath has started to air around the world on 23 August.

We appreciate that this may be disappointing news to some of our loyal fans who are not able to attend event in person or were looking forward to the live stream, but we’re confident that this now means you’ll be getting much better, more exciting video content to enjoy.

The sun was shining, the fans were chanting and the Daleks were on their best behaviour as the Series 8 World Tour kicked off in style in Cardiff today.

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman took to the red carpet to meet and greet the Whovians who had queued for hours for a glimpse of our new Doctor and his companion Clara. They were joined by Steven Moffat, Samuel Anderson, who will be seen in the new series as Danny, as well as the Cybermen, who have never been known to miss out on a party!

After signing autographs and posing for photographs, it was time for the world premiere of Series 8’s feature-length premiere episode, Deep Breath, at St David’s Hall. “World Tour is well and truly underway,” Peter commented. “Farewell Cardiff… Next stop London. Hope to see you on tour, or somewhere soon in time and space!”

After debuting the new series in the home of Doctor Who, they were en route to London…

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will be jetting off on a 12 day worldwide tour to launch the new series of Doctor Who, it has been announced today.

The BBC has revealed that the show’s stars will visit various destinations around the globe to meet the fans and promote their new adventures to coincide with the premiere of Series 8 this August.

The tour will begin in Cardiff and London on 7th August.

They will then be travelling to cities in South Korea, Australia, the US, Mexico and Brazil.

“It is fantastic that so many fans across the world love Doctor Who,” Peter Capaldi said. “After 8 months of filming, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.”

Steven Moffat, who will be accompanying “Team TARDIS” on the tour, added: “I 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 is going to happen! I will be bringing up the rear to handle all the exposition scenes, and possibly carry some bags…”
