BBC Worldwide have announced an international publicity tour to launch the new series of Doctor Who and introduce Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor. Just in case we are not ready to transfer our ardent love and admiration to our new Doctor (but of course we are).

Doctor Who: The World Tour will begin in the UK on August 7 and finish in Brazil on August 19. Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat will visit seven cities across five continents in 12 days, where they will attend fan events and media interviews. The tour will kick off in Cardiff, before taking in London , Seoul, Sydney, New York, Mexico City  and Rio de Janeiro.

Peter Capaldi said: “After eight months solid filming deep in the world of monsters, Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.”

Steven Moffat adds: “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.”

The current tour schedule can be seen at Doctor Who TV.
