All Aboard for Doctor Who’s New Season!

As we turn the final corner towards the new season, Doctor Who received a big screen premiere in central London

The first of three premiere events for this year’s season of Doctor Who has taken place in London. Series stars Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson toured the city in a traditional red London bus decked out in Doctor Who livery en route to the premiere event at the Regent Street Theatre. Along the way they visited key Doctor Who locations including Westminster and the London Eye (Rose), the Royal Albert Hall (Dalek Invasion of Earth, the Doctor Who Proms), Abbey Road (the upcoming The Devil’s Chord), and BBC Broadcasting House itself.

The premiere itself was attended by a host of familiar faces. Showrunner Russell T Davies was present of course, along with former showrunner Steven Moffat, who’s written a new episode for this season. In addition to Gatwa and Gibson, acting talent included Bonnie Langford (Mel), Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart), Anita Dobson (Mrs. Flood), Michelle Greenidge (Carla Sunday), and Callie Cooke (who guest stars in Dot and Bubble). Plus the TARDIS herself was there too!

The press and friends and the show were also in attendance naturally, though reviews are still under embargo for now. If getting to see Space Babies two weeks before everyone else wasn’t enough, they also got popcorn in a special TARDIS popcorn bucket, and a bag of, what else, jelly babies.

In the next couple of weeks the team will be flying out to showings in New York and Los Angeles to meet and greet the American press. Though we’ll have to wait and see whether they arrive by Routemaster.
