Capaldi and Coleman - Dates on five continents

New Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi and his co-star Jenna Coleman are to embark on a world tour this August to promote the show's new season on BBC One.

The tour begins in Cardiff and London on August 7, and includes visits to Seoul, Sydney, New York, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro. For more details see: www.doctorwho.tv/worldtour.

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."

Executive producer and lead writer 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."

The new Doctor Who begins in August.
