The first episode of the upcoming new series of Doctor Who will get its premiere at this year’s MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival in August.
The event will also include a “masterclass” on BBC drama Sherlock, featuring appearances from co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat (who is also showrunner on Doctor Who).
The three-day festival opens with a live edition of ITV2’s comedy panel show Celebrity Juice, hosted by Keith Lemon and featuring team captains Holly Willoughby and Emma Bunton.
The Richard Dunn memorial interview sees Caitlin Moran quizzing Charlie Brooker, while a section called BBC Director-General 2.0 will ask experts what key decisions face Mark Thompson’s successor.
Elisabeth Murdoch is set to deliver the festival’s keynote speech, the MacTaggart Lecture, while delegates will decide the Channel of the Year Awards, in which Sherlock competes for Terrestrial Programme of the Year.
The festival, now in its 37th year, celebrates TV’s biggest successes of the year and addresses the current and future issues facing the industry.
It takes place between Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 August and brings together industry stars and insiders, as well as members of the public willing to pay between £250 and £740 for a three-day pass.
