Fans, reporters and Daleks flock to meet Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman at Doctor Who premiere

Showrunner Steven Moffat joined the two stars in Cardiff ahead of the world premiere of the series eight opening episode


Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat met crowds of excited Doctor Who fans in Cardiff today as they prepared for the world premiere of Capaldi’s debut episode as the new Doctor.


The glossy photos of the event kindly shared by the BBC (like this one and the one above) are all very nice, of course, but we had an intrepid reporter on the ground, with a camera phone, getting in amongst it all to bring you candid shots of Capaldi, Coleman and Moffat, plus fans and Daleks.

The Tardis provides a great backdrop to Jenna Coleman’s striking red dress, as she and Steven Moffat tell the press how good this new Doctor Who is going to be…

…while a gold Dalek lurks quietly in the background, waiting for it’s chance to Exterminate!


And here’s a rather moody black-and-white shot of that Dalek because, why not?
