If you’ve ever wanted to go on a round-the-world trip with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, this might be your best chance – the documentary charting their global series-eight press tour is coming to BBC3 this Friday, 16th January, at 7:00pm.


Doctor Who: Earth Conquest – The World Tour takes in all stages of the the 12-day trip, which began in Cardiff before stopping off in London, Seoul in South Korea, Sydney Australia, New York, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro, with every event including Q & A sessions with the audience.

The 50-minute film (which was previously only available on the series 8 DVD) also features behind-the-scenes footage of Capaldi, Coleman and series showrunner Steven Moffat as they explore the impact Doctor Who has had on a global audience.
