Deep Breath Will Be Getting a Cinema Outting

Last year Doctor Who released its 50th anniversary special in theaters across the globe, and now for Capaldi’s debut episode, Deep Breath, it’ll be returning to theaters! Although there isn’t any word yet on whether Capaldi’s debut will be simulcast as strictly as The Day of the Doctor was, the cinema screenings will be broadcast the night the show airs, on August 23rd, 2014.

Steven Moffat comments:

Last November the Doctor didn’t just conquer the world on television, he did it in the cinemas too. And like the show-off he is, he can’t resist another go – one taste of the silver screen is never enough. On August 23rd the new Doctor will begin his new adventures on BBC One and in cinemas all over the world. Movie-land beware – Capaldi is coming to get you!

The premiere episode is just over 75 minutes, and if the script leak is anything to go by it my actually be upwards of 79 minutes, making it the longest single episode of New Who. After reading the script personally, I’m very much looking forward to seeing this episode in theaters.

More information to come in the coming weeks, like the number of screens, countries streaming, and individual theaters involved. The Day of the Doctor screened on, reportedly, 1500 screens, so Deep Breath may get similar treatment. Are you planning on seeing it in theaters? With your family? Have a season premiere party with your friends? Or just watch it alone with some popcorn in the dark?

      1. I give it a million out of a million and Peter Capaldi is an epic Doctor.Pretty scary! It is well worth a trip to the cinema. I have blogged about the whole day, it was amazing.


  1. Let’s hope the BBC or whoever was in charge of ticket sales don’t screw up again, getting tickets for Day of the Doctor was ridiculous. (They decided to sell them at a random time instead of the time they told everyone)


  2. If it were a full-on “Doctor Who” movie, I’d definitely go. But it’s not. It’s just a simulscreening in cimemas at the same time that it’s on BBC One HD. The reason I do go to cinemas is because if I’ve been anticipating a movie, that’s the first way of seeing it, rather than waiting for the Blu-ray release or TV premier. But since I’ve got two options that won’t change how long I have to wait (since I live in at least one of the countries that will definitely see it at least first), I’d prefer to choose where I sit, with not much people. Plus, I can hold my own marathon. And this show works best on television. That’s why I’m trying to get to one of the preview screenings, because that’s an example of what I’m trying to say.

    It’s almost as if the BBC are trialling whether there’s demand for a movie version…
