Thanks to Coming Soon, we now know that BBC Worldwide is planning on showing the two-part Doctor Who series finale in cinemas.
Awesome news, right? Well…
It’s only in America! Yep, 700 cinemas across the USA will be treated to this event. But the most annoying part? Its LAST years series finale. That’s right, you’ll be able to enjoy both Dark Water and Death in Heaven in RealD 3D and Dolby Atmos sound. Hooray, indeed. Its not all doom and gloom though, as afterward a special prequel minis ode from the series 9 opener The Magicians Apprentice will be shown, on top of a Q&A with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, hosted by everyones favourite nerd, Will Wheaton.
Tickets go on sale on July 31st via Fathom Events. True the series 8 finale had a lot of great cinematic moments (that UNIT plane sequence from Death in Heaven is an obvious standout) but why, oh WHY they aren’t showing The Magician’s Apprentice afterward just baffles me – the event takes place over two nights, the first of which being the 15th of September – you know – THE NIGHT SERIES 9 KICKS OFF?!
