Showcase Cinemas Peterborough is providing a special screening of the feature-length season premiere of Doctor Who: Deep Breath on Saturday night (August 23) at 7.35pm.
In a dramatic pulse-racing adventure through Victorian London, this two-hour opener marks the beginning of the Twelfth Doctor’s era – with Peter Capaldi taking over the reins from Matt Smith.
Helmed by acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Sightseers and A Field in England), and written by lead writer/executive producer Steven Moffat, Deep Breath will see Jenna Coleman star as the Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald – and see the return of fan favourites the Paternoster Gang (Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax).
Tickets are available now from the Showcase box-office, and it’s advised that cinema-goers get to the screening by 7.40pm as there’ll be a six-minute cinema-exclusive feature before the main episode begins at 7.50pm.
This is followed by another exclusive after the screening has finished: live streaming via satellite to cinemas across the country – featuring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat in a question and answer session.
Jonathan Wheeler, General Manager of the Boongate-based multiplex, told ESP: “When we screened the Anniversary Special we sold over 800 tickets, which shows that Doctor Who is very popular in the Greater Peterborough area.”
