Doctor Who is heading back to the Cinema

The BBC have confirmed that the upcoming première for Doctor Who Series 8 will be coming to cinemas worldwide after box office success with last year's 50th Anniversary special.

Although locations have yet to be confirmed, the BBC's press release does mention that there will be cinemas participating not just in the UK, but in worldwide locations as well, to screen Ben Wheatley's 75-minute-long opener Deep Breath. As with The Day of The Doctor, presumably there will be both a simulcast showing as well as opportunities over the weekend to watch Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor in action for the first time.

The decision to return to cinemas comes off the back of The Day of The Doctor's monumental success last November - over 1,500 cinemas showed the anniversary special, which broke records as it entered the top 3 for its weekend at the Box office in both the US and the UK, going up against the likes of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Gravity.

Further details on participating locations will be revealed at a later date.
