I didn't realize there was a large fan base in South Korea! That's really cool.

Annoyed that they aren't coming to Scotland, not like half the cast was born here :s

There's no way I'll be going to any of these places on the tour. Oh well. At least there's a chance I'll be going to my first convention in August (Sheffield Film and Comic Con). :)

I'm so sad this isn't coming to Los Angeles! Peter Capaldri and TV host Craig Ferguson was in a punk band together and are old friends!

No where near... and even if it were, I couldn't afford it. :( 

Bring on August 23rd already!!

I'm a whovian in South Korea. I was very excited to come to the doctor in Seoul! I LOVE YOU DOCTOR WHO!

I wish I could be there. By "there" I mean in any of these tour locations.

I am just so proud of how widespread the show. From England to Korea to America, every nation and culture are united by the Doctor. Can't stop grinning.

Any idea when London details are coming? I missed the Cardiff selling cause the website was so bad...

What of London then? What's happening there as that is the only conceivable place this tour is going that I can get to!

I may not be able to make it to Sydney but at least I was in Melbourne last weekend to see Arthur Darvill at Comic Con :)

Hmmm...how fast can I get from Perth to Sydney before my parents notice I stole their money to pay for the flights?

I always find it funny reading about these tours and seeing people in Europe saying "It's only the next country over, I'll probably go." Then down here in Australia we're like "It's the next city over. That's days away."

Deus_Ex_Machina

Good to see Australia getting some recognition. I sometimes think the Doctor Who team have no idea how big the show is here. If only it weren't in Sydney. To far away for me.

It'd be nice if they bothered to ever do a UK tour, rather than just the lower half then everywhere else in the world. No love for Scotland?

@Polyphase As a Melbourne Man myself -- Nothing is going to stop me getting there!

@doctorwhomultiverse  Unlike Comic Cons everywhere, people can probably AFFORD to attend these events, without taking a second mortgage out on their homes, or handing over the titles to their cars.

Yes! I've been hoping for a while to see Craig interview his old BFF, aka the new Doctor. Craig's a major life-long Whovian and has done more DW cast interviews than anyone in the US, pretty darn sure. (Check "the YouTubes.") Craig's show will be over in December, so not much time left. @craigyferg (Twitter) #CBS (Capaldi had a great interview with Craig in 2009, BTW.)

It's broadcast in Canada, USA, Mexico, Latin America, Brazil, Argentina, UK, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, India, South Korea, China, Japan, Australia, Ireland, South Africa, The Arab Countries, and many, many more!

I'm thinking the same! There's nothing so far but it's on the 8th :(

@ShayHatchard1 Considering it sold out almost immediately I think you'll find a hell of a lot of people would disagree with you

I live near Brisbane. I am not happy that Sydney is several days away by car or several thousand dollars in return air fairs. I cannot remember the last time any of the stars if Doctor Who even came to Australia. I find it frustrating that they would rather do a "5 continents in 12 days" rather than do a proper tour with several stops in several continents, rather than a one-night event in the middle of the week.

I hear you, I'm currently in the middle of a 10-day road trip from Perth to Alice Springs and back again...

@zketchgeek They were in Inverness a few years ago... when Karen and Matt did their DW tour. They started with Inverness and ended it with Northampton, I think.

Funny thing is, you're probably closer to the UK one there in Scotland than I am to the one in my own country here in Australia.

I suppose, but I wouldn't call it a 'series'. It only went to two cities. But that particular event had slipped my mind I admit.

@Deus_Ex_Machina The UK's transport infrastructure is such that geography is very misleading for travel time. It would be quicker for me to get to an airport and fly abroad than it would be for me to get the train to Cardiff, for example. Even London, 60 miles away, takes 90 minutes on the train from me - and while obviously that's a much quicker journey time than for the vast majority of the rest of the world - it's not what you'd call efficient, and you just wouldn't think about driving to central London if there was a clear alternative.

zketchgeek

@Deus_Ex_Machina True, but it is still expensive to get a place to stay in London, plus buying a ticket for the actual screening. All this whilst just being 16. Lil bit difficult.

It's tough to be an American Whovian. We seem to be a rare breed...in a culture that loves American football, big explosions and lots of beer, fans of a quirky, pleasant little British sci fi can be outcasts sometimes XD

Count yourself as lucky. We don't even have an interstate train system. Point still takes though.

We seem to be growing, though! At least among the younger crowd.

But less all the time. There's a *Waiting List* to attend the monthly fan club meetings of The Real OC Time Lords - a waiting list! (Here in Orange County, California.)
