Doctor Who World Tour: Cardiff Launch Pics

Doctor Who kicked off its World Tour today in Cardiff. Here’s a selection of pics from the event featuring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Samuel Anderson, Steven Moffat and the Daleks & Cybermen for good measure.

Peter Capaldi said: “Thanks to everyone who came along today to help us launch the new series in style. Such warmth and an amazing turn-out… Thank you!”

I haven't seen it published on this site yet, so here it goes. Who wants a new picture of Peter and Jenna?: images.doctorwhonews.net/image.php?pid=13689

Jenna looked very stylish in that red dress (when doesn't she).


I bet the guys wearing Cybermen outfits were sweating like hell.

Kudos to whoever lugged the TARDIS prop up to the top of the keep at Cardiff Castle- It's no mean feat getting to the top without a 9 foot tall phone box...

(or they could have just used a crane, of course...failing that, a UNIT helicopter?)

Definitively cool, Not sure about the grey t shirt though. Jenna likes wearing red and it really suits her. Can't wait to see them interact :)

Awwmahgawd, in the thumnail for that video I'm literally a frame off camera. I recognize the security guy to the left of the shot. I remember watching Jenna, Moffat and Capaldi's interviews live! This event was totally awesome, the world tour will be absolutely brilliant. 

No spoilers, but Deep Breath was generally a very solid and enjoyable episode. There's a lot to criticise if you're looking for it, but there's also a helluva lot to love. It was 'dark', if you'll mind the word. It was the scariest Doctor Who has been for while, as it was very suspenseful and had a lot of moments where you actually felt like the characters were in genuine danger, which is something that's been missing from Doctor Who recently. 

This is also the episode that will hopefully win over all of the Clara naysayers, as she is absolutely brilliant in it. Like, she's amazing. Like, her best episode so far. Her character actually, like, has a character, and you really do get a sense of who she actually is. She also proves herself massively as a companion. In a way, this is much more her story than the Doctors. 

Not forgetting about the Doctor, he's amazing. Peter Capaldi will own the role. The future is in safe hands...

I've lost count of how many outfits Jenna has worn today, but there's a great photo of Peter and Jenna together for the London leg, and she looks even more stunning :-)

All these pictures are good but the one I like is the picture of Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in front of the castle. I like how the TARDIS is placed on top of the castle too.

Looks like Capaldi's taken a liking to his Brouge shoes. Must be quite comfy to wear them outside of his costume. Jenna's got a lovely dress, too- really liking the enchanted princess look. But if the photos with the TARDIS on the castle terrace are legitimate, some crew had to go to all the trouble of lugging that thing there just for those snapshots, even if it was piece by piece.

Jenna looks royal in that dress. And the pics with the castle in the background are so nice. We've seen so many TARDISes  digitally added in picures of famous places on Earth and now it's actually happening!

God, these pictures are so awesome I'm at a loss for words... They are amazing.And Doctor Who is amazing. 

And I must say, I was expecting the worls tour to be big and amazing but this is beyond anything I've ever imagined.

And that's a lot of "amazing" for one comment.

I'm almost certain that they've definitely gotten rid of the Paradigm Daleks. I mean, if they weren't here, I doubt they'll turn up again any time soon.

Oooh, I see Clara is wearing red ... again!  Just seen a few clips on the BBC 6 o'clock news, and if they are anything to go by, the new series is looking good :) Can't wait till the 23rd.

Looking at these pictures and thinking of yesterday's Capaldi's quote about not being a heartthrob...

Capaldi looks younger here than in the promo pictures. Did they suit him up to look older?

Hello from Cardiff! A brilliant day and a cracking episode.

Speaking of style, Peter is really rocking that coat like the former punk-rocker he is.

At least time is passing faster for me in this month, compared to the evil month of July.

It looks like it was brilliant, and these pictures are great. Makes me wish I could've gone! Still, only 16 days to go. CAN'T WAIT! XD

@Pockydon I saw you guys! I would have said hello... but your dad was intimidating :|

Same! I was just to the right on the Thumbnail!

I was there in the crowd but didn't go in St. David's Hall to watch the episode. Did you see Louise Jameson? She walked right behind me and I didn't even notice! I was talking to a guy in the crowd who is friends with one of Capaldi's bodyguards and also has a friend that works at St. David's Hall, so he got in free!

Which Castle is it? If it's Caerphilly, I was there on Wednesday!

On the 'autograph' walk up to St. David's Hall, they passed a Dr. Marten's shop and Capaldi did a kind of salute.

@Awqwapwnics It either went up in pieces and was reassembled u[ there, or it is a lightweight mock-up used for publicity photos.

@Awqwapwnics Lugging? The Doctor landed the TARDIS there, the perfect place to park it! 

Looking at my photos of the castle, yes it must have been quite tricky, a behind the scenes video of the TARDIS being carried up there would be quite interesting

He was laughing at something at one point, and all the heavy security thought he'd been poisoned!

Seriously? That's awesome, you should have said hi, I'm sure he wouldn't have minded! Unfortunately I'm not in Cardiff today, I stuck around for about an hour after the screening then went home. But the fact that you were actually there is pretty darn awesome!

@Whovian1500 It's the Keep in the middle of Cardiff Castle. It's about 5 minutes walk from wher ethe premier was held.

Ha XD I had to laugh when Zeb shouted "Lizo!" when he walked past and you all waved XD I was next to these really awesome cosplayers dressed as Eleven (Purple tweed) and Seven at the very front opposite you, you might've seen me anyway XD Did you get much look with autographs/photos? I got Capaldi and Moffats autograph :-D

Pockydon
Pockydon

Wait, you saw that!? That made my day, the fact that he acknowledged us was seriously awesome. And I remember the cosplayers! I must have seen you at some point, but I obviously didn't know it was you. And I managed to get Jenna Coleman's autograph, but Peter Capaldi just stayed on your side and Moffat moved over to you literally just as I was about to get his, so that was annoying, XD.

The Count

@Pockydon I was wearing a green jacket, dark blue shirt, black jeans, maroon converse and a quiff, if that helps XD The cosplayers got so much press attention, I was worried I was going to end up next to them in all the videos and pictures XD And yeah, Jenna came back down from the  top and stopped RIGHT next to me, signed about 2 of the people next to me, and then said to us "sorry, I think I have to go back to the start" and moved back :( Still, I cant complain XD Did you see a Cyberman go to a kid next to the cosplayers and point his gun at him? I was right next to the kid, it was so funny XD
