I didn't get tickets- everyone who did got told yesterday. And worst of all, it was so successful, there will be no tickets being sold on 28th July! :(

I don't know how we will remain spoiler free after all these screenings. It's already hard enough.

Hope that this is when they will announce weather there will be a new title sequence.

Applied - wishing hard. I'll be going on my own, as I work just down the road - but it's 200 miles from home. But I doubt I'll feel alone with the Whovian Army!

Hmm, so the chance of avoiding spoilers is getting worse and worse! I'm gonna have to keep off the internet, not look at any newspapers or watch any television for over two weeks if I am to remain spoiler free.

What a ridiculous decision these early screenings are, I might as well seek out the leaked episodes - at least I'll be able to watch those spoiler free.

Oh the irony!

Good luck to those who manage to get tickets, but please don't spoil anything for the rest of us.

Well, I've applied. Hoping for better luck than we had for the Cardiff screening! I've crossed everything, arms, legs, toes, eyes, even parts of my body that I didn't know could be crossed.

Seeing as people can only apply for two tickets, there should be less selling them on for frankly ridiculous prices on t'internet. That's the most annoying thing; not that we didn't get Cardiff tickets but that people who did sold them on. Grrrr...

It seems like they are taking their time to announce all of the details because people will only know if they are going two weeks ahead of time so if anyone has to make travel plans it will be very last minute. Hopefully the tickets for the New York part of the tour are closer to this price than the Sydney event (which is approximately $100).

Good luck to all of you who live in the UK!

I am in no way, shape, or form, wishing you ill out of sheer burning jealousy. 

Not even slightly. 

Nope.

a ballot is probably a better way of distributing tickets, rather than crashing the box office computer...

Ah, this is, arghhhhhh! I'm going to London the following week, damn it. I'm wondering if it's worth just applying anyway and seeing what happens. Have always wanted to attend one of these screenings...

@NumberNine I think we should be fine, the established commenters at DWTV are generally too mature to post anything that would spoil it all for everyone else, and I'm pretty sure the ever efficient and scrutinising moderators will continue to protect us from anyone new attempting to do the same.

@The Finn As the largest auditorium only holds 450 people, and BFI members will have first digs on the tickets, the vast majority of us Brits will be disappointed as well!

@YaelMoise Many of us who live in the UK will just as easily be able to get to London on a random day than Americans to New York and Australians to Sydney. Alas, our small size does not seem to given us the best transport infrastructure (My 60 miles distance takes 90 minutes by train - quicker than most of the world's population, but hardly efficient and means it would have to take up a whole day I just don't have free - and I won't even touch on getting into central London by road...). 

So don't worry, a lot of us will be burning with jealousy too! ;)

London is a 6.30, 15 minutes for have everyone sat and placed, if they pass the episode first, it would finish around 7.30, s, they should leave Cardiff around 5.00, two hours to London and half hour for refresh themselves.

I agree that the vast majority of Doctor Who dedicated websites will be responsible and do their best to keep spoilers off their pages. However the early screenings will increase the possibility of spoilers appearing on websites where you wouldn't be expecting them. A photograph here, a casual comment there, and suddenly even the most dedicated spoilerphobe could have the episode ruined for them.

Tell me about it... Do not go on what culture! Almost every article they have to write something about the upcoming plot lines of series 8!

@Liana21 OOh yeah, if we both get tickets, I'll have to come and say Hello :).

@Liana21 As it's a 75/80 minutes episode, it won't finish until 8 which should give them time to get to London, though there's always the risk of traffic or problems on the trains!

@Planet of the Deaf @Liana21 Traffic and rail disruption getting into London? Surely not! That hardly ever happens for more than two, several hour long periods a day!

Seriously though, they're cutting it a bit fine, but I would imagine (and hope) they've planned it pretty carefully. Maybe there'll be a bit of fiddling with dimensions to get there quicker. Does anyone know if the TARDIS has to pay for the congestion charge?

@Planet of the Deaf @MrRazza, the Newly Qualified Omega Identifier @Liana21 Perhaps it will be a theme for Series 8.


Clara: "Where are we going?"

Doctor: "Into Darkness... The Blackwall tunnel is murder at this time of day and we're likely to be in it for ages, and I can't afford to avoid it and not pay the congestion charge again. Then we'll get the A2 to the M25. It means a lot of traffic though, I'm not sure it's right to subject you to all that Clara... Tell me, am I a good man ... with directions?" 

Clara: "I don't know ... what the M25 is like south of the Dartford Crossing. Have you done it before?"

Doctor: "I've made many mistakes, and it's time I did something about that... I'm going to buy an A to Z."
