On the same day it airs on TV...
Superhero Hype reports that the BBC has announced that season eight of Doctor Who, called "Deep Breath", will debut in theaters on the same day as its TV premiere on August 23.
The episode was directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List) from a script by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat. It will be the first episode with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Jenna Coleman will be back as his companion Clara Oswald, as will Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) and Strax (Dan Starkey).
Moffat said: "Last November the Doctor didn't just conquer the world on television, he did it in the cinemas too. And like the show-off he is, he can't resist another go – one taste of the silver screen is never enough. On August 23rd the new Doctor will begin his new adventures on BBC One and in cinemas all over the world. Movie-land beware – Capaldi is coming to get you!"
