Deep Breath Screening
As part of BBC Worldwide’s global event celebrations to mark Peter Capaldi’s debut series of Doctor Who, UK fans had the opportunity to see the first episode of series 8 in cinemas in the UK and Ireland, as well as on BBC One, on 23 August 2014.
The screenings followed the huge success of the global cinema screenings for the show’s record-breaking 50th anniversary episode – The Day of the Doctor – in November 2013. In addition to the episode being simulcast on TV in 98 territories, fans were also able to enjoy the episode on the big screen in over 1500 cinemas around the world.
We supplied a full size 1963 style Dalek to the screening taking place in Cambridge at the VUE Cinema in the Grafton Centre. The Dalek ventured around the shopping, visiting businesses and shops to promote the screening taking place that evening. After this, it sat lying in wait outside the Cinema Screen to surprise viewers as they went in.
The Dalek was built over the space of 10 months in 2013 by James Sutton and Terry Poole, it has since appeared at several public events.
