Doctor Who fans should head over to Fathom Events this week, the company will partnering with local cinemas to premiere the new “Doctor Who” season. The theatrical debut will open shortly after the television premiere, so you can still have your Who-viewing party with friends, then celebrate with fans at your local cineplex. You also don’t have to worry about anyone spoiling it, or talking through it.
Presented by Fathom Events, The Doctor will hit the big screen thanks to BBC America’s “Doctor Who: Season 10 Premiere,” starring Peter Capaldi, who will be joined by new companion Pearl Mackie (Bill) and returning alien companion Matt Lucas (Nardole). Sadly, this will be the final season with Peter Capaldi, so set your next-Doctor pools and start making your guesses on who will play the Time Lord next season.
