BBC Worldwide has announced that several of the fan events taking place around the globe as part of the Doctor Who World Tour will be streamed live on the official Youtube channel, so fans from all over the world can participate and get involved.

Q&A sessions will be held in various cities across the globe ahead of special screenings of the highly anticipated series 8 opening episode, Deep Breath. Stars of the show Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will be in attendance to answer questions from the fans, along with Lead Writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat (depending on schedule).

The following events are to be streamed in local time:

Brazilian live stream details will be announced in due course, and the New York City fan event will not be live-streamed, though a highlights package will be available on YouTube at a later date.

Fans who are not able to watch the streams live will be able to access the full stream On Demand after the events. The BBC Worldwide team will additionally be delivering content from the tour on Twitter feeds and through the @DWWorldTour account, Tumblr, the official Facebook page as well as additional content on YouTube. Fans are also encouraged to connect using the #DWWorldTour hashtag.

Amanda Hill, Chief Brands Officer for BBC Worldwide says:
"This Doctor Who global tour isn’t just about the lucky few that manage to get tickets for the events, it’s about connecting with fans all over the world, wherever they are. Live-streaming our fan Q&As as well as offering content on all our social platforms will allow everyone to join in the experience and hear from the stars of the show."
