Doctor Who Season 8 DVD

BBC Worldwide has 70 pairs of tickets to give away for the event, which will be held in central London on Monday 17 November, hosted by Frank Skinner.

Skinner, who recently appeared in ‘Mummy on the Orient Express’, commented: “When they asked me to host this event I was over the moon. Luckily the space-dragon incubation period is such that I was in no real danger. I have so many questions I want to ask and, when we’re all talked out, I’m planning to finish off by crowd-surfing for 10 to 15 minutes, dressed as Chief Engineer Perkins.”

Fans will be treated to a special screening followed by a Q&A with members of the cast.

For a chance to win a pair of tickets, fans just need to visit doctorwho.tv and correctly answer the multiple choice question, when they will subsequently be entered into a prize draw.

The competition opens today and will close at 23.59 on Wednesday 29 October. Winners will be selected at random and will be notified within seven days of the closing date. Unsuccessful applicants will not be contacted. Fans should only enter if they can travel to London for the afternoon of Monday 17 November. The event venue will be disclosed to winners on their invitation closer to the time.
