Doctor Who 2024 series premieres in London

Posted Filed under

Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson were the headliners at a spectacular Doctor Who 2024 series premiere at the Regent Street Cinema in London on 25 May 2024.

The day started with a special Doctor Who-emblazoned London Double-Decker bus which took some lucky premiere ticket contest winners on a tour of London, starting with Royal Albert Hall and visiting Big Ben at the houses of Parliament, the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, and Abbey Road, where they appear to have picked up two passengers.

After a wardrobe change for Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson, the bus made its way to the BBC Television Centre with Doctor Who Showrunner Russell T Davies onboard for a special photo shoot.

Joining Millie Gibson and Ncuti Gatwa at the screening at the Regent Street Cinema were Bonnie Langford, Jemma Redgrave, Anita Dobson with her husband Sir Brian May, Michelle Greenidge, Callie Cooke, Nicholas Briggs, Steffan Powell, Russell T Davies and Steven Moffatt.
