Posted Filed under

BBC Studios and CinemaLive have joined forces to bring the two-part Doctor Who 2024 series finale to cinema screens across the UK on 21 June 2024.

The screening will start at 11pm BST on with the penultimate episode, The Legend of Ruby Sunday, (which airs on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 15 June), and as the clock strikes midnight, the final episode Empire of Death, will play on the big screen.

The Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) land at UNIT, Unified Intelligence Taskforce, Tower to seek their help. Ten floors below, a long-buried secret has been waiting since the 1970s. An old VHS tape may hold the key to Ruby’s most precious secret. It’s not just personal to Ruby. The whole of existence is in grave danger. This episode sees the return of companion Mel Bush (Bonnie Langford), last seen in the 60th anniversary special, The Giggle.

Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies previously teased the finale of season.

“This is a great big rip-roaring finale with the Doctor, Ruby and friends old and new fighting the greatest enemy of their lives. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
