The series finale of Ncuti Gatwa’s debut series of Doctor Who will be shown in cinemas around the UK, here are the details.

Doctor Who being streamed to cinemas is a relatively recent phenomenon, discounting Dr Who And The Daleks and Daleks: 2150 AD, the Peter Cushing films made for cinema release in 1965 and 1966. 50th anniversary special Day Of The Doctor was beamed to cinemas in 2013, as was Peter Capaldi’s debut episode Deep Breath in 2014. Now? There’s more!

The BBC has announced that Empire Of Light, the finale of this year’s series of Doctor Who, will be streamed to cinemas, along with preceding episode The Legend Of Ruby Sunday, courtesy of CinemaLive.

Showrunner Russell T Davies previously teased the finale of season one by saying “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!”

Dominic Walker, Global Business Director, BBC Studios, said “we’re delighted to be working with CinemaLive at such an exciting time for Doctor Who to bring the finale of Ncuti Gatwa’s first season as the Doctor to the big screen across the UK. Whovians are such a big part of Doctor Who so it was important for us to celebrate the end of the series with an event for fans to come together and celebrate all things Whoniverse. We can’t wait for fans to see what is in store to conclude the Fifteenth Doctor’s first season.”

Doctor Who continues with Russell T Davies’ 73 Yards, which will be available from midnight on the 25th May before being broadcast on BBC One at 18:50 the same day.

Tickets go on sale at 9am today and you can find a list of participating cinemas here.

We’ll leave you with the trailer…
