Doctor Who on Tour

Fron The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, and his Companion, Karen Gillan are to visit five regional locations across Britain. The tour will enable the pair to introduce themselves to fans ahead of the new series' Easter launch. A specially themed Doctor Who bus -- featuring the new TARDIS logo -- will transport them.

Kicking off on March 29 in Belfast, they will then travel to Karen Gillan's hometown, Inverness for a screening on March 30. The bus will move on to Sunderland that afternoon and arrive in Salford on March 31. The last pit stop is later that day in Northampton -- Matt Smith's hometown. Each location will also host a regional premiere of episode one, The Eleventh Hour, for local children.

Following the tour, from April 1 to April 3, events featuring BBC Big Screens will enable fans in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Plymouth and Swansea to experience a taste of Who hysteria. Visitors will be able to meet some of the monsters that the Doctor has battled over the years, see the new trailer in 3D and have their photo taken tumbling through the giant vortex.
