It’s always a bit of an event when a season of Doctor Who ends, and the BBC have teamed up with CinemaLive to bring the last two episodes of Ncuti Gatwa’s first season to the cinema, making this a proper night out.

The two-part finale screening will start at 11 pm (UK time) on June 21st , with the penultimate episode, The Legend of Ruby Sunday (which will have already aired the previous week), followed by the final episode, Empire of Death, will play on the big screen. 

Showrunner Russell T Davies said: “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!”

This is not the first time Doctor Who has been on at the cinema. Back in the 1960s, two feature films, Dr Who and the Daleks and Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 AD, wowed cinema-going audiences. More recently, a 75-minute episode called Day of The Doctor was shown as part of the Doctor Who 50th celebrations. That showing also had a short message from The Doctor.
