BBC America just announced that the new stars of Doctor Who, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, along with showrunner Steven Moffat, will appear in New York City to promote the new series with press interviews and a series of events. The launch kicks off on April 12, with a Paley Center for Media and BAFTA East Coast member screening and discussion moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s senior writer Clark Collis. On April 14, fans can join Matt, Karen and Steven at the Village East Cinema for the official premiere screening followed immediately by a Q&A moderated by USA Today’s pop culture columnist Whitney Matheson, author of the Pop Candy blog. The Village East screening will take place at 7pm, and is open to the public and seating is on a first-come, first served basis on the day of the event.
