On Wednesday, March 13th, Doctor Who fans across the U.S. will have the chance to see Tom Baker‘s final episode, “Logopolis,” on the big screen. As previously reported, Fathom Events has teamed up with BBC Studio for a special, one-night event that will see the Fourth Doctor’s final adventure screened in select theaters.
The Doctor Who episode features the first appearance of Companion Tegan (Janet Fielding), Anthony Ainley in the role of The Master, and the regeneration of the Fourth Doctor, with Peter Davison taking over the role as the Fifth Doctor. The episode sees the Doctor form a tentative truce with the Master to stop the unravelling of the universe before it’s too late.
The event will not only include the 100-minute adventure, but will also feature exclusive bonus content, including a brand new interview with Tom Baker himself, as well as Companion actresses Fielding (Tegan) and Sarah Sutton (Nyssa).
Den of Geek has an exclusive sneak peek at the interview. In the clip, Fielding and Sutton talk about the life-changing nature of starring on Doctor Who, and how the legacy has endured over the years. Check it out…
The event is anticipation of the upcoming release of Tom Baker’s final season as the Doctor on Blu-ray. The collection will hit shelves on March 19th. Baker is arguably the most iconic of the Classic Doctors, and is the most familiar to American audiences especially, many of whom first encountered Baker-era Who on public television.
Tickets for “Doctor Who: Logopolis,” which will screen at 7 p.m. local time, are now available to purchase via Fathom Events or at participating theater box offices. You can also pre-order Tom Baker’s final season on Blu-ray now.
