A special Doctor Who screening event was held in New York, USA to celebrate the revival of the critically-acclaimed franchise from BBC Wales

The event, hosted in partnership with BAFTA New York, Cardiff Business Council and BBC America, offered 220 industry guests a big-screen showing of the episode Listen, starring Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor. The screening was followed by a Q&A with show runner and writer Steven Moffat.

Cardiff’s Initiative 

Cardiff Council and Cardiff Business Council is committed to raising the international profile to instigate investment to the Welsh Capital.  The city has an excellent track record in attracting creative industries to Cardiff, with the success of the Doctor Who Experience, Sherlock, Torchwood and Casualty, as well as the Pinewood setting up in Cardiff.

The creative industry is the fastest growing sector in Wales. Around a third of all Welsh creative industry jobs are based in Cardiff, with over 6,000 jobs in the capital. We will continue to embrace every opportunity to show what Cardiff has to offer, further establishing the fastest growing European Capital City on the world stage.
