The Doctor Who World Tour has reached North America, with stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, alongside lead writer Steven Moffat, meeting fans and attending a Question and Answer session at the Ziegfeld Theatre in Manhattan.

Fans camped out for up to 10 hours to see the stars emerge from a New York taxi as they attended the special screening of this year's season opener Deep Breath.

Peter Caplidi told the crowd he had been watching Doctor Who since he was five.
Actors who played Doctor Who – Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker – those were the people I was watching. More than Laurence Olivier. I turned up on set and saw the Tardis. I remember touching it … the police box … and I got a little bit teary. I was just so thrilled to be there,
The tour now moves into its final few days with events in Mexico City on Sunday and Rio de Janeiro on Monday. The team then return to the UK in time for a special event at the Odeon Leicester Square on Saturday to launch the series around the world.
