BBC Studios and CinemaLive have joined forces to bring the Doctor Who finale to cinema screens across the UK on 21st June 2024.

Doctor Who made a return to screens this month as Ncuti Gatwa’s first full season as the Doctor began. Now fans are being offered the chance to see the series finale on the big screen at cinemas across the UK. 

This two-part epic finale screening will commence at 11pm on 21st June with the penultimate episode, The Legend of Ruby Sunday, (which airs on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 15th June), and as the clock strikes midnight, 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!

 Dominic Walker, Global Business Director, BBC Studios, said:

We’re delighted to be working with CinemaLive at such an exciting time for Doctor Who to bring the finale of Ncuti Gatwa’s first season as the Doctor to the big screen across the UK. Whovians are such a big part of Doctor Who so it was important for us to celebrate the end of the series with an event for fans to come together and celebrate all things Whoniverse. We can’t wait for fans to see what is in store to conclude the Fifteenth Doctor’s first season.

John Travers, Head of Acquisitions and Distribution for Cinema Live said

We're thrilled to be working in partnership with BBC Studios to offer fans of Doctor Who this unique opportunity to come together and share the incredible experience of watching the epic season finale on the big screen.
