Update: Sydney Livestream Cancelled plus Video - Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman talk about their Korean fans


BBC Worldwide have announced that the planned livestream of the Sydney Q&A has been cancelled:
We will no longer be live streaming the fan Q&A event from the Doctor Who World Tour in Sydney. We’ve listened to your feedback and agree that it’s much more exciting for fans (both at the events and online) if the Q&A session takes place AFTER screenings of Deep Breath. That way, the panel will be able to chat about the Twelfth Doctor and the episode in much more detail. The World Tour is the first time that a current Doctor and companion have officially visited Australia, so we want to make sure that we make the most out of their time with fans. 
We will still publish a (spoiler-free) highlights video from event within 24 hours of it happening, and a longer version will then be made available after Deep Breath has started to air around the world on 23 August. 
We appreciate that this may be disappointing news to some of our loyal fans who are not able to attend event in person or were looking forward to the live stream, but we’re confident that this now means you’ll be getting much better, more exciting video content to enjoy.    
It does make much more sense for fans to be able to watch the episode first THEN have the Q&A - as per the Cardiff event.  There has, as yet, been no announcement regarding the remaining events.

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman have been talking about Korea - and the Korean fans have been talking about "Doctor Who" in a new video from the BBC:
