Doctor Who is due to return on August 23rd, so I guess I better get ready to hear about how crazy I am for not watching the show all over again. BBC dropped that first full-length series 8 trailer just about a month ago, but with the premiere date fast approaching, they just threw in another 30-second spot for the first episode, “Deep Breath,” as well.
Minus the fact that Peter Capaldi (In the Loop) is our new Doctor, I’ve got just about no clue what’s going on in this teaser, so I won’t dare try to describe it, but it’s got a dinosaur, a guy who’s missing about a quarter of his face and shots of the Tardis – I know the Tardis! Hit the jump to check out the new Doctor Who series 8 trailer for yourself. The show returns in the UK and the US on Saturday, August 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for the first episode of series 8:
“When the Doctor arrives in Victorian London he finds a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions. Who is the new Doctor and will Clara’s friendship survive as they embark on a terrifying mission into the heart of an alien conspiracy? The Doctor has changed. It’s time you knew him.”
