The BBC has unveiled the first Doctor Who series 8 trailer for the upcoming season, featuring actor Peter Capaldi (In the Loop) as the newly regenerated Doctor. I’ve never seen an episode of the show in my life, but the fans seem to be quite passionate and no doubt this full-length trailer for the rebooted season will be rather exciting. We get a tease of Capaldi’s iteration of the lead character, as well as flashes of some of the sci-fi creatures and situations that the Time Lord and his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) will face—including dinosaurs! The first two episodes of this new season were directed by Kill List and Sightseers helmer Ben Wheatley. Capaldi, of course, takes over the role from actor Matt Smith, while Steven Moffat continues to exude his superhuman abilities as the showrunner of both Doctor Who and Sherlock.
Hit the jump to watch the new Doctor Who trailer. Series eight premieres on August 23rd in the UK and the US on BBC.
