BBC Sets ‘Doctor Who’ Premiere, Releases New Teaser
The Doctor will land this August, according to the BBC.
In the new video below, the network teases (and I mean tease, since it’s only 16 seconds long) not only the shortest of shadowy glimpses of Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor, but also reveals that ‘Doctor Who’ will return this August.
Capaldi made his debut in “The Day of The Doctor” before taking on the role full-time following Matt Smith’s exit as The Eleventh Doctor, whose final appearance was in the 2013 Christmas special. As for Jenna Coleman, she will return as The Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald.
Other faces we can expect this season include Ben Miller as a “storming villain,” Samuel Anderson as Danny Pink (a teacher with Clara), Keeley Hawes as a villain named Ms. Delphox, and Tom Riley, who will appear in co-showrunner Mark Gatiss’ episode.
Now, start preparing for Season 8 of ‘Doctor Who,’ and don’t forget to check out the teaser below.
