Heads up, Whovians! The Beeb has unleashed a teaser trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who. It’s all frustratingly brief and tantalising, and meant to whet our appetites for the eventual return of Doctor Who in August.
It’s basically a (shadowy and brief) glimpse at Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor. I’m not quite sure what’s going on here, but it all looks very science-y and explode-y.
Capaldi was officially unveiled as the 12th Doctor last August, and has since featured briefly in Day of the Doctor. In January, the look of the new Doctor was also unveiled – a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt and black Dr. Martens shoes.
But it’s been four months, and the Internets grows impatient. So as brief and shadowy as this teaser is, you can be pretty damn sure Whovians will jump on every single nuance and detail. Writer and showrunner Mark Gatiss recently said of Capaldi:
“He’s a wonderful man and one of our best character actors. I knew immediately – from watching other things – there was going to be a certain level of twinkly Scottish intensity to him. “There’s madness in his eyes! He’s just an amazing dramatic actor and a very funny actor – which is exactly what you want for the Doctor.”
In the meantime, you should know that Series 8 will include 13 episodes and is slated to be broadcast without any breaks once it starts. And you should also check out this highly impressive fan made trailer, with a very surprising ending:
