Doctor Who Series 8

BBC America

We knew Doctor Who Series 8 was fast approaching, but until now we hadn’t been officially briefed on just when it would land. Was it intentional for BBC to hold that confirmation until we were an appropriate number of weeks away? It seems too perfect. According to a new teaser via BBC America, the show will premiere with the first full episode to star Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor on August 23rd at 8pm ET.

Titled “Deep Breath,” the episode will be written by Steven Moffat and directed by Ben Wheatley, best known for the films Kill List and Sightseers. The only other things we know are Jenna Coleman is back as companion Clara Oswald and Samuel Anderson is joining the show as another teacher at the school where she works. You won’t even get that much from the 15-second teaser, though. Have a watch after the jump.

I’m a little worried by the fact that I couldn’t totally comprehend what Capaldi is saying in the video and only got it all when I saw it quoted online. The actor’s accent is thick, so we may be in for a bit of work while watching the new series. In case you couldn’t understand either, he asks, “Clara, be my pal, tell me, am I a good man?” After that, Clara more clearly states, “I don’t think I know who the Doctor is anymore.”

Join me in eight weeks and I’ll help with anything else you need when I begin reviewing the show weekly.
