Doctor Who will be returning this August, along with the new Doctor Peter Capaldi who has just shown up in his first full TV trailer.
The trailer features the new Doctor dramatically stating his intention to go back and start correcting his mistakes, along with his companion Clara, while the TARDIS control room is shown wracked by explosions and fire, which could mean a new TARDIS design is on the way too.
The trailer gives the impression that this is a darker series, with a more serious Doctor, aiming to bring more drama than the antics of the previous iteration and is that a T-Rex in London?
OK, I take that all back, this is going to be fun!
We also see the return of some familiar faces, such as Madame Vastra and even a roboticised Walter Simeon, a.k.a the Great Intelligence.
I cannot tell you how excited I am for this new series. I am relatively new to Doctor Who, but am now an avid Whovian. Peter Capaldi marks one of the few times a Doctor has been replaced by an older actor, and I am curious to see how he will portray the iconic character.
What are you expecting from this new series? Has the trailer made you excited for what is to come?
