Here’s our first full-length look at season/series 8 (depending on which side of the pond you’re on) of Doctor Who, starring new Doctor Peter Capaldi alongside current companion Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman.
After weeks of brief video teases, we finally get a glimpse at the new Doctor in action with an ominous warning of where (and when) he’ll be traveling next. “Into Darkness”. Odds are good that he won’t be crossing paths with Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan, but who am I say what the Doctor is capable of? They’ve crossed over in the comics, so who knows? Of course, it would be quite silly on television, not to mention a legal nightmare to bring the two together, so let’s not discuss it a moment further. I think we’d have a much better chance of him running into Sherlock.
Of course, what we can rely on is a number of new foes for the Doctor to face, both old and new. You can’t have a season without the Daleks showing up. And you can bet they’ll spend a little time in Victorian England. And what’s this? A t-rex on the streets of London? Why not?
The Doctor returns August 23rd in the UK on BBC One and in the US on BBC America.
