That’s Peter Capaldi’s Doctor in the full trailer for Season 8 of Doctor Who, which is broadcast in the UK on Saturday 23rd August.
The video gives us our first proper look at Capaldi’s incarnation of the Time Lord, who promises to be darker, more serious and – it seems – more morally conflicted than before. Indeed, with him proving the major focus of the trailer, it looks like the overarching narrative of the new season will involve some serious soul searching for the Doctor, not to mention Clara, who is faced with a stranger in the blue box.
Familiar faces – and voices – abound, with a Dalek voiceover making it clear that we haven’t seen the last of the pepper pots yet. Nor, judging by one glimpse of a (slightly dodgy) CGI T-Rex stomping past the Houses of Parliament, the last of silly, family-friendly episodes. Into darkness? Great. But don’t worry kids, the BBC seems to be saying, they’ll be dinos in the dark too.
The most exciting part of the trailer, though, is undoubtedly the closer look we get at the Doctor’s new clothes. Three words? Peter Capaldi’s cardigan. Or, in a word: Capaldigan.
