DOCTOR WHO Series 8 Teaser Trailer Announces The Doctor’s Return This August

Other than the news a few months ago that Capaldi would be traveling with some new companions in addition to Clara (Jenna Coleman) and some set pictures popping up from time to time, we don’t know much about Capaldi‘s debut. Well now our first solid news about the series 8 premiere date has hit thanks to a very teaser-y teaser trailer released by the BBC.

A 15-second teaser and image (which you can see below) were released by the Beeb today to let us know that The Doctor will be returning a little earlier than we expected. Capaldi will make his debut this August and not the late fall/winter premiere we’ve come to expect. While the teaser doesn’t show much more than the TARDIS going a little haywire (hopefully not exploding or coming under attack again), it does do enough to whet the appetite. What do you think about the teaser? Are you ready to see Capaldi in action?
