Ever since that heart-wrenching regeneration last Christmas, we’ve been waiting patiently for a tease at the new season of Doctor Who, the first starring Peter Capaldi as the Time Lord. While we’ve learned a lot about Season 8’s cast and crew, it’s what we’ve not seen that’s kept our curiosity high.
