Initially, we were told “later this year,” and then we narrowed it down to August, but now, without any equivocation, a brand-new teaser pinpoints the airdate and time for Peter Capaldi‘s first full episode as the Doctor. Clear your calendars, folks: Doctor Who Season 8 is set to launch Saturday, August 23 at 8/7c. The premiere episode is titled “Deep Breath.”
And we’ve also received the striking above image of Capaldi, flashing the red lining of his Pertwee-esque coat, and Jenna Coleman‘s Clara.
Check out the teaser. It’s an apparent continuation to the previous video featuring the Twelfth Doctor in a burning TARDIS, but in this one, you can hear bits of dialogue featuring the Doctor and Clara. The last line gave us the shivers.
