WATCH: The ‘Two Hearts’ Teaser for ‘Doctor Who’ is Most Startling One Yet
Is Saturday, August 23 here yet?
We’ve seen two teasers in the lead-up to Doctor Who‘s eighth modern-era season, the first with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. But this clip, released today (July 4), is the most unsettling one yet. And we mean that in the best of the ways: here, we’re still following the motif of the previous teasers with the Doctor in a burning TARDIS. But other dangers lurk within that blue box, and the clip is narrated by a familiar—and deeply disturbing—voice.
The “Two Hearts” title is, of course, an allusion to the Doctor’s biology, displayed in this clip in one arresting image.
Just watch—and sleep for the next few weeks with the covers over your head:
