Plus, the Daleks are back!
A month before the start of the eighth season and after several teasers were released, BBC One has finally unveiled a first trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who.
This new season will be anything but a rest for the Doctor if this minute-long trailer is to be believed. In addition to new monsters such as dinosaurs and robots, the Daleks, well-known by series fans, are making a comeback.
The trailer also reveals a darker side to the Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, who is about to travel “into darkness” with Clara (Jenna Coleman) and who wonders if he really is a good man.
The Scottish actor, famous for his role as Malcolm Tucker in BBC’s The Thick Of It, takes over from Matt Smith and is expected to play a less likable Doctor. Capaldi, who starred in The Day Of The Doctor and The Time Of The Doctor, is the 12th actor since the creation of the series in 1963 to slip in the shoes of the 900-year-old alien who cruises from planet to planet onboard a ship in the shape of a British police box.
Samuel Anderson, who will play Danny Pink, a professor working at Coal Hill School, will also make his debut in the first episode, called Deep Breath, which will be broadcast on Aug 23 on BBC One in Britain. — AFP Relaxnews
