The New “Doctor Who” Hits In August

The first, and extremely brief, teaser trailer has arrived for the upcoming eighth season of the BBC’s “Doctor Who”. The new season marks the first spearheaded by Peter Capaldi’s 12th incarnation.

Shown only in silhouette, and with the TARDIS console seemingly exploding behind him, the trailer finally does confirm a long standing rumor – that the new season is scheduled to start in August.

The first six of twelve episodes are in the can, with filming on the seventh spotted in recent weeks. Check out various set photos below of Capaldi and co-star Jenna Louise-Coleman during the filming done so far, there’s even a glimpse of “Da Vinci’s Demons” star Tom Riley decked out very differently as Robin Hood (the episode’s title indicates he’s possibly a robot).
