The time is almost upon us, that magical time when Doctor Who returns to the airwaves. The date set is August 23rd and this will be the first time we get to see Peter Capaldi really strut his stuff and let us know what to expect from season 8. Now, we’ve been given a chance to look at a little of the show via the new teaser trailer. Scroll on to witness the Doctor in all his 16 seconds of glory.
Well, it seems like they’re trying to build up the mystery a bit this season, particularly where it comes to what this incarnation of the Doctor is going to be like. Clara’s reaction says it all – will we know who the Doctor is this season? Or has Steven Moffat decided to take the show in a completely unique direction?
One’s things for certain – Capaldi is going to bring us something amazing. And if you’ve any doubt still left in you, remember these words:
“Times change and so must I. We all change when you think about it. We’re all different people all through our lives. And that’s ok, that’s good, as long as you keep moving, as long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this, not one day, I swear. I will always remember when The Doctor was me.”
Those words signified the Eleventh Doctor’s (played by the absolutely brilliant Matt Smith) heart-breaking farewell… And brought the arrival of Peter Capaldi, the 12th incarnation of The Doctor.
Where there might have been an inkling of worry, Peter Capaldi came onto the scene and won fans over in a blink. What an actor! This man can do more with his eye alone in a few seconds that most could manage with a thirty minute monologue.
What say thee, Nerd Readers? Eager to see Capaldi start on his tenure as the world’s most famous time traveler? Or are you still mourning the loss of Matt Smith?
