The first full trailer for Doctor Who series 8 has been released online!

After weeks of teasers, promotional stills, and hype-increasing hyperbole, the BBC have finally released the first full trailer for Doctor Who‘s eighth series – which will star new Doctor Peter Capaldi alongside returning companion Jenna-Louise Coleman and newcomer Samuel Anderson.

Check out the trailer below, courtesy of the Doctor Who YouTube page.

The trailer debuted on BBC One in the UK earlier this evening, during the broadcaster’s coverage of the World Cup final.

Doctor Who fans have a nervous wait until the series premiere after the first five scripts of the series were accidentally leaked on line by a BBC Worldwide office, closely followed by a rough cut of first two episodes. The leaks prompted the show’s fans and creative team to launch a no spoiler campaign, using the hashtag #keepmespoilerfree.

Doctor Who returns to the world’s screens on Saturday, August 23. The opening episode, entitled “Deep Breath” was written by show runner Steven Moffat and directed by Sightseer and The Kill List‘s Ben Wheately (his first time behind the camera for the show). Series 8 will then continue for an uninterrupted run of 12 episodes – the first time this has happened since 2010′s series 5.

Future guest stars include comedians Frank Skinner and Ben Miller, as well as Ashes to Ashes star Keeley Hawes, Game of Thrones‘s Roger Ashton-Griffiths, and singer Foxes. Writers for the new series include Sherlock‘s Mark Gatiss and Steve Thompson, Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel scribe Jamie Mathieson and children’s author Frank Cottrell Boyce.

What do you think of the trailer?

    While the trailer had me gasping for air, I’m not so psyched about him having Matt’s screwdriver, especially since it was made to match 11′s first TARDIS.

    • Gavin Walsh

      he probably only has it for the first episode or so :)

      • TheFirst

        I believe Capaldi was seen using Smith’s sonic screwdriver during the filming of the finale. So he’s just using the old one this series, I guess.

        It’s not so bad though, it kinda matches the coulor scheme of Capaldi’s redecorated TARDIS.

        • Gavin Walsh

          true that i’ve no problem with it :)

      • Gene

        I agree, Gavin.

      • Juan Pedia

        From pictures of filming, it looks like he’s actually got it for the whole season.

    • http://harrymyland.com/ Harry Myland

      I’d say I’d want him to have that futuristic River one, but that whole scenario already played out, sadly (another conversation entirely). A Kingston and Capaldi run as husband and wife would have been legendary…

      But despite this, enh, it doesn’t bother me. He’s the Doctor.

      • Winkyxx

        But… I thought River was back?

        • Juan Pedia

          She could come back, but there’s no evidence that it’s happening soon.

          • James Grayh

            OHHH please please please please please, Moff!

          • Juan Pedia

            Right there with you. I really think there’s potential. I know Moffat’s said the interesting age difference is gone now, but now it looks like we could have an interesting mix between a flirtatious River and a please-don’t-hug-me Doctor.

          • James Grayh

            Exactly! :) I hope he doesn’t feel all nostalgic about Matt Smith and just think River only belongs on screen with him, it’d be brilliant to see her paired with Capaldi, featuring in stories like she did in Series 5 – really aiding the story, but as a companion, not the central plot (as she was in Series 6).

            I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

    • James Grayh

      I agree, I would even have been happy if they just changed the colour of bits to suit the Twelfth Doctor more – like changing the brass effect to silver for example.

  • Winkyxx

    REXY!! Here boy!
    Only joking, I’m excited!! The tardis is now orangeish on the inside!

    • TheFirst

      Maybe it’s a she? ;)

      I love the TARDIS’s new colour scheme. It’s a lot warmer. I also love the bookshelfs!

      • Winkyxx

        Yes, I do like the new colors too!
        The last color scheme was too dark and blue, but I guess it represents 11th’s sadness after the Ponds.
        “Oh you redecorated? I don’t like it.”

  • Gavin Walsh

    Loved it

    T-Rex, new aliens, Madame Vastra! YES!

    DYING!!!!! Can’t believe this was out for two hours before I knew! Gaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!

  • Juan Pedia

    Hate to be that guy, but
    0:22 is an unfinished shot from “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” (used in the 2012 trailer)
    0:47 is from “The Doctor’s Wife”
    I guess it’s still too early for finished effects shots from later Series 8 episodes. I wonder if this was put together to thank fans for keeping spoilers quiet.

    • James Grayh

      Generic shots of the TARDIS flying. Not sure those shot are what anyone’s looking at when there are a whole bunch of new shots for us to gawp at

      • Juan Pedia

        Yeah, I figure they’re short on finished effects shots at the moment, so I’m fine with it.

    will there be a Who Hype soon?

  • Holly1

    fiery TARDIS! torch hand! dinosaur! metal-guy! Just my first impressions. I love how much better the special effects have gotten since 2005. can’t wait *SQUEE*

  • Sara

    You can tell I’m still not coping very well when any flash of red hair (0:44) makes me go, “POND!”

  • James Grayh

    LOVE the new TARDIS colour scheme and REAALLY LIKE the fact that Twelve has bookshelves for reading and blackboards for writing, it really shows what kind of direction this Doctor might be going in. Mad Man In A Box becomes the Mad Scientist In A Box?
