Doctor Who series 8 to land in August

Peter Capaldi is glimpsed in the Tardis console room in the first teaser trailer for his debut series


Time is relative. Fifteen seconds isn’t long but when it crams in confirmation of a summer debut for 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi and features a first sight of him in the Tardis, it feels like a very big 15 seconds.


The new first trailer for Doctor Who series eight reveals that Capaldi and the Tardis will land in August, rather than the autumn timing we had been expecting, while the silhouetted glimpse of the Doctor at the top of the Tardis console room steps may last only a fraction of a second but it’s atmospheric, tantalising and incredibly exciting.
