Doctor Who

BBC America

The Doctor is almost in! BBC released the first of what we assume can only be many Doctor Who teasers for the upcoming season eight of the sci-fi hit.

The trailer below features the quickest of looks at Peter Capaldi in action as The Doctor in what looks to be the TARDIS and teases the new premiere month: August.

Capaldi made his Doctor Who debut in "The Day of The Doctor" before taking on the role full-time following Matt Smith's final Doctor Who appearance in the 2013 Christmas special "The Time of The Doctor." Jenna Coleman will return as The Doctor's companion Clara Oswald.

Capaldi was announced as the new star of Doctor Who in August 2013.

"Being asked to play The Doctor is an amazing privilege," Capaldi said at the time. "Like The Doctor himself, I find myself in a state of utter terror and delight. It's so wonderful not to keep this secret any longer, but it's been so fantastic."

Who's ready for August?
