We’ve seen a shot or two of Peter Capaldi in costume as the new regeneration of Doctor Who, but we have yet to see any real footage of the new Doctor in action. Now there is a Doctor Who season 8 teaser trailer, if a very brief one. “Tease” is the name of the game here, as this footage only gives a silhouetted look at Capaldi’s new Doctor. But it’s enough to get our attention, especially since the first couple episodes of the new season were directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, A Field in England, High Rise).
Check out the teaser below.
The new season of Doctor Who will air beginning this August. Teaser via the BBC.
A brand-new era of Doctor Who begins as the Time Lord dons a new look. Each incarnation of the Doctor has his own original style, and BBC AMERICA has just released the first photo of the Twelfth Doctor’s costume. Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Doc Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden. Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: “He’s woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.” While lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat added: “New Doctor, new era, and of course new clothes. Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over – Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you!” This new look will be featured in the series when Doctor Who returns to BBC AMERICA later this year. Filming on the upcoming season, which also stars Jenna Coleman (Death Comes to Pemberley) as companion Clara, is currently underway in Cardiff.
