Lots of New Photos Show Us the Doctor Who Series 8 Premiere

The eighth series of BBC's Doctor Who may not premiere until Saturday, but we have new promotional photos to tide Whovians over. BBC has released nine images from the premiere episode, entitled "Deep Breath," which will introduce the sinister, misanthropic new Doctor.

 

Here's showrunner Steven Moffat's official synopsis of the episode: "'Who frowned me this face?' In London of the late 1890's, swashbuckling detectives Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax are summoned from Paternoster Row to the banks of the Thames, for a big surprise, and then an even bigger one. A new Doctor is in town, with mayhem in his wake. As Clara struggles to recognize the man she thought she knew so well, killers are stalking the capitol. A slaughterhouse restaurant and a buried space ship, lead the Doctor into a confrontation with a long forgotten foe … but how far is this new man ready to go to protect his friends?"

 

 

The new photos are primarily of Peter Capaldi as the twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman as his trusted assistant, Clara, who may be departing the show at the end of the year
