First Official Trailer for Doctor Who Series 8!
"I don't think I know who the Doctor is anymore."
So says loyal companion Clara Oswald in the first full trailer for the upcoming series of Doctor Who, which aired during the World Cup final yesterday.
The twelfth incarnation of the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, may be the most sinister yet, as he ominously tells us that he has "made many mistakes," and will spend this season trying to rectify them. He even rivals the Daleks, who creepily tell us that "life returns" and "life prevails." The trailer also promises robots, various types of aliens, the beloved TARDIS of course, and best of all, dinosaurs.
The Doctor, who is a humanoid alien called a Time Lord, undergoes a process called regeneration whenever he suffers an injury that would be fatal to a mere mortal. After the regeneration, his body is completely different and his personality changes to some extent as well, and that pesky personality change seems to be more pronounced than ever in Capaldi's iteration.
Follow the new Doctor "into darkness" on August 23.
