Doctor Who Season 8 Air Date and Teaser Trailer Revealed!


Exciting news, Whovians! The first teaser for Doctor Who season 8 has landed, and it’s brought a release date with it. The sci-fi powerhouse will be returning to our screens on August 23rd, which is less than two months away!

Although the trailer itself doesn’t reveal much, it does involve  the new Doctor (Peter Capaldi) asking quite an ominous question – “Am I a good man?” A worried looking Clara (Jenna Coleman) subsequently gives him an answer that isn’t particularly helpful, “I don’t know who The Doctor is anymore.”

These few seconds alone have me concerned that despite the incidents that occurred in the 50th anniversary episode (and no I don’t mean Crazy Tom Baker), our beloved Doctor hasn’t shaken off the eternal genocide-induced depression that we’ve seen over the last few years. Can’t he just be happy for a few episodes!? I guess we’ll just have to wait until August to find out.

Doctor Who will air in Australia on ABC1 and on iView.
