‘Doctor Who’ Season 8 Premiere Date Announced; New Teaser Unveiled

The TARDIS will crash land on BBC America for season eight on Saturday, August 23rd at 8PM ET/PT with new Doctor Peter Capaldi at the wheel. The long-awaited announcement also came with a brand new teaser featuring the 12th Doctor asking his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman), “Be a pal, Clara, am I a nice man?” Well, we know he is the kind of man who calls people “pal” at least.

Additionally, the title of the feature length premiere episode was revealed to be “Deep Breath.” Joining the cast to ride along with Clara and The Doctor this season is Samuel Anderson (History Boys, Gavin & Stacey) who joins as Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School where Clara also works. Previously announced guest stars include Ben Miller (Primeval), Keeley Hawes (Line of Duty, Upstairs, Downstairs), and Tom Riley (Da Vinci’s Demons).
