Doctor Who Series 8 air date and new teaser trailer: ‘Am I a good man?’

Doctor Who - Season 8 Teaser

The BBC has confirmed at last that The Doctor will return to our screens on 23 August 2014 (24 August in Australia) with a feature length Doctor Who episode called ‘Deep Breath’!

Starring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman as his companion, Clara, the Beeb has also released a first image and teaser trailer in which The Doctor asks “Am I a good man?” It’s an indication of the potentially darker nature of the new incarnation of the Time Lord in Series 8, as Capaldi makes his first full appearance in the long-running series.

Capaldi was last seen in the 2013 Christmas Special The Time of the Doctor, shortly after the other Time Lords had granted The Doctor a whole new set of regenerations.
