Doctor Who - Series 8: First Trailer

And here I thought we'd have to wait a little longer for some kind of trailer but it seems that last night, the BBC were feeling generous and gave us a tiny teaser for Series 8 of Doctor Who.

The 16 second trailer showed a glimpse of the Twelfth Doctor as played by Peter Capaldi inside a fiery TARDIS and the slogan ... the new Doctor lands this August. Which means that we have a little over three months left to witness Peter Capaldi in action but while we're waiting some filming pictures of the latest block have emerged ...

The show might have been filming in Lanzarote last week but Jamie Mathieson's upcoming episode also had some filming in Wales too with Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Ellis George and Hermione Norris seen filming in spacesuits during the week. There's been some rumours that George's character, Courtney might be another companion but it's also a possibility that she's just helping the Doctor and Clara out in this one episode (a similar deal with Angie and Artie in Nightmare In Silver) but so far no signs of Samuel Anderson as Coal Hill teacher Danny Pink though. While Paul Wilmshurst is currently directing this block of episodes, the next block will be taken on by American director, Rachel Talalay.
