The doctor lands...
Only a few months shy of a year from when he regenerated, the doctor is set to return in August with Peter Capaldi taking over for Matt Smith. BBC has released a small teaser clip which you can see below. The eighth (34th total) season follows Capaldi appearing in The Day of the Doctor 50th anniversary special and the Christmas special The Time of the Doctor, when Smith officially regenerated. His costume was revealed in a photo this past January.
The new episodes will also feature Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. Steven Moffat, the lead writer and executive producer of the series, wrote the first episode and Phil Ford wrote the second. Ben Wheatley will direct both. The series is executive produced by Moffat and Brian Minchin, and produced by Nikki Wilson and Peter Bennett. It is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One.
