Doctor Who Teaser Clip: A Longer Look and Return Date Announced!

at . Comments

Saturday, August 23 at 8:00 p.m. EST marks the return of Doctor Who to BBC America and the formal introduction of the 12th Doctor, portrayed by Peter Capaldi.

It's not the first time we've seen Capaldi as the Doctor. He appeared briefly in both the November 50th Anniversary Special and the Christmas Episode as he emerged in the final moments as Matt Smith's version was sloughed away.

Leading up to the premiere, Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, who plays the Doctor's companion, Clara, will kick off the first ever Doctor Who World Tour spanning seven cities with one U.S. stop in New York on August 14.

Joining Capaldi and Coleman for the new season is Samuel Anderson as Danny Pink, a fellow teacher at the Coal HIll School where Clara works, as well as a number of high profile guest stars.

In the teaser, the Doctor asks Clara to be a pal and tell him if he's a good man. His voice has a menacing tone after which we hear Clara questions if she still knows the Doctor. It sure seems like Capaldi's take is going to be a bit darker and slightly sinister with a toying edge, don't you think?

Take a peek and be here on August 23 for a full review of the premiere!

Doctor Who Quotes

Once, long ago, a fisherman caught a magic haddock. The haddock offered him three wishes in return for its life. The fisherman said, “I’d like for my son to come home from the war. And a hundred pieces of gold.” The problem is, the magic haddock, like robots, don’t think like people. The fisherman’s son came home from the war, in a coffin. And the king sent a hundred gold pieces in recognition of his heroic death. The fisherman had one wish left. What do you think he wished for? Some people say he should have wished for an infinite series of wishes, but if your city proves anything, it is that granting all your wishes is not a good idea. [...] In fact, the fisherman wished he hadn’t wished the first two wishes.

Hunger looks very much like evil from the other end of the cutlery. Do you think your bacon sandwich loves you back?
