First full Doctor Who series 8 trailer released

By
A new Doctor Who trailer has been released.

The minute-long promo was shown during the half time of the World Cup final on BBC One.


The quick-paced trailer shows Clara adjusting to life with Peter Capaldi's Doctor, before he sends them travelling "into darkness".

New monsters are also revealed in the clip through glimpses of dinosaurs and robots, while old enemies such as the Daleks also make an appearance.

Steven Moffat has promised a "big introduction" for Peter Capaldi in the feature-length Doctor Who premiere.

He said: "It's a big introduction - he's the new Doctor. There's no point pretending that it's not the most interesting, dynamic thing that you've got to sell in that first episode."

Doctor Who returns Saturday, August 23 on BBC One in the UK and BBC America in the US.
