Gone are the days of the man who regrets and the man who forgets. This is a new man-a man who has lived over 12 lives and 2,000 years, only to be reborn in a new life cycle, literally giving him a second chance on life.
The BBC has just released the full trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who, giving Peter Capaldi full reign as the iconic role of the time lord, and the description above conveys the exact mood of what we are to see, as the Doctor realizes that he has made some poor choices in his life, and now that he has a second chance to do it all from scratch, he is going to do something about it. Whether or not something will actually come of it is to be seen.
Check out the amazing trailer below.
Daleks, cyborgs, dinosaurs, aliens, oh and did we mention dinosaurs?
With the return of all these things, along with the return of Madam Vastra and the rest of her motley crew, we can expect great things to come from this upcoming season. Capaldi's initial casting announcement was met with the fandom split 50/50, but now that people have had a chance to let it sink in and see him in action, the 'whovian fandom' seems to have welcomed Capaldi into the role, and eagerly await his take on the 2,000 year old time lord.
There have also been reports that several scripts for the upcoming season, as well as at least one unfinished episode, have been leaked to the internet. The season premieres in just over a month, so if you haven't already gone scouring the internet for these, do yourself a favor and just hold out for a few more weeks, but beware, in the words of River Song, "Spoilers...."
Doctor Who Season 8 premieres on BBC and BBC America on August 23rd, 2014.
