Peter Capaldi is the Darkest Doctor Yet

Doctor Who Series 8 is mere days away – are YOU ready?! Nerdist News is here to get you prepped!

On today’s show, Jessica Chobot‘s getting pumped about the announcement of the Doctor Who Extra behind-the-scenes companion series, dissecting what Series 8 is all about with Stephen Moffat’s episode guide, and breaking down the meaning behind what our sources are calling the prickliest, darkest iteration of everyone’s favorite Time Lord yet. Plus, Dan Casey is here with some Doctor Who theories and of course, this week’s Pull List. Don’t blink – cause this episode is wibblier and wobblier than time itself!

Let us know in the comments below if you’re worried about Twelve’s prickly demeanor, make sure you swing by The Dan Cave for more Who predictions, and we’ll see you tomorrow for another fresh episode of Nerdist News!

    I’ve seen MOST of Classic Who, so I am not in anyway worried about a darker Doctor.

  3. Araknar Lord of the Spider People says:

    Hello my baby, hello my HONEY, hello my ragtime gal. You’re close Jessica, but to quote Weird Al, are we playing horseshoes honey, no I don’t think we are.

      Can’t argue you with you there, I have a hard time watching her. I can’t pin point what it is I hate about her but she just rubs me wrong way & I want to smack her with a brick!

        As somebody who’s actually appeared on camera before hosting a weekly segment on at news station for over 50 weeks straight, I can say that Jessica is doing an exceptional job. If you don’t like her as a host then don’t watch. It’s as simple as that. Keep the negative BS elsewhere. It’s not welcome here.

      Jess Chobot is funny as sh*t, and has long standing cred in the nerd community.  She’s a hardcore gamer, spent time at G4, and has been around the scene forever.  Fluid, fast, funny, and f*cking fantastic.
