Trailer for DOCTOR WHO Premiere Ep “Deep Breath”

Trailer for DOCTOR WHO Premiere Ep “Deep Breath”

We’re now less than two weeks away from the premiere of Doctor Who‘s eighth series and the first adventure for the fourth different Doctor since the show came back in 2005 (fifth if we’re counting the War Doctor). The excitement here at Nerdist HQ (and in my own heart and soul) is palpable (and pulpable, weirdly), and would be even if we didn’t have a new teaser trailer to share. But a new one we have and share it we will. Below is the BBC One teaser for “Deep Breath.”

Ahhhh! I have no idea what’s happening but I’m jittery with the prospect of seeing Peter Capaldi take on dinosaurs and steampunk robo-men in Victorian London and teaming up again with a samurai Silurian detective and her human warrior woman wife. And all the while, Clara is there because the newly-regenerated Doctor Whose Number Is Officially Twelfth needs her more than anyone. We even get a smirk from Twelve at the end, which is about as much of a smile as we’ve ever seen from him. It looks, like all the best series premieres written by Steven Moffat, bonkers. Bonkers T. Bobcat, even.

As a reminder, Doctor Who Series 8 premieres on Saturday, August 23rd, at 8/7c ET/PT with the feature-length first episode on BBC America. It will also be shown in cinemas in select cities at midnight that night as well as in many more cities on Monday, August 25th.

    I’ve never liked any Doctor when he first started (started with 3/Jo) but they have all grown on me :-).  I’m sure Peter Capaldi will as well :-) Matt Smith even replaced Tom Baker as my favorite.

  2. I don’t like the looks of the new dr..hes going to have to win me over..I loved davad tenant he will always be my favorite.  I didnt like matt but he won me over. We shall see if this dr can do the same

    This is going to be soo epic!!!!!!!

  4. [M-A] says:

    Love the now classic “I don’t like it” line.

  5. Matt says:

    ‘The question is have there been any similar murders’

  6. Sean Turner says:

    I like the “You’ve redecorated I don’t like it” line which they have used about 3 times before in doctor who

  7. Sean Turner says:

    EPIC TRAILER.I think Capaldi is gonna be a great doctor

    I can reassure everyone that the episode is brilliant. Funny, creepy, tense and just a little sad. Capaldi is exactly right and Jenna seems to work better with him than Matt.

    I just didn’t think the “I don’t like it” line was well done. It just felt forced. Instead of the joke being something that people happen to say, it felt more winky-winky… As if to break the 4th wall and say, “see what I just did there?” But context might help? Anyway, I was really excited for Capaldi because I know he’s a massive Whovian… but I’m not sure about the scripts… I’ve heard some people say it wasn’t very good. Also, I’m not a fan of the Paternoster gang. I’m trying to be hopeful. But the last two episodes, despite some nostalgia and the massive hype, were somewhat disappointing from a continuity/characterization/plot hole/lightswitching standpoint. Not trying to be negative. I want Doctor Who to be good. I want Capaldi to be FANTASTIC… I’m just not sure if it’s going to be as good as it used to be.

  10. Doctor says:

    Wow Clara stole David’s line

  11. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH! It’s killing me that some lucky people have seen it already. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!

  12. You had me at ‘Dinosaurs.’

  13. looks like Jenny changed her hairstyle wearing it lose now

  14. Oh, you’ve redecorated. I don’t like it.
