WATCH: Doctor Who Series 8 gets its first trailer PLUS Air date confirmed

May 23rd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Every Whovian across the globe has been awaiting an official look at Peter Capaldi as the 12th incarnation of the time lord… and it looks like they will still be waiting as this 15 second TV trailer fails to show us… anything.  

Ok, well it does show us something.  For a few brief seconds we get a backlit image of Capaldi leaning over the rails of the Tardis.  Why is he backlit?  Because apparently his iconic time-ship is throwing another major hissy fit – cue sparks and flames as the console explodes for the billionth time in the shows history.

Still it does its job of managing to drum up excitement – I did get a small thrill from it as it also gives us an air date – roughly.  Yes the adventures of the 12th Doctor kick off this August in the UK, with the US catching it on BBC America around the same time, no doubt.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
