Earlier today, the official twitter account for “Doctor Who” (@bbcdoctorwho) announced that the science fiction drama will return this August!

Series eight of “Doctor Who” will feature the newest incarnation of The Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. Matt Smith, who made his first appearance as The Doctor in 2010, made his last regular appearance on the show in December of 2013. The beloved actor has, however, recently stated that he would love to come back soon for a special installment of the series. He stated this: “I’m just waiting for the next anniversary. I spoke to Steven [Moffat] the other day and said ‘what’s the quickest one we can do?’”

Regarding Capaldi, fans are eager to see his Doctor in action. Luckily, the aforementioned announcement also included a teaser trailer for series 8 that, while very brief, does include a silhouetted shot of the character! Watch it here.
