We haven’t had a new Doctor Who episode since the Christmas Special, which saw the exit of Matt Smith’s Doctor and the entrance of Peter Capaldi in the role. And it was such a memorable entrance – unless you’re someone who is upset that the Doctor isn’t a young man anymore. Then again, it’s still memorable to you.
Where was I?
Doctor Who was busy filming these past months and BBC wants to remind us that the Doctor is coming back – with a teaser that they released online and on television.
A lot have said before that Capaldi in the role might mean a more menacing Doctor; the teaser feels like just that. A more dangerous Doctor could be fun. We wouldn’t have to worry about dark and gritty – when did Doctor Who ever ignore the whimsical humor?
I’m excited. I can’t wait.
Doctor Who returns this August.
