First Look At Doctor Who Series 8: Deep Breath

Exciting times for Doctor Who. The new series, and the landing of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, are mere weeks away, especially for the lucky few attending the early première in Cardiff.

The new Doctor appears to be in the midst of his post-regeneration state, with a nervous, troubled expression and ragged clothes. Indeed it looks as though the long prevailing rumour of a Victorian Period setting for the opening episode was right on the money. How and why remains to be seen, but the specific return for Clara to this era could prove significant with the events that unfolded in the Christmas special The Snowmen.
