Hold onto your seats, fellow Whovians, we’re only 10 days away from Peter Capaldi’s debut (post-regeneration) as the 12th (or is it 13th?) Doctor.
SERIES 8 OF DOCTOR WHO
That’s right, the Paternoster Gang – Madame Vastra, Jenny and Strax (I love them!) – are back, along with dinosaurs (Doctor Who loves dinosaurs going back to the 70’s with Jon Pertwee’s 3rd Doctor) to join the 12th Doctor and Clara (Jenna Coleman) in the series opener Deep Breath!
Capaldi, Coleman and producer Steven Moffat, have been on a world tour promoting Series 8, kicking off in Cardiff, and hitting major cities around the world.
Tomorrow, Thursday, August 14th, they’ll be here in New York City, for a fan screening at the Ziegfeld Theater from 7:30pm to 10pm.
TAKING IN DEEP BREATH
Though I have some insights into the episode Deep Breath, I won’t say what I know at this point, after all, I don’t do spoilers, sweeties. I will say that it offers a marked departure from the Doctor we’ve seen in recent years, and yet brings something familiar to the landscape as well. And with 50+ years of history and 11 actors in the title role before him, Capaldi is certainly skilled enough to fill those awesomely big shoes.
Here’s the official trailer for Deep Breath, airing at 7:50pm on Saturday, August 23rd on BBC One (UK) and at 8 pm (US Eastern Time) on BBC America. Deep Breath will also be screened in select theaters.
