DOCTOR WHO (BBC America)
The Doctor is an alien Time Lord who travels through time and space in his TARDIS. His current travel companion is Clara Oswald, though he has a long list of friends and companions who have shared journeys with him. Instead of dying, the Doctor is able to “regenerate” into a new body, taking on a new personality with each regeneration.
Calling all Whovians! Get excited for the 12th Doctor’s first official flight in the TARDIS. We’ll see Peter Capaldi as The Doctor with his current companion Clara, as well as a newcomer, Samuel Anderson who will play Danny Pink, a teacher at Clara’s school. It’s looking like this season will be a little darker than the previous few have been, with the 12th Doctor a bit more serious and, maybe, a bit more sinister as well. We don’t get too many clues from the teaser trailer, but when it comes to Doctor Who – we’ll take what we can get.
“Doctor Who” season 8 premieres August 23 on BBC America.
