The Full-Length Doctor Who Series 8 Trailer Has Landed!

Dalek voice: “Life returns. Life prevails.”

“I’m the Doctor. I’ve lived for over 2,000 years. I’ve made many mistakes. It’s about time that I did something about that.”

“Where are we going?”

“Into darkness.”

I am really, really looking forward to watching Peter Capaldi bringing this Twelfth Doctor to life.

What else can we gather from this official trailer: the Daleks are back, the Paternoster Gang is back, the Doctor will gallop through some streets on horseback in a nightie, someone that looks very similar to the Gunslinger from a town called Mercy, spooky knights, and another exploding TARDIS.

I’m sure you’ve heard that BBC Worldwide in Miami seems to have a serious security problem: footage of the first Series 8 episode, Deep Breath, as leaked — and not just bits, no, the entire rough cut, albeit with stand-in credit titles and missing the FX shots. Still, it’s out there, it’s online, it’s a rough cut practically ready for broadcast, and it sucks. So, anyone, please, anyone who’s got their hands on it, don’t post spoilers, don’t start rumours, don’t ruin it for anybody. Be kind and generous. And whoever is leaking this stuff, whoever is letting these things get out: please get sacked sometime soon. Alternatively — if this is hackers doing this: stop it, you ungrateful nitwits, why would you even do that. Just to upset some nerds? Get a life.

It’s not the first time this has happened. Rose leaked 20 days before the revival started — which is probably why people were so bloody well surprised that, in Series 7A, the huge secret of Clara’s involvement in Asylum of the Daleks could be kept under wraps.
