After eight months of wishing we had our own TARDIS so we could skip all the waiting between Matt Smith's exit and Peter Capaldi's entrance, the highly anticipated eighth season of Doctor Who FINALLY premieres this Saturday, August 23 on BBC America. To celebrate the occasion, BBC America has released a handful of new photos from the feature-length Season 8 premiere, titled "Deep Breath."
In case you've missed the trailers, "Deep Breath" finds the Doctor in Victorian London, where there's a dinosaur (yes, a dinosaur) running rampant in the Thames (hey, at least it's not a spaceship again). And as if that's not enough to worry about, the Doctor must also figure out what's causing the deadly spontaneous combustions occurring throughout the city while also adjusting to a new body yet again. Joining the Doctor and Clara for the ride are Strax, Madame Vastra, and Jenny—as you'll see in the photo gallery below. So grab your nearest Whovian pal, check out the new episode stills, and get excited for a darker, older, but probably-not-any-wiser Doctor!
Doctor Who Season 8 premieres Saturday, August 23 at 8pm on BBC America.
