BBC America will debut the eighth season of Doctor Who — ahem, the first season featuring new Doctor Peter Capaldi — at 8PM ET on August 23. The season will blast off with a feature-length episode entitled “Deep Breath” in which Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor makes his first full-episode appearance. Jenna Coleman returns as companion Clara Oswald and Samuel Anderson joins the cast as Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School, where Clara also works. Ben Miller (Primeval, Death In Paradise), Keeley Hawes (Line Of Duty, Upstairs, Downstairs), and Tom Riley (Da Vinci’s Demons) guest star. Check out the freshly unveiled Season 8 teaser (readers outside the U.S. can view the BBC version below it):
