BBC recently released a teaser trailer for the eighth season of the long-running British series Doctor Who.

The trailer, only sixteen seconds in length, keeps the Doctor in the dark – literally. The trailer depicts the Doctor silhouetted in his famous TARDIS, with some kind of explosion going on in the background.

The series, which celebrated its fiftieth anniversary on November 23, 2013, is set to return in August, although there is currently no official date. The series will see a newly regenerated twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, and his companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), along with a new human companion named Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson).
