New Series 8 Doctor Who Trailers

A little behind I know on the Doctor Who news! Sorry!

The BBC has released two new trailers for the next series, starting on 23rd August 2014 (UK).

The first a 15 second trail that has the Doctor, sitting on top of the TARDIS, telling us to Listen. You can view that one here:

The second one however is 35 seconds long and reveals some of the monsters that he and Clara will be encountering in the next series. The Doctor is again wondering if he is a good man and says he has made many mistakes and needs to do something about it. Clara then asks where they are going and the Doctor tells her “Into Darkness”. Take a look at the trailer:

Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman have also done an interview with Empire magazine. Moffat and Capaldi both say the next series is going to be darker than the earlier series, which probably explains the “into darkness” line in the trailer and tallies with what Capaldi revealed to Empire about his Doctor.

He said, “He’s more alien than he’s been for a while. He doesn’t quite understand human beings or really care very much about their approval.” Jenna Coleman has said that in comparison to Matt’s Doctor, Clara doesn’t feel quite as safe. “With Matt’s Doctor [Clara] felt quite safe, really. She knew she’d be caught if she was in danger, but this guy is a lot less human-friendly and a lot less patient. He’s more removed and inaccessible. You can’t quite access him in the same way.”

(The article can be read by heading to the Empire Magazine website).

This probably means that the next series will be closer in line with the Classic Who episodes and children will be hiding behind the sofa or a cushion much more so since the reboot began in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Doctor.

What do you guys think? Do you want a return in some ways to the feel of the older episodes or would you rather they stuck to what has worked since it’s return to our screens in 2005? What do you think the trailers say will happen in the next series of Doctor Who? Don’t be afraid to comment below!
