Take a “Deep Breath” everyone. Yes, that WAS a pun on the title for the first episode of the upcoming series. Peter Capaldi’s role in the next season has been kept under wraps pretty well, with only a few teasers hinting at the newest incarnation of The Doctor’s personality. With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner and NO Doctor Who panel this year, my Time-Lord hearts anxiously await for August 23rd to get here. Entertainment Weekly provided us with the first Official image from actual footage for the newest series of Doctor Who.
The Doctor will travel back to Victorian England along with the Paternoster Gang (named after Paternoster Row, the streets in which their office was located), which consists of our favorite Silurian, Madame Vastra (Neve Mcintosh), her lovely wife Jenny(Catrin Stewart), and potato looking butler, Commander Strax.
As usual executive producer Steven Moffat spoke in hist best cryptic demeanor by saying, “There’s no point pretending that it’s not the most interesting, dynamic thing that you’ve got to sell in that first episode. It’s going to be about ‘What’s he like? How’s he different?’ I suppose it feels a bit like a character piece, but there’s plenty of action and nonsense and jeopardy, as there ever is in Doctor Who.”
“This man is a total adrenaline junkie.” – Jenna Coleman, co-star and companion
I would love to see a Doctor that acts like he’s hyped up on Jelly Babies and energy drinks, fast paced speeches and rants, but still fierce and angry in contrast to Matt Smith’s child-like incarnation!
What do you think Capaldi is going to be like!? Let us know in the comments down below or shoot us a tweet over @NerdworkTweets!
