The new 15-second teaser for season 8 features a brief silhouetted look at Who newcomer Peter Capaldi inside the TARDIS with the tagline “The new doctor lands this August.” Watch the short teaser below:

Capaldi takes over the coveted role as the sonic screwdriver-wielding Time Lord from Matt Smith, who portrayed the 11th incarnation of the Doctor for three seasons.
