Doctor Who: Deep Breath UK Schedule Confirmed & Trailer

Time to put it in your diaries, Doctor Who fans! Series 8 will commence with Deep Breath on Saturday August 23rd at 7.50pm on BBC One, as reported by the Radio Times today. If that doesn’t satiate your time travel needs, the trailer above should.

The synopsis on the listings guide website reads:

When the Doctor arrives in Victorian London, he finds a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions.

Who is the new Doctor and will Clara’s friendship survive as they embark on a terrifying mission into the heart of an alien conspiracy? The Doctor has changed. It’s time you knew him.

So, it’s going to be a late episode, running to 70 minutes and ending at 9.10pm. Meanwhile overseas, we have:

  • BBC America: 8pm
  • Space: 9pm
  • BBC Latin America: 10pm
  • Fox: 9pm (Germany)

Friends, we are now fully set for the big event – the return of Doctor Who to TV with an actor whose back catalogue of work and recent press reviews promises so much! Here at Kasterborous Towers, we’ll be watching in HD with surround sound and lashings of ginger beer and popcorn – but what about you?

    It surpasses trailers of past episodes. There seems to be an urgency and a (dare I say it?), and authenticity to the drama.
    I’m expecting such a marked shift that it may as well be a reboot.

      I know what you mean about authentic drama, it’s partly the quality if actors and production but I think the period setting cements it. It looks epic, like they’ve taken the cinematic values of Matts last run and pushed even further.

    I think “Squeal” about covers it.

    Fab. Can’t wait. Btw, is Neve saying, ‘Free the Cabbage?’ I’m actually a bit deaf so I don’t know! Does this mean the Talking Cabbage of Tom Baker’s dreams is finally hitting our screens?
