Doctor Who Series 8 Deep Breath Synopsis

The BBC has finally released details of Deep Breath, sharing a synopsis of Doctor Who Series 8′s premier as the show begins its world tour before its August 23rd TV broadcast.

Following yesterday’s Cardiff and London launch, it makes sense for some official details to come along…

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.

That should keep us going for a few days! Note that as yet the BBC is not revealing the broadcast time, but as Deep Breath is 75 minutes long, expect to be parked on the sofa for a while (if you’re not behind it).

We are 15 days from the TV premier of Deep Breath,  when Peter Capaldi’s Doctor will finally be thrust into the homes of millions across the country.

I don’t know about you, but I am seriously excited.
