"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Peter Capaldi is looking to blaze his own trail as the new star of Doctor Who. As you can see in the first trailer for the BBC series’ eighth season, the recently regenerated Time Lord is looking to right some of the wrongs he’s committed in past incarnations.
Steven Moffat penned the season opener as well as three others, including the two-part finale. Speaking of the finale, it’s directed by Rachel Talalay who helmed Tank Girl and The Borrowers. Sherlock‘s Mark Gatiss also wrote an episode.
The new season premieres Aug. 23.
