New trailer teases what’s inside Doctor Who’s newest Time Lord

Someone can see inside the new Doctor’s soul — and it’s not all fish fingers and custard.

The voice is obviously a Dalek of some kind — I’ve seen a lot of speculation that it’s Davros, the creator of the Time Lord’s oldest foe, but it just doesn’t sound very Davros-y. It’s more of an Emperor or Supreme Dalek, I think.

Speaking of old Who villains, I’d be remiss if I didn’t note the other news from the past week that the Cybermen are returning in Series 8.

This is believed to be from the season finale, with guest star Michelle Gomez pictured as someone called the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere. (Via Doctor Who News)

Peter Capaldi’s first season as the Doctor begins Aug. 23 on BBC America with the feature-length premiere episode, “Deep Breath.”
