Though there won’t be a Doctor Who panel at the San Diego Comic Con, fans won’t have to wait until 2015 to see Peter Capaldi step out of the TARDIS and into our hearts, and the premiere date for the eighth season is closer than you think.

As you saw from the teaser video, we’ll get to see all of the action on Saturday, August 23, at 8:00 PM.

Capaldi was introduced as the new Doctor last November, and we got a very small glimpse of him during the Christmas Special.

As mentioned on this week’s Finally Friday live stream, the BBC has opted not to do a San Diego Comic Con appearance this year, so that it can include more fans in the the Doctor Who experience, and appropriately, the Doctor Who World Tour will kick of in Wales this summer, with Mr. Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara Oswald, appearing in New York on August 14, 2014.
