    The TARDIS crash lands on London’s iconic Parliament Square

    In an explosive return to the UK from the world tour, the Doctor - Peter Capaldi - and his companion Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman, made a surprise appearance this morning at the site of a specially constructed crash-landed TARDIS on London’s Parliament Square.

    Ahead of the eighth series returning to BBC One this weekend, the theme of the crashed time machine was in keeping with the feature-length opening episode, entitled Deep Breath, which sees the Doctor arrive in Victorian London to find a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions.

    In front of the TARDIS and through the debris of dinosaur bones, the show’s transmission date can be seen emblazoned in the grass – Saturday 23rd August. Deep Breath airs at 7.50 PM.
