Series eight of Doctor Who - starring 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi - hits our screens on 23 August.

Fans were treated to a thrilling trailer shown in the break for half-time at the World Cup final - if you missed it, have a watch above.

There were explosions, daleks and a Tyrannosaurus rex rampaging around the Houses of Parliament!

And the new Doctor talks of a journey... "into darkness!"
