It’s been a little while since we’ve heard about Doctor Who season 8. Luckily, the BBC has dropped some casting additions and a new teaser to let you know that the Doctor is about to make a house visit!

First up, Michelle Gomez will be joining the cast as the satanic Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere. Judging from the picture below, she will not want to be trifled with. As you can see by the tweet below, she’s got a few Cybernetic friends coming with her as well.

Finally, we have a bit more footage from the upcoming season. It’s just a teaser, but it’s also our first ‘kinda’ look at Peter Capaldi in the TARDIS. Hopefully we get a new trailer with actual footage soon!

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman star in the new series, which starts on BBC One on Saturday 23rd August. Guests include: Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.
