It isn’t much, but us “Doctor Who” fans will take anything we can get.

BBC America released a teaser for the upcoming eighth season featuring Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor. A flickering 15 seconds later we learn that the series will return in August.

Season 8, of course, marks the official era of Capaldi as the Time Lord who can regenerate himself into a new figure after death.

Capaldi was chosen to replace Matt Smith, who announced he was exiting the series last June. He has since made a couple appearances on the series: during a montage of all the Doctors in November’s 50th anniversary special, and then during the annual Christmas special last December when Smith’s 11th Doctor regenerated into Capaldi’s 12th.
