Watch new Doctor Who Peter Capaldi’s opening appearance in a brand new trailer for the eighth series of the show.
Capaldi, whose mother hails from Co. Cavan, is to be the twelfth person playing the famous time lord.
The minute-long promo was shown during the half time of the World Cup final on BBC One and sent die-hard fans into a frenzy on social media sites.
Capaldi was born in Glasgow to Irish-Italian ice-cream sellers and is shown in the fast-paced clip with several new monsters, with dinosaurs and robots featuring alongside the famous Daleks.
Doctor Who returns to our screens on Sunday, August 23 on BBC One.
