New Doctor Who trailer: series 9 premieres this September

Doctor Who fans finally have a premiere date for the return of the Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor. During today's Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Whovians were treated to a new trailer for the next season, which will debut on September 19th. All the core players are returning, including Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and Missy (Michelle Gomez). We're looking forward to it.

Last season saw the "birth" of the Twelfth Doctor, a new take on the character who was morally ambivalent and self-conscious of his decisions. As a consequence, the action took a somewhat darker turn, and also allowed Clara to step out of her companion role and become something closer to an equal to the Last of the Time Lords. After all of that action, series 9 promises to show a more sure-footed Doctor, one who's better equipped to contend with the machinations of Missy. And then there's Maisie Williams' mysterious role. Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey surprises are surely on the way.

Update: Now with more trailer than ever before!
