The BBC has released a brand-new, tantalizing teaser trailer for the upcoming season-eight premiere of Doctor Who.

“The Doctor needs us, you more than anyone.”

It's on Madame Vastra’s (Neve McIntosh) portentous words, as well as on the thrilling sight of a roaring T-rex, that this exciting 30-second teaser trailer for Doctor Who’s season-eight premiere episode, “Deep Breath,” begins.

Not only that, but we also catch sight of the mysterious cyborg who'll appear in showrunner Steven Moffat's yarn, set again in Victorian times.

It’s definitely great to see the kick-ass Silurian madam again, along with her human companion Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart), and it should be fun to see the Paternoster gang interact with Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord.

Doctor Who returns to TV on Aug. 23.
