Peter Capaldi’s debut Doctor Who adventure has a synopsis. Here's the overview of Deep Breath.

If you’ve managed to steer clear of spoilers for Doctor Who series eight opener Deep Breath, we now have a synopsis for the episode to help tide you over.

Here it is:

“When the Doctor arrives in Victorian London, he finds a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions.

Who is the new Doctor and will Clara’s friendship survive as they embark on a terrifying mission into the heart of an alien conspiracy? The Doctor has changed. It’s time you knew him.”

Fairly vague then, but it does confirm that the dinosaur from the series trailer will be seen in this episode. There’s confirmation as well that the shifting dynamic between The Doctor and Clara will be a central element of the plot. Those combustions sound like an interesting concept, too.

To learn more about the episode, without any fear of spoilers, here’s our 100% spoiler-free review.

Doctor Who returns on Saturday the 23rd of August.
