The BBC America pre-order page includes an overview of the entire eighth series, which reads:
Doctor Who Series 8 sees a brand new face at the controls of the TARDIS as Peter Capaldi becomes the Twelfth Doctor steering the blue box on a series of amazing adventures. In a feature-length opener we see the new Doctor crash land in Victorian London. As Clara (Jenna Coleman) struggles to recognise the man she thought she knew so well, killers are stalking the capital. A slaughterhouse restaurant and a buried space ship lead the Doctor into a confrontation with a long forgotten foe… but how far is this new man ready to go to protect his friends? The new series sees the Doctor and Clara encounter wonders and horrors. They meet a fleet of Daleks as they attempt to rescue a stranded ship of human survivors, face ranks of Cybermen stalking the Earth, go back in time and join Robin Hood in a fight with killer robots in Sherwood Forest, become bank robbers when they break into the deadliest bank in the cosmos, face a Mummy on the Orient Express, discover a deadly horror dwelling on the Moon, and come to know the last man standing at the end of the Universe. But amidst the thrills and scares there is beauty and heart; London overgrown by trees is a magical place, and what they see along the way helps them be kinder, braver, less scared. As Clara falls for handsome fellow teacher, Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson), can she keep her two extraordinary lives going? And when it comes to it, how far will she go to keep Danny Pink alive?
The DVD/BluRay is now available for pre-order. The DVD is listed at $71.98, the BluRay $89.98. They are also available for pre-order on Amazon.
Doctor Who returns to our screens on Christmas Day, when the Doctor and Clara team up with Father Christmas in “Last Christmas.”
