Pete Capaldi makes a brief appearance in the second teaser trailer for the new series of Doctor Who. Click below to watch now.

Doctor Who returns to BBC1 in August. As previously reported, comedian Frank Skinner has also been cast in the show.

Details of Skinner's character have yet to be revealed, but he will appear alongside Peter Capaldi in an episode being written by Jamie Mathieson. Pop star Foxes will also appear while Jenna Coleman is returning as the Doctor's assistant, Clara Oswald.

A report out earlier this year claimed that Capaldi, who replaces Matt Smith at the Time Lord for the character's latest regeneration, based his look as the Doctor on David Bowie. Speaking about his look, Capaldi is quoted as saying: "He's woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord."
