New teaser trailer for the next season of Doctor Who, with a season launch date of August 23

We’ve been told that Peter Capaldi’s Doctor would be a departure from some of the more recent ones, which will be nice, because before the show’s hiatus, there was a much broader range of Doctor personalities than we’ve gotten so far, even if some of them weren’t all that great.

Calling it “the next great American sports league”, Total Slaughter is a project headed by Eminem to bring the glory, verbal wizardry and mic dropping to America and the world.
