Daleks, The Mistress, and Maisie Williams in first trailer for Doctor Who Series 9

The surprises have already begun rolling in from San Diego Comic-Con, and since Thursday afternoon brought with it the Doctor Who panel, we were hoping for some footage. Luckily we got it, in the form of a trailer released by the BBC around the same time the panel was going on.

"I'm The Doctor, and I save people."

Those words seems to be the guiding light of the epic trailer, which features everything from Daleks to Zygons to The Mistress (Michelle Gomez), all while The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) meditates on his continued fascination with the universe and everything that's still capable of astonishing him. Plus, Maisie Williams makes a very mysterious appearance, The Doctor's hair is approaching Jon Pertwee (The Third Doctor) height, and more.

Check out the trailer below.

Doctor Who returns Sept. 19 on BBC One and (hopefully) BBC America.
