'Doctor Who' Cast Breaks Down 50 Years Of Plot In 30 Seconds

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman 'exterminate' the previous explanation record.

With 50 years of television history, and seven (recent) seasons of plot to get caught up on, getting ready for the eighth series premiere of "Doctor Who" can be a daunting task.

That's exactly why, when MTV News caught up with series stars Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Executive Producer Steven Moffat and after-show host/professional Whovian Chris Hardwick on the TARDIS blue carpet premiere in New York City, we asked them to get fans up to speed in no time.

Specifically, in 30 seconds. With as many sound effects as possible.

There you go, everything you ever needed to know about "Doctor Who," simply and easily explained! Now take a deep breath, and get ready for the premiere on BBC America on Saturday, August 23 at 8 p.m. ET.
