The BBC has released the first official picture of Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman filming the new series of Doctor Who...

“New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I'm emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world.”

According to the BBC. those were Peter Capaldi's thoughts on his first day filming Doctor Who's eighth series in Cardiff, released along with this accompanying image showing the Doctor and Clara in their Christmas episode gear.

Notably, Capaldi's Doctor's is still in Matt Smith's clobber (minus the bow-tie), keeping his costume under wraps for a later reveal.

The actor is currently filming the first two episodes of the eighth series, the first written by Steven Moffat and the second by Phil Ford, both to be directed by Ben Wheatley (SightseersA Field In England).

Steven Moffat's bon mots to mark the event were, “First the eyebrows! Then, at Christmas, the face! Coming soon, the whole Doctor. In the Cardiff studios, the Capaldi era begins.”

Many hurrahs for that. More news as it arrives.
