Watch out Whovians, because here comes the new Doctor. Series 8 of “Doctor Who” begins production Tuesday (Jan. 7) and the first photo from the set has been released. It features new Doctor Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman looking ready for work, script in hand.
“New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I’m emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world,” Capaldi says in a statement. It looks like the Series 8 premiere will pick up right where the Christmas special left off, as Capaldi is still wearing Matt Smith’s costume from the regeneration scene.
The Series 8 premiere is written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by Ben Wheatley. Production on the show will continue until August. There is still no announced premiere date for the new season, but it’s expected in the third quarter of the year.
