New Doctor Who Star Peter Capaldi Starts Filming
Date Posted: 08/01/14
Yesterday marked a special occasion in the world of Doctor Who.
The BBC has announced that it was The Thick of It star Peter Capaldi's first complete day filming in the role of the Doctor - a part he's recently taken over from Matt Smith.
As he arrived to start filming for the latest series of the programme, Capaldi commented: "New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I'm emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world."
It comes after Capaldi's first speaking performance in his new role was broadcast on December 25th with The Time of the Doctor, a Christmas Day special which saw Matt Smith's character regenerate, after Smith decided to move on from the show.
Shooting for the new series, the eighth full run since Doctor Who returned to screens in 2005, will continue in Cardiff until this August.
Though Peter's first day is exciting news, there is now a relatively long wait for fresh episodes to hit screens.
Fans could make sure there's still Doctor Who excitement in their lives with a trip to the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, perhaps booking Cardiff hotels for their visit to the city, too.
