‘Doctor Who’ Season 8: The Doctor Is In On Peter Capaldi’s First Day of Filming [Photo]

Filming on season eight of Doctor Who commenced today (Tuesday, January 7th) and BBC One has released a first look at new Doctor Capaldie on set with his co-star and companion Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara). While the set photo gives away zero plot spoilers, it does give us a better glimpse at Capaldi’s Doctor. Sadly, his suit is not The Doctor’s official new look (you’re killing us here, BBC One).

“New job, first day, slightly nervous,” Capaldi said in a statement from the set in Cardiff. “Just like the Doctor, I’m emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world.”

Other tidbits released include that the first episode of the season was written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by Ben Wheatley. Filming will continue through August 2014. Season eight is set to premiere this spring.
