Peter Capaldi Starts Filming Doctor Who Series In Cardiff
The Doctor also had assistant Jenna Coleman by his side...
Samuel Anderson – best known as policeman Ross Kirk in Emmerdale – was also seen on set. He is set to play Danny Pink, a fellow teacher at Coal Hill School, where Clara works.
"For the fourth time in Doctor Who history, Coal Hill School is coming to the aid of the TARDIS,” writer and producer Steven Moffat explained.
“In 1963 teachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright accompanied the First Doctor. These days it's the turn of Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald.”
As well as helping out in the classroom, Clara will of course be assisting the twelfth Doctor, played by Capaldi. The Thick Of It actor made his debut as the Doctor in December during the show’s Christmas special. He takes over from eleventh Doctor Matt Smith.
Also spotted on set was an actor dressed as some kind of horned alien, presumably one of the baddies the Doctor is set to battle in the upcoming series.
The latest series of Doctor Who is set to air in the autumn.
