Peter Capaldi on set with Jenna Coleman.

The BBC has issued a press release and a photo of new Doctor Peter Capaldi’s first day on set. Although Radio Times recently reported that Peter’s costume will be a “bit old fashioned to denote the fact that he is the oldest Doctor but also looking to the future as well”, BBC isn’t giving anything away yet. Peter is still wearing Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith’s costume in the photo, sans the bow-tie.

Arriving on set in Cardiff to begin filming, Peter Capaldi said:

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