The BBC sci-fi series cast was on location at the Hadyn Ellis Building at Cardiff University, Wales. There, Capaldi and Coleman were spotted chatting outside of a bright blue police public call box. In the series, Coleman plays the Timelord’s assistant, Clara.
Series newcomer Jonathan Bailey was also on set Wednesday, sporting a mohawk and cybernetic parts on his scalp and face. Joining the trio was a new, unidentified Dr. Who villain. During the shooting, an actor walked around in an alien monster costume, complete with rippling muscles and a unique set of horns.

Although details have yet to emerge about the monster, certain plot details have been reported about Capaldi’s debut season in the role. For one, he’s expected to meet up with recurring characters Madam Vastra Strax and Jenny in the Victorian times in one of the earlier episodes.
Capaldi, 55, was announced as Matt Smith’s replacement back in August. Smith had played the titular role for three seasons, following David Tennant’s five years.
Dr. Who series 8 won't premiere until fall 2014.
