Matt Lucas has recorded a short behind the scenes video on location to celebrate his first day back filming Doctor Who.

It was officially announced earlier this month that the comedy actor will be joining the cast of Doctor Who as a regular in Season 10, which began filming last week.

Lucas commented: “We’re at Cardiff University today, doing some running around.”

The Little Britain actor joked: “That’s nice, trying to keep me fit, maybe I’ll lose some weight – my mother will be very happy!”

Matt Lucas made his debut as Nardole, who met the Doctor on the human colony of Mendorax Dellora in the year 5343, in last year’s Christmas special, ‘The Husbands of River Song’.

He recently revealed that “Nardole is becoming more textured” in the new episodes.
