Series 8 is currently filming in Cardiff and is expected to begin airing in August.

Jenna Coleman, who plays companion Clara, told press at the event last night that there are “exciting times ahead” in the new series: “[Peter Capaldi is] great – of course, we all know he’s going to be wonderful. It’s been great to get up on our feet and get started – we just seem to have taken off like a rocket.”
