ALL is not what it seems in this new scene from Doctor Who. You might expect to see the brunette flowing locks of Jenna Coleman on the back of a motorbike but look closely and you will actually see a pair of hairy legs dressed in tights and a skirt.

Jenna's male stunt double MATTHEW HORWOOD

The doctor's companion was a HE for this scene as a male stunt double stepped in for the actress for this motorbike shot filmed in Cardiff city centre yesterday.

The male stunt double for leading lady Ms Coleman, who plays Clara Oswald in the hit television series, was spotted near the Mercure Hotel off Newport Road sporting a helmet, leather biker jacket, and heeled boots alongside the character's motorbike.

Fans were quick to share their excitement on Twitter too, with the stunt double also receiving some positive attention.

"# dwsr [ DrWhoSetReports] seems very interesting. It's nice to see some new set pics again," said one follower.

"Love the stunt guy on the motorbike wearing Clara's dress," another posted.
