NEW Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has admitted to first-day nerves after stepping onto the show's set in Cardiff yesterday.

The actor, who has replaced Matt Smith as the TV Time Lord, joined co-star Jenna Coleman in Splott.

He said: "New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I'm emerging from the Tardis into a whole other world."

Viewers got their first glimpse of Capaldi at the end of the Christmas Day episode of the long-running science fiction show. Show supremo Steven Moffat said: "First the eyebrows!

Then, at Christmas, the face! Coming soon, the whole Doctor. In the Cardiff studios, the Capaldi era begins." Filming took place early yesterday at Grade II-listed building The Maltings, a former Victorian malt house now used as offices and a records management facility.

Capaldi's first scenes were for an opening episode set in Victorian times.

A show source said: "Peter walked on set and didn't seem too nervous, more excited than anything.

He has been a Doctor Who fan since he was a kid so this is a big moment for him in his career and probably one of his ambitions he didn't think he would achieve in life."

The new series is not expected on screen on BBC1 until the second half of 2014.
