THOUSANDS of Who fans from across the globe gave new Time Lord Peter Capaldi a rousing welcome ahead of his debut performance.

The Scottish actor and co-star Jenna Louise Coleman were given the red carpet treatment in Cardiff as they attended the premiere for the new BBC series, which airs later this month.

Capaldi takes the helm from previous Doctor Matt Smith and those in the know say he will bring a darker edge to one of TV's most famous roles.

The first-ever screening of new episode Deep Breath was shown the Welsh capital's St David's Hall ahead of a performance at The British Film Institute in London.

A navy-suited Capaldi and Coleman, in an elegant red dress, were greeted with cheers from the moment they stepped out of their chaffeur-driven Mercedes and walked to the venue, signing autographs and dodging a few Daleks and Cybermen in the process too.

Tickets to catch a glimpse of Capaldi in the Doctor's role were snapped up within minutes - with fans travelling from as far as France, Japan and the USA.

Capaldi said they could expect a very different Doctor. He said: "He's going to be darker but also very fun."
