NEW Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi admitted to first-day nerves after stepping on to the show's set today.

The Glasgow-born actor, Matt Smith's successor as the TV Time Lord, joined companion Jenna Coleman – who plays Clara Oswald – in Cardiff. 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. Showrunner 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 on the latest series goes on until august.

Capaldi has told how he was left nursing a dislocated thumb after an on-set accident for another new Tv role. after getting tangled in a frock.

The actor got caught in a co-star's period costume while filming his new BBC drama

The Musketeers, based on the characters created by Alexandre Dumas. He plays Cardinal Richelieu, confidant of the French king in the new series which begins later this month.

Capaldi said: "I suffered a nasty dislocated thumb, but embarrassingly, not from swinging a sword around. instead, my injury came from a domestic the cardinal was having with milady, Maimie McCoy."
