"It started." Filming for Series 8 of 'Doctor Who' has begun today. A great day for Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) and Peter Capaldi who is now the Doctor.
In "The Time of the Doctor" (broadcast on December 25 and watched by around 10.2 million fans) we saw Doctor's 13th regeneration and the first 30 seconds of Capaldi on the series. "Kidneys ! I've got new kidneys ! I don't like the color. [...] Do you happen to know how to fly this thing ?" A funny sentence as the Eleventh made with his "And still not ginger !".
Filming for Series 8 begins today in Cardiff Studios, and first picture shows Capaldi with Eleventh's clothes, apparently for preparing a scene of the first episode (written by Steven Moffat) where the Doctor and Clara, both in the TARDIS, are crashing. Other pictures posted on Twitter revealed that Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Catrin Stewart (Jenny) and Dan Starkey (Strax) are also in filming. By the way they will appear in the first episode.

"New job, first day, slightly nervous", Peter Capaldi said. "Just like the Doctor, I'm emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world."
The Series 8 whose Doctor Who fans wait would contain 13 episodes and would be broadcast in the second half of 2014, according to Steven Moffat. A long wait before we'll know more infos about the episodes, but we already know the new goal of the Doctor : come back to Gallifrey ...
