While fans are still be drying their eyes over the Doctor Who Season 7 finale and the final appearance of Matt Smith in this iconic title role, production on the long-running series is moving full speed ahead.

In anticipation of new episodes, in fact, BBC has released a set shot of Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman on the show's set, scripts in hands, smiles on faces.

"New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I'm emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world," Capaldi said in a statement that accompanied the photo.

Note that the actor is still wearing Smith's costume from the Christmas special regeneration scene.

The Season 8 premiere will be written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by Ben Wheatley. It will likely air in late 2014

Until then, catch up now when you watch Doctor Who online.
