We’ve seen a few images of Peter Capaldi in his Doctor Who costume and some on-set fan snaps of him during the filming, but the above picture is, I believe, the first to be officially released from the season 8 premiere episode, Deep Breath.
I found it in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, at the head of Clark Collis’ entertaining article on the new season.
The script for Deep Breath and four more episodes escaped into the wild this week. Thanks to a friend of a friend, I did get to read them and enjoy them. I won’t be spoiling them, however, and any little references or in-jokes I might make will just be big sexy non sequiturs.
Deep Breath premieres on August 23rd on both BBC One and BBC America.
