As previously reported, shooting has begun on the new Doctor Who stories starting with the 60-minute Christmas special scheduled for later this year.
Long-time Doctor Who fan, David Tennant filling the shoes of Christopher Eccleston as the latest incarnation of The Doctor is excited about beginning work on the show.
According to reports, Tennant has stated that work on the series is "pretty daunting" and "the series is so huge."
He added, "I'm aware of all that but I try to keep it in my back pocket and just get on with the job."
"It's great - you get to play a Time Lord and have a TARDIS. You can't knock that!"
A restaurant in the Mermaid Quay area of Cardiff Bay was taken over by the Doctor Who cast and crew for a morning shoot.
"Filming will take place over the next eight months. We will be filming in various locations around Cardiff and south Wales as well as London," said Cassandra Power, a spokeswoman for the BBC.
