    On Saturday, 23 August, the new series begins with a feature-length episode called Deep Breath. We’ve had glimpses of the adventure in teasers and trailers but here are new photos that give us a further hint at what’s ahead…

    The image above is, of course, the Doctor himself: Peter Capaldi! In this shot he’s wearing the Eleventh Doctor’s clothes so at this point he presumably hasn’t got his hands on his smart new attire…

    The image below is another shot of the Doctor, this time looking slightly more austere…

    It’s Madame Vastra! (Below) And the self-proclaimed ‘lizard woman from the dawn of time’ isn’t the only familiar face returning in Deep Breath. Vastra (played by Neve McIntosh) will be joined by her fellow members of the Paternoster Gang - Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) and the Sontaran, Strax (Dan Starkey).

    Partners in crime? It’s the Doctor, deep in discussion with Clara…

    And finally, here’s another shot of the Time Lord and his companion – both back on BBC One on 23 August! Don’t forget, you can watch trailers and teasers for the new series now!

Joining them in the Hayes will be Cybermen and Daleks.

    Brian Minchin, Executive Producer of Doctor Who said, “After seven months of filming the moment has finally arrived when we get to introduce Peter Capaldi to the world. And where better to start but Cardiff, the home of Doctor Who!”

    BBC Wales Director Rhodri Talfan Davies says: “Doctor Who is getting even bigger and even better - and it's a real thrill that the show's fans here in Wales will be the very first to see the new Doctor at this very special premiere screening. Doctor Who has been made in Wales for almost ten years - and we're so proud of its worldwide success.”

    Cybermen: Status Update

    Nicholas Briggs has been the ‘Voice of the Cybermen’ since their return in 2006 and so who better to read Cybermen: Status Update, the new adventure that you’ll find in Doctor Who – The Cybermen Monster File Ebook?

    Aside from the Cybermen he’s also voiced an array of aliens including the Daleks, Skaldak the Ice Warrior, Zygons and the Judoon. You can hear how Nicholas brought Cybermen: Status Update to life by listening to an extract from the story or you can enjoy the entire adventure by downloading the Monster File.

    We caught up with Nicholas and asked for his unique take on the Cybermen, their new story, his favourite Cyber moments and who would have won the Time War had the Time Lords been fighting the Cybermen…

     

    Question: The Doctor has faced literally hundreds of villains and monsters over the decades… What makes the Cybermen so special?

    Nicholas Briggs: I think what makes them so scary is that they are essentially ‘us’ but with all the humanity removed. The walk, they talk, but they have blank faces and no emotions. That means they are devoid of all the things that make us human. They have no conscience, no pity and no love. And they want...
