According to a BBC news release... Capaldi said, "New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I’m emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world."

Writer and producer Steven Moffat said, “First the eyebrows! Then, at Christmas, the face! Coming soon, the whole Doctor. In the Cardiff studios, the Capaldi era begins.”

Capaldi also appears on the front cover of the new Doctor Who magazine.
