Matt Lucas gives fans a sneak peek at new series of Doctor Who


Matt Lucas has given fans a taster as he starts shooting the upcoming series of Doctor Who.

The Little Britain star is reprising the role of Nardole in the tenth season of the sci-fi programme.

He is currently on location at Cardiff University as production gets under way, and gave fans a glimpse of the action in a 51-second video.

Matt, 42, said he was "ecstatic" to be back as he panned around, showing the Time Lord Peter Capaldi in the background.

Matt starred as Nardole in last year's Christmas Day special.

Doctor Who will return in December 2016 with a Christmas episode, followed by the new series in 2017.

This time Matt will appear from the start of the new series.
