'Doctor Who' is returning to TV screens later this year and, judging by newly released photos, it looks like producers have found their strangest monster yet.

The Time Lord - played by Peter Capaldi in the forthcoming series of the hit sci-fi series - will be coming face-to-face with what is surely one of the show's most horrific creations ever, with sharp teeth, tough skin and what appear to be antennae, as revealed in new photos from the show's set.

Peter Capaldi took over the role of The Doctor from Matt Smith, who announced that he was leaving the show in 2013.

His final episode aired on Christmas Day, which saw Peter making his 'Doctor Who' debut.

It was recently reported that 'Line Of Duty' star Keeley Hawes will be playing a villainous banker when the series returns later this year.

The new series will also star 'Emmerdale' actor Samuel Anderson as a new character called Danny Pink.
