'Doctor Who' Series 8: New Monster On Set With Peter Capaldi And Jenna Coleman Is Strangest Yet (PICTURES)

'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.

Also spotted on set with Peter was actress Jenna Coleman, who has played The Doctor's companion Clara Oswald in the series since 2012.

The pair were photographed during filming in Cardiff standing in front of the show's iconic TARDIS.

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.

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