Filming for the new series of Doctor Who seems to be in full swing from the amount of reports that have come out.
Seen something Doctor? Peter Capaldi up a tree at Bute Park in Cardiff.
Wales Online yesterday were reporting that Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman were seen in Bute Park, along with the TARDIS and even a Minotaur type creature. The Minotaur was last scene in the episode The God Complex. Capaldi is reported to have been climbing trees, looking through binoculars and covered in cuts and bruises.
Jenna meanwhile was bundled up and signing autographs for watching fans.
As per usual, details from the new series have been kept very under wraps so what it all means is unclear. From the little we have seen of the new Doctor, I am very intrigued.

You can find more pictures from the filming of Doctor Who and even some behind the scenes tit bits from the filming of His Last Vow, the Sherlock finale from the last series, at the Wales Online article.

According to a Digital Spy article dated January 9th, whilst series 4 of Sherlock has not yet been confirmed by the BBC, it is expected to be announced soon.

Moffat says he and Gatiss have already planned out series 4 and 5 and, if given the green light by the BBC, will begin filming as soon as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s schedules allow.
