The Who newcomer, who plays new companion Bill, was seen script in hand and a cup of something warming as Doctor Who began shooting in Cardiff.

The actor has already had the blessing of former companion Jenna Coleman. Mackie shared a shot of the bouquet of flowers that Coleman had sent her for the first day of filming.

A week ago, Mackie and Peter Capaldi sat down for the first read-through of the series 10 script. Now they are already setting to work in Cardiff city centre.
