One thing we now know about the new season of the long-running sci-fi program Doctor Who: It’s going to feature the sound of clanking.

The BBC has posted a behind-the-scenes photo on the official Doctor Who Twitter feed of the show’s new star Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It) in the company of some Cybermen, the second-most-dreaded of the Time Lord’s metallic foes after the Daleks. The shot, reproduced above, also features actress Michelle Gomez (Green Wing) who, it was announced yesterday, is playing a character known as the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere.

The photo was almost certainly taken during the shooting of the season’s two-part finale, which is currently being directed in Cardiff, Wales, by Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl). The new season of Doctor Who will debut on BBC America, August 23. You can watch the show’s most recent teaser trailer below.
