Peter Capaldi had a mishap on the set of the new series of 'Doctor Who' and got "soaking wet"

Peter Capaldi accidentally stumbled into a shower and got soaked while filming 'Doctor Who' at a power station.

The 57-year-old actor took a wrong turn when he wandered off to look for something to eat during filming of the upcoming sixth series and got soaked by a shower he believed was for people who had been contaminated by uranium.

Explaining that on his way back to the set following a break on a night shoot, he found a door, pushed it open and discovered a mystery room that was actually a shower which he thinks "is there in case you get uranium on you".

The 'Paddington' star - who took over as the titular Time Lord last year - returned to the set "soaking wet", according to his co-star Jenna-Louise Coleman, who added: "Everybody had hairdryers on him."

Meanwhile, Peter has also revealed that forthcoming episodes of the BBC sci-fi series will "follow the vein of old horror movies".

Speaking at the Apple Store in Berlin he also said that the Doctor will be "very bonded" to his assistant Clara Oswald (Jenna), but that he'd have to deal with a "deepening shadow" cast over him.

Peter added: "Even the Doctor knows that life is short and he is now trying to get on with it."

He also said the show will be different from last year but promised the changes will be "organic".
