Doctor Who fans, brace yourselves. BBC America has gifted us the first official photo of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor in HIS NEW COSTUME! Spoiler: he’s not in pajamas this time. And he’s wearing Doc Martens. See the statement and image below.
A brand-new era of Doctor Who begins as the Time Lord dons a new look. Each incarnation of the Doctor has his own original style, and BBC AMERICA has just released the first photo of the Twelfth Doctor’s costume. Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Doc Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden. Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: “He’s woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.” While lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat added: “New Doctor, new era, and of course new clothes. Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over – Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you!” This new look will be featured in the series when Doctor Who returns to BBC AMERICA later this year. Filming on the upcoming season, which also stars Jenna Coleman (Death Comes to Pemberley) as companion Clara, is currently underway in Cardiff.
The Doctor’s new outfit is the most clean-cut and classic look we’ve seen the Doctor in since the 2005 reboot. Sort of a less flashy Third Doctor, right?
What do you think of the Doctor’s new digs?
