The BBC has released the first picture of Peter Capaldi wearing the new Doctor's costume (above) along with a press release that reads: The Doctor has a new look as Peter Capaldi's era officially begins. In a picture released today by the BBC, Capaldi can be seen in the costume that will define his time...
Doctor Who fans have been given their first glimpse of The Doctor's new look following his latest regeneration. Peter Capaldi, who replaces Matt Smith, will have a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, white shirt and black Dr Marten shoes. Filming for the new series began in Cardiff earlier this month.
Peter Capaldi's new Doctor Who outfit was unveiled tonight, and while some people found it a little "boring", it's safe to say the overall reaction to the stripped back look was positive. Nevertheless, questions remain. Which former Doctor's outfit does it most resemble? Should the bow-tie be replaced with a new sartorial accessory?
Since Matt Smith dropped his trademark bow tie on Christmas Day, before combusting before our very eyes, Doctor Who fans have been wondering what exactly Peter Capaldi's Doctor would wear. Sure, it's not one of the bigger questions we have, but now we can wonder no more.
Capaldi's slick blue over-coat and waistcoat worn with shiny Dr Martens suggest he's going to play it straighter than Matt Smith I'd just like to clarify that I am NO expert on Doctor Who, so intergalactic aficionados please don't take offence...
Finally we have our first glimpse of the Twelth Doctor's new threads - Jon Cooper explains what they tell us about the next Time Lord In what Who fans generally refer to as 'The Wildnerness Years' - that dark period when our favourite Time Lord was denied telly time after the classic series got canned in 1989 - we were happy if the show got mentioned in some snarky, offhand way in the Sales & Wanted section of Shepton Mallet's parish newsletter.
Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi's new outfit was unveiled last night, to a largely positive reaction. Among the many comparisons made were Jon Pertwee's third Doctor and a magician, but fashion-conscious Whovians spotted a mod-influenced style.
Online columnist Gary Bainbridge has nowhere in his coat to put a sonic screwdriver Whenever I see a man going about the place with the top button of his shirt fastened, I find myself scanning the floor in an attempt to help him find his clip-on tie.
I can't help feeling a twinge of envy for the wonderful wardrobe opportunities extended to Peter Capaldi this year. The damp dreariness of January has already been brightened by his outfits in the Musketeers. But this is a mere sartorial amuse bouche for when he comes to reinterpret the canonical role of Doctor Who.
Doctor Who is a global sci-fi icon who's authentically British: so bravo to Peter Capaldi for choosing to shoe his, twelfth, version of the Time Lord in authentically British shoes. As reported elsewhere in the Telegraph today, the BBC boo-booed big time when it wrongly stated that the shoes worn by Capaldi in its first publicity picture of him were made by Dr Martens.
