The Leather Clad Doctor

Daaaarrrllinng, Tweed is soooo 2010.

Matt Smith is looking for a change of threads for his Doctor. Speaking at a private viewing of the painfully modern Swedish fashion label Acne’s collaboration with artist Daniel Silver Matt told the Daily Telegraph that he felt ‘stuck’ with the iconic look – a look he had initially shaped himself.

If given carte blanche Matt would like to liberate the Harris Tweed and replace it with a spot of leather (that sound you just heard – that was the combined explosion of a thousand fan fiction writers and a small cottage industry):

“That would be good.”

He wears leather now. Leather is cool.

Thanks to Kasterborous Associate Editor Brian A. Terranova, we can give you a taste of exactly how cool the Eleventh Doctor would look by swapping the Tweed jacket for something more bovine-based.

Looks good, don’t you think? (So good, punpkiny asked if he could borrow the photo for his Eleventh Doctor costume making blog!)


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
