Peter Capaldi Shops for his Outfit…
Will it be a return to ruffled shirts? Baggy check trousers? A long trench coat or an even longer scarf, perhaps? Or how about some completely-off-the-wall quasi-futuristic super shiny spandex number?
Whatever the case - and hopefully it’s not that last one – Steven Moffat says that Peter Capaldi is currently putting together his official Twelfth Doctor outfit:
“[Peter] was texting me ‘I’m out with [the wardrobe stylist] at the moment, it’s going quite well’ and some descriptions of clothes I did not understand. If it’s not a suit…”
And although the showrunner has the ultimate thumbs up or thumbs down, it doesn’t sound like he actually has much say in the matter…
“I’ll just let them get on with it and it’ll be ‘yes’ or ‘no’ a the end. Matt said ‘I should be a boffin, I think I need to go with the bow tie’ and I said ‘No, absolutely not, you’re not wearing a bow tie – that’s a cartoon idea of what Doctor Who is… Oh, you are going to wear a bow tie – you look incredible in it. And from that moment on he suddenly came to life…he was the Doctor.”
Kasterborites, it’s time to put on your thinking bow-ties. If there was one item that would make Capaldi’s Doctor look iconic, what would it be? And vice versa, is there a clothing item (fez? question mark jumper?) that would totally ruin him for you?
Hmmm, maybe that spandex wouldn’t be such a bad idea…
