Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Gets His Own Look At Last!

As expected, the BBC has released the first image of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor!

The threads above have a feel of Jon Pertwee about them (especially that rich red lining and sharp white shirt) but they are unmistakeably original!

The BBC tell us that the Doctor sports a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr. Marten shoes, in a look created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden.

What does Capaldi think?

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.

“Rebel”? Could Capaldi’s incarnation be drawn from the punk movement?

Peter Capaldi as the Doctor!

Meanwhile executive producer Steven Moffat declared:

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!

With a final PR platitude, Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, claimed:

Peter Capaldi’s Doctor is officially recorded in history today with the unveiling of his new costume. It’s sharp, smart and stylish – The Twelfth Time Lord means business.

Wouldn’t be much of a show otherwise, would it?

Still, it’s a striking new look. What do you think?
