bonus Doctor Who thing: Capaldi in costume

Breaking news! The BBC has released a photo of Peter Capaldi in costume as the Whatever The Hell Number Doctor he’s supposed to be:


Simple. Elegant. Hot.

Capaldi likes it, too. He’s quoted in the BBC press release, referring to costume designer Howard Burden:

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.

My god, Capaldi is already loving being the Doctor, isn’t he?

I’ll be in my dimensionally transcendental bunk.

I never really cottoned to the Doctor Who costumes, but Howard Burden did well with this new look. I really like the blazer with the shiny red underlining.

I like it. Simple, yes, but it has hints of old ones (the cape is close to the third doctor’s). And I don’t care what anyone says, he’s 12. I’m a mathematician, so once I assign something a number I can’t change it.

Not bad; as Jurgan points out, quite Glam Doctor in places.

I can’t get very excited about the actor when I know the scripts are still going to be going through the Moffat filter.

Not bad at all. If I were to have a complaint, it’s that it doesn’t seem like much of a change from what Matt Smith eventually settled on but that’s a tiny, minor issue.
