BREAKING: Peter Capaldi to wear clothing on “Doctor Who”
“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.” said Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One.
Peter Capaldi said: “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.”
Much of The Doctor’s character comes from the clothes he wears, from the very formal attire of William Hartnell, to the “Space Hobo” of Patrick Troughton, to the iconic scarf of Tom Baker. This outfit bears some similarities to Matt Smith’s final outfit; sans the bow tie and the red jacket lining has already got everyone talking. Like Matt and David Tennant before him, the outfit is simple, stylish, and doesn’t shout louder than the actor within it.
Hopefully it doesn’t clash with his kidneys.
