The latest series of Doctor Who currently filming in Cardiff, the BBC has today revealed the first official look at Peter Capaldi in full costume as the 12th Doctor. Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr. Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden.
The eighth modern Doctor Who series also stars Jenna Coleman, reprising her role as Clara Oswald. Lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat has scripted the first episode of the new series with Phil Ford drafting the second. Both are directed by Ben Wheatley.
We know Capaldi didn’t like the color of his kidneys but what of his look:
“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.”
“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!”
Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One had this to sat:
“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.”
Doctor Who is executive produced by Moffat and Brian Minchin, and produced by Nikki Wilson and Peter Bennett. It is a BBC Cymru Wales production for BBC One.
