I’m one of the Doctor Who fans who were introduced to the series through the New Who and know little to nothing about the previous 8 or 9 incarnations. So I see Capaldi’s age as less of a return and more as new and interesting territory. Today, the BBC released the first picture of his signature outfit, and it seems that it too is a little more grown up. While the red lining is a great touch, it lacks the radically out of place wardrobe pieces that marked the previous three looks. No “sandshoes,” leather jackets, or bow ties here!
Overall, it seems like a sharp new look that’ll be fun to cosplay. But I’m still hoping that they’ll find something else to add a touch of flare. Perhaps a hat or a radical new sonic? What do you think? Is this new look too somber and professional for the Doctor? Or does it fit in with all the other changes?
