“No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.”
The BBC has released the first picture of Peter Capaldi wearing the new Doctor’s costume (above).
As Peter Capaldi’s era officially begins in series 8, Capaldi can be seen in the costume that will define his time as the Twelfth Time Lord in the BBC One sci-fi drama, Doctor Who. 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.
Commenting on his costume, 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.”
While lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat added: “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, commented: “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.”
Series 8 of Doctor Who began filming earlier this month with transmission expected in the autumn on BBC One.
