Peter Capaldi has officially taken over for Matt Smith as the 12th Doctor in the BBC series, “Doctor Who.” Production on the 8th season began in Cardiff this week and BBC has revealed the first look at Capaldi in the titular role.
Capaldi can be seen in the costume that will define his time as the Twelfth Time Lord, BBC said in a press release. 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!”
