We got to see a brief look of Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who in the 50th Anniversary Special and again at the end of the Christmas Special episode. The BBC just dropped the latest official photo of the new Doctor Who. Peter Capaldi plays the Twelfth Time Lord is a Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt and a pair of Dr. Marten shoes. This particular look was created by Howard Burden.
Peter Capaldi had this to say about his costume: "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!"
Filming for episode one of series 8 began earlier this month, after 10.2 million tuned-in on Christmas Day to get their first much-anticipated glimpse of Capaldi’s Doctor. 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.
