Check Out Peter Capaldi's Doctor Who Costume

BBC gave Whovians a full glimpse of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.

No Caption Provided

BBC gave Doctor Who fans a preview of what Peter Capaldi will look like as the Doctor in the upcoming season of Doctor Who. 10.2 million fans got their very first look at Capaldi as the Doctor during the recent Christmas episode of the show.

The Doctor has a new look as Peter Capaldi’s era officially begins. In a picture released today by the BBC, Capaldi can be seen in the costume that will define his time as the Twelfth Time Lord in one of TV’s biggest roles. 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!”

Capaldi's look is straight to the point with very few thrills and no accessories. It looks very classy sleek. Although we won't see this new Doctor for quite a few months, since the new series began filming earlier this month, this is what Whovians can look forward to in the upcoming year.

What do you guys think of Capaldi's Doctor? Does this look for for you or is it missing something?

@jonsmith: It reminds me a lot of the 3rd Doctor's outfit..................... Minus the frills obviously.

The 3rd isn't high on my favorite Doctors list, but he was cool. If it turns out Capaldi's is based around the 3rd it would be fitting since Matt Smith's 11th took a lot of inspiration from the 2nd Doctor

It looks alright but it doesnt look like it has anything really distinguishing about it. Like 4ths scarf, 9ths Leather Jacket, 10ths coat or 11ths Bowtie ect. Maybe it will look better in motion.

I like it, reflects the direction they were hinting at for the character in the 50th special. I also like that the red breaks up the dark colors a bit. Interesting note that he has that red, much like Tennant's 10th had the red Converse, Smith's 11th had the red fez and red bowtie. It gives it a little kick, without being a joke.

I wonder if eventually he'll have an alternate outfit. Ten had the brown outfit and the blue one. Matt smith in the later seasons had the green coat and then the purple outfit.

Very Pertwee-ish, but a dash of modernization. I like it. The more we find out about this doctor the more I know he's gonna be great.

An interesting look. Was thinking it was something closer to Hartnell's general appearance but with a modern twist....which makes a bit of sense given these are supposed to be a new set of regenerations. Though his attitude definitely seems more in tune with Pertwee's which will be nice to see.

You redecorated…I don't like it.

>_> The pants and the shoes are my only real issue with this. Change those and I'm fine with it.

I wasn't sure at first, but I actually really like it. It reminds me quite a lot of William Hartnell's costume, which makes sense as Capaldi is the same age now as Hartnell was when he first became the Doctor, and they are both the 'first' doctor of a regeneration cycle.
