    Official costume alert

    Spoiler:

    I, quite frankly, love it.
    I like it, but I think it's lacking... something. A focal point, an interesting detail, a decorative vegetable... something.

    It's a mash of Pertwee and Hartnell, and I think it demonstrates he's going to play the character pretty straight, which I am so down with after Matt Smith. A change in direction = ideal.

    The red lining is sweet.

    Agreed. It's just a bit bland. Kinda like a beef stew or something, nice but nothing special.

    It is only the first image after all.

    They might unveil his signature costume item in the episode itself. They wouldn't want to spoil the surprise now, would they?

    I think it's a little bland, but I think I could end up warming to it quite quickly. I hated Matt Smith's costume when I first saw it, then I fell in love with it when I saw it in his first episode proper. Things can often end up looking quite different on screen than they do in photo shoots and the like. Only time will tell.

    I hope 12 inverts the coat in some episodes so we get a groovy coat.

    The more I see the costume the more I warm to it. The writers are clearly going in a direction where the Doctor has more gravitas and I think Capaldi's outfit is stylish and classy. Not sure about the Docs at all but I'll wait to see him in action before I make a proper judgement.

    I'm not a betting man, but I would bet a few grand on those rumours being complete bull****. I mean, they even look like complete bull****, time was that the rumour mill would put some effort in.

    Potentially, but wrt mine Moffat has said before that Capaldi's previous appearance in pompeii will be explained...

    Agreed!

    Now they're starting the second cycle, it makes sense to pay homage to the earlier doctors. Pretty much all the new era Doctor Who seems to be based on Tom Baker onwards, it's good to see a homage to the first three doctors.

    I kinda hope they use the second cycle as an excuse to introduce something completely new, but fans seem to love bashing Moffat so maybe that'd be a step too far.

    I love the outfit, and I do think it looks very Pertwee, but it does also remind me of Dracula :laugh:

    I really dont see the point in explaining it. No one will care if he ignores it, it isnt that hard to believe that the doctor could regenerate into a body that looks very similar to that character.

    I bet we get a 4 series long arc about this which will end in the most anti climactic way imaginable. It is steven moffat we are talking about.

    Oh I'd be annoyed if he ignored it...but that's cos I hate poor continuity in everything, let alone major things like this.
