Seems designed to evoke the first three Doctors simultaneously (with just a smidge of Cumberbatch's Sherlock and Hammer which'll please future showrunner Mark Gatiss). To an extent it's practically what Matt Smith was wearing at the end with a different jacket. The no-tie approach but still buttoned up is an interesting choice, I suppose. Where's 1993's Lowri Turner when you need her?
Meanwhile everyone's talking in soundbites.
Capaldi says: "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."Perhaps the most interesting thing about the photo is that for all the talk about his age, Capaldi looks like he's still going to be a very physical Doctor all thrusting limbs and so forth, though I'm not sure about the running in those shoes. Whenever I have nice shoes like that they have a crease in them within minutes because I've had to run for the bus.
Moffat says: "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, says: "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."
