Capaldi's Doctor: First Look!

Here he is, the 12th...uhm 13th... 14th? (MOFFAAAAAAAAAAATTTTT!!!) The NEW Doctor in his new duds, reminding me of Pertwee, especially in that pose.
See?

So... thoughts?

It reminds me too much of Matt Smith's second costume. Thumbs down.

HA! Great catch on the similarities of the pictures!
I love that he is such a fan!

Snazzy! I like it! I wonder what his iconic accessory will be.

Zundian: Definitely a similar cut to the jacket.

Kind of looks like a magician. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Definitely meant to evoke Pertwee, I think.

I would have liked to see him get Pharrel Williams' whole wardrobe.

Not sure on the Pertwee comparisons. Pertwee's doctor (both in costume and demeanor) was all about flare and flourishes, and while bits of it are stylistically similar, it's very much "lacking flare" in comparison to other Doctorish costumes.

To quote Capaldi on 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." Which isn't sounding very Pertwee at all (especially the "no frills" bit)

Pose is certainly delibrately similar though

I dunnno. I recall a lot of similar poses from both Tennant and Smith. DT once gave an interview with DWM where he talked about having those photos taken. He mentioned that there was a limited amount you could do. Running. Waving the sonic screwdriver around. And "wavey hand magic acting".

Siskoid said...

Hahaha, granted. But the red trim and gray hair seal the deal.

The Doctor in a steampunk workshop would make for a nice photo op too.

I definitely see the Pertweeness in Capaldi, dialed down because sleek is the new flamboyant.
