12th Doctor Costume?

So now we know who our twelfth doctor will be, what should he wear? Should he go for the more normal look that the ninth and tenth doctors sported, somewhere in-between like the eleventh doctor, something completely out of time and elegant like the first, third, and eight doctors, or even something completely motherfucking batshit crazy like the sixth doctor?

I'd like him to sport a long dark coat that looks like something from the 18th and 19th centuries or even medieval. Maybe a waistcoat along the lines of the eighth doctors, maybe even a cravat and pocket watch too. But I'd probably have it in a dark red or black, possibly even ark blue instead of the light gold look though.

What do you all think?

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

My best guess is that he'll be dressed nothing like the last 3 Doctors.

I don't think we'll get one looking as casual as Nine for some time.

Put Capaldi in a suit, even one as quirky as 10's, and he'll look too Malcolm Tucker.

11's outfit was perfect for Matt - the old soul in a young body - but if you put an older actor in it, he's going to look like a university lecturer.

While one might say, just go for the opposite of Matt - put an older actor in a younger man's costume - that's a tricky one to do. Mutton dressed as lamb and all that. Older men dressing like young men frequently look like knobs. IMHO. So my best bet, which will probably be wrong, as usual, is that they'll put him in something flamboyant, like Pertwee, Tom Baker or McGann. Hopefully nothing as frankly silly as Colin Baker's though.

I know it can't be too out there, but why not have him dress in something slightly futuristic?

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I'd say it's time to return to the Edwardian look, with a long coat, a vest or waistcoat, tweed pants and possibly a hat.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

We might not even know come Christmas Day when he makes his official debut.

Consider, When we watched Tennant morph into Smith, he still wore his pinstripe suit and trainers. It wasn't until the end of "The Eleventh Hours" that Matt donned his tweed jacket and bow tie. Of course, intrepid fans with camera phones managed to snap candid photos of Smith in his final ensemble a few months before the episode broadcast.

If Capaldi's initial series doesn't air until the Fall of 2014, we probably won't know his outfit until next summer, a good nine months from now.

Sincerely,

Bill

Actually, BBC released an official image of Smith in costume in July 2009, five months before we saw Tennant regenerate. Since filming of season 8 is supposed to start in the winter, that's when we'll get our first look at Capaldi's outfit.

With so many comparisons to the 1st doctor I could see the 12th doctor wearing something like Hartnell.

Capaldi even did the "suit tug" thing the 1st doctor did during the reveal show.

That's precisely the sort of thing I meant actually! There's another dad at my kids' school, much the same age as myself, maybe older (I'm 41) and he wears stuff like that. First day I saw him, he had pants hanging down his ass. I have wanted to beat him to death with my bare hands ever since.

It's odd, because on the one hand I think he'll be very smart and elegant (face it to some degree or another 9,10 and 11 have been every so slightly scruffy) but on the other hand I keep getting a slightly punk image in my head around Capaldi. Not talking safety pins or anything, I can just see a fairly traditional Victorian/Edwardian Doctor look that's offset by something very in your face.

Even Moffat's said that Smith was an old man in a young man's body and has intimated that Capaldi would be the reverse, so much as I imagine he'll lean towards a Pertwee look, I can't help but imagine something quite anarchic about his doctor and hence his look.

Think Third Doctor only instead of a frilly shirt a Sex Pistols t-shirt under the velvet smoking jacket!

Since we didn't get a female Doctor I think it's only fair that we get a cross-dressing Doctor. : P

I can't agree that Tennant's look as scruffy at all, his suits and coats were always clean, unlike say the second Doctor who had no problems getting muddy and even wearing out the knees on his pants at times. Eccleston had a workering class look and Smith's look was more of a middle class look. But I agree and I've said as much Capaldi would return to the Edwardian look.

I definitely get Hartnell vibes off that picture. Seeing Capaldi like that, I half expect him to end every second sentence with "hmmm?"
