Although, it could be neat to have him trying one on in the scene where he's selecting his new outfit.
And then he would vomit or spontaneously regenerate.

I actually liked the question marks on the collar that the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Doctors had, it was kind of a subtle trademark that connected those incarnations of the Doctor, but I could see how it went too far on the Seventh Doctor's pullover and as his umbrella handle.

I wouldn't mind seeing the question mark symbol return for the Twelfth Doctor, but perhaps only on a ring or as cufflinks, something not too obvious.

Yes, because it was addressing a small detail that connected him visually with two earlier Doctors.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Frankly, I think it would be nice to get away from the Doctor having a real trademark look. What if the 12th Doctor just kinda wore stuff that didn't really draw attention to itself.

Although, I do think that the 12th Doctor should have a strong aversion to ties. "Ties are pointless." (In fact, I'm having this vision in my head of the Doctor ripping off the bow tie in disgust. Then, he comes to realize that the rest of his wardrobe is superfluous as well. By the time he's done, he's stripped down completely naked and Clara is struggling to think of a polite way to remind him that "People like clothes on other people... Just, generally that's kind of a thing...")

Smith, well, we remember the fez and the stetson mainly because River shot both of them, but he didn't wear them on a regular basis.
He also donned a top hat a few times: "The Big Bang," "Let's Kill Hitler," "The Snowmen." It may not have been a regular thing but it looked really good on him.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

When 12 tries on his outfit, they should do it a bit like T Baker and Sylvester's try ons and have multiple outfits before finally deciding on an outfit. or maybe it would be fun if Capaldi picks an awful outfit for the first episode, then at the end of it after his head clears up from his regeneration realises it's so bad and puts on a more normal, regular outfit to wear through out the rest of his tenure. I'm thinking that for the first episode he should wear a white or pale cream suit with red question marks going down it (like Sylvester's jumper but just the Q marks), an white shirt, and matching tie. But after that he dons a normal outfit the rest of his tenure. Would be a bit of fun.

But what doesn't really make sense to me is that the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th doctors all had question marks at some point, but what puzzles me is that he wears Q marks in a straight line of regenerations, then after 7, he never has a question mark anywhere near him again. Maybe it could have been a mid life crisis, but overall it doesn't make sense. Yeah, I know in real life why they topped wearing them (because they dated so quickly), but continuity wise, it makes no sense. Maybe some question mark cuff links could be cool.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

You also forget that DURING the Seventh Doctor's lifespan he abandoned the question marks. There's none to be found in The Enemy Within.

I have suggested elsewhere a similar idea. But I'd say have him adopt various pieces of his final outfit as he goes through the first season (or at least the first few episodes). Picking up a tie here, some shoes there, a jacket on this outing and a scarf on that one until finally having a bit moment at the climax of the season finale where he puts on a hat or a pin or whatever and says "yes, that will do."

It only works if his outfit is suitably patchwork though.

I didn't just didn't mention it. But does anyone find it's weird that at the end of T Bakers era, he suddenly randomly adopts question marks, wears them through out his 5th and 6th life, than wears them for a god chunk of his 7th incarnation before randomly scrapping them, and ever since he has never so much are looked at a question mark?

Would be funny, but no, I'd like to have the definitive outfit by the end of the first episode or beginning of the second episode. But for Capaldis first episode, I'd like to have him running round either in Smiths remains of an outfit or run around in this god awful outfit he will scrap at the end of the episode. It would be a nice mock to past incarnations immediately thinking about clothes as soon as he regenerates.

It was just a phase that the Doctor went through in his youth.

Or a mid life crisis.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Work in progress of another costume idea. Victorian by way of disco. Never mind the hands, I forgot to turn their layer back on.

Not too bad. Looks a bit....70s though. But he is an older man.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Exactly my intent. An aging man who's concept of fashionable is a bit out of date.

Considering other colors for the suit like blue, taupe, grey, etc. but the salmon has grown on me.
