Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Time for that mime outfit the fourth tried on when he was picking his outfit. Or maybe the barbarian thing.

A revision. Still a lot of changes/refinement to come.

I love it. I would totally wear that. Not sure about the Doctor, tho.
Give it a shot, send me a picture.

That wasn't exactly what I was going for, but sure.

I haven't touched that sketch in quite a while now, but maybe I'll give it one last go if I get home before they reveal his outfit.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

A BBC source tells me that the decision over the costume was ultimately made by a combination of Capaldi himself, executive producer Brian Minchin, showrunner Steven Moffat and senior members of the art team and had to be approved by senior BBC executives.

Capaldi’s costume mixes old and new – is a “bit old fashioned to denote the fact that he is the oldest Doctor” but is also “looking to the future as well” says the well-placed sourced.

Interesting if slightly enigmatic words but all the source would currently divulge.

Earlier this year, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat said of Capaldi, “he likes his clothes….he’s got very strong opinions about clothes, he’s very dashing".

My guess is that there will be something quite gentlemanly and distinguished about his attire – maybe a frock coat perhaps, or something C19th a la his favourite Doctor William Hartnell. I suspect he won’t have the eye-watering coat of a Colin Baker or the Christmas jumper look of Sylvester McCoy, with all those question marks.

But what of that modern twist? Exactly what that will be remains to be seen.

I'm thinking something from the Tardis' Pompeii Collection.

The picture in that link of bearded Capaldi is awesome. Just saying. A shame he isn't sporting that as the Doctor.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

I'm more interested in whether or not we're getting a new sonic screwdriver.

I suppose they could go with a Fifth Doctor "no Screwdriver needed" approach, but something tells me the marketing department, which I've seen is coming out with "The Other Doctor's" sonic screwdriver toy, would be keen on a new screwdriver to sell.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Well, on the "Making of" featurette for the Christmas special, it showed them say goodbye to Matt and they gave him a box with his screwdriver in it. I don't know whether that was because he was attached to it or it had a symbolic meaning. So we may indeed be getting a new one.

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

Hmm, "film noir" is usually associated with the 1940s. Then again, men's fashion didn't vary that greatly. The shirt collars were taller and tighter and the suits a bit more trim. Suits of the 40s were a bit looser.

Here's a Google link for 20s fashion for men.

https://www.google.im/search?q=%22fa...mages&tbm=isch

Thing is, David Tennant's ensemble pretty well straddled those decades, both with his pinstripe suit and his trenchcoat (though it was longer than the norm for that era). About the only thing he lacked was a fedora. Oh, I'm sure Capaldi would look quite dashing in such a wardrobe, but general audiences would think the costume department was repeating itself.

Sincerely,

Bill

Yeah, trench coat is probably not the best idea right now simply because Tennant had one.

I am, however, pro hat. It doesn't have to be a fedora (which is overplayed these days), but we haven't had a good hat since the revival (and a Fez, whether cool or not, doesn't count).

Re: 12th Doctor Costume?

We should have a costume reveal in the next few days. Filming begins next week (on Monday, I've heard), and the BBC will want to get ahead of the location filming spoilerhounds.
