Nevertheless, questions remain. Which former Doctor’s outfit does it most resemble? Should the bow-tie be replaced with a new sartorial accessory? Are Doc Martens cool? And is there perhaps a touch of magic in the air…?
Dappercat – … Love it! I can see influences of the first, third and eighth Doctors but modernised. Very good call.
As Peter Capaldi did on his unveiling, I can just see him holding those coat lapels ala William Hartnell …
Chris Hormann – A bit of 3, a smidge of 1 and thankfully nothing of 6.
Garrett Chandler Gopen – Anyone getting a little Jon Pertwee influence?
The Doctor’s Girl @Jfynboh – he looks like a modern Third Doctor. He looks frankly AWESOME!!!
Tina Corbett – I like it, very clean like Chris’s but still has a Hero coat. got a pertwee and matt feel to.
To accessorise or not to accessorise?
Jorge L De Jesus – Needs something distinctive, like a scarf , a tie, a pendant , something
Brandon Lagasse – He doesn’t require an accessory like a bowtie, his accessory is his eyebrows and that glare.
Bill Hope – I think a black wide brimmed fedora would be awesome with it….
Leah Elizabeth – I love it but someone give the man a pocket watch!
Dan Dubinsky – I wear no tie now. No ties are cool!
heather marsham @rubygates71 – Love it but I can’t help thinking that a snowy white Regency neck tie would set it off perfectly.
Aaron Chevalier – falls flat to me. He needs a scarf, an ascot, a silly hat, a puffy shirt… something.
Jeff Miller – No fez, no bowtie. I like it.
Greg Damron – I like it but would have liked a scarf with it
Alan Groves – An absence of bow ties, fezzes and stetsons is cool! No question marks, scarves or celery! Just the man, with attitude. Even his eyebrows!
Jericho Cain – He looks like a cheap magician.
Joe Coughlin – Is….THIS your card?
Mark John Henning Jr. – he looks like his next trick will be pulling a rabbit out of his hat… lol
Tania Morgan – Looks brilliant. Kind of regal and historic, with a touch of magician. His own personal touch and he’s going to be amazing
Michelle Gentile Ballard – He looks like he’s about to saw a woman in half.
greyladydown – Yay, the Doc is wearing Docs, how appropriate, the all action footwear! This is a look appropriate to Capaldi’s own vintage, so excited about him taking the role. Lots of us long-established fans out here with high hopes for some great classic story lines.
steveD @stiofandafyyd – Peter Capaldi’s costume as the new Doctor is kinda… meh. But I do love that he’s wearing Doc Martens.
Paul Kedrosky @pkedrosky – Not sure how I feel about new Doctor Who in Doc Martens. Wait, I am sure. I don’t like it.
Sarah Rimmer @SarahSRimmer – Love Peter Capaldi’s outfit. I have a feeling Doc Martens will be the new Converse.
Omar Khan @OmarKhan1959 – Peter Capaldi is the only man who could pull off a stylish Doc Martens/cardigan combo.
Josh Smith – He can use these shoes to look under Claras skirts and see if shes wearing underwear…
