Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who costume was revealed right back at the beginning of the year, but it seems we missed something – the David Bowie influence.
Yes, according to reports, the white button-down shirt was added to the long black coat and Doc Martin look as a tribute to Bowie’s Station to Station album cover.
This of course gave us an excuse to add a Bowie-esque lightning bolt across Mr Capaldi’s face. Thank you PhotoShop.
“He drew inspiration for his Doctor Who look from his ‘scrapbook of ideas’. He thought Bowie was the perfect look,” a source tells the Daily Express, of Capaldi’s involvement in Howard Burden’s costume design.
Capaldi himself has spoken about the thinking behind the look saying, “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.”
