As one who kept up with Doctor Who from the sidelines, I have observed one thing: what the Doctor is wearing is important. From fezzes to bow-ties and scarves, it all ends up becoming some form of trend within the pop-culture community and that is kinda cool. So what can you expect to see Doctor Who fans wearing at the next convention? Take a gander at Peter Capaldi in the latest costume to find out.
So the next trend is: Doc Martens! How appropriate.
Capaldi spoke in a BBC press release about the reveal 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
Moffat chimed in as well:
New Doctor, new era, and of course new clothes. Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over – Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you!
So it sounds like Capaldi is ready to shove his size 12 Doc Martens up some monster butt! Attire seems completely appropriate for that.
What do you think of the new look? Liking what you are seeing compared to what Capaldi and Moffat have said? Wish the decision had been made to go with a bolo tie? I sure do, but I have no horse in this race. Give you thoughts and ideas about the Doctor’s new look in the comments!
