Halloween is coming! Our friends at HalloweenCostumes have some new Doctor Who items in! This is also a good time to get your cosplay items as there’s more selection 🙂
From the BBC. Despite the “renumbering”, did you notice that Charlotte Moore still calls him 12?:
The Doctor has a new look as Peter Capaldi’s era officially begins. In a picture released today by the BBC, Capaldi can be seen in the costume that will define his time as the Twelfth Time Lord in one of TV’s biggest roles. Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr. Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden.
Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: “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.” While lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat added: “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!”
Filming for episode one of series 8 began earlier this month, after 10.2 million tuned-in on Christmas Day to get their first much-anticipated glimpse of Capaldi’s Doctor. Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, commented: “Peter Capaldi’s Doctor is officially recorded in history today with the unveiling of his new costume. It’s sharp, smart and stylish – The Twelfth Time Lord means business.”
So this is what 12’s costume will look like. Aside from 9, I think this might be the most “plain” costume we’ve seen.
I’m in the Christmas spirit today, so we need some festive pictures 🙂
Oh wait, that’s not really festive is it? Is this better?
No? All right, then. These are my last offering 🙂
Female First is reporting on Matt Smith not understanding women and how he’ll get to keep some toys from his Doctor Days. It’s kind of funny that he says he doesn’t get women, since all the fangirls call him sexy.
Matt Smith has said his lack of understanding women is similar to that of the Time Lord ‘Doctor Who’.
The 31-year-old actor plays the titular role in the long-running sci-fi show – which will celebrate its 50th anniversary later this month – and admitted that he can be as awkward as the doctor around females.
He told the Sunday Express newspaper: “I was always interested in the Doctor not understanding women. I don’t either, really, but he is flummoxed by them, because he doesn’t get it.”
Matt – who will leave the show after the Christmas special later this year – will miss playing the Doctor but revealed he will be keeping some props to help him cope with his exit.
He said: “I will really miss playing him but I know the Christmas farewell episode will be a real belter and I will keep a piece of him with me as I am keeping my original tweedy costume at home along with my sonic screwdriver.”
And with Tenth Doctor David Tennant returning to the show for its celebratory episode ‘The Day of the Doctor’ on November 23, Matt insisted he would also love to reprise his role in the future.
He added: “I’ll always come back if asked to play him in future. Maybe we could do something for the programme’s 60th anniversary and, if I’m still around then, I’ll come back for the 100th anniversary special too.”
