New Doctor Who: Bow-ties are not cool

Written by Sharon Eberson on .


2014NewWhoCostumeThe new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi, has decided on a look that sets him somewhat apart from predecessor Matt Smith: no bow-tie, no tweed, no fez.


BBC America describes the new look: Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Doc Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden. 


He's woven the future from the cloth of the past," Capaldi said. "Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 percent Rebel Time Lord.” 


Said executive producer Steven Moffat: “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!”
