It’s defining moment for every actor who takes over as the titular Time Lord in Doctor Who; the big costume reveal. Three weeks into filming for his first year in the series and the BBC have finally released the first publicity image of the actor in his official costume.

Capaldi and costume designer Howard Burden have opted for a sleek, stylish look of half-length frock coat, plain dark trousers, waistcoat and well-polished DMs. The flashes of red velvet in the jacket’s lining evokes the look of third Doctor Jon Pertwee (1970-74) which seems entirely appropriate for an actor of Capaldi’s stature and maturity.  “He has woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics," says Capaldi. "No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.”

Lead writer/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!”

Bow ties, it seems, are no longer cool… 

Doctor Who returns to BBC1 in the Autumn.

Been watching Capaldi in the latest Musketeers programme - think I prefer him in the cardinal outfit!
