New Dr Who star Peter Capaldi, famed for his role as The Thick Of It’s foul-mouthed Malcolm Tucker, became the 12th Doctor during the long-running BBC television series’ Christmas Day special.
And BBC bosses have now released the first picture of Capaldi’s character, in full time lord get-up - no doubt much to the delight of fans and fancy dress aficionados.
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.
Lifelong Dr Who fan 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% rebel time lord.”
Dr Who boss Steven Moffat said the new era meant for a new outfit.
He said: “Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over - Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you.”
Filming for episode one of series eight 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, said: “Peter Capaldi’s Doctor is officially recorded in history today with the unveiling of his new costume. It’s sharp, smart and stylish - The 12th time lord means business.”
