The other day the BBC unveiled what is to be Peter Capaldi’s costume for the upcoming series of Doctor Who which is slated to air this coming autumn. My first thoughts were along the lines of this is rather nice, a nice little throw back homage in the coat to the 3rd Doctor, Jon Pertwee, as with the baggier lower riding pants to the 4th Doctor, Tom Baker. The whole costume as they had stated in previous tweets and even press releases was that it would mix the past and the future in a way that is quite seamless. My only complaint is that the Doc Martens are not the most practical of shoe choices for running and it would appear that David Tennant is the only one who has gotten it right so far.
