Doctor Who First Look: Peter Capaldi in Costume

at . Comments

You've seen him transform into Doctor Who.

You've seen him on set with Jenna Coleman.

But you haven't seen Peter Capaldi in full-on Doctor garb... until now!

BBC America has released the first official promotional photo of Capaldi as the twelfth doctor, giving us a look at the Time Lord's fresh dudes.

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

Peter Capaldi is The Doctor

Adds 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!”

Watch Doctor Who online to see how Matt Smith bid farewell and prepare for Capaldi to take over for good when new episodes air later this year.

Doctor Who Quotes

Once, long ago, a fisherman caught a magic haddock. The haddock offered him three wishes in return for its life. The fisherman said, “I’d like for my son to come home from the war. And a hundred pieces of gold.” The problem is, the magic haddock, like robots, don’t think like people. The fisherman’s son came home from the war, in a coffin. And the king sent a hundred gold pieces in recognition of his heroic death. The fisherman had one wish left. What do you think he wished for? Some people say he should have wished for an infinite series of wishes, but if your city proves anything, it is that granting all your wishes is not a good idea. [...] In fact, the fisherman wished he hadn’t wished the first two wishes.
