Now that we’ve seen what Twelvy is going to look like, if you’re like me you’re already imagining how he’s going to look alongside…

Here it is, what Dr Capaldi will be wearing when he returns to our screens in August!
Not sure about it, initial reaction is that it’s a bit stripped down, was expecting something a bit more Old School. Looks a bit too “designed” and not at all sure about the “Charles Saatchi” buttoned-up-shirt-with-no-tie look but, if nothing else, you can tell that Capaldi was a Glasgow Art Student! Love that he’s doing The Pertwee Point pose though!
And I hope to hell that’s a waistcoat and not a cardi!
It’s a sort of Sci-Fi Teddyboy look and check those Doc Martens – a “durty big perra bits” as they say in Glasgow, “fur gein’ aw thae monsters a bootin’ in the baws”!
A very Glasgow School of Art “don’t mess wi` me” kind of look, which bodes rather well for the Capaldi Doctor’s character methinks!
I give the new look a 6.5 out of 10
Love the idea of a Steampunk Tardis and hopefully it won’t be too far in the future before we finally get one in the show for real. In the meantime there’s a cracking design by Wonderwig over at DeviantArt…
Best bit about this, apart from the whole Wood`n`Brass aesthetic [and the Gallifreyan rugs!] has to be the Idris glass statue in the centre of the console. That would be CG if it was in the show and I love the idea of it being an interface, allowing the the Doctor to talk to his Sexy Old Girl!
And so it begins!
Twelfth body, fourteenth incarnation, thirteenth regeneration. Okay?
So, moving on now…
Can only imagine how Capaldi is feeling now that he’s finally started on his journey as Twelvy. He must be like a kid in a sweetshop at Christmas with his Birthday around the corner and a hot date lined up for afters. Good luck to him! I think he’ll make a fantastic Doctor and I hope they keep the line up as just him and Jenna. I like the whole older Doctor, younger companion vibe, haven’t had that since Eccles.
Next up is all the kerfuffle over what he’s going to wear – put the Who fashion police on standby!
