So the new Doctor returns to our TV screens on August 23rd, and we all know that he’s rocking the punk rock look with boots, heavy coat and red lining but according to headwriter Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi had a lot of personal input into his final costume. In an interview with SFX magazine Moffat said "He wanted to be quite stark. Stark and skinny. A stick-insect sort of thing. Clara actually calls him a grey-haired stick insect at one point. "We had some hilarious pictures of Peter just dressing up. It was all coming from him because he's really into his clothes. I didn't feel qualified to go and chat too much about it. "Certainly the costume didn't go anywhere until I shut up. The thing I've learned about showrunning is you need to know the bits you're bad at!" Moffat did admit that he had to offer some advice as he doesn’t want any clothes that would require a script explanation. “I don't want people saying 'But why are you dressed as a circus clown?' I want him to walk into a pub, a restaurant, a space conference, an army base and nobody stares at him." He also mentioned that we’ll get to see the Twelfth Doctor in a variety of outfits this series. "He's got his basic outfit but he's in a spacesuit in one of them, and he's a caretaker in another one and then he's all dressed up in a later episode. He does vary it a bit. "And he mixes up the basic costume, hugely. We've tended to see the white shirt version in public but actually the one I like best is when he wears the jumper under his coat. I think he looks like a submarine commander, like an old sailor or something. It makes him all rugged and handsome!" The feature length premiere episode “Deep Breath” airs on BBC One on August 23 with a limited cinema release. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
