Hello Sweetie

First Pic of Peter Capaldi on the Set of Doctor Who

Today was Peter Capaldi’s first day filming Doctor Who. “New job, first day, slightly nervous,” said the actor. “Just like the Doctor, I’m emerging from the TARDIS into a whole other world.” More important than the fact that Capaldi was born to play the Doctor and I will eyebrow glare at you if you say otherwise, the picture constitutes our first look at what Twelve’s outfit will be. It looks like the wardrobes of an English professor and a particularly genteel cowboy mated and had a semi-boring baby. But watch chain. Behind the jump you’ll find one more look at Capaldi all suited up, this time on the cover of Doctor Who magazine. Whoops. As has been pointed out, this is just the regeneration outfit. Boy is there egg on my face!

    Isn’t that just him still in 11′s costume?

  • Craig Oxbrow


  • Dave

    And Clara is wearing the same clothes, too, I think.

    Although she DID have time to get a haircut.

  • aerinha23

    Um, that’s Matt’s costume. Must be finishing the regeneration scene!

    I was about to type the same thing.

  • CausticArmadillo

    Yup, minus the bow tie.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    Whoops. Don’t know how I missed that. Edited.

  • Mad Latinist

    You know how you missed that! NO BOWTIE ;)

    Damn! I kinda like that outfit. Echoes of Hartnell…

    Of course they don’t let you hear the audio.
    Doctor: Do you see it? It’s over there.
    Clara: Are you sure that’s it?
    Doctor: Listen you ****ing ****, just shut the **** up and agree with me. Okay?

  • scarecroe

    The color looks different but it’s probably the lighting.

    I had thought they we’re leaning into a “granddaughter” role for Clara earlier in the series, I *really* hope they run with that. Not that you can tell much from this pic (unfortunately). As for his outfit, I have my hopes: :)

  • Cain S. Latrani

    I’m still hoping his outfit is just two big eyebrows glaring at us, all the time.

    I’m surprised to see so many people don’t remember Eleven’s 7b outfit. You are by far not the only one who though this was the new costume, Rebecca, so no need to feel bad, haha.

    I’ve also seen some people freaking out like “Twelve took off the bow tie!!” even though there was a big dramatic scene in the Christmas special when Eleven took it off himself. I’ll grant you some ppl might not have seen much through their tears but still… how can you miss that when you’re hanging out on tumblr and there are a gazillion gifs of that scene floating around?!?? lol

    Anyway, I’m almost sad that Peter will pick a new outfit – he looks great in Eleven’s clothes. Colours really suit him! <3

    Im hoping he adopts a hat ^^
