New Doctor Who Matt Smith has finally been spotted in his new costume. It’s a more tweedy Doctor costume but I don’t think it’s a huge departure from Tennant’s Doctor.
One thing I’m certainly sad to see go is the Doctor’s iconic use of Converse shoes.
From the Telegraph article:
The new bookish style marks a change in sartorial direction for the Doctor after David Tennant’s sharp suits and baseball boots.
Smith’s old-fashioned look – complemented by black boots and rolled-up trouser legs – has echoes of Patrick Troughton, who wore a floppy bow tie when he played the second Doctor in the late 1960s.
Accompanying the time traveler on his latest adventures is new companion Amy Pond, played by flame-haired Scottish actress Karen Gillan.
Well, I like the new costime. And I really like Karen Gillian. I just hope I like Matt Smith.
