Peter Capaldi has explained the Doctor’s upcoming costume tweaks and new sonic sunglasses in Series 9.
He said: “In the Christmas special we were in the Antarctic so I thought I’d better put a hoody on and I quite liked it. I thought we’d get some more of those, and started playing around with that. So he’s loosening up a bit more this series, but sometimes he does go back to his more severe look. And there are some specific trouser things that happen for specific reasons. It will become clear to you when you watch the show.”
Speaking about the sunglasses: “I’ve got sonic sunglass, it wasn’t my idea but I like it, I get free Ray-Bans now. I was just wearing shades because it was sunny, and I was Doctor Who and it looked cool.”
On the longer hair: “I always wanted my hair to be longer [on the show] – some people think I’m going for the full Jon Pertwee bouffant… and I may well do that!”
But Capaldi maintains that fans should not trust Twelve: “You must never trust Doctor Who, because his knowledge of the past and the future is comprehensive and deep and not quite human,” he said. “So, in his human form, I think he’s decided – because he knows how dark it can get outside – that he’s going to have a good time. But as always in Doctor Who, no good time goes unpunished!”
