The bow tie may have been the preferred fashion choice for Matt Smith's Doctor, but it appears Peter Capaldi's incarnation could be defined by a dark blue Crombie coat.
BBC bosses have released the first picture of Capaldi's character in full Time Lord regalia since he became the 12th Doctor during the BBC show's Christmas Day special.
Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden.
Lifelong Dr Who fan Capaldi said, "He's woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100% rebel Time Lord."
Dame Helen Mirren, Joanna Lumley and Peter Capaldi are among a host of celebrities who have shared their most cherished childhood snaps to front a new drive to recruit more foster carers.

An article penned by Peter Capaldi in 1976 and published in a Dr Who fanzine has appeared online. It comes after Capaldi was named as the star to replace Matt Smith as the Time Lord.
The article describes the opening sequence of Doctor Who and praises the 'artistic integrity and sensitivity' of Bernard Lodge, the man behind five opening titles sequences.
Clearly in awe of Lodge's work, and an avid fan, Capaldi writes: "The wonder of the opening is that it manages to capture in only a very few moments of screen time the atmosphere of Dr. Who."
He adds: "When that blue police box zooms in from a morass of complex light forms, there is no question of its right to be there. So already, within seconds of starting, the title designer has drawn us into the world of Dr. Who."
