Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman at the “Doctor Who” Premiere

Posted on August 08, 2014

This one goes out to all the nerds in the audience. Are we all breathlessly awaiting August 23rd and the launch of Season 8, not to mention the debut of Peter Capaldi in the role? The answer is yes. At least for right-thinking people.

At first we thought she was kind of over-dressed, but this was for a string of appearances that day and besides, if you’ve got a big Welsh castle behind you with a TARDIS cleverly perched on the roof, then you know you’re gonna be stuck in a lot of long shots and need something to stand out. We like the softly romantic feel of the dress. And the red is something of a signature color for her character.  She looks pretty.

As for him, we kinda love it. The fit is terrible but he’s working that “aging punk” thing that works so ridiculously well for him. If we were his stylist, we would have told him to leave his sunglasses on, because it’ll always look cooler than squinting into the sun and having them hang out of your breast pocket, making you look like an absent-minded professor. Then again, if we were his stylists, we’d have made sure that jacket fit better and probably picked a slightly more interesting t shirt than that. Still, this is a perfect example of how an older man can dress in a casual manner that’s appropriate to his age, but with a little bit of a edge.
