The BBC reveals the look of Matt Smith as Doctor Who, as shooting commences on the fifth 'new' series of the show...
Believe it or not, but filming has begun on the fifth series of the revived Doctor Who, and the first under the stewardship of Steven Moffat. And, no doubt pre-empting fan-taken pictures that would otherwise appear, the BBC has posted a picture of Matt Smith as the Doctor, in his brand new costume.
Eccentricity is clearly key again, given the dickie bow and tweed jacket, and the picture also demonstrates the more conventional clobber that new assistant Karen Gillan will be wearing. The article, which you can find the link for below, quotes Smith as saying, "The scripts are brilliant - I'm excited about the future and all the brilliant adventures I get to go on as the Doctor."
We won't get to see any of Smith's new adventures until next Spring, but expect news of the shape of Mr Moffat's maiden season to start emerging over the coming weeks.
