Hide - costume portrait

Today sees the release of the promotional stills for the next episode, Hide.

This was the first episode to be filmed with Jenna-Louise Colman back in June last year, and at the time we got the first official glimpse of The Doctor’s new costume.

Now the new stills are have a much better look at this combination.

He is wearing the brown bow tie he first wore in The Rings Of Akhaten.

The shirt is new - and is in a blueish grey stripe.

The now favourite grey waistcoat is on show again, and like The Rings Of Akhaten, is without the double fob chain.

Same old G-Star RAW black jeans again, with the new purple brogue boots.

As an aside I’m not too impressed with this photo. It has been crudely cut out and I swear part of his right boot is missing - if it isn’t, it looks bloody odd!

Also released with this image is a picture of Matt in the full Tenth Doctor’s pumpkin orange space suit, though from what I can see the SB6 patches are not present and there are no scars from their removal. It appears to be a recreated costume rather than a re-ue of an existing, unless anyone can think of where this version was seen before.

  1. Hey, steve, long-time reader, first time... question-posing individual. I've been wondering this for a long time, but always expected i would eventually figure it out on my own, but haven't. Maybe it's stupid, or I'm missing something, but what is that thing that so often appears to be portruding from the doctor's right trouser leg? It can't be seen in this picture here, but in the photo of him leaning up against the motorcycle, as well as the photo of him in his shirtsleeves and mismatching braces and bow tie from "A Town Called Mercy," it can be seen very clearly. Is it just his sock? because, if so, it's strangely puffy. I'm not sure if it's something you folks across the pond do with your trousers that I'm unaware of, but it's simply been bugging me for quite some time.

    1. I'd guess that they're thermos/long underwear. A Town Called Mercy was filmed in January, so it's not quite as warm as it looks. If you look at some of the early Behind The Scenes videos you can see Matt showing his off.

  2. Interesting thing, looking through other promo pictures from the episode, he seems to wear the Series 6 boots. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-hgIUaS_Ixk8/UWa0Ql3kvGI/AAAAAAAAc-Q/0SzgNJuH5IE/s1600/4021989-high-doctor-who-series-7b.jpg

    1. Interesting.

      What I will say is that this is a TV show. This was the first episode to be shot for series 7 part 2, so I wonder if the purple boots weren't ready for filming.
      Since they are rarely on screen, they probably carried on with the black until the purple were available.

      Good spot though.

      As an aside, they reissued a still from Cold War as part of the Hide set, with the black boots.
      I didn't include it here as I considered it erroneous - maybe it's right after all!

  3. I must say that I like this new outfit of his more than the last one. Except for the glasses; I hoped I would never see him wear those awful things again. However, after your post about them I came to like them. I hadn't realised that they had been Amy's. Being a sentimental souvenir of sorts they are far more acceptable now. :o)

  4. After watching Hide yesterday, I do think it is the same space suit, where the SB6 round patch is located there was a strange circular "dirt splotch" weathered there.

    1. His latest costume is almost entirely custom made, so you won't find it off the shelf :(

      Some people have found coats that with some minor adaptions have worked out pretty well.

      Best of luck!

  7. Hello, I have recently been looking into setting myself up with a series 7 part 2 costume, and found myself here. Two questions, let me make it clear that I am willing to sew my own clothes and dish out some money, so my first question: What is, and where did you get, the fabric you used for the frock, and would you be willing to provide a pattern, or don't you release that sort of thing? The second: what company made the new boots, I have found a few look-a-likes, but none of them have the two tone aspect, which I love...Anyway, thanks in advance for any help...
