“He thinks he’s cool”

Matt Smith is the Eleventh Doctor
The SFX website has a raft of Doctor Who new series goodies this week, kicking off with a discussion between Executive Producer Piers Wenger and costume designer Ray Holman on the look of the Eleventh Doctor.

We’ve already heard from Doctor Who Magazine how Matt Smith’s Doctor refused to take shape until the actor was able to have his input into the various fittings for the Time Lord’s regular attire – and it seems that the scripts have been able to incorporate references to the slightly eccentric look of the Eleventh Doctor.

“I think David Tennant’s Doctor was quite cool, in his Converse and his Jarvis Cocker suit. The thing about Matt is that his Doctor thinks he’s really cool, but everyone else spends the whole series going, ‘What are you wearing?!’

“We didn’t set off with that as an intention, but it’s something that evolved, and that got written into the scripts. I think he’s definitely a Doctor who thinks he’s cool but nobody else does.”

The full discussion at www.sfx.co.uk also features more on the custome, boots, headware, how the look migh be developed on later seasons and even a bit about Amy Pond:

“She’s very sexy, but she’s not overplayed sexy. She’s a bit of a feisty, independent girl, so nothing is clearly from Top Shop or from the high street.”
