Entertainment Weekly presents a first look at Capaldi in the first episode of season 8 – Deep Breath. He is shown in ragged clothes alongside of Coleman. Fans speculate that this is either a disguise or the fore-runner to what will eventually become the Doctor’s permanent costume. Of the premier, Moffat says:
It’s a big introduction—he’s the new Doctor. There’s no point pretending that it’s not the most interesting, dynamic thing that you’ve got to sell in that first episode. It’s going to be about ‘What’s he like? How’s he different?’ I suppose it feels a bit like a character piece, but there’s plenty of action and nonsense and jeopardy, as there ever is in Doctor Who.
