There are five or six of us involved in that process - I was involved. Actually I went to a costume fitting this very morning for next year, which was very interesting!Smith also added that:
I've just heard, basically, 'Tell him he can't have a hat unless it's written down that he has a hat!'. So let's see. There's going to be a whole back and forth now.
I've always said that I think it will evolve but I'm very pleased that the costume feels it has an element of the professor.[Digital Spy]
But just practically, we film in November and it's freezing! And just a tweed jacket can get a bit cold, so who knows...
I'm thinking the fitting is not about an entirely new costume but rather perhaps a variation of it, like when David Tennant 's Tenth Doctor started wearing a blue suit. Or, most likely, it could be for a new coat. I do remember Smith previously mentioning that he'd like to have one for his Doctor.
Anyone liking the idea of Doctor Eleven possibly having an entirely new outfit?
