The BBC has released the first picture of Matt Smith as the new Doctor, and I’m getting weird “Crossfire” flashbacks.
The newly reincarnated Doctor’s new look will consist of “tweed jacket, bow tie, rolled up trousers and black boots.”
OK, fair enough I suppose. Still a bit odd, very British, and slightly apart from humanity. I get that, I do. But it’s not essentially different from most Doctorwear, is it? Whatever form he’s in, he tends to dress like a professor. Admittedly a very odd or eccentric one at times, but none of the Doctors would look out of place wandering around the halls of higher education in a fog of tenure.
I say the Doctor needs to reflect more of the UK. Where’s the docks worker? The politician? The indie artist with the three dozen piercings and the facial tattoos? The drag queen? Where’s the Time Lord soccer hooligan, who travels back through time to correct bad calls and gently guide close games and ultimately save humanity?
Let’s see some diversity, BBC.
