Mad Pony?

Finally! We get our first look at the 11th Doctor's costume.

At first I was a bit meh about the tweed jacket because it didn't seem that different from David Tennant's look, but what with the bow-tie, braces and tattered boots it's definitely grown on me. Basically, demented Geography teacher. And it looks like the first episode (or at least something in the first filming block) will be set somewhere icy. Ooh!

In other news, the new companion's name will be Amy Pond. Which sounds like an anagram, but the best I've seen so far is "Mad Pony." IS IT A CLUE? Actually I reckon it's just an interesting-sounding name to make the fanboys think it's a clue and get all in a froth, just like everyone went bonkers last year when we found out Sarah Jane's new companion was called Rani.

Now, when do we get to see the new TARDIS interior?

You just want to give Amy Pond a *special cuddle.*

Well, as seems to be the case with me, I think I'll have to warm up to Matt a bit ... not doing it for me so far (I guess I just don't like change). I do like the boots, but what are you referring to when you say "braces" ... I think of a metal device designed to straighten teeth and he's clearly not wearing those.

You'd probably call them "suspenders." Over here that means something that keeps women's stockings up. Here "braces" means both the orthodontic device and something to keep your trousers up.

I wondered if that was what you meant, but knew I'd have to ask to be sure. The stockings thing here is garters. Amazing how "English" is actually two separate languages, depending on which side of the pond you're on. But I'm determined ... I'm learning to speak your side, bit by bit.

Boots...Some cloths speak louder than words.

The boots just top off the whole "none of this matches but whatevs" thing he's got going.

Love the boots, braces and bow. Hate the trousers and jacket.

The jacket put me off at first but the more I look at it the whole outfit is so much more eccentric than either Tennant or Eccleston (without having to resort to multicoloured coat fuckery) that I approve all round. It does seem like the clothes of someone who got dressed while still on a bit of a high from regenerating and just chucked a load of stuff together.

hmmm...looks to me as if they're trying ever so slightly too hard to make him not seem quite so young.

I think it's the bow tie that's not working for me, they rest is ok(ish).

Amy looks as if she's going to be "feisty"...looks ok, but I wish I could get the likeness to Sophie Ellis Bexter after she's found the pies out of my head.

Possibly... I did get the impression from the Confidential where Matt Smith was announced that, now that he's ended up with the youngest-ever Doctor, Moffat likes the idea of using that to push the whole "old soul in a young body" thing more than ever.

On the other hand Smith probably had a hand in what he wore (the last two apparently did) and his own dress sense is completely bonkers so it could just be him being a bit odd.

It harks back a bit to Troughton and how could that ever be a bad thing? (Troughton with, Moffatt's made it pretty obvious, a fair bit of Davison thrown in, and I know you agree with me that that's a good thing.)
