Doc Marten boots - BBC correction

In an amazing turn of events, the BBC has issued a statement via their official Twitter feed confirming the boots Peter Capaldi wears are not Doc Martens as their original press release stated.

But in a curious Blue Peter-esque way (we were never allowed to see brand names when presenters made fun things out of Corn Flakes packets, or ball point pens) they avoided naming the brand as Loakes, despite the fans having already positively identified them!

It’s not common for the BBC to get involved in such matters, and it never brought itself to correct the mis-information that was issued regarding Matt’s costume when he started.
I guess this is the power of the Twitter generation.
