The Capaldi look - Pertwee love?

Earlier this month the first official picture was released to mark the start of filming on series 8.

I noted at the time how I thought the posing of the shot reminded me a great deal of a still of Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning.

Well, other people have picked up on this - especially since the costume portrait image has been released, and you can see why.

Is this a conscious effort?
I’d love to find out.


  1. This shot of Pertwee/Manning matches better to the Capaldi/Coleman press release photo. The hand pointing is identical. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152148854109647&set=p.10152148854109647&type=1

  2. No someone needs to photoshop in the cape. ;)

  3. Speaking of Katy, I wonder what shs thinks of this?
