Six outfits considered for Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor

Now that we know Peter Capaldi is going to be the new Doctor, we're wondering what his signature wardrobe will be. These photos take us back to the days when Matt Smith's Doctor was still in development—as was his outfit.

Smith's Doctor went through a couple of rumpled looks before settling into the tweed jacket and bow tie—and at least one dark businessman outfit. Steven Moffat has said that the bow tie was Smith's idea, that he was a great admirer of Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor and liked the idea of a Doctor in a bow tie. Moffat says he was skeptical at first, but later admitted that the bow tie was the perfect fit for Smith. In a couple of these shots, Smith looks confused as to how he ended up in those particular clothes.
