Check out the 11th Doctor in a new image

Paging Doctor Who: Get a look at the 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith, and his new companion, Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillian, as revealed on BBC earlier today. (The Daily Guardian has its own pirate images here.)

The new doc will wear what appears to be a tweed jacket, bow tie, rolled up trousers and black boots. More from the BBC:

Filming on the new episodes begins on Monday in Cardiff, with the new series going out in spring 2010.

Smith is taking over from David Tennant, whose last episodes will be shown at the end of the year.

"I feel very privileged and proud to be part of this iconic show," Smith said after arriving on set for his first day of filming. "The scripts are brilliant—I'm excited about the future and all the brilliant adventures I get to go on as the Doctor."

The new Doctor meets his new companion in the first episode of the new season of the show, which is now being run by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat.
