The Evolution of the Twelfth Doctor’s Hair

When we were first introduced to the Twelfth Doctor,  his hair was short and in control.  A beautiful silver but nothing spectacular.  I do have to say this photo made me say “oooh, who is THAT?”   

We saw signs of it trying to break free of the Doctor’s head after a battle with the Daleks.

But then something happened.  When the TARDIS went into siege mode, so did the Doctor’s hair, seeming to go two dimensional, like the monsters the Doctor was battling.

But the Doctor saved the day again and his hair relaxed and reemerged, feeling a new sense of power.  

Attempts were made to keep it under control, hair gel, spray. Even wetting it down. Anything to control the mop emerging on top of his head.

 But women saw right through that and his hair noticed the attention it brought to its host.

By the time the Doctor had gone to meditate and prepare for his final battle with Davros, his hair took that opportunity to fully emerge as a new entity unto itself.

Osgood approved of the mass of silver curls upon his head. Trying her best to resist running her fingers through those glorious curls.

So, the Doctor came to an agreement with his hair. He gave it freedom to live its life atop his head, untamed and free, causing women to swoon throughout the cosmos.  

And the Doctor and his hair lived happily ever after. 

“My hair is a nightmare. My hair is visible from space.  It does what it wants…I just let it go, really.”

Oh Peter, if you only knew what your hair does to us.
