At first glance it would be easy to believe that David Tennant has somehow been busily growing a luscious mane of brunette locks.
But the star is in fact sporting hair extensions for his upcoming appearance in the Royal Shakespeare Company's Richard II, as the title character, which opens in two weeks.
The 42-year-old Doctor Who star was spotted arriving at the British Film Institute for a special Doctor Who screening, in honour of the show's 50th anniversary, whilst attempting to cover his new locks with a grey baker boy cap on Sunday.
The fixed extensions, which will be worn loose for his performances, clearly could not be removed by the star, so he has been resigned to go out in public with the mane of hair. As a result, his new look has caught people's attention with many taking to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the actor's new look.
