In Which Captain Harkness Dresses Like Captain Reynolds

I recently finished series three of the new Doctor Who.  I met The Master for the first time.  He has some issues, and I look forward to learning more of his stories.  Anyways.  I couldn't help but notice that in Utopia and The Sound of Drums, my dear Captain Jack Harkness was dressed quite a bit like another favorite Captain of mine - Malcolm Reynolds.  The button down shirt, the suspenders, and the cut of the pants all resemble the finest in space Western attire.  Captain Jack just needs a brown coat.  Maybe he should raid the Tenth Doctor's closet sometime.

For no good reason (other than procrastination enabling), I gathered some proof.  It's Captain Tightpants-esque, right?  Or am I just seeing Firefly everywhere?









Doctor Who screencaps from Sonic Biro.

No, you don't want to know how many screencaps I looked at to find the right images.
Yes, I sometimes go to extreme lengths to avoid writing.
