The first pictures of Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor in Doctor Who has been released. The striped shirt and its coloring call to mind Tom Baker's iconic scarf while the mashup of colors could be an homage to Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor. It's a Doctor Who tradition! It's not the most over-the-top costume in the history of Doctor Who, but it is one that is still in the vein of many other costumes over the years.
But does the Thirteenth Doctor's outfit hold any clues about the future of her tenure?
I honestly can't stop staring at the photo: She looks like she's about to step out of whatever magical hilltop she's on and into my office, hopefully to become my new best friend.
Logistically, though, we do gotta say that the jacket/robe/whatever that is looks like it'll probably fall off anytime she runs more than a couple of seconds.
She said: "It's more than an honour to play the Doctor".
Whittaker's costume gives us a lot to ponder.
Check out Whittaker's new look below.
Jodie Whittaker's costume as the 13th Doctor contains a few shout-outs to the past. Similarly, the long coat was a signature piece of David Tennant's version of the character, and Whittaker's Doctor honors that with elegance and panache. Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill have been cast as Graham, Ryan, and Yasmin, respectively.
Doctor Who season 11 will premiere in 2018, but you can catch Whittaker's first appearance as the Doctor during this year's Doctor Who Christmas special on December 25.
