Doctor Who's New Doctor Has a New Outfit

Doctor Who's New Doctor Has a New Outfit

The BBC has revealed the very first image of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor on the long-running BBC series Doctor Who. The Broadchurch alum is succeeding Peter Capaldi, who will make his final appearance as Twelve in the upcoming Christmas special.

The BBC has now released the first image of Jodie in her official outfit which is comprised of teal cropped pants with yellow braces, as well as a striped jumper and a long trench coat.

However, many fans on social media derisively compared the costume to the outfit worn a fictional character outside of the "Doctor Who" universe: Mork from Ork, played by Robin Williams on the classic sitcom "Mork and Mindy". I also love that she's got so many other hints of previous incarnations in this outfit.

Stripes on the sweater point to those on the striped scarf won by Tom Baker's Doctor, while the suspenders pay homage to the 11th Doctor Matt Smith.

Check out the first picture of Jodie Whittaker in character as The Doctor below.

Initially, Doctors were said to only have 13 possible regeneratons - meaning Whittaker would be the last.

Addressing the historic nature of her casting, she added: "As a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, I want to tell the fans not to be scared by my gender". It seems to refer back to the days of Colin Baker and Peter Davison's Doctor more than, say, the much more recent John Hurt or Peter Capaldi.

Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill will also appear in the new series, which will air in 2018. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: "hope".

The BBC released an image of Jodie Whittaker in costume as the Thirteen Doctor today.
