'Doctor Who' first look shows Jodie Whittaker in costume

'Doctor Who' first look shows Jodie Whittaker in costume

Comic artist Patrick Goddard shared an early drawing he did of the costume, which he shared with the Doctor Who costume designer. Silliness has, more often than not, been the name of the game for this Gallifreyan.

This costume is uniquely her own, a true departure from the modern series' suits in muted colors.

"To be honest I think she looks more like a presenter on Play School or Blue Peter rather than the Doctor", the Progtor Who Podcast tweeted. Maybe I'll give this iteration of Doctor Who a shot when it arrives next year!

"New series. New Doctor". Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor was a fan of suspenders, although some are attributing that touch to another famous alien.

Indeed, that long jacket is very reminiscent of the Tenth Doctor's (#DavidTennant) billowing coat. She has a long jacket (hello, David Tennant); high-waisted trousers (very Patrick Troughten); suspenders (mighty Matt Smith); and a set of stripes across her shirt that could be a subtle tribute to Tom Baker's iconic long scarf.

When her casting was announced in July, Whittaker said it felt "overwhelming, as a feminist" to have the role. Simply put, there is no single right way to the Doctor, because the Doctor is constantly about change.

The first pictures of Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor in Doctor Who has been released.

Until Christmas (or, more likely, autumn 2018), we won't really know who the Thirteenth Doctor is. But the Doctor's journey is only just beginning'.
