The First Female Doctor Who's Outfit, in All Its Quirky Glory

Doctor Who sneak peek Jodie Whittaker's costume revealed

The BBC has posted on social media the first official photo of the first female Doctor Who.

The image gained plenty of reactions on the Doctor Who Facebook page and Twitter, with some decrying it as ugly and ridiculous, while others thought it represented the character well. Others have pointed out the clothing decisions are nearly anti-fashion, which makes it timeless. A nice coat is a Doctor Who must these days. In-story, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate after being killed, coming back with a new body. I mean, traversing around the universe does often include running in the Doctor Who world, I'd hate to see her stuck in heels.

She said: "It's more than an honour to play the Doctor". More anorak-like than the stiff, tweedy greatcoats we've seen on several Doctors past, Whittaker's topper features a Fifth Doctor-reminiscent light tan exterior and a dark navy lining trimmed with slimmer versions of the mustard, orange and teal stripes.




Already fans have begun to discuss the look and there appears to be references to previous incarnations of the Time Lord in her outfit.

Whittaker will make her debut in the Christmas special airing next month on Space.

The new picture also confirms an updated exterior for the TARDIS - itself a throwback to classic Doctor Who looks for the time machine. What do you think of the new Doctor's get-up (I'm admittedly torn on the suspenders, but I'm willing to set aside those misgivings for the time being)? She deserves a chance to shine, and to show every one of her detractors that she can be just as great, if not better, than any Doctor that has come before.
