Here’s your first look at Doctor Who’s new Doctor outfit

True story: You’re not a Doctor until you’ve got your Doctor threads. Specifically an eclectic collection of clothing that captures the character of a certain galactic physician who wanders through all of time and space in a blue telephone box that happens to be larger on the inside, just like my face. Oooh, self-snap.

Anyway, each Doctor throughout the 50+ years of Doctor Who has sported clothing which ties into their character. Colin Baker’s sixth Doctor weaponised fashion into a garish walking distraction, Peter Davidson’s fifth Doctor went full Anglophile with his Victorian cricketer ensemble and Peter Capaldi’s departing Doctor ditched his more mature threads from his first season for a simpler and more comfortable combination of hoodies and velvet blazers.

There’s a new Doctor taking over from Capaldi this year however, and with that regeneration comes a wardrobe change. Here’s your first look at Jodie Whitaker suited up and ready to explore every corner of the universe:

I’ll say this: The more I look at this outfit, the more I like it. It’s uniquely Whovian in it’s design, blending odd choices into a combination of garments that will no doubt have a certain visual flow when Whitaker’s Doctor finds herself running away from an angry barrage of Dalek death-lasers. Like other Doctor outfits, it also harkens back to the past: The long coat is reminiscent of David Tennant’s tenth Doctor, but it happens to be designed in a manner that also echoes the Cricker coat worn by Davidson’s Doctor.

The suspenders are peak Matt Smith’s eleventh Doctor, while the print on Whitaker’s shirt is a cheeky nod to the legendary scarf worn by Tom Baker’s fourth incarnation of the character. I’d even hazard a guess that the boots are another nod to Paul McGann’s run as the character, shortly before he regenerated into the War Doctor.

That’s not the only thing that’s changing though! The TARDIS is also getting another slight exterior facelift, this time sporting a darker blue and booting the St. Johns Ambulance logo of Doctors 11 and 12. It’s all great, and I can’t wait to see Whitaker’s take on the character in the latter half of 2018. What could be better than this sneak peek at Whitaker then? All the cool fan art that has popped up in the last few hours (via io9), that’s what:

I’m probably going to be sobbing like a Sontaran that was left behind while the rest of his squad got to go on a suicide mission, when this year’s Christmas special says goodbye to Capaldi.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • I’m also digging it. Didn’t really like it at first, but it grows on you, like a wart.

    • Hammersteyn

      That’s not necessarily a good thing.

      • How dare you! I call mine ‘Roger the Dodger Warty’ and he is like family!

        • Hammersteyn

          You need new family XD

          • Take that BACK!

          • Hammersteyn

            Fine, I’ll leave you with your warts.

          • You are so mean!

          • Hammersteyn

            To warts yes XD

          • Admiral Chief

            Mean towarts Rince?

          • Hammersteyn

            Don’t wart my words

          • Wart did you say!?

          • Admiral Chief

            Wart’s going on here?

        • Admiral Chief

          OHHHHH, it’s a wart….I thought it was your face……my mistake

          • I only look like that when I see YOU!

          • Admiral Chief

            Not sure if compliment or insult, I lolled nontheless

          • XD

          • Hammersteyn

            You look wartisome…

          • Wart do you mean!?

          • Hammersteyn

            I wartn’t know

          • Admiral Chief

            Wart arousal perhaps?


          • Hammersteyn


          • Hammersteyn

            Leave the wartel alone 🙁

          • Admiral Chief

            Wart is your problem?

          • 0_O

  • Those pants remind me over hipster I hate… hard pass from me

  • Tracy Benson

    I hated it at first glance but I can get used to it. Definitely going to cosplay it as well. I like, don’t even have a choice in that

    • Admiral Chief


      Personally I found the jacket quite naais

      • Tracy Benson

        IDGAF, as long as the pants have pockets

        • Admiral Chief

          Bah, pockets are so mainstream

    • Hammersteyn

      Certainly a distinctive look

      • Tracy Benson

        That’s the thing we were chatting about as a team. It’s distinctive, and quite in line with how the Doctors have always dressed. The fashion choices have always been very off the wall

  • Admiral Chief

    LOL this article has more comments than the FFD

    • Admiral Chief

      Blame it on Rince’s warts!

      • You leave Sedrick alone!

        • Admiral Chief

          You behave yourself! Don’t make me whip out the silver nitrate boiiii!!!

      • MonsterCheddar

        Rince is a ginger pisswizard from Hogwarts…

  • OneLargeBanana

    Those pants are amazing! I’m just glad she’s bringing parachute pants back.
