Doctor Who's New Doctor Has a New Outfit

Doctor Who sneak peek Jodie Whittaker's costume revealed

1970s sitcom similarities aside, the response to Whittaker's costume does seem overwhelmingly positive so far, with fans praising the costume designer for creating a fresh new look with nods to the show's legacy.

The BBC posted our first look at Jodie Whittaker's costume for her - and womankind's - inaugural Doctor Who voyage.

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.

Released this morning via the Beeb's official Doctor Who Twitter account, the unexpected image quickly gained global attention.

Comic artist Patrick Goddard shared an early drawing he did of the costume, which he shared with the Doctor Who costume designer.

She said: "It's more than an honour to play the Doctor". It kind of reminds us of the Sixth Doctor's colorful ensemble, but this is a lot easier to look at.

The internet was stunned when Jodie Whitaker was announced as the new face of Doctor Who in July, and speculation about the show only increased when the new TARDIS team was disclosed a short while ago.

And damn, Jodie Whittaker looks cool. (According to Capaldi, that's how he found out the news that his successor would be the show's first woman Doctor!) But when the eleventh season of Doctor Who arrives next year, the new Doctor's threads will indeed get an upgrade.

It shows the Doctor dressed in a long coat, striped T-Shirt and high-waisted pants. They are named Graham, Ryan and Yasmin, and are played by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill respectively. The Broadchurch alum is succeeding Peter Capaldi, who will make his final appearance as Twelve in the upcoming Christmas special.
