First official photo of the new 'Doctor Who' Jodie Whittaker

Share

We now have our first official Jodie Whittaker photo released for Doctor Who season 11, and with that, we have a sense of what the new Doctor could look like.

Whittaker is succeeding Peter Capaldi, who is set to make his final appearance as Twelve in this December's Christmas special. Wearing a long coat, big pants and braces, it's our first look at her incarnation of the Time Lord, now Time Lady's costume. These are paired with a gray trench coat, brown boots, blue striped socks and an array of delicate earrings.

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 love that they didn't doll her up, she looks stunning, but she also looks strong.

But Whittaker is also rocking her own style, putting a fresh, feminine twist on the 13 outfits that came before.

Details of the new series are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being, but it has been announced that Jodie's Doctor will have three companions in the TARDIS this time around.

With so much nods to her previous incarnations, Whittaker's Doctor is certainly one that remembers where she came from.

She told fans not to be "scared" by her gender. Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill have been cast as Graham, Ryan, and Yasmin, respectively.

The Broadchurch and Attack the Block star will be the 13 Doctor - and the first woman - since the series began in 1963.
