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

The Doctor will see you now! BBC unveils FIRST LOOK at glam Jodie Whittaker as the new Time Lord... as she struts sultrily away from the TARDIS across a sunlit meadow

Earlier this summer, it was officially announced that Jodie Whittaker would become the 13th Doctor on the long running BBC series Doctor Who, the first woman to ever officially take on the role.

Doctor Who season 11 will premiere in 2018, but you can catch Whittaker's first appearance as the Doctor during this year's Doctor Who Christmas special on December 25. Silliness has, more often than not, been the name of the game for this Gallifreyan.

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. It's more than an honor to play the Doctor. And we kind of love her costume - her trench coat and rainbow shirt give us sort of a Tom Baker vibe. While the length of the coat echos David Tennant the 10th and the color of it, Sylvester McCoy and the 7th. Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor was a fan of suspenders, although some are attributing that touch to another famous alien. While the look seems pretty unique, it does subtly hearken back to previous Doctor outfits. Simply put, there is no single right way to the Doctor, because the Doctor is constantly about change.

What do you think of the new look? Three years later, the writers introduced a plot device that allowed them to swap actors when Hartnell's health deteriorated to the extent that he was forced to leave the show.

Yup, whilst we'll have to wait and see how the new interior will appear, this newly-released picture also includes a look at the Doctor's fabled time machine.
