The New Doctor: Jodie Whittaker
When Jodie Whittaker was announced as Peter Capaldi’s successor this past summer, the Doctor Who fandom erupted, mostly with joy, at the choice, reveling in the notion of the first ever female Doctor and squashing out the voices of opposition that asserted the character could only be male. In case you missed out on the excitement, take a look at this teaser trailer, and prepare for major goosebumps:
Once the dust settled, many immediately began to wonder: what would the Thirteenth Doctor wear?
It’s always exciting when a new Doctor takes the reins of the TARDIS. New personality, new quirks, new catchphrases, new TARDIS, new sonic screwdriver, and yes, new outfit. It’s a rite of passage for our favorite Time Lord to go through this transition, and let’s face it, the costume is everything.

Fortunately, we don’t have to wait until next month’s Christmas special, which will feature Peter Capaldi’s regeneration, to get a glimpse of Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor. BBC released a first look on the official Doctor Who Twitter page this morning:
A departure from Capaldi’s look for sure, Whittaker’s Doctor comes across as more playful, going off her fashion sense alone, sporting suspenders and Tom Baker-ish stripes. Still, a long jacket complemented by sensible footwear remains the Doctor’s signature, no matter what face he (she!) is wearing. And of course, she’s decked out in TARDIS blue, because no other color would do.
