FIRST LOOK: Here’s Jodie Whittaker in full Doctor Who costume with the TARDIS

November 9th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So we all know that on Christmas Day we will see the end of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor in hit series Doctor Who and the beginning of a very new era as Jodie Whittaker takes over the TARDIS and prepares to travel space and time…

And today we get our first look at the actress in her full attire form the series with her new TARDIS behind her:

The new look, courtesy of  the BBC, features yellow braces, a stripy top and a long trench coat and we didn’t like it at first but honestly, it’s growing on us.

The 13th Doctor is the first time an actress has stepped into the role and has been the source of controversy so far, but honestly we’re looking forward to see how the show changes with her taking the controls of the universe’s most uncouth ship.

The outfit has us looking at comparisons from the previous 12 Doctors including Matt Smith’s braces, Tom Baker’s stripes, Patrick Thoughton’s high waistband and the png coat of, well, most of the Doctors.

But, we also see a lot of Mork from Ork in there as worn by Robin Williams in Mork and Mindy. Tell us you don’t see it:

Anyway, the look is suitably off-the-wall and we’re looking forward to seeing how see carried it off starting on Christmas.

Let us know what you all think of the look…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
