Costume Revealed for Jodie Whittaker, Plus New Look TARDIS

We’ve been expecting an announcement about the Thirteenth Doctor’s outfit for a while now… and it’s finally here.
Take a look:

Many are pointing out the fact it looks quite a bit like one of Mork’s regular costumes from the 1970s/80s show, Mork and Mindy.
It should come as no surprise that her outfit is proving nearly as divisive as Whittaker’s appointment as the Time Lord. Or Lady. Or whatever.
Aside from what she’s wearing, we can also see a new-look TARDIS exterior – again, something we were expecting as incoming showrunner, Chris Chibnall looks to be changing as much as possible. It’s pretty likely a new TARDIS interior will be unveiled soon too.
This TARDIS exterior is a darker blue than the one we’ve got used to since 2010, and also takes away the St. John’s Ambulance logo from the front. The “PULL TO OPEN” sign is also white lettering against a black background.
With this announcement, we expect filming for Series 11 to begin imminently.
Jodie will debut as the Thirteenth Doctor at Christmas, although a full series won’t be screened until Autumn 2018.
So what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Either way, let’s stay civil, eh? One of my favourite things about the Doctor Who fandom is how it reflects the ideals of the main character, being kind and respectful, and if anyone says they don’t like something, they’re called a very rude word. Yep, kind and respectful.
