The new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodi Whittaker, arrives sometime this Fall. And the people at the BBC realized that the World Cup final would be a great place to debut the first real teaser for the new season! Unfortunately, the teaser doesn’t show much.
I suppose that’s fine for just being a teaser. We’re teased the Doctor doing stuff, we’re teased her smile, and we see her companions. Perhaps I’m just too eager for actual footage of Whittaker as the Doctor. And I can’t imagine I’m alone.
Still, like most fans, I’ll probably take whatever I can get.
The Doctor Who outfit is a very important part of the character, not least of which because it’s going to be cosplayed like nobody’s business! So we’ve all been eagerly awaiting the fashion choices of the first female Doctor, as played by Jodie Whittaker!
Well here we go!
I don’t like it.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of a female Doctor and Jodie Whittaker in the role. But suspenders over a T-shirt? With those high-waisted pants? Eehhhhhh. I’ve seen some people online mention that it looks like the sort of outfit a 2,000-year-old man with bad fashion sense who suddenly finds himself having to dress as a woman would put together, and I suppose that makes sense. But it could have been more stylish.
I dig the long coat, though.
Of course, I loved Peter Capaldi’s initial look, with the suit, the red insides and the Doc Martens, only for his Doctor who rarely ever wear that outfit. I never liked his weird dotted casual shirt.
So here’s hoping the 13th Doctor gets some options going forward!
Official Friend-of-the-Site Only Leigh is back with a fun little cartoon addressing the craziness of a female Doctor head-on! As usually, it’s funny and just plain fun.
If it needs to be repeated, I’m a huge fan of the choice of Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor. I think it’s great that the show is going with a female Doctor and I’m very much looking forward to her seasons.
Unfortunately, we’ve probably got an entire year of waiting before the new Doctor Who season starts. That Christmas special is not going to have enough Jodie, I bet.
The last of the Comic Con news I have to share is a glimpse at the Christmas special for Doctor Who. It’s Peter Capaldi’s last adventure, and it looks like it’s gonna be a whopper!
Beyond that, the BBC also put together this nifty tribute video for Peter Capaldi’s time as the Doctor. I think, at least at this moment, that Capaldi is my favorite Doctor. Though his seasons aren’t my favorite seasons. Is that weird? I dunno, here’s the tribute video.
This is going to be a super spoiler for Doctor Who, so if you don’t want the Doctor’s new actor to be revealed, don’t watch the clip below and don’t read any further. They announced the new actor today to follow Peter Capaldi in this year’s Christmas special. You can watch the announcement video right here!
The 13th Doctor will be played by Jodie Whittaker, making her the first female incarnation of the Doctor in the show’s history. This isn’t too far-fetched. It has been clearly established that when Time Lords regenerate, they can change sex and race and pretty much everything else. Plus, a very vocal fanbase has been clamoring for a minority Doctor.
Personally, I am very pleased with this choice and excited for the new seasons. Whittaker was great in Attack the Block and everything else I’ve seen her in. I’m sure she’ll be great as the Doctor.
I wonder if they’ll give her a male companion!
