Time­less fash­ion

New Doc­tor Who Jodie’s Dalek-ta­ble style choice

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY NI­COLA METHVEN TV Edi­tor ni­cola.methven@mir­ror.co.uk

JODIE Whit­taker shows off this sea­son’s Time Lord look as she steps from the Tardis in her Doc­tor Who out­fit for the first time.

Stylists have teamed the for­ward­think­ing move to put the first fe­male in the role with a nod to the gear worn by the 12 males who came be­fore her.

The rain­bow top, braces, boots and baggy trousers are vin­tage Who, re­gen­er­at­ing in a time loop fash­ion con­tin­uum that leaves the Daleks for dead and look­ing so last mil­len­nium.

Sylvester Mccoy wore red braces but Jodie’s brown ones are closer to Pa­trick Troughton’s.

Her swishy jacket echoes David Ten­nant’s trench coat, her boots ref­er­ence Matt Smith’s util­i­tar­ian footwear and the rain­bow stripes across her top match Tom Baker’s fa­mous scarf – and Colin Baker’s patch­work coat.


But Jodie, 35, has ended up with a grungy, fes­ti­val vibe all of her own, thanks to her ear jew­ellery.

At the un­veil­ing yes­ter­day, all the BBC said was: “New se­ries. New Doc­tor. New look.”

Fans were di­vided. One said: “At least she doesn’t have a veg­etable strapped to her chest,” re­fer­ring to Peter Dav­i­son’s cel­ery stick dis­as­ter. But many ap­proved of the Down­ton Abbey star’s new cos­tume – cre­ated un­der the di­rec­tion of Who boss Chris Chib­nall – de­scrib­ing it as “quirky”, “amaz­ing”, “gen­der neu­tral”, “cute” and “a great out­fit”.

Some fans were up­set by tweaks to the po­lice box, which has un­der­gone changes to its shape and sig­nage.

But hope­fully they won’t stop Jodie tak­ing off in her de­but as the 13th Doc­tor in the show’s 54-year his­tory – when she re­gen­er­ates from Peter Ca­paldi’s ver­sion on Christ­mas Day.
