  • The Doctor will see you now! BBC unveils FIRST LOOK at glam Jodie Whittaker as the new Time Lord... as she struts sultrily away from the TARDIS across a sunlit meadow

(According to Capaldi, that's how he found out the news that his successor would be the show's first woman Doctor!) But when the eleventh season of Doctor Who arrives next year, the new Doctor's threads will indeed get an upgrade. In a way, the clothes the titular Timelord chooses is a first impression of who they are.

Whittaker takes over from the exiting Peter Capaldi, whose last stand (and Whittaker's first) will be a Doctor Who Christmas Special this Christmas.

Detractors were quick to point out that the outfit made Whittaker look silly, but when you look back through the series' 53-year history, it's easy to see that The Doctor was never one to look normal. However, that still leaves the question: Does she have the chops to save the universe with the best of them. Of course, the main reason for regenerations is when the actor playing the Doctor leaves the role. Jodie will take over as the 13th Doctor starting next fall with a brand new season of Doctor Who.

But Whittaker is also rocking her own style, putting a fresh, feminine twist on the 13 outfits that came before.

Jodie, 35, looks edgy in The Doctor's trademark trench coat, sporting an ensemble beneath seemingly inspired by past Doctors Colin Baker and Tom Baker.


However, many fans on social media derisively compared the costume to the outfit worn a fictional character outside of the "Doctor Who" universe: Mork from Ork, played by Robin Williams on the classic sitcom "Mork and Mindy". But that doesn't mean she needs to wear tight tops, short skirts, tall heels, or a coy smile to prove her worth.

"It looks like a bad cross between Robin Williams (particularly "Mork from Ork") with steam punk.", David R. Wickenden of Hoschton, Georgia wrote on Facebook.

However, most reactions appeared positive.
