It’s been reported that Whittaker, who previously starred in procedural drama Broadchurch and sci-fi comedy Attack the Block, has already begun filming.

She is the first female Doctor in the history of this enduring television series and will take over from Peter Capaldi. Her Time Lord will debut in the Doctor Who Christmas Special later this year.

What do we think? Well… We like her look! It’s fun and, more importantly, it looks pretty comfortable.

Many fans have pointed out that the ensemble also incorporates elements from previous Doctors, such as the rainbow stripes on her jumper, which is a nod to Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor’s multi-coloured scarf.

Another example is her oversized coat, which is a clear reference to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor.

We can’t wait to see her in action!

Fans can catch the Doctor Who Christmas Special: Twice Upon A Time this Christmas, when it premieres on BBC First (StarHub ch 522) and BBC Player, express from the UK telecast. In Singapore and Malaysia, BBC Player is available as an app for both Apple and Android users, and on
