Last week the BBC released a picture of what Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor would wear, and I made a mental note to myself to do a post about it. Then I sort of forgot because real life has been attacking me in various ways lately, but then I remembered again! And before I forget again, here’s a picture of her new look.
Here’s my take on it–I’m okay with the shirt, suspenders, and trenchcoat; those have very Doctor-y feels to them (although I admit the brighter color scheme is uncomfortably reminiscent of the Sixth Doctor and his amazing technicolor dream coat). But what in the name of jelly babies is up with those pants!? Pants like that never look good on anyone. If you want Whittaker to succeed as the Doctor, don’t make her wear pants that look too small!
I am starting to be very skeptical of this new Doctor, y’all. I want to be excited, but then they dress her in that. Granted, fashion has never been the Doctor’s strong point, but still…how hard would it have been to find normal pants for her?
At least we’ll still get Capaldi looking awesome in the Christmas special.
