Stephanie Schkicker says she thinks the costume is “almost as weird” as the Sixth Doctor’s ensemble. “I wonder what it say about her personality? Maybe that she remembers how much she used to love suspenders during her 11th incarnation.”
But if there’s one thing everyone seems to be mentioning it’s just how much the costume reminds them of the clothing worn by another TV space traveller.
1970s sitcom similarities aside, the response to Whittaker’s costume does seem overwhelmingly positive so far, with fans praising the costume designer for creating a fresh new look with nods to the show’s legacy.
The costume designer knew exactly what to do. Nods to previous Doctors, while entirely fresh and interesting. #DoctorWho#13thDoctor
