The miniature Doctor also has high heeled boots – arguably a bit more glamorous, but definitely less practical for running up and down corridors – and a pair of suspenders…
No, these aren’t the undergarments you might have inadvertently glanced at while passing Ann Summers. “Suspenders”, of course, is the American word for “braces”, a mix-up that’s caused a bit of a stir for some British Who fans…
Doctor Who originated in England. In England, "suspenders" means something completely different to what it means in the US. The word you're looking for is "braces".

The 'signature suspenders' caused a raised eyebrow, until I realised this is American Barbie/Dr Who

They're not called suspenders!
They're called braces!

Sadly, no sign yet of Bradley Walsh’s Ken doll…
