    Costume isn’t very Smart but is eccentric has a little madness. Prefer it to 9 and 10s boring costumes
    Love the Classic Style Tardis

    Well she’s been dressing as a man for over a thousand years so it’s no surprise the Tardis wardrobe didn’t have any trousers that fit her.

    Not a fan of the outfit sorry.

      The doctor gets ear piercing. That’s new.


      November 9th, 2017 - 9:52pm

      hope she takes the earrings out for the regeneration and adds them when she changes her wardrobe. Having said that it didn,t stop the third doctor acquiring a tattoo and the fifth doctor gaining shoes where there once were boots. Strange thing regeneration.

      I’ve always thought that the sheer amount of energy given off during a regeneration would burn off any clothing and that the new doctors body should start off nude! (But cleverly concealed of course.)


      November 9th, 2017 - 11:58pm

      I couldn,t imagine the likes of patrick troughton and jon pertwee in the nuddy. Though we did have the half naked shower scene in spearhead of course.(With tatt)

      I’ve never thought they should start nude. The powerful Regenerations are only a NuWho thing, with the Classic ones being quick fades. Quick fades with a seering white or gold light is how it should be, not the liquid, energy shooting NuWho ones.

      Sonic earrings….next years christmas stocking filler..

    Oh dear I get the sense of another Colin Baker coat scenario. To be fair that costume has grown on me I wonder if this one will? But for now I am on the fence.

    Love the classic Tardis though

  • Doctor Stu

    Eeeeeee I don’t like the TARDIS, as for the outfit maybe fasten the coat up and it would probably look nice

    • Doctor Stu

      November 9th, 2017 - 7:29pm

      The whole shot reminds me of the Doctor/Rose new earth promo stuff running up to series 2

  • The Temporal Jelly Baby

    November 9th, 2017 - 7:17pm

    I really like the new TARDIS exterior! I’d say it’s a definite improvement upon the last one.

    As for the costume…eh, I’m not sure yet. It’s certainly not a favourite but it’s also not Colin Baker’s disastrous outfit. I like the long coat. Just like in the announcement video, long coats seem to suit Jodie really well. I’m not yet sold on the rest of the outfit though.

  • D0CT0R WH0

    Oh she’s had the Tardis redecorated! Don’t like it.

    • D0CT0R WH0

      November 9th, 2017 - 6:01pm

      That was a joke. I actually think the Tardis looks cool. Don’t like the costume though.

  • The ergon

    Its modern but looks a little retro with the 70s look t shirt. Its a great look for the teenage girl cosplayers. The top half looks a bit Rod, jane and freddy from Rainbow, the long coat i could imagine lalla wards romana wearing. This is just the starter outfit which will no doubt change as the series’ progress. I like it.

    • T.A

      November 9th, 2017 - 5:53pm

      They probably will change it. Like they did with Capaldi a LOT!

  • prototype dalek

    Really not keen on the outfit at all, TARDIS reminds me of the classic era

    • prototype dalek

      November 9th, 2017 - 5:43pm

      Looks like a cross between mork and mindy

    • The ergon

      November 9th, 2017 - 5:47pm

      i thought rainbow with rod, jane and freddy but no, your right it does look like mork now i,ve had chance to take it in.

    • Exterminator

      November 9th, 2017 - 8:56pm

      Mork and Mindy. Lol

  • Moosey

    November 9th, 2017 - 5:31pm

    OMG the outfit looks awful. What on Gallifrey were they thinking?! The look Jodie had in the big reveal video was better.

    • Exterminator

      November 9th, 2017 - 8:55pm

      I agree, I liked that outfit much more.

    • 12th Doctor Fan

      November 10th, 2017 - 1:42pm

      Agreed hate the outfit.

    I love the costume and the new look TARDIS I cant wait to see the inside what changes they have made there.

  • Dalekparadigm2

    November 9th, 2017 - 4:58pm

    TARDIS looks awesome and so reminiscent to the tv movie. The outfit makes me gag. Somebody’s getting cold ankles…

    • The ergon

      November 9th, 2017 - 5:49pm

      Those outdoor shoots it might be slightly impractical, i agree

  • Tyler Prescott

    November 9th, 2017 - 4:54pm

    Love the Tardis, hate the outfit.

  • Sabygo

    Yuck. Take out the suspenders!

  • Weeping Angel

    November 9th, 2017 - 4:39pm

    Why the classic tardis?? Are they bringing that back permanently???

    • The Outcast

      November 9th, 2017 - 11:12pm

      That is the new TARDIS, yeah.

    I like it, it’s practically & traditional with a modern twist.

  • Lorraine

    November 9th, 2017 - 4:19pm

    Well I suppose they are doing all they can to disguise the fact that she is a girl because it’s all sort of neutral. Good job it isn’t the 1960’s or it would be doctor in a mini skirt. Outfit okay though – certainly seen other doctors’ in worse!

  • R1ch1e

    On my God I hate it. Im never watching Doctor Who again!!!!! Only joking. I LOVE IT TO BITS!!!!!

    Tardis looks gorgeous, is it possible to fall in love with a box? Wonder what it will look like inside

  • The Flying Shark

    November 9th, 2017 - 4:02pm

    WTF is that mess? Colin Baker had more colour co-ordination.

    • The ergon

      November 9th, 2017 - 6:47pm

      I doubt it. Colin baker still wins out on bad taste outfits. That was the ultimate trifle.

      November 13th, 2017 - 6:45pm

      Frankly I loved the Colin Baker costume but this no no just no

  • 100,000BC

    Reminds me of a ladies’ version of something Tom Baker’s Doctor would wear (as a friend pointed out, the scarf colours are even represented in the top)

    Also loving the new TARDIS design, other than the light, handles and the sign box at the top I don’t *think* they changed the model that much (I could be wrong), but the colour scheme is brilliant (I much prefer it to the Moffat-era one, which always seemed a little shiny and plasticky to me)

    I’m sorry but I think doctor who’s going downhill from here I mean that outfit is horrendous.
    while I do like the jacket the trousers over the shirt makes her look too short and the braces are not even necessary it just makes it look like it’s throne together in one day in hesitation.
    As for the shirt itself it’s so boring there’s literally nothing to talk about it’s just a black background with some colours and don’t even get me started on the socks

    the shoes are good though

    • The Drums The Never Ending Drum Beat

      November 9th, 2017 - 3:52pm

      Also I forgot to mention about the Tardis it’s literally just a different colour scheme of the 7th / 8th doctors don’t believe me Google it
      I can tell you while there may be some little differences I can almost guarantee you that the BBC are just being lazy at this point

      I agree. I also hope they make the console different.

  • Pats86

    November 9th, 2017 - 3:37pm

    Rubbish, why not Leela’s old outfit? If she took the braces of her pants would fit instead of being half mast!

  • The Other

    November 9th, 2017 - 3:29pm

    Honestly, The TARDIS looks so great it’s distracting me from that Costume ❤
    As for The Costume, hopefully it works better once She’s in action

  • JasonisnotaRobot

    November 9th, 2017 - 3:26pm

    Really like the Tardis, don’t know about the outfit. Nothing about it screams Doctor Who, just looks like something you’d see someone wear out and about. It’ll probably grow on me though

  • Dalek Eye Stalk

    Like the Tardis…not too sure on the Doctor’s outfit. :-\

    Love it!


    November 9th, 2017 - 2:25pm

    I like the lot.

  • The Outcast

    I like the outfit, but I do feel it needs a little something. Like a tie or a cravat or something.

    But now on to the real main event, the TARDIS Police Box. It seems to be the chunky NuWho box, but with alot of classic flavor. The typical white with black text has been inverted so it resembles what it did at some points during the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Doctor’s runs. The St Johns sign is gone (I’m kinda thankful, I’m not to fond of it). The TARDIS seems to have a classic style roof signs with the block-y ends, which is a nice change, akin to the classic era. The phone door seems to open the other way, like on the TV Movie props, a change which is sorta unique, but I’m not fond of it. Speaking of doors, the lock is above the handle again, once again, something from the classic era and I like it. It now has random ridges and a slightly thicker gap between the base and the first row of squares, which I think are nice changes. Can’t really see the light, but it looks ok.

    To be honest, this new TARDIS exterior sorta puts me in mind of the Doctor Who night one, which isn’t a bad thing. Overall, I quite like this TARDIS, much more than the previous, although that might be because it was around for a whole 7 years.

    Liking the TARDIS changeup, nice to see something different there. It’s almost like the 70’s exterior. Not too sure what I think about the costume though.
