First look at Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who



Fans have had their first look at Jodie Whittaker's new Doctor Who costume and TARDIS.

The costume possesses a Mork & Mindy vibe and a knowing nod to the Fourth Doctor's scarf, which has a nostalgic appeal for fans (myself included) who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s.

Whittaker will be taking over the titular role from current incumbent Peter Capaldi this Christmas. She'll be joined by new companions Graham, Ryan and Yasmin played by actors Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill respectively. Cole joins fellow Doctor Who stars Warwick Davis, David Prowse and Felicity Jones who've appeared in Star Wars.

Chris Chibnall, the creator of Broadchurch, replaces Steven Moffat as series showrunner.

Filming of series 11 is rumoured to begin soon for broadcast in late 2018.
