DOCTOR WHO fans have been given a first glimpse at how Jodie Whittaker will appear in the next series of the show.

The first female Doctor has begun filming for the sci-fi series, and will make her debut in this year’s Christmas special.

She’ll be joined by companions Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, with new episodes coming in Autumn 2018.


New series. New Doctor. New look! #DoctorWho

Whittaker was first seen in a dark hooded coat when she was unveiled as the 13th Doctor.

But her new attire is made up of teal culottes, braces and a striped jumper.

Each Doctor has had a costume that has become synonymous with their time in the Tardis, including Matt Smith’s love of bow ties and Christopher Ecclestone’s leather jacket.

In the classic series, Tom Baker was famous for his scarf and Sylvester McCoy for his question mark attire.
