Seeing your character represented in cosplay is a time-honored right of passage these days. Of course, when you’re the new Doctor and you’ve been seen for a grand total of one minute, you probably don’t expect to see it so soon.


During her interview on BBC News, Jodie Whittaker was shown a number of photos of people already cosplaying as the thirteenth Doctor. She is delighted and delightful.

Luckily for those fans, a fair amount of the introduction video of the thirteenth Doctor focused in on the outfit so as to better draw out the reveal—making it a handy reference for any dedicated cosplayer.


Whittaker will take over the role from Peter Capaldi after his last outing in the this year’s Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time.” (My colleague James Whitbrook would like to point out, as he does a fair bit in our office chat, that Moffat missed the perfect chance to call this “Twelfth Night.”)
