It's been four months since Jodie Whittaker was announced as the new star of Doctor Who, and the BBC have now released the first look at their Thirteenth Doctor in costume.

The outfit seems to reference some of the Time Lord's previous incarnations, from the flowing overcoat to the suspenders to the rainbow stripe. It's a huge difference to the dark hooded coat she wore in the video announcing her casting.

Fans have also noticed that there have been some changes to the exterior of the TARDIS, pictured in the background, most noticeably to the placard on the door.

Whittaker will make her debut as the Doctor in next month's Doctor Who Christmas special, during which Peter Capaldi bids farewell to the role.

She'll be joined the upcoming 11th season by new companions Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK) as Graham, Tosin Cole (Hollyoaks) as Ryan, and Mandip Gill (Hollyoaks) as Yasmin. At that time Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) will succeed Steven Moffat as head writer and executive producer.

The new season of Doctor Who is expected to debut in fall 2018.
