Doctor Who: Past And Present Fashion

Doctor Who finally returns to our screens in Autumn 2018, marking the eagerly anticipated debut of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.

While the finer details of the new series are being kept under wraps, here’s what we do know so far…

As Peter Capaldi hands over the keys to the TARDIS, so does showrunner Steven Moffat, who passes the coveted reins to Chris Chibnall. The new series promises a bold new direction, and we can’t wait to see what Chibnall brings to the Whoniverse!

Fans are also in for a treat with the return of a full-fledged ‘TARDIS Team’ in the upcoming series. The Doctor will be joined by Yasmin (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Graham (Bradley Walsh), signalling a departure from the typical format of a single companion accompanying the Doctor on their adventures through time and space.

With the promise of a newly designed TARDIS to boot, fans are scrambling for any new information ahead of the series airing later this year.

And so, whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next Comic Con outfit, or simply to integrate some killer space style into your spring wardrobe (who can blame you?), we’ve put together a collection of standout fashion moments from Doctor Who’s past and present. This one’s for you, dedicated Whovians!

Jodie Whittaker

Jodie Whittaker’s iteration of the infamous Time Lord heralds the first time an actress has played the part, and we couldn’t be more excited to see her in action!

We’re in love with her new outfit, too. With the retro stripes across her top (a nod to the colours in the long scarf worn by Ted Baker’s Doctor), yellow suspenders, dusty blue overcoat and gorgeous earrings, it’s an instantly iconic look.

Draw out Jodie’s retro colours with the Univo U801 frames – a gorgeous touch of Time Lady chic!

Matt Smith

He may have been a time-travelling alien from Gallifrey, but underneath it all, Matt Smith’s Doctor was really just a hipster at heart.

Tweed jacket? Check. Bow tie? Check.

Channel this geek-chic style with some round frames. We reckon these Ray-Ban RX7069 specs are just the ticket. Sculpt your hair into Matt’s distinctive lego style do for the full effect.

David Tennant

Whether he was running away from trouble (or headfirst into it!), David Tennant’s Doctor was a big fan of a classic pinstripe suit teamed with an effortlessly cool pair of Converse trainers.

Follow his lead and wear your best Ten outfit with some aviator sunnies, a lot like those seen on Tennant above. We love these from Ray-Ban:

Jenna Coleman

From humble soap star to Doctor’s companion, Jenna Coleman’s meteoric rise to fame has been matched by her growing style credentials.

Her character, Clara, always looked on point (side note: rumour has it she was cast because she was the only person who could speak faster than Matt Smith!), but we’re more interested in her real-life look.

Nail the ever-popular athleisure trend like Jenna by wearing an oversized jumper with some cropped leggings. Stick to all black for a monochrome vibe, or try some patterned shorts for a fresh summer look.

Complete the look with a pair of round shades to steal Jenna’s style. We love these from Dolce & Gabbana:

Peter Capaldi

The Twelfth Doctor proved that great style has no age limit. Often layering a hoodie under his overcoat, Capaldi’s Doctor also introduced a nifty (albeit divisive amongst fans) new gadget: the Sonic Sunglasses. Because if bow ties are cool, then so are space gadget shades!

Try these Ray-Ban Wayfarers for size:

Karen Gillan

Playing Amelia Pond, a firm favourite with Doctor Who fans, Karen Gillan is definitely our style crush. Shown wearing a pair of wayfarers above (which look suspiciously similar to the Sonic Sunglasses…), the star recently wowed fans in the reboot of cult kids classic Jumanji.

Pearl Mackie

Take tips from the actress who played the Doctor’s most recent companion – the irrepressible Bill Potts. We’re loving the gold accents on the star’s workout gear above.

Just finish off the sports-luxe effect with these gorgeous shades below.
