New Doctor, new outfit

A first look at the Thirteenth Doctor in costume and yes, she has a big long coat that will flap when running. That’s what really matters. Also statement earrings, a somewhat Mork And Mindy rainbow shirt and braces combo, and a slightly 80s vibe all round. I imagine it will vary episode to episode, especially after Twelve had that flashy coat he hardly ever wore.


Just a few weeks until the Christmas special... and hopefully a trailer to follow, though probbaly not a big one as the series returns in the autumn.

In the meantime, there is already fanart from comics creators and other artists.

So, among other things, a revival of her 2009 thread taking entire game settings and turning them into Doctor Who adventure hooks, in this case hitting Malcolm Craig’s Cold City.

The Fibreglass Saucer Invasion

Fifty years ago tonight, southern England was invaded by flying saucers! Made of fibreglass and flour.
“We thought the government should have some sort of plan if aliens did land. So we gave them a chance to try out whatever plan they had - but they didn’t have one.”
Chris Southall, one of the masterminds of the hoax.
David Clarke, media law expert at Sheffield Hallam University and a consultant and curator for the National Archives UFO project, believes the response to the hoax was flawed.
“One of the saucers when they actually drilled into it, because it was full of this compacted, sort of papier-maché mess, actually exploded and showered the police officers with this stuff. If it had been some kind of radiation hazard, how would they have dealt with that? It would have been a disaster area. And what did they do? Just washed it down the drains.”
This is the kind of thing that gets you thrown out of UNIT.
