The 35-year-old actress was cast as the Thirteenth Doctor in the summer, making her the first woman to take control of the TARDIS in the titular role.

The BBC has now released the first image of Jodie in her official outfit which is comprised of teal cropped trousers with yellow braces, as well as a striped jumper and a long trench coat.

Already fans have begun to discuss the look and there appears to be references to previous incarnations of the Time Lord in her outfit.

Donning braces has already been done before, most recently by Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, and the colours of the stripe going across her navy blue T-shirt are the same as the colours included in Fourth Doctor Tom Baker's unforgettable over-sized scarf.

Whilst both Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi and Tenth Doctor David Tennant were both fans of a trench coat.

However, the Thirteenth Doctor gets to have her own feminine fashion by wearing two earrings in her left ear.

The 'Broadchurch' star is set to make her debut in the sci-fi show when the Twelfth Doctor regenerates in this year's Christmas special.

But she won't be seen on screen in her first full series as the iconic time traveller until the end of 2018, but bosses are wasting no time getting to work on her first run as they've gathered the cast for a read-through.

According to Digital Spy, pre-production kicked off this week as new showrunner Chris Chibnall was joined by his executive producers Sam Hoyle and Matt Stevens.

Details of the new series are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being, but it has been announced that Jodie's Doctor will have three companions in the TARDIS this time around.

The brunette beauty will be joined by Bradley Walsh, who will play Graham, Tosin Cole as Ryan and Mandip Gill as Yasmin.

Chibnall has teased that the time-travelling alien will "need those new friends" and he's glad he's managed to bag "three of Britain's brightest talents" for his forthcoming and history-making series.
