Costume designer Ray Holman provides us with exclusive tips on how to dress like the Doctor and her friends Graham, Yaz and Ryan.
Yaz (Mandip Gill), Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Ryan (Tosin Cole) in Rosa (2018). Location recording took place in the heat of South Africa, so Ray Holman designed costumes with this in mind.


Last issue, Christel Dee spoke to Thirteenth Doctor cosplayers at the London Film & Comic Con. Costume designer Ray Holman created the Doctor’s new look, in collaboration with Jodie Whittaker, and read that feature with interest.

“Oh, they were all very good”, he says approvingly.

But when pressed on how accurately they’ve matched his design, he laughs. “Well, some of the details aren’t right”, he admits. “Jodie’s costume looks straightforward but is really quite complicated. The Thirteenth Doctor might be the hardest cosplay ever, because there are so many little details.”

For example, there are the Doctor’s braces. “They’re mustard, not bright yellow”, says Ray. “We paint them to make them dark.” Ray delights in this detail, and hopes we’ll continue to learn new things about the costume. “So I’m not revealing everything about it, and neither is Jodie. I mean, we have revealed quite a lot in recent weeks because people are interested, but I’m still waiting to answer certain questions. It adds to the mystery, and the fun.” Part of that fun is teasing Doctor Who Magazine with an exclusive. “I haven’t told anybody this – apart from Chris [Chibnall], Matt [Strevens] and Jodie. But I decided that because Jodie’s from Yorkshire the fabrics for her coat and trousers should be from there – from two separate mills in Huddersfield.
