Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who outfit was partly inspired by a black-and-white photograph she found via Google Images
"Essentially, I found a photo, and it’s just a Google image," says Whittaker, "and I have no idea what decade it is, but it’s a woman in crop trousers that are slightly big, with a T-shirt, and (suspenders), and with boots, walking and thinking. I just love the androgyny of it, without it being masculine, and I think that’s a really important line to find and quite a difficult one as well.” Whittaker says she presented the photo to Doctor Who's costume designer, Ray Holman, whom she worked with on Broadchurch.
