BBC Unveils New Jodie Whittaker Doctor Who Merch Ahead Of Comic-Con


We’re still a few months away from seeing Jodie Whittaker make her full debut as the Thirteenth Doctor, but the BBC have now gone ahead and revealed the new Doctor Who merch that will accompany the arrival of the latest incarnation of the Time Lord and be available at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con.

First up, Funko has released two new figures of Thirteen. One’s from their ever-popular POP vinyl figures range (recognizable for their large heads and black eyes) and the other’s for their Rock Candy range (the taller, more detailed model). TITAN also has two variant figures of the new Doctor coming out as well. One’s part of their main range edition and the other is a TITAN Kawaii figure (the one with the anime-like large eyes). Both are 6.5” in height.

Finally, Character Options is releasing a detailed 6.5″ action figure of Whittaker’s Time Lord, too. In the gallery below, you can just about see that it comes with a tiny sonic screwdriver. In fact, it looks like this might be a new model of the gadget, but unfortunately it’s too small to make out.

If you’re lucky enough to be attending SDCC, you can find these figures in the BBC Shop at the BBC AMERICA booth #412, the Titan Entertainment booth #5537 and the Funko booth #5341/5347. For the rest of us, the items will be released in the US and the UK over the next few months.

Last but not least, you’ll also see in the gallery above that cosplayers have been gifted with an official replica of the Thirteenth Doctor’s outfit. Her Universe is debuting the complete costume at SDCC before releasing them at Hot Topic stores from then on. Radio Times’ sources claim that the outfit will be made available in the UK soon, but we don’t have an exact date just yet.

As Doctor Who fever heats up, SDCC will also host a BBC America panel in Hall H on Thursday, July 19th, which is expected to reveal some juicy news about season 11, and hopefully a trailer, too. As always, watch this space for more.
