Doctor Who has released new promotional shots of Ncuti Gatwa as the 15th Doctor. 

The shots feature Gatwa wearing an appropriately timeless, vintage outfit; composed of a red leather jacket and open striped shirt. Accessorised in silver, the actor points a ringed finger towards the camera. 

In a recent interview with RollingStone UK, Gatwa shared that he was drawn to the outfits worn by Jon Pertwee in his embodiment of the Third Doctor.

 “Lovely velvet jackets and frilly shirts. I feel a connection to him, our Doctors are the only two who dress like sluts.”

Gatwa revealed that his fashion inspiration for the role also came from a Ralph Lauren collection in partnership with Historically Black Colleges in America. “I love those pieces”, the actor said, “they’re so preppy and so Black.”

It seems the upcoming series will feature an ever-changing wardrobe for its 15th Doctor as Gatwa shares that the show had been considering changing outfits on an almost weekly basis. 

“The Doctor has travelled all of time and space; they’re going to have a sick wardrobe.”

The vastness of the new Doctor’s wardrobe has resulted in Twitter being treated to regular releases of promotional shots of Gatwa in vibrant, vintage outfits. 

Doctor Who will return to British television later in the year on BBC One and Disney+.
