and with the imminent debut of a brand new Doctor,
it’s the perfect opportunity to hop in
the TARDIS and look back at how the Time
Lord has changed over the years.
Hold on there, please, madam,
I need you to do as I say…
This could be a potential crime…
This could be a potential crime…
Because you’re a woman…?
Am I?! Does it suit me?
Every time the Gallifreyan regenerates, we get a fresh star,
interesting companions, and, most importantly,
an all-new wardrobe.
所以 拿起你的音速起子 摆正领结
So grab your sonic screwdriver, straighten your bowtie,
and lace up your Chucks
because this week on Yellow Spandex
we’re diving into The Evolution of the Doctor
Let’s start with the swinging ‘60s
in what we’ll call The Frilly Suit Era
The First Doctor, as portrayed by William Hartnell,
was actually kind of a dick.
You think so?
He was rude, impatient,
and had an air of superiority to him,
which his elegant Edwardian suit matched to a t.
He eventually softened up a bit,
but when Hartnell’s health began to fail in real life,
the producers were forced to come up with one of the most brilliant plot devices ever
to justify their casting change:
We learned that Time Lords have the ability
to reform their physical body in response to injury, trauma, or old age,
so when the First Doctor collapsed
after saving the world from Cybermen,
he was reborn with a more youthful appearance
and whimsical personality.
Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor
was more lighthearted and fun
than the original incarnation.
We’ll see about that!
Here we go again!
I wonder where it will be this time?
Yes. I wonder…
and with his shaggy Beatles hair,
rumpled suit and big baggy plaid trousers,
he looked more like Charlie Chaplin than a cantankerous grandpa.
Troughton quickly grew fed up with the workload of a weekly series,
so he was replaced by John Pertwee
as the aristocratic Third Doctor,
这一切十分简单 我就是他 他也是我
It’s all quite simple. I am he, and he is me.
And we are all together, coo coo ca-choo?
-What?-It’s a song by the Beatles.
Oh? How does it go?
Please be quiet!
who was equal parts frustrated by his exile to Earth,
and enchanted with the authority his new job
as the head of UNIT afforded him,
好吧 好吧 我猜你要查我的通行证
Allright, allright, I suppose you want to see my pass?
I haven’t got one,
and I’m not going to tell you my name, either.
You just tell Brigadier Leftbridge Stewart that I want to see him.
Don’t just stand there arguing with me, man!
Get on with it!
along with the sweet ride and new uniform:
a dandy velvet suit and ruffled cuffs with a puffy shirt
that would make Jerry Seinfeld jealous.
And I don’t know
if the huge lapels and giant hair clued you in or not,
but we’re in the ‘70s now, baby.
and as the new era
of Doctor Who left the black-and-white era behind,
the next generations of Doctor fashion would be defined by
Colors and Question Marks There have
been so many different Doctors throughout the years,
it’s kinda hard to pin down one look that represents the series.
But for a lot of fans,
Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor is the
icon to which all others are compared,
and whenever you see ‘ Doctor Who’ parodied on shows like
‘ The Simpsons’or ‘ Futurama, ’
odds are it’s the Fourth Doctor making a cameo.
His wide-brimmed hat and extremely lengthy scarf,
were based on French nightclub posters,
which suited Baker’s bohemian take on the character.
Doctor, you’re acting like a child!
Well of course I am!
There’s no point to be grown up
if you can’t be childish sometimes.
His aloof performance made the Gallifreyan
truly feel alien for the first time.
and his colorful scarf became the Doctor’s calling card.
The actor served for seven years,
and to this day he still holds the record for longest portrayal of the Doctor.
The producers knew they would have a hard
time filling his boots when the time came to regenerate,
so they made the Fifth Doctor as different as possible.
Well, as different as you can
make one white guy turning into another white guy.
Peter Davison was young, he was sensitive and vulnerable,
Stop please, you’re making me dizzy!
and with his blonde hair and sick chiselled jaw,
he was what passed for a Handsome Man in Britain at the time.
Don’t @ me.
Doctor Five was a big fan of cricket,
and his costume was pretty much the same “ whites ”
that cricketers wear on the pitch.
The uber preppy look was topped off with a panama hat,
and a coat to which the Doctor affixed a stalk
of celery that helps save him from poison gas.
Then what do you do?
I eat the celery!
The reign of the Fifth Doctor is also
where branding concerns began to enter the picture.
You gotta build that brand!
Since it’s hard to trademark and merchandise a
character who doesn’t really have a name,
or the same face for more than seven years.
Like the Fourth Doctor before him,
he incorporated question marks on his shirt collar,
and occasionally rocked a pair of suspenders
adorned with his brand new logo.
Colin Baker’s Sixth doctor
continued with the motif,
although the branding was hard to notice
beneath his garish rainbow coat,
blazing polka-dot cravats, and a cute little cat button!
The Sixth Doctor’s bizarre fashion sense
was justified by the producers as, basically,
“He’s an alien.
Why would an alien has a good taste?”
The Seventh Doctor’s duds were slightly more subdued,
although there’s nothing subtle about Sylvester McCoy’s
sweater covered in zig-zagging question marks,
or his jaunty umbrella with a very on-brand handle.
It is literally a question mark.
Any chance they got!
Any single chance!
Fire their branding department.
Now, before we enter the modern era,
we should shout out two cracks in time.
There’s the Eighth Doctor,
who came about as the result of a 1996 made-for-TV movie,
that was intended to introduce the extremely British show to the U.S. audiences.
Oh my god!
Paul McGann’s retro-styled, romantic Doctor
was literally dressed like a cowboy,
since after his regeneration he grabbed a Wild Bill Hickok costume
that just happened to be at the hospital.
He was canned
after the movie failed to hit it big in America,
but the Eighth Doctor lived on through comics,
books and radio shows for years.
McGann finally returned to the screen in 2013,
where he regenerated into John Hurt’s War Doctor,
a retconned renegade Warrior decked in grizzled leather.
He pretty much just looked like an old football.
Oh, shouldn’t that be black and white with things all over it?
He looked like an old American football.
After the failed movie, the franchise lay dormant for 9 years,
until it was finally revitalized in 2005.
The new series took ‘ Doctor Who’
to new heights of worldwide fame,
but the Doctor’s colorful costumes were seemingly left in the past,
replaced by Modern Drab
Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor has the dubious honor
of having the shortest tenure of any Time Lord, one season,
and the plainest costume.
平头 黑色皮革夹克 v领内搭
The buzz cut, black leather jacket and v-neck combo
was perfectly suited for the Doctor’s angsty personality,
although he softened up towards the end
thanks to the connection he shared with his companion Rose.
The Tenth Doctor, as played by David Tennant,
I’m the Doctor.
I’m a Time Lord.
I’m from the planet Gallifrey.
I’m 903 years old, and I’m
the man who’s gon na save you lives
and the 6 billion people below.
was the height of mid-2000’s geek chic,
with a haphazardly buttoned pinstripe suit,
a brown overcoat he claims was
given to him by Janis Joplin,
I like that coat. Janis Joplin gave me that coat.
and some tortoise-shell “brainy specs”
that made him look rather clever.
Most notably, the Tenth Doctor
was rarely seen without his trademark Chuck Taylors,
even though his alternate selves
were unimpressed with his choice of footwear.
这真酷 我是博士 我全身上下都很酷！
Isn’t it cool? I’m the Doctor and I’m all cool…
Oops! I’m wearing sand shoes!
Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor debuted
with a preppy tweed jacket and trousers,
and after a while, he upgraded his outfit
with a cashmere frock coat to look more formal.
that kinda resembled a cross between the Second Doctor and Willy Wonka.
It was a good look!
这边走不通 掉头走 请走这边！
Strike that. Reverse it. This way please!
One constant throughout Smith’s tenure
was his fixation on a variety of hats,
from fezzes to Stetsons to stovepipes.
But the Eleventh Doctor’s signature accessory has to be his beloved bowties.
Including the bowtie. Yeah,
是的 这很酷 领结很酷
it’s cool. Bowties are cool.
Are you from another planet?
They’re the keystone of his entire wardrobe,
and the last thing he does before he regenerates is to remove it,
and it’s real sad.
不 不 求你了 别换样子！
No, no! Please don’t change!
That allowed Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor
to start fresh with his own identity.
The older Doctor took a stripped-down, back-to-basics approach to his wardrobe,
with dark colors, muted tones,
and a hoodie to contrast with his more flamboyant predecessors,
He even had this one really cool shirt
打着结的 棉的 有星星破洞的内搭
that was knitted and cotton and black with holes in it that looked like stars,
he was really trendy! Trendy old guy.
Although he kept some theatrical flair
with the red lining of his Crombie coat,
and those badass Sonic Shades, that really divided the audience.
-Don’t look at my browser history! -Wow!
-Yeah. I said don’t.
The Twelfth Doctor was mortally wounded in battle with the Cybermen,
and when he finally allowed himself to regenerate
after having a hearts to hearts with the very First doctor,
the resulting Doctor was unlike
anything we’d seen in the 55-year history of the franchise:
The Thirteenth Doctor
The idea of changing the Doctor’s gender originated in the’80s,
when the producers first floated the idea
of replacing the iconic Fourth Doctor with a woman.
Judging from the absolutely
tone-deaf, jokey short they release,
The show wasn’t ready for that responsibility yet,
but after the Doctor’s nemesis the Master
was regenerated into Missy in 2014,
the stage was set to debut an all-new incarnation,
in a decision I can only characterize as “brilliant.”
Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor
might be taking the Time Lord in a completely new direction,
but her colorful wardrobe
is harkening back to the beloved ‘ 80s era,
with baggy blue culottes, a light-colored coat,
and suspenders over a rainbow-striped shirt.
It’s a comforting, familiar throwback
to help ease fans who needed
into the Doctor’s bold new direction.
Only time will tell,
how long Whittaker lasts before the next regeneration,
but with this huge leap forward in representation,
I’ve never been more excited for the future of ‘Doctor Who.’
