BBC Studios and Mattel have partnered to release the first ever Doctor Who Barbie doll. It has been created, of course, for the new series of Doctor Who starring Jodie Whittaker, which hit BBC One last Sunday 7th October.

David Wilson Nunn, Creative Director, BBC Studios noted, “This year, we’re introducing an all-new look for Doctor Who. New monsters, new stories, new characters and of course a new Doctor in Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to play the role. Given Barbie’s celebration of women who have made history, as well as iconic characters from some of the best loved movies and shows, we felt it was a great opportunity to work with Mattel to create a doll based on the Thirteenth Doctor.”

The Doctor Who Barbie wears a rainbow-striped t-shirt, paired with cropped trousers and a trench coat. Additional details include Doctor Who braces and lace-up boots. With sonic screwdriver in hand, this collectable Barbie doll is fully posable and a fairly good likeness of her onscreen character.
