David Tennant’s new Doctor Who costume will be on show for the first time at London’s MCM Comic Con this weekend

Following Sunday night’s exciting reveal that David Tennant has returned to the TARDIS, fans will have a chance to get a first look in-person at the new Doctor’s costume at London MCM Comic Con. Many viewers were shocked to see Jodie Whittaker regenerate on screen into David Tennant, who returns for Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary. David last appeared on screen as the Tenth Doctor a decade ago for the 50th Anniversary special.

The Doctor’s costume is a new twist on an old favourite. It consists of a brown and blue check waistcoat and trousers, long blue double breasted overcoat, and grey Converse ‘Chuck 70’ trainers. It will be on show at London’s Excel between 28-30th October, where thousands of fans will come together to celebrate all things pop culture. As well as the Tennant’s outfit, fans will get a glimpse of Catherine Tate’s returning companion Donna Noble’s costume too.

 

Power of the Doctor’s Guardians of the Edge will also be at the ExCel this weekend

And as if all that weren’t enough, other familiar faces from Sunday’s episode will also be there. Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, and David Bradley will all be in attendance at MCM Comic Con, fresh from their TV returns on Sunday. The show’s new Executive Producer, Bad Wolf’s Jane Tranter will also be there, as will former showrunner Steven Moffat. Other guests include Michael Sheen (The Doctor’s Wife), Colin Salmon (Silence in the Library), Jessica Raine (Hide, An Adventure in Space and Time), and Redacted’s Juno Dawson.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, Titan Comics will be running two events during the weekend, including a cosplay meetup, and one on the art of adapting TV shows into comic book form.
