Do you need to regenerate your wardrobe for Christmas? Did you ask Santa to bring you spectacular Doctor Who clothing? If you answered ‘yes’, and if you’re female, then you’re in luck.
It’s not long until the Christmas Special of Doctor Who and in the spirit of its release, Hot Topic has designed a new Doctor Who clothing line for women.
The awesome, nine piece collection that has been produced in conjunction with the BBC. Each item is inspired by the various incarnations of the Doctor and as his trusty TARDIS. Cindy Levitt, VP of merchandising and marketing at Hot Topic said:
“Hot Topic is a company full of Whovians, so we are more than excited to debut this amazing ‘Doctor Who’ fashion line for the holidays. From the TARDIS dress to the Fourth Doctor striped cardigan, we know devoted fans will be thrilled with the level of detail and love for the Doctor Who series we put into this beautiful collection.”
Carla Peyton, SVP, Licensing, BBC Worldwide North America expanded on Hot Topic’s Doctor Who collection:
“Doctor Who has become one of the most sought-after merchandising brands in the U.S. and the show continues to draw big ratings on BBC America. Hot Topic has been a leading retail partner for the brand and we’re delighted to announce they will have the exclusive line of fashion.”
The Doctor Who clothing line is available exclusively at Hot Topic stores and on their website. This includes plus size items that are available online. However, their prices are very affordable, starting from only $48. So, if you’re interested in some Doctor Who-inspired threads check out the video and images below!

Let’s face it, Whovians aren’t always the most fashionable of species and while I’m not a fan of every item (or particularly fashion conscious, I might add), some of the clothing is spectacular. Yet, what appeals to me the most Hot Topic’s inclusion of plus sizes and how most of the items look ‘normal’.
Cindy Levitt from Hot Topic expanded on why they included plus sizes in their Doctor Who range:
“When we go to conventions, we see a lot of fans are plus-size, and they’re very vocal about asking for extended sizes… It’s important for us to stand for those women.”
It isn’t until closer inspection that their link to Doctor Who becomes obvious. Additionally, the level of detail that’s present and how it ties into its source of inspiration is staggering.
