Donna Noble from Doctor Who (2023)

Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) is a character in Doctor Who. She was a former companion of the 10th doctor. Sassy and defiant, Donna was his best friend. After absorbing the meta crisis, she became DoctorDonna, a human with the mind of a Time Lord. Yet knowing this would kill her, the Doctor erased her memories of their adventures. Later, the 14th doctor meets Donna again, along with her new husband and daughter, Rose. In passing some of the meta crisis onto her daughter, she’s able to survive and befriend the Doctor again. Now they’re traveling together like old times.

The 14th Doctor

The 14th Doctor is the current iteration of the Doctor. When the 13th Doctor regenerated at Durdle Door, the next incarnation took on a familiar face – aka David Tennant, who previously portrayed the 10th Doctor. Both fans and the Time Lord alike were baffled. The three episode special for the 60th anniversary features the 14th Doctor and another familiar face – Donna Noble, a former companion of the 10th doctor. Ncuti Gatwa will portray the 15th Doctor, but as Riversong says – spoilers!

Anne Lister from Gentleman Jack

Anne Lister from Gentleman Jack

Anne Lister was a very real person whose life caught the eye of Sally Wainwright. A lifelong learner now known as one of history’s more openly queer figures, Lister is an LGBTQIA icon whose life has been dramatized for the show¬†Gentleman Jack where she is played to perfection by Suranne Jones.

Lister’s style is very severe. She wears her hair curled up in small buns and often wears a top hat. A white shirt with a strong ruffle wears well under a short, fitted jacket and fitted skirt. Black button boots and a black cane round out the look of a woman who brooks no nonsense and knows her own mind well enough to follow it regardless of what others may say.

Arthur Pendragon from Merlin

Arthur Pendragon from Merlin

Whenever I think of Arthur, I can just imagine him calling for “Meeeerlin!” in a peeved, pompous voice. Bradley James brought a youthful incarnation of the once and future king of Camelot to life on British television screens (and various streaming services around the world), making him all the more relatable to young viewers. Arthur starts off as an arrogant, self-absorbed “prat,” according to his totally-not-magical manservant Merlin, but over the course of the series, he develops into a majestic ruler and responsible leader.

Malcolm Tucker from In The Loop

Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) is the foul-mouthed and hilarious protagonist of the British series The Thick of It and the 2009 film In the Loop. His clothing style is the basic business look: suit and tie, button up dress shirt, black shoes, black belt. The rest of the character is about getting overly creative with your insults.

Detectorists

In Detectorists, Andy Stone (MacKenzie Crook) and Lance Stater (Toby Jones) are passionate members of the Danebury Metal Detecting Club. They’re metal detectorists, not to be confused with the metal detectors they hold in their hands when searching for Saxon treasure.

John Luther

Detective Chief Inspector John Luther (Idris Elba) works for the Serious and Serial Crime Unit on the BBC show Luther. He’s a brilliant, gritty detective who often toes the line between following the law and breaking it. Either way, tweed’s never looked better than it does on him.
