The face is painted with brown eyes, light pink lips, and pink blush on the cheeks. The rooted blonde hair is styled in an asymmetrical, chin length, blunt cut parted on the side. It comes very stiff with product to hold it place.
The doll’s left ear is painted with two stud earrings: silver on the top one and gold and silver on the ear lobe. Jody Whittaker worked with a designer to come up with idea on what the first woman Doctor Who might wear for jewelry. Its first appearance is when she comes out of the dressing room at the second hand shop wearing her chosen female Doctor outfit.
The body has one straight hand and one cupped to hold the Sonic screwdriver. The Sonic Screwdriver accessory is made of translucent golden yellow plastic with silver details painted on.
The articulation is at the neck, shoulders, biceps (turn), elbows (double jointed to close), wrists, hips (can do splits in both directions), knees (double jointed to close). The ankles and torso are stiff.
