Doctor Who Ace Hoodie

Gordon Bennett, Professor!

From 1987-9 the Seventh Doctor was joined on his travels by Ace – an outspoken, Nitro-9 carrying, Ghetto-blasting teenager from Perivale.

Recreating the logo from Ace’s iconic jacket, this hoodie puts a modern day spin on a classic Doctor Who costume.

Perfect for customisation this convention special design is strictly limited to just 100.

    Just realised that the neon tube logo used in the 80’s is all linked together obviously a subtle and insidious trap to promote togetherness and the terrible theory of inclusivity… (sorry, couldn’t resist.) What would ace think of the ridiculous logo rubbish! The hoodie is great and that’s the important thing.

    I cannot believe that people are complaining about a logo still. This is the fourth logo of the new era. There were many logos in the classic era all of which were used across all merchandise at the time. This item is brilliant or should I say ACE! It’s a bit silly to dismiss it due to something so pointless as a logo. I’m sure however that for everyone who refuses to buy it someone else will gratefully snap it up.

      Completely agree! An official Ace jacket is something lots of fans, myself included, have wanted for a long time! Alright, so it’s not a jacket but this is perhaps the next best thing seeing as a bomber with all the badges would cost a bomb (pun intended) to produce! The logo is on the front and barely visible, I’ll bet-it’s silly not to buy it purely because of two words on the front which do not intrude on the Ace design, the main selling point of the jacket!

      It’s a tacky logo. Simple as that. Many people don’t appreciate the female chromosome symbol being hidden in the logo either, which is perfectly reasonable.
      I don’t see why you’re moaning that people don’t like the logo. If multiple people all agree, then clearly there’s an issue at hand.
      To many people, such as myself, it reduces the value of the item and saves us all some money.
      It would be a bit like putting a logo sticker on the handle of a sonic screwdriver toy. It’s not necessary. Keep the logo on the label/packaging and be done with it.

      Well that is just ridiculous. The female symbol is a circle with a line under it. But the most important question is… why does it even matter if there is a female symbol represented? What difference does it make to your life? Does it oppress you? How can it possibly offend you? It’s a symbol that represents half of the human race. It’s not a political symbol. It’s not a call to arms. It’s a logo for a British television show. Your argument can only lead to a conclusion of sexism. If you have no problem with women then a symbol can have no detrimental effect on you. Shame on you.

      You are complaining of a female symbol but if the logo wasn’t on you would buy it. Despite the fact that the item that is based on a female character with her name emblazoned on the back! Talk about irony…

      By the way, its not a hidden symbol. A hidden representation would still have to look like the symbol. A circle with a line through it is not the same as the female symbol. According to android it means you’ve turned on a specific feature. Or it may be that they have hidden a highway code message in the logo! Right I’m of to start a new conspiracy theory…

      The female symbol to clarify is a circle with a cross underneath it bears no resemblance to the o in the logo.

    • The Other Steve

      October 19th, 2019 - 1:17pm

      Complete rubbish. You look at that ‘O’ in the logo and you’ll see it.
      Delighted to see that you’ve just jumped to accusing me of being sexist. For what it’s worth, I quite like Whittaker as the Doctor, it’s a new change for the show. I just don’t like that her entirely irrelevant gender is being pushed upon people.
      People can be fans of the show and not like certain elements, you know. Let that be a lesson to you.
      Again, I love Ace. I think she’s a fantastic companion, hence why I’d buy one of these and wear it with pride. It just happens to be a shame that THIS logo is emblazoned upon the product. It should be on the label, and no more.

      Love the way people are moaning about the logo having female elements, are you forgetting it’s based on aces costume, which is female anyhow. Funny that. It looks great.

      Completely agreed Steve! Was about to purchase one and then saw the tacky new logo on the front, and I thought to myself, ‘what a shame.’

      Agreed. I would have bought it if it didn’t have the logo on it too.
