I really enjoy tracking down and replicating costumes in Doctor Who! That’s a given.
Once you’ve gathered a costume to wear, the chase is usually over. But if there are variations to be had, the chase can be back on with avengeance.
It‘s been a while since I made my first full season 19 Fifth Doctor costume, and since then I have added a couple of variants - the season 21 version of the jumper; and the screen-worn waistcoat from Planet Of Fire.
But a friend of mine put me on to a often forgotten variant that’s rarely cosplayed - the Children In Need Dimensions In Time special!
Presumably at the time nothing else was to hand, so they sourced a next-best option - it was for charity after all, and they had to call in a host of favours to make it happen.
Personally I hadn’t paid too much attention to this, like I’m sure a lot of others have, and since the episode is mired in rights issues, it hasn’t seen the light of day since it was first broadcast back in the 1990s (you’ll find an illicit copy or two no YouTube, but it’s not on any of the official DVD releases).
It’s like this was the exact one!
But yet it is a modern garment. I wonder if this is a known team’s whites?
