This Elizabethan collar, or more specifically, Whisk, was made for the 2005 production The Virgin Queen, in which all of Anne Marie Duff’s costumes were custom made for her. It went on to be used again in 2007 in Doctor Who on Angela Pleasence as Queen Elizabeth I in the episode The Shakespeare Code.  It was seen again in 2007 on Rupert Everett as Mrs.Fritton in St.Trinian’s. The collar was used again in an ad for LKXA Youth Bank. The collar was most recently spotted again in 2013 on Beyonce in an television ad for O2 Priority, which you can view here.

I can’t believe anyone ever wanted to wear that thing to begin with, let alone again.

This space suit was first seen in the1966 episode of Doctor Who, entitled The Tenth Planet on Earl Cameron as Glyn Williams.  The costume seems to be one in a set of other similar space suits that show up along side it in The Tenth Planet, as well as another episode entitled The Wheel in Space, though the exact same suit does not re-appear in The Wheel in Space.

The exact same costume does, however, appear in the 1980 film Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back on Alan Harris as the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk.  Since filming for Star Wars took place partly in England, it was likely hired out from the same costume house that provided suits to Doctor Who fourteen years earlier.  A close inspection of the detailing on the costume reveals them to be the same, though some minor additions have been added for Empire Strikes Back.

There’s a connection between two franchises that I didn’t expect.

Yup, and Doctor Who borrowed set pieces off Alien as well (The Horns of Nimon). If you’re into Whovian academia, Reading Between Designs: Visual Imagery and the Generation of Meaning in The Avengers, The Prisoner, and Doctor Who by Piers Britton and Simon Barker has a few anecdotes about art departments borrowing/outright thieving props and costumes from other shows. (It’s a fab book in general if you’re a classic Whovian, as there’s loads of analysis of set and costume design during the 60s and 70s.)

Reminder that Mickey Smith had a BBC website during season 2 called “Defending the Earth”, which is what he is referencing at the beginning of “Doomsday”. 

And of course Martha had her Myspace blog while she was travelling with the Doctor.  

I wish they still did that sort of thing!  I loved Martha’s blog.  I love getting insight into the companion’s thoughts between stories.

God I hate the Tegan reference in The Crimson Horror” so much.  It completely fucks with the emotional significance of Resurrection of the Daleks, and makes it sound as if Tegan’s story ended with her still wanting to get to Heathrow.

New Series fans, its as if the Eleventh Doctor had been talking about Rose and said,

"I once spent a hell of a long time travelling with a chav."

"What for?"

"Search me."

YES. I’ve previously commented on this, but to reiterate - this scene and others like it are what people like to refer to when they discuss Moff’s ‘respect’ for continuity. In actuality they’re conflating cheap jokes with meaningful references to the classic series.

I’d like to add something to what I wrote in the link above: “This scene was clearly included as yet another ‘nod’ to the past.” Actually, there’s a little more to it than that. At the time of broadcast, it was common knowledge that Janet Fielding (the actor who played Tegan) had cancer. Given the previous mentions that have been made of deceased Who actors (such as Nick Courtney), I think I’m making a very reasonable assumption about the motives for mentioning Tegan specifically in this scene - it was an attempt to acknowledge her contribution to the series in case the worst happened.

But of course, Moffat and Gatiss being the obnoxiously sexist writers they are, they totally buggered it up. Their attempt to be meaningful and referential is loaded with misogyny; note the ‘lol women talk too much’ and ‘women’s needs and wants are unimportant’ tropes.

What could have been an opportunity to reach out to a well-known companion and thank her for her work on Doctor Who - on national television! - became another throwaway sexist one-liner. And given Fielding is also a feminist? It’s just another smack in the fucking face.

Kind of just to add to it - the Doctor ruined Tegan’s life.  His interference got her aunt murdered, and he accidentally kidnapped her on her way to her new job, and by the time he got her back and ditched her - she’d lost that job.

Why was he trying to get her to heathrow?  Because it was the least he could do to not completely destroy her life!  No matter how gobby and annoying someone might be, kidnapping them and disregarding their need to get home is not very nice!

I always cringe in The Two Doctors at the “snap” moment.  It just didn’t work!

My favorite under-appreciated Doctor Who episodes → The Ark
Look, Dodo, you don’t know what you might have found out here. No gravity, poisoned atmosphere, all sorts of things. What happens if you get lost?”
I catch a bus back.”

There is the most fuck mindfucking essay on The Ark in Doctor Who & Race.  You’ll never be able to watch it the same way again.  Or anything else.
