It’s great to finally get back to our Doctor Who series and Eight is one I have been greatly anticipating as he is my absolute favourite Doctor. He may have only had one movie but I am in love with the Big Finish audio dramas. I was so glad that McGann got to continue in the role even if only in audio form.
As his run was the most unconventional, the evolution of his character and his costume bare the evidence of that. Eight is very romantic, easily the most refined and elegant of the Doctors.The original costume never really felt lived in, he was so buttoned up, and because we only see him wearing it in one film, he never got the opportunity to break it in and make it his own like the other Doctors.
But over the years he’s changed, starting out as an old soul with a child-like enthusiasm that gradually gave way to a darker side as he was traumatised by certain events, which culminated in him becoming the War Doctor. As such, my costume reflects elements of his journey, it’s not quite as stuffy as his original costume, there’s a bit of edge there.
I’m not a massive Doctor Who fan, but I am very attached to this series of shoots as Courtney’s desire to do a fashion portrayal of each Doctor was a catalyst for many of the shoots you see on this site. After a year of working closely together it was fantastic to finally add another couple of Doctors to the collection - this one, plus one another who you will see next week. And the location couldn’t have been more perfect, we were incredibly lucky to discover that the location we’d picked had a very similar palette to the costume we were working with. Another in a long string of happy accidents.

Skye has been living out of her van since she left the foster care system and for the past few years she’s been investigating strange phenomena the government covers up. Recently, she heard about a blue box, a telephone booth, and a woman that seem to show up in a series of odd and important events throughout time. She goes looking for her, driving to places that experience strange events or where history is being made. When she finally finds her, a slim young British woman who refers to herself as The Doctor, she is surprised but after their first adventure-The Doctor was there to relocate a race of sentient plants that she had convinced to not take over Earth but there were a few dissenters- not disappointed. When she asks Skye to join her in the TARDIS, smiling sweetly with twigs in her hair, Skye doesn’t hesitate to say yes.

Why is Christopher Eccleston afraid of Paul McGann?

Can we take a moment to appreciate that 50 years of a television show, with multiple writers, a reboot, and the fixing of a gaping plot hole have come together to give us the ability to make this exact pun?
