Series Five costume index

A while back over on my Third Doctor Blog I ran a series of features about Jon Pertwee’s costume changes during his run as The Doctor.
I wrote it because I was curious to work out the transition from his first year when he wore the same clothes all season, through to his last where he rarely wore the same thing twice!

Matt  Smith’s costume appeared at the outset to be a fairly fixed affair, but as the series has progressed a number of subtle variants have emerged. What follows is an attempt to document these in one place.
All of the images below have been grabbed from the HD transmissions. Click on them to view in full resolution.
The Eleventh Hour

Jacket Donegal Tweed
NB: There is a minor continuity error in the closing scene, where a close-up shows The Doctor wearing the Harris Tweed jacket (see right) which does not appear for two episodes.

Shirt Burgundy Paul Smith with matching burgundy bow tie

Trousers Dogtooth design skinny jeans from TopMan
NB. These jeans can be quickly identified by the visible metal waistband button at the top of the fly (see below).

Boots Replica All Saints Layer boots


Meanwhile In The TARDIS
Disc 1 of complete Series Five DVDs
This bridging scene, which links The Eleventh Hour directly to The Beast Below, maintains perfect continuity between the two episode.

Victory Of The Daleks

Jacket Harris Tweed in Mackenzie two-by-two dogtooth weave

Trousers Plain charcoal skinny jeans
NB. These jeans can be distinguished from the dogtooth jeans by their clean closure at the waistband with no visible button (see right).

Boots Unidentified brown boots

The Time Of Angels
Flesh & Stone

Jacket Harris Tweed in Mackenzie two-by-two dogtooth weave

Shirt Burgundy Paul Smith with matching burgundy bow tie
NB. The cuffs have two buttons (so it is not the French Cuff Shirt I featured last month - sorry Ryan), but Matt wears the shirt with only one of these buttons done up (see below, bottom left)

NB. These jeans can be quickly identified by the visible metal waistband button at the top of the fly (see above, top left).

This bridging scene, which indirectly links Flesh And Stone to The Vampires of Venice, maintains perfect continuity from the preceding episode.

  1. actually i think he is wearing the other trousers in Victory of the Daleks. i'm trying to find a good shot of them, but I don't have a high enough resolution copy of the episode in front of me.

  2. I don't know if this counts, but the Harrys Tweed Jacket seems to be Mackenzie “two by two” dogtooth. As seen in http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/tv_and_radio/article7078205.ece

    Could be?

  3. It looked like in the preview for this weeks episode it showed a close up of the different brown boots. Haven't watched the episode yet but has anyone suggested what these might be yet?

  4. Does anyone have a link to a jacket of an appropriate make? Searching for "Donegal Tweed" does not yield very specific results.
