He still continues to wear the same black G-Star RAW jeans; eagle-eyed readers will notice him wearing his old black boots again in Cold War this week; and last week in The Rings Of Akhaten he was flashing around his glasses.
The glasses were originally worn by Amy in The Angels Take Manhattan, and were pinched by The Doctor, since when he seems to have adopted them as his own.
It’s like he’s clinging on to them as a perpetual reminder of the companion he lost.
They are quite distinctive, with large circular lenses; frames in a tortoise shell effect; and if you look closely, two front facing screw-heads where the bars join the frames.
I’ve had a number of emails this past week, asking where the glasses can be found, and thanks to one of my readers we now have a possible suggestion of a good match.
Black Eyewear Chico or the Anglo American 400.
Both have the circular lenses for sure CHECK
The frames are in a tortoise shell effect, though overall they seem lighter than the screen-worn version TICK
There are two front facing screw-heads where the bars join the frames CHECK
My feeling is the hinge on the side of the frames appears to be a bit heavier than screen-worn.
The frames read as being thicker and a lot lighter, but the shame and details do feel right.
What do you think?
Do you think they are THE glasses, or just a very good second best?
If you’ve spotted a better pair, or found the precise correct screen-worn version, let me know.
