  • Alexandra Tynan (costume designer in the 1960s who created the look of the Cybermen)

  • Howard Burden (designer of the Twelfth Doctor’s costume)
  • Ray Holman (designer of the Eleventh and Thirteenth Doctor’s costumes, and Doctor Who’s current costume designer)

Plus, the stars who wore the designers’ creations in Doctor Who look back at their characters’ clothes:

  • Anneke Wills (Polly)

Grumpcast

Doctor Who: The Doctor Who Grumpcast IX – Rough and Tumble.

The Grumpcast is back for this jam-packed bumper edition! Tim, Simon and Richard have a butcher’s at sporting Who villains, an update on Phil Morris and missing episodes, a look at what PMF members were looking forward to in 2019, the latest on The Complete Collection Blu-rays and take an in-depth look at The Macra Terror animation.

But why Mike Gatting, Herb Alpert and grumpy Kate out of Line of Duty feature is not yet understood.

For those of you who get crabby about frippery, the missing episodes update is from 12 minutes and The Macra Terror is from the hour mark. For everyone else – enjoy!

Follow us @grumpcasters. Join the debate on Planet Mondas Forum and if you enjoy it it’s not like we want you to share it or anything. I mean we don’t get paid for doing this and we’re neglecting our families, jobs and pets to put this together, but you know, please yourselves. Actually… don’t share it. In fact don’t even listen. See if we care. (No we do. For God’s sake, please share it.)

    Doctor Who: 13Cast Episode 6 – Battle-scarred.

    The Gremlins have got a tight grip on 13cast this week. Giles’ PC didn’t record the first half, Paul’s PC decided to reboot at random intervals and Simon’s microphone was a bit variable, so Richard may have sacked the lot of them. But despite this, we’ve got our review ready for The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos and our thoughts on the season as a whole.

    Doctor Who: 13Cast Episode 5 – On Reflection.

    It’s Advent and the 13cast crew ponders the move of Doctor Who from Christmas to New Year. Then it’s review time for The Witchfinders and It Takes You Away, before a debate on the nature of Doctor Who and whether the last episode is an allegory for the latest series. Finally our Christmas lists.

    Note: Simon’s audio was badly affected by interference. We’ve done our best to edit round this, but there is distortion on his contributions and some have been lost.

Then the crew returns to the task of reviewing Demons of the Punjab and Kerblam! with diversions into Puncast and Latincast. And the famous sweet Yorkshire staple of Rhubarb. Which may, or may not be connected to Kerblam!
