Few television programmes make the same production demands as Doctor Who. With such diverse settings as distant points in Earth’s history and alien civilisations in the far future, the series has always stretched the ingenuity – and resources – of its talented costume designers.

This unprecedented magazine features numerous rare and previously unpublished illustrations showing how the look of a Doctor Who episode evolves from sketch to screen, plus exclusive interviews with many of those designers including:

  • Alexandra Tynan (costume designer in the 1960s who created the look of the Cybermen)
  • Barbara Lane (the designer of Azal, Alpha Centauri, the Axons and more – this is her first interview in over 40 years)
  • Lee Bender (designer and owner of Bus Stop, a boutique which supplied outfits for Sarah Jane Smith)
  • June Hudson (designer of the Fourth Doctor’s final outfit and many elegant costumes for Romana)
  • Colin Lavers (designer of the Fifth Doctor’s costume)
  • Amy Roberts (designer of Anthony Ainley’s Master)
  • Lucinda Wright (designer of Christopher Eccleston’s series as the Ninth Doctor)
  • 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)
  • Katy Manning (Jo Grant)
  • Sophie Aldred (Ace)
  • Camille Coduri (Jackie Tyler)
  • Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint)
