One of the liberating things about the premise of the Doctor Who TV show, is that when you have a central character who is an alien who can travel in time and space it opens up the possibility for all kinds of stories, set in the past, present or far future. And sometimes you can mix them all up, so you have the past in the future, like in second episode of the seventh season from 2012, 'Dinosaurs on a Spaceship'.
With such a long-running show (Doctor Who will be fifty this year) and on the limited budget of episodic TV, the challenge for the costume department must always be to make the period outfits seem vaguely authentic and the space-faring costumes as diverse and interesting as possible, so the viewer doesn't feel they've seen it all before.
Don't you think this Egyptian outfit designed by Howard Burden would make an excellent Halloween costume? The gold disc material it's made of also reminds Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props of this Sorceress Marique costume from 2011's Conan the Barbarian movie remake.
These screen-used television costumes were photographed on display at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay on May 20, 2013, so be sure to check out all the other Doctor Who costumes and props that were part of the fantastic exhibit.
