As the 50th anniversary celebrations are fast approaching for Doctor Who and because so many of the otherworldly outfits featured in the British sci-fi show would make for fabulous Halloween costumes I thought I'd showcase as many as I can in the next few days, including these rather theatrical Gallifreyan Time Lord costumes.
Original Time Lord costume from
1976's The Deadly Assassin episodes
The iconic look of the Time Lords, with their distinctive high collar and cap, has subsequently returned in stories featuring the Doctor's peers. Apparently the red colour of the robes marks the wearer as part of the 'Prydonian Chapter' of the Time Lords, to which the Doctor once belonged.
If you're a fellow Whovian or want more costume inspiration for Halloween, be sure to take a look at these other Doctor Who costumes and creatures on display.
