The splendiferous Splendid Chaps episode “Six/Clothes” that I recorded in Melbourne the other week is now up and available to be listened to! John Richards, Ben McKenzie, Petra Elliott, Zen Fletcher and I gather around some alarmingly tall microphones to discuss the Sixth Doctor, Peri, Mel, 80’s fashion, Glitz, Trial of a Time Lord, why the Doctor’s clothes are important, whether the New Who companions’ clothes date them or not (they do), and whether New Who costuming is just a little too… dare we say “safe”?
The episode is capped off by Tim Cav from Dave Wright and the Midnight Electric, doing far greater justice to that well known 1985 hit “Doctor in Distress” than it honestly deserves.
