New Burgundy Fourth Doctor Scarf from Lovarzi!
We’ve already brought you news of the Seventh Doctor scarf and jumper/tanktop from Lovarzi, but to build upon the success of their Fourth Doctor Replica Scarf, the clothes company have made Doctor Who cosplayer dreams come true by releasing this new burgundy variant from Season 18!!
While the majority of Doctors stay in one outfit during their time onscreen, Tom Baker’s
Fourth Doctor swapped his brightly-coloured scarf in his final set of stories. Lovarzi’s Season 18 Fourth Doctor Scarf in Burgundy is made from Acrylic Chenille. It was first seen in The Leisure Hive (1980) and was designed by June Hudson under instructions from producer, John Nathan-Turner. The scarf was utilised extensively until the Fourth Doctor’s swansong serial, Logopolis.
The scarf was even used in publicity shots for the 25th anniversary special, The Five Doctors (with the Fourth Doctor represented by a waxwork destined for Madame Tussauds!) before retiring to Blackpool’s Doctor Who exhibit, which operated from 1974 to1985, and 2004 to 2009.
Tom Baker actually wore scarves of various lengths, depending on what each scene entailed – one even measuring three times his own height – but Lovarzi’s is 13ft/ 3.96m in length, including tassels, and 10” (28cm) wide.
The Season 18 Fourth Doctor Scarf in Burgundy and the previously reported Seventh Doctor scarf and tanktop will all be available for pre-order from Lovarzi.co.uk, Forbidden Planet and the Doctor Who Experience from September 2013.
