Footnotes

  • When Jon Pertwee auditioned for the role as the Doctor in 1969, he wore his father's velvet smoking jacket and the production team decided that it should become a permanent feature of his wardrobe. This was the only jacket made, and worn, for 'Planet Of The Daleks'. The tailor himself saw the jacket in 2007 and confirmed this to be the case; there was no spare or stunt jacket. Pertwee retained it after filming and kept it until the early 1990s.

    Close inspection of the programme shows several clear onscreen matches to the jacket i.e the loose thread on one of the left cuff buttons, the pattern in the velvet and the detail of the stitching to the lining.
