After the success of their Fourth Doctor Scarf, Lovarzi, the UK’s leading online scarf retailer, is releasing five more unique Doctor Who products in partnership with BBC Worldwide to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary.
The range is essential for fans of the Seventh Doctor - Sylvester McCoy - but there’s something new for everyone, including a specially-designed Dalek Scarf. The Seventh Doctor's Jumper and the incredibly-detailed Silk Scarf are ideal for cosplayers, and the 100% cotton Hanky finishes off the look perfectly.
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 20th 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.
Finally, the reversible Dalek scarf is an entirely unique design, initially available in two inter-woven colour combinations: Blue and Light Grey; Grey and Charcoal. The scarf is made in Italy from finest quality wool and modal, resulting in a very fine finish.
