[edit]

When Tom Baker became the fourth Dr Who in 1973, his irritating grin and his jelly babies made him an instant hit. But what really caught the audience's fancy was his extra-long stripy scarf. The streets were soon full of teenagers in yards of knitted numbers.

The preferred colours were combinations of chocolate and tangerine, but anything went. Canny kids would persuade grandmothers to knit versions of school scarves that could go around their neck three times and still reach their Clarks Attackers.

Not surprisingly the look didn't survive the punk explosion, although Tom Baker's original scarf is now in a museum in America. If you are worried that you may need something substantial to keep the cold out this winter, never fear. Hip knitwear designer Jo Gordon has produced her 1999 take on the classic with her Tardistastic multicoloured cashmere scarf, available from the Scarf Room at Liberty (0171-734 1234). Just the thing to keep a Time Lord toasty warm.
