^ I think only started with Davison - McCoy where a Doctor had a standard costume. Before that, I think it varied and wasn't so set in stone. A JNT thing, at least during the classic series.
How did Hartnell's or Troughton's outfit change? Sure, Hartnell often adopted period clothes, like in "Marco Polo" and "The Reign of Terror," but his basic costume seemed pretty standardized, as did Troughton's.

I thought Tennant's look was a bit like a Mod, while Smith's final look, with the coat and his hair, made him look like a Teddy Boy/Rocker.

I wonder if there's an article or site somewhere covering the evolution of the various Doctors' costumes. That seems like the sort of thing someone would surely have written about.
Something like this? http://www.newsarama.com/9574-agent-...ctor-whos.html

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

Oh, of course. I should've known Alan would have it covered. Still, it's more an overview rather than a more detailed catalog of how the Doctors' costumes evolved, which is what I was hoping for.

^Except it doesn't seem to cover the first two Doctors, which are the ones I'm most curious about at this point.

Hasn't he already caught up to the point where she's kind of deadish.
It's not like she was his first wife. (Since it was the 60's,) I'll assume he was married on Gallifrey, had a kid who had Susan.
It's generally assumed his wife was human, since although Susan has an immense intellect similar to a Time Lord, she was human and has since passed on after one life.

It could be that his wife was Gallifreyan, and that their child married a human who had Susan after that, but I think it's likelier his first family was entirely human.

But his wife and apparently Susans parents seem to be dead by the pilot episode so we'll probably never know.

And he has at least 3 wives then, Susans grandmother, Elizabeth the First and River. All 3 are dead by the "present day" or leading edge of the time stream.

Or maybe we're assuming wrong, that it's a mourning ring rather than a wedding ring.

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

We don't know one way or another what Susan's fate was/is, or if she is still alive.

Since the Doctor took her with him from Gallifrey, I would assume she's fully Gallifreyan.

I'm holding out hope we'll see her again.

He also supposely married Marilyn Monroe too and the first Doctor's ring was Roman in origin the third Doctor also wore it so it might be the same one.

Where does any of this come from? All we know is that he left Gallifrey with his Grand Daughter Susan in-tow

We have no indication, why she's with him, so no way to surmise about parents.

We have no indication she has died nor that she is Human

Huh? "Generally assumed" by whom? According to her entry on the Tardis Data Core, the novels, audios, and comics have all portrayed her as a Gallifreyan. There's nothing in the entire article about any work claiming that she was human or that she died after a single human lifespan.

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

As much as I don't want to learn everything about the Doctor's past, one thing I would love to see cleared up someday is the whole granddaughter thing, and how the Doctor apparently had this family at one time that was never mentioned again. I just think it'd be a shame if the show never took the opportunity to revisit Susan while Carole Ann Ford is still around, and have her and the Doctor catch up and interact one last time.

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

I think Hartnel did vary a bit now and then. For example, in later episodes he had a white cravat or whatever he wore while in earlier ones it was dark.

I think Troughton's trousers varied a tiny bit and maybe he had some different hancacheifs now and then.

Re: The 12th Doctor's Wardrobe Revealed!

One thing I've never been clear on, since "Power of the Daleks" is lost: When Hartnell regenerated into Troughton, was Troughton originally wearing Hartnell's clothes, or did his clothes change in the regeneration? It always kind of seemed to me that Troughton's outfit was basically the same as Hartnell's but baggier because he was smaller, but I'm really not so sure.

The Doctor's family has been mentioned several times over the years in The Tomb Of The Cybermen, Curse Of Fenric, The Idiot's Lantern among others. But not much about Susan and I agree it woulld be nice to know about her fate after The Five Doctors Special, but then I could the same about a large number of other companions.
