Radio Times - Who’s longer than Who?

It’s been a bit quite in the Radio Times of late regarding classic Doctor Who features.

Today though there was a small article relating to an episode of The Million Pound Drop from last year that caused some controversy at the time.
I won’t go into the details as you can read it for yourself below.

It is accompanied by a photo of Sylvester McCoy in Colin Baker’s costume – not the best picture to use!

McCoy Hat Bandana -
Limited Edition and screen-accurate!

These hankies are now
Please refer to the replicas I have made
if you require a red hanky
Over the past year or so I have been striving to make as good a replica of the McCoy Hatband Hanky as I possibly can using Spoonflower.
I’ve gone through three versions to date, each getting better than the previous.

But what would be the ultimate would be to track down a supply just like the originals that were bought for the series by costume design Ken Trew.

Well, it just so happens I had a tip-off from a client of mine who pointed me towards a stockist who had them for sale!!!!!

I contacted them and found that although they had it in stock, they only had a limited number and would not be restocking as they no longer dealt with that supplier.

Not wanting to waste an opportunity, I snapped up their entire stock – well, the few they had – and can now offer them for sale!
