Louise Page - The Tie Ten story

We are getting down to the last few ties in my tie index, and costume designer Louise Page is on hand today to tell us about Tie Ten, the St George by Duffer.

It was first seen in Utopia, and the subsequent episodes The Sound Of Drums and The Last Of The Time Lords.

Louise had explained to us that for the series two double episode, The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, she had chosen a new tie (Tie Six) for a one-off use in that story, thus reducing the the chance of over exposure of her more favourite ties.

So when it came to the season finale story arc to series three, she put the same principle into practice, using a brand new tie that after this story was never seen again.

Louise explains the background to this unique tie.

Thanks to Kevin Coppa for giving the interview clips the polished look, and enormous thanks to Louise Page for sharing her memories of dressing the Tenth Doctor with us all


  1. Did Louise mention that John Simm wore the identical tie in lie on mars, when i saw the two, i always thought it was an in-joke...was it deliberate or co-incidence?

  2. Is it? I would like to see some pictures or videos with it, it would be interesting to see it worn in something other than Tennant's brown suit :P
