The murder of St George

In June last year I highlighted that Dara O’Briain was was seen sporting Tennant’s 50th Anniversary St George by Duffer tie during an edition of The Apprentice - You’re Fired!

Well one of my readers has spied the same tie in this week’s edition of Midsomer Murders.
Titled Let Us Prey, the episode was first screened on 8th January 2014.

It is worn by lead star Neil Dudgeon as Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby.
He puts the tie on around mid-episode and wears it pretty much to the end of the investigation.

As an aside the episode stars Michael Jayston, who played the Valeyard during the Trial Of A Time Lord season in 1986.

  1. Hi Steve, in keeping with this theme I think there are some other Doctor Who items being used in other shows.

    We of course know about tie 10 being used in Life on Mars, then there's this as well as The Apprentice.

    But I think Benedict Cumberbatch wears one of David Tennant's shirts (or at least one of the same brand) quite a bit in Sherlock.

    It's the shirt worn in The Time Crash and Silence in the Library.
    It's worn in a lot of scenes in many different lightings, makeing the colours range from a deep maroon

    To a plum like colour

    To a completely washed out almost black

    And these are all colours people theorised David Tennant's shirt was.
    I'm not totally convinced they're the same shirt as it looks so fitted on Benedict, but it looks too close to not question it.

    What do you think?
