Original Joan Ellacott costume designs
on eBay

When you think of the Fourth Doctor era, the costume designers everyone remembers are James Acheson and June Hudson.
their work was iconic but a number of other designers contributed to the look of some of the most landmark serials along the way.

One of these, The Deadly Assassin, was designed by Joan Ellacott, and a portfolio of her entire career has been split and sold on eBay. Amongst the designs for a variety of costume dramas there are four of her designs for the robes worn by the Time Lords and the returning Master as seen in The Deadly Assassin.

Two of the designs have fabric swatches attached, and one has George Pravada’s measurements!
