Looking over some screencaps from the TV Movie the other day, I started asking myself how the initial confusion over the colour of the Doctor’s coat ever came about. I mean, look; it’s green (though not bottle green as it’s usually described; to me it looks more like a very dark olive green) in almost every light:
Then I remember that this was pre-DVDs and high-res and the costume being on display and that it looks brown
(There are a handful in which it looks green but those weren’t really seen back then)
It’s fascinating (to me, anyway) how one fabric can change colour so dramatically.
