I tried to convince Jen to include a Doctor Who joke in the original Blog post, but she wouldn't have any of it! I'm glad somebody else sees the humor in gargantuan scarves
Heard the most beautiful story today about that (hope it's true!):
When Tom Baker decided his character would wear a scarf, one of the Beeb's props bods went on a scavenge around the dept and packaged up all the findable yarn and sent it to an old lady that the Beeb used to use for knitting every once in a while, with a note saying "we need a scarf".
The lady, dutifully kept on knitting until all the wool was used up. The resulting scarf was over 30ft long.
There were several scarfs that Baker used as the Doctor after that.
