BBC makes 24ft Tom Baker scarf specially for birthday promo

There is much for eagle-eyed Doctor Who fans to pick over in the trailer for the 50th anniversary special, Day of the Doctor, which first aired on BBC1 on Saturday after Strictly Come Dancing. Among them are Daleks, Cybermen, companions, K9 and Time Lords from William Hartnell to Matt Smith – plus their sonic screwdrivers. Tom Baker is pictured floating in space, surrounded by debris including his favourite snack – jelly babies – and enveloped by his trademark striped scarf. The Sun reports that the scarf is a special 24ft version that was knitted specially for the trailer and took two weeks to make. If fans are keen to get their hands on a scarf of their own, an official version, made of authentic 1970s acrylic, is available for £49.99 online – but sadly only in a mere 13ft length. "Nicely made," writes one reviewer »
