The Doctor’s Earring: Original Designer Alex Monroe Announces Official Replicas
V good pictures if you want a better look.

Re. imagery, then I think the earring is the most meta thing on the show! <3

ETA: So, I made an icon of the earring... Because poetry. The line is the final line from T.S.Eliot's Little Gidding. The poem basically IS Twice Upon a Time, but the ending is all Thirteen. <3

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree

Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always--
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

Ooo love it. The costume discussions for this show are always so great.

I was wondering about whether they'd had to adapt Twelve's costume. I think I would have guessed what they said--new boots and trousers. (I almost said pants. But I assume they let Jodie wear her own pants. You can be too method.)

No change there, then! (ETA: by which I meant always watch the jewelry)

Yeah, it's fascinating. I still remember the stuff about Eleven's outfit.
I do like the subtle callback of Eleven's purple coat in 13's outfit. Only having half a season of the purple coat was a tragedy.

As long as they have question marks on them, that's what matters.

Heee! I love the earring though, and wonder if I can somehow make a good icon of it.
Surely they'll have a nice profile shot at some point.

And yes, I'm remembering all of Clara's necklaces.
When I realized Amy was wearing an apple necklace at her wedding I was deeply pleased.
