"Doctor Who swaps Harris Tweed for Chinese rip-off as BBC sell replicas for Â£360" http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/showbiz...6908-23148531/Now this is just wrong. WTF where the BBC thinking?
Quote:FURIOUS Harris Tweed makers have hit out after BBC bosses ditched Doctor Who's trademark jacket for a Chinese fake. Matt Smith had worn a 1960s vintage jacket made from the traditional Hebridean hand-woven material. But when the 11th Time Lord's latest series began, makers were disappointed to see he had ditched the luxury pure wool. Their upset turned to anger when a Sunday Mail probe discovered the Beeb had dressed him in a Chinese rip-off that is 20 per cent acrylic. And they have struck a deal to sell the "officially licensed replica blazer" for Â£360.
