But then I began wearing the hat - around the house - every now and then, because I discovered that Elisabeth Sladen wore the same type of hat as her character, journalist Sarah Jane Smith, in Planet of the Spiders, one of my favorite episodes of classic Doctor Who.
So now this little purple knit hat is my Sarah Jane hat. I posted a photo to Facebook and Instagram of myself wearing the hat, which drew a fair amount of giggles from my friends (both Whovian and non-, who thankfully humor my obsessions).
|Yes, I'm wearing my long, green-and-white knit scarf, also known as my Tom Baker/Doctor Who Scarf, for extra effect and silliness LOL.|
There are no other episodes of Doctor Who where Lis wears a hat like that, so (fortunately) this will be the extent of my silliness in that respect. But I've amassed a very large collection of photos of Lis from Doctor Who and her other various television, movie and theatre roles, so who knows what other interesting observations I will make? Another collage is certainly only a click away, I'm sure...
