Since I knew nothing about it, I began to research the scarf. First I found there is not A scarf, but I think at last count six scarves. After several seasons it would be changed somewhat. And, don't laugh, there are stunt scarves. Oh yes, each scarf had a duplicate to be used in scenes in which the scarf might be damaged. This scarf is a STAR! As the program prgressed the scarf got longer and longer. Starting out at about 14 feet it grew long enough to wrap around the neck with the ends hanging to the ankles and the loop around the neck hanging to the waist. It appears to me Dr. Who was in constant danger of tripping over the darn thing and falling on his face. The scarf had a role in some of the stories. For example, in one it was unraveled and the yarn used to guide the good Dr so he would not be lost in what i suppose was a maze like situation. I have no idea if the scarf got billing. Scarf played by scarf? If you think I am making all this up out of whole cloth, sorry, yarn, google Dr. Who scarf and read the history, find a pattern or look at pictures. I found it a fascinating and sometimes funny look into the fan culture.
Well, I am back to knitting. I have completed about eight inches. Only thirteen feet four inches to go.
