Top Glasses From TV: Doctor Who

He’s the trail-blazing Time Lord that introduced us to fishfingers and custard and insisted that bow ties were cool. Forever the aficionado of all things alien, The Doctor has also picked up some serious style savvy during his adventures through time and space.

From wide-brimmed hats paired with impractically long multi-coloured scarves, to relaxed pinstripe suits teamed with Converse, he’s mostly recently been seen donning the controversial (but pretty darn nifty) Sonic Sunglasses. Yes, The Doctor is definitely partial to a pair of killer specs or two!

We’ve rounded up our favourite looks from recent years and made it easy for you to pinch some of that Galifreyan chic for yourself!

A Touch Of Ten

When he wasn’t busy analysing the Void with his fantastic 3D glasses, David Tennant’s Doctor would often sport a pair of tortoise-shell rectangular specs (during situations that required particular concentration!). The Doctor himself would later reveal that these were entirely unneeded and only worn to “look a bit clever” – but who are we to judge?

“Going My Way, Doll?”

Remember when we thought the Doctor and Rose would just stay together forever and nothing/nobody would ever get in the way of their perfect partnership for the rest of time? Cue a throwback to one of our favourite Ten x Rose moments.

Stepping out of the TARDIS in all of their Fifties finery, the duo’s playful get-up in The Idiot’s Lantern represents them at the height of their carefree, humanity-saving days. We adore Rose’s retro oval sunnies, which match back perfectly with the pretty pink accents of her outfit.

Not one to be outdone, The Doctor looks every bit the part too in his classic mirrored Aviators. Get ready to rock n’ roll with the The SS Collection S2242. Is there any other way to go, Daddy-O?

The Galifreyan Gentleman

“Salve amico, eccoci qui. Tu e io, all'ultima pagina. Quando leggerai queste parole, io e Rory non ci saremo più da tempo. Sappi che abbiamo vissuto bene e che siamo stati molto felici. Ma soprattutto, sappi che ti vorremo bene, sempre. Ogni tanto però mi preoccupo per te. Credo che una volta andati via noi, non tornerai qui per un po' e che forse sarai da solo. Non dovresti mai esserlo. Non restare da solo, Dottore. E fai un'altra cosa per me. C'è una bambina che aspetta in un giardino. Aspetterà ancora per molto tempo, quindi avrà bisogno di molta speranza. Vai da lei e raccontale una storia. Dille che, se sarà paziente, arriveranno dei giorni che non dimenticherà mai. Dille che vedrà e combatterà i pirati, che si innamorerà di un uomo che ha aspettato duemila anni per salvarla. Dille che darà speranza al più grande pittore mai esistito, e che salverà una balena nello spazio. Dille che questa è la storia di Amelia Pond. Ed è così che finisce.” #doctorwhoitalia #doctorwho #amypond #ameliapond #postfazione #eleventh #eleventhdoctor #mattsmith #karengillan #angelstakemanhattan #episode #like #follow #followus

This fez-donning, Geronimo-exclaiming regeneration smartened up his look from his predecessor, dressing in tweeds, waistcoats and, yes, bow tie galore! He was also often spotted wearing an oval full-rimmed pair of specs (when a certain Amy Pond hadn’t pinched them for herself!), only adding to his newly-found scholarly style.

We’ve found the perfect pair for the job with the Chiara Visione UCV1010  – a dapper, distinguished finishing touch for any intrepid Time Lord!

The infamous Sonic Sunglasses made quite the stir in the fandom when the Doctor temporarily abandonded his Screwdriver and opted instead for the instantly iconic ‘wearable technology’. Love them or loathe them, these super specs certainly helped our Time Lord out of a bind or two!

While discussing all things New Who, we can’t help but mention our favourite companion-that-never-was: the marvellous Osgood! With her signature thick-rimmed square shape specs (and a curiously familiar knitted scarf), she was an instant hit with fans for her unapologetic Doctor geek-outs.
