About the Costume

This striking coat has been worn at least nine times over the years. It was first spotted being worn by an extra in a 1987 episode of The Bretts. In 1993 it was worn by Stella Gonet as Beatrice Eliott in The House of Eliott episode Broadway Here I Come. That same year it was worn in a parody sketch of The House of Eliott called The House of Idiot, where Jennifer Saunders wore it as Beatrice Idiot in French and Saunders. The costume went on to be used twice in 1998 – first in the episode of The Mrs.Bradley Mysteries entitled Speedy Death, when Eleanor Tremain wore it as Dorothy Manners, and then by Julia St. John as Sarah Bannerman in The Grand. The costume was not seen again until 2013, when it was worn by Zoe Wannamaker as Ariadne Oliver in the Poirot episode Dead Man’s Folly. It was worn three times in 2015! First, by Aisling Loftus as Agnes LeClair in Mr.Selfridge, and then by Penelope Wilton as Irmgard Litten in the stage play Taken at Midnight. Finally, it was seen on Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith Crawley in Downton Abbey.
