About the Costume

This space suit was first seen in the the1966 episode of Doctor Who, entitled The Tenth Planet, where Earl Cameron wore it as Glyn Williams. The costume seems to be one in a set of other similar space suits that show up alongside it in The Tenth Planet, as well as another episode of Doctor Who entitled The Wheel in Space, though the exact same suit does not re-appear in The Wheel in Space.

The exact same costume does, however, appear in the 1980 film Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, where it is worn by Alan Harris as the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk. Since filming for Star Wars took place partly in England, it was likely hired out from the same costume house that provided suits to Doctor Who fourteen years earlier. A close inspection of the detailing on the costume reveals them to be the same, though some minor additions have been added for Empire Strikes Back.
