The Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot, along with several resistance members, donned greatcoats as disguises to escape from the War Lord's central headquarters. (TV: The War Games) Much later, in his eighth incarnation, the Doctor again wore a greatcoat — this time as a replacement for his own, destroyed clothing. (PROSE: The Slow Empire)
Jack Harkness also wore a greatcoat. Adopted when the Time Agent tried to perpetrate a con in the middle of the London Blitz, Harkness continued to wear the coat — or at least others like it — for the many long centuries after he became effectively immortal. (TV: The Empty Child and others) At some point, he came to view it as absolutely essential to his identity, and went to great lengths to ensure that he always had a greatcoat to wear. (TV: Immortal Sins)
Behind the scenes Edit
The Second Doctor names the object in The War Games. In Torchwood, it largely goes unnamed. However, it is the subject of puns, such as when Ianto Jones calls it a "great coat" after one of his initial encounters with Jack Harkness. (TV: Fragments)
