Ben Jackson once called Polly Wright "Nanook of the North" to describe the thick outerwear she had found from the TARDIS wardrobe to protect her from Antarctic weather. (AUDIO: The Bonfires of the Vanities, TV: The Tenth Planet)

Behind the scenes Edit

Though unspecified in the script, Nanook of the North was a 1922 award-winning documentary about Arctic Inuits that claimed to be a depiction of a real person and his family, though the entire film was in fact a staged hoax. The name became synonymous with being prepared for, or thriving in, wintry conditions.
