The Doctor, Wrapped up Warm with Jill and Jane  

The First Doctor in a cloak and a black karakul hat.  Behind him is Jill (a paper dolls from the early 1980s).  She is wearing a blue and green striped top  that  comes down to just above the knees, with some kind of orange under dress and green knee length boots.  Her legs are disproportionately long.  She has her hands on her hips and her feet in a most unlikely pose.  The Doctor comes up to her elbow.

This is the first Doctor with Jill. They are wrapped up warm, presumably it is cold. Jill is, I think, a model or an air hostess (not entirely, I suspect, because of chauvanism, but because of the opportunities for outfits presented). She's a bit bigger than the Doctor - so probably something nefarious involving shrink rays is involved.


The First Doctor in a cloak and a white karakul hat.  Behind him is Jane (a paper dolls from the early 1980s).  She is wearing a leopard print coat over a purple dress with a high collar and blue gloves.  Her legs are disproportionately long and  she had a hand on one hip while looks over  her shoulder.  The Doctor comes up to her elbow.

This is the first Doctor with Jane. Again wrapped up against the cold. Jane is also, I think, a model or an air hostess. The Doctor is wearing a white hat because (at least according to my Dr Who Paper Dolls book) this worked better with the special effects in The Web Planet. The shrink ray is clearly still in effect.

Probably, as liadtbunny suggests, a sequel to The Faceless Ones

There's probably also a joke in there about the eugenics pseudo-science in stories like The Daleks and Galaxy 4 that "On this planet, Barbara, evolution has reached its peak in a race of Amazons made entirely of legs" but after my comments on Twice Upon a Time, I probably shouldn't be the one to do that (except that I just did).

Their legs are remarkably long.

Oh dear! It's the Faceless Ones gone wrong - too tall to be real humans!

Maybe something went wrong with their restoration process!!
