Random Doctor Who Picture  

Jon Pertwee in a scene from his first story as the Doctor, where he disguises himself as a cleaning lady.  He's wearing a yellow tartan headscarf and scarf, and a blue floral overall.  Carrying a bottle of cleaning fluid and a cloth

It occurs to me that there is a reading of Doctor Who which suggests the Doctor has always rather wanted to be a woman.

Two dressed up as a washer woman as well. It's good to know who does all the cleaning in the TARDIS.

Maybe it was Bill's influence?

I want Doctor Who to be adult, serious and gritty again, like it was when Jon Pertwee was Doctor...

Though one could reasonably argue that sequences like this were rapidly abandoned as the production crew became more certain of the tone they were aiming for.

EDIT: Except this is from The Green Death so I'm talking nonsense.
