I need help to identify a tartan worn on Doctor Who: Jamie McCrimmon's Tartan
In the 1960's the BBC television program Doctor Who had a Scotsman aboard the Time and Space craft (The Tardis).
At this time, the series was black and white. I have found some photos from the series and would like to see if anyone can identify the tartan.

Hey that's jack sugden... My first dr who was tom baker really... Yhe ones prior to that were reruns...
This thread might answer the tartan Q though...
I would guess it was the MacDonell of Keppoch tartan. Alas, there was no recognized MacCrimmon tartan until relatively recently, although being hereditary pipers to the MacLeods, the MacCrimmons would likely have chosen to wear the MacLeod of Harris tartan since the adoption of clan tartans.

No Jack was his brother - he was Joe Sugden.

You are sir correct... it's been a long time since i've had the opportunity to watch, though i think joe had been written out already and the Dingles were taking over everything...

I did a search on line after you suggested it might be Maxwell. And came up with this.

As a side note to any "Outlander" book fans; Jamie McCrimmon from Doctor Who was Diana Galbaldon's inspiration for her Jamie Fraser character.

Was originally diacussed in 2007... The following was posted by Arlen
" My sister kindly checked online as she's a big Doctor who fan. Apparently it was made specifically for the BBC, but it's a mix of California tartan and the Logan tartan. Was made for the producer by a friend to celebrate his scottish roots and 40th birthday.
You could probably get away with the Logan modern tartan which is close..."

If he was from the 17th century, why did he never wear flashes?
