The Fires of Pompeii is a notable episode, not only because it features an actor who will go on to play a future version of The Doctor, but because the 10th incarnation of The Doctor’s travelling companion, the wonderful Donna Noble forces him to change history, if only in a small way, with this epic speech, which can be found here.
In this episode Donna fully embraces the Roman way of life, going so far as to dress like a Roman Woman.
I’ve put together some ideas on how we can all emulate Donna’s amazing look.
Before I go any further I just want to say how hard this style of dress was for me to find, while the shape the classic Empire Line was easily available in every colour but various shades of purple.
A brighter shade of purple with sleeves.
Budget busting and form fitting.
Donna’s dress has gold embellishments around the neck and waist, however if you don’t want dust off the old needle and thread, there’s are some ways you can achieve the same look.

Don’t forget the gladiator sandals.
Donna finishes off her look with a black pearl drop necklace.
