Doctor Who Wardrobe Watch: The Key to Time

I've been watching the new Key to Time "Special Edition" DVDs, and noticed something interesting about Romana's wardrobe: In her first story, "The Ribos Operation", she's wearing all white. In "The Pirate Planet", she's wearing a pink top and white trousers. In the first episode of "The Stones of Blood", she changes into a kind of salmon pink trouser suit, and then in episode 2, changes again into a red dress.

We'll see if the pattern continues, but it sure looks like the costume designers were trying to suggest that she's becoming warmer and more colorful through continued association with the Doctor.
