The Witcher adds Doctor Who costume designer for Season 2, Tim Aslam no longer attached


We have previously reported that Doctor Who and Henry VIII costume designer Lucinda Wright will be joining the crew of Netflix’s The Witcher, but it was unclear what position exactly would she have in the future of the Henry Cavill series. Now we know.

We’ve been able to confirm with Netflix what some of us already suspected: Lucinda Wright will indeed be replacing Tim Aslam as the costume designer for Season 2 of The Witcher. Netflix declined to comment on the reason for this replacement.

  1. The armor of the Knights of Cintra alone! Completely impractical. Unprotected thighs from punctures and blows from infantry. Upper arms completely unprotected from saber blows from the horse. One should also have a vague idea of functionality. As a costume designer. If Nilgards’ swordsmen get their swords slapped in the face on a counterattack, they will suffer considerable wounds. But the main thing is an orc sword design.

  2. Yeah, costumes are the weakes part of Witcher from what I can see at the moment.
    Lot of them looks silly and cheap, why not use real middle age designs?

  3. They should just ask CD PROJEKT RED the right to use their costume design from the Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Everybody will be pleased.
