The Sixth Doctor from 'Real Time', in the blue coat

When the BBC and Big Finish made a webcast featuring the Sixth Doctor ("Real Time" (audio story)), the animators had difficulty with the Sixth Doctor's multicoloured coat. They instead decided to have the Sixth Doctor wear a blue coat, which is referenced in dialogue at the beginning.

In-story, the Sixth Doctor then wore a blue coat in numerous Big Finish Audio Adventures, and the CD covers showed him in the blue coat. He wore the blue coat for most of his audio adventures with Evelyn Smythe, and all of his audio adventures with Charley Pollard.

Eventually however, the Sixth Doctor reverted to wearing the original multicoloured coat.
