The article is divided into seven sections:

2. Meet the costume designer
In this video Ray talks about his work on series nine

3. Gallery: Costume concepts
Here is a fascinating collection of 10 highly detailed concept drawing pulled from a number of episodes during series nine

4. How do I become a costume designer?
Ray gives an insight into his route into costume designing

5. Gallery: From sketch to reality
In this second gallery, more sketches are paired up with photographs of the finished costumes,
6. Decide you destiny
