Prop Store London auction -
23rd September 2015

So, after a number of lack-lustre auctions, it finally looks like Bonhams has a genuine challenger to their Entertainment Memorabilia sales.

PropStore.com have been selling high-end props and costumes for sometime now, including the occasional Doctor Who piece.

But this month they are holding a live auction at the BFI IMAX cinema in Waterloo - for all intents and purposes a Bonhams style auction.

there‘s some amazing stuff on offer, from Mr Spock’s costume from classic Star Trek, to costumes from Back To The Future, the Alien and Star Wars films.

And unlike the last couple of years of Bonhams auctions, there are is a good spread of quality items on offer to attract the interest of the dedicated Doctor Who fans out there.


As usual I have separated the items by Doctor era, and you can see the rest of the items here:

Here are just the lots relating to
the First Doctor

A Dalek and production-used shooting script from Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time. Nicknamed “Paul,” this creature was one of four used for the recreation of their first appearance on Doctor Who.

Lights in the dome, powered by a 12v battery, light up when the operator speaks. The monster is finished in grey, blue and faux-silver paint.
