Bonhams auction - 23rd June 2010

When I was at the last Bonhams auction, one of the auctioneers made mention of a further sale in June, where Doctor Who items would be available.

I think I was expecting another full-on sale of ex-BBC items, but what it appears to be is a general Memorabilia sale, with a hand full of Who related lots.

There are seventeen items in total, and you need to real carefully what they are. The repeated use of the phrase “built for exhibition purposes” is a bit disappointing.

I’ll go to the viewing, but I can’t see myself bidding on anything.

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 Seventh Doctor era
Lot No: 137
A replica costume created for exhibition purposes, the costume comprising head and hand pieces of moulded plastic and foam latex, the headpiece in the form of a fly with protruding teeth, with tuxedo jacket and matching trousers, of black wool, a white waffle shirt, a blue velvet bow tie, grey socks and pair of slip on grey shoes, on mannequin and base, height 60 inches

Estimate: £250 - 350
Sold for £540

The head and hand pieces were cast from the original screen used costume, and this piece was created by the effects workshop.
