Figurine Collection - Seventh Doctor

I haven’t reported on this publication much, but now for Seventh Doctor fans (and me) there is a good reason to talk about it.

Issue 51 has just been published, and it features The Seventh Doctor, complete with obligatory figurine.

Inside the accompanying magazine there are all manner of articles containing facts and information.

One of these is specifically about Sylvester McCoy’s costume.

I have a particular interest in this article - as I wrote it!

A little while back I was approached by the editors to take on the writing of all future articles relating to The Doctor’s costumes, and have been engaging in doing so for several months now. I have also been acting as a consultant on costume related things.

So far I have written a number of articles - but I am duty bound not to reveal what I have been writing, until after their publication.

Now finally, after issue 51 is now on news-stands, I can reveal my involvement.

Meanwhile, someone is selling of their script collection on eBay this month, and here are the times relating to the Seventh Doctor.

Strange Matter (Time And The Rani)
Episode 4 rehearsal script

Listed is a original BBC Doctor Who Script once owned by the late producer John Nathan Turner.

The Rehearsal script is entitled Strange Matter, episode four, and was the original working title before changed to the now familiar Time and the Rani (Dated : 24.3.87) starring Sylvester McCoy as the 7th Doctor. The item is in very good order, although shows slight pin rust, and is fragile being 28yrs old. So take this into consideration.

The item was kept by John in a filing cabinet for many years until his sad passing, then sold by his friend TV presenter Stephen Cranford who provided a signed letter of provenance which accompanies this great collectors item whoever wins this.
