Time Travelling Tardis Among Doctor Who Props for Sale at Bonhams
The TARDIS was created for the programme in 2005 and is expected to fetch £8,000-12,000.
LONDON.- Bonhams are to sell the TARDIS used to transport Christopher Eccleston as the ninth incarnation of Doctor Who in the Entertainment Memorabilia auction on 23rd June 2010 at Bonhams, Knightsbridge.

The TARDIS was created for the programme in 2005 and is expected to fetch £8,000-12,000. A more affordable miniature TARDIS model created for exhibition purposes and measuring 5ft high is also on offer, with an estimate of £300-400.

Some of the oldest Doctor Who props ever to appear at auction will also go under the hammer. Daleks from the sci-fi programme always prove popular with bidders, and this sale includes the two of the oldest examples to come to auction. Lot 126 is believed to be the earliest surviving Dalek – it first appeared in ‘Dr. Who And The Daleks’, 1964 and ‘The Chase’, 1965 and is estimated at £2,000-3,000. Lot 128 featured in ‘The Evil of the Daleks’, 1967 and is also expected to fetch £2,000-3,000.

A Cyberman helmet from ‘Moonbase and The Tomb of the Cybermen’, 1967 is estimated to sell for £3,000-4,000.

Also for auction are 23 lots from the Mike Trim Collection – original concept design illustrations by Mike Trim for Gerry Anderson’s sci-fi series. In 1965 Trim became a storyboard artist on ‘Thunderbirds’ and also contributed designs for secondary craft, vehicles and buildings. He is most famous for illustrating the cover of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, and a book of his illustrations entitled The Future was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim was released in 2006. The drawings on offer at Bonhams include vehicles and buildings from Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 and UFO and their prices range from £500 to £1,500.

Stephanie Connell of Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia Department comments, “Gerry Anderson shows and Doctor Who are both hugely important British institutions, and we are delighted to be offering such iconic items in this sale – they would be a fantastic purchase for any fan.”
