A collection of thirty seven costumes from recent episodes of Doctor Who are being offered by Angels The Costumiers in the Entertainment Memorabilia auction on Thursday 15th December 2011 at Bonhams
, Knightsbridge, London.
Angels The Costumiers is the worlds longest-established supplier of costumes to the film, theatre, and television industries. Angels Chairman, Tim Angel, who, as a young costumier, first suggested incorporating the iconic, thick scarf into Tom Bakers Dr Who outfit, explains why his company loves the show: Dr Who is a perennial TV favourite, and the Angels team always looks forward to working on the show because of the extraordinary diversity of costumes that are required to bring-to-life the timelords journeys. The costumes in the Bonhams auction offer the chance for fans to connect with their favourite episodes, and take home a beautiful piece of TV history.
The costumes come from a number of recent episodes including The Shakespeare Code (2007), Human Nature/The Family of Blood (2007), Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of Daleks (2007) and The Fires of Pompeii (2008), and have been worn by actors including David Tennant, Matt Smith and Freema Agyeman.
Highlights include a wedding guest outfit complete with top hat and a cream coloured silk scarf, which was worn by Matt Smith in The Big Bang, 2010 (£1,200-1,800), a doublet and hose outfit worn by Lucian Msamati as Guido in The Vampires of Venice, 2010 (£600,700) and a three-piece suit worn by David Tennant in Human Nature/The Family of Blood, 2007 (£1,000-1,500).
Stephanie Connell, Head of Entertainment Memorabilia, comments, As the worlds longest running science fiction television programme, Dr Who has attracted a cult following and we expect fans of the show to jump at the chance to bid for these items.
