Satan Pit Charity Auction

We’ve had word from of a special auction taking place shortly in Surrey, with a special lot from the star of Doctor Who.

This is a rare opportunity to own an exclusive piece of Doctor Who history!

David’s personal script from the Doctor Who series 2 episode, The Satan Pit, is going to auction on Wednesday 28th March. It has been signed by David, Billie Piper and Russell T Davies and all proceeds will go to charity (the PTA of David Tennant’s Godson’s primary school). The auction will take place at the John Nicholson Auction Rooms in Surrey.

There is a reserve price of £1,000 on this item. The lot number is 421 and it is expected to appear at approx 12:00pm to 12:30pm

Don’t forget to tune in to BBC Four tonight as the digital channel runs a repeat of part one of The Web of Fear in its evening of London Underground-themed programs. As ther BBC’s Official Doctor Who site point out, part one is the sole surviving episode of this classic adventure from 1968, which pitches the Second Doctor alongside his great friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, who at this point is still a colonel…

Finally, if you managed to forget the terrible rumours of Doctor Who Series 1’s pre-production, never fear for Digital Spy has reawoken them for you! Gasp in pity as we remember that pint-sized sexbomb Rachel Stevens auditioned for the part of Rose Tyler… feel your eyes bulge out in astonishment as you learn that the Sunday People truly believed that magician Paul Daniels was in talks to play the Doctor… it’s all here as well as news that Nigel Havers was once in the running to play Captain Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager (really) and that Battlefield‘s Christopher Bowen played the lead in a never broadcast pilot of a television version of the Liam Neeson movie Darkman. It’s probably also worth mentioning as an addendum that Bowen was also auditioned on March 1st and March 9th 1994 as the Eighth Doctor. It could have been oh-so-different.

Ah, the fickle finger of fate…
