In scenes reminiscent of Germany’s hyperinflation turmoil of 1923, a man has purchased a stick of celery for £5500. He was of course a Doctor Who fan, and he bought the stick to donate money to Children in Need…

Dimity Telfer is the 21 year old Australian fan who bid for the plastic vegetable on internet auction site eBay after the BBC put the signed celery stick up for auction in aid of children’s charity ‘Children In Need’ last week.

The starting bid for the vegetable – worn by Fifth Doctor Peter Davison – began at just 99p.

Speaking to tabloid the Mirror:

“I couldn’t let an opportunity like that get away from me and it’s for a great cause. I got into ‘Doctor Who’ in 2005 and I’ve been hooked. Peter Davison is my favourite.”

But after ten days of furious bidding, with 87 offers placed, Dimity emerged victorious with the top bid of £5,500 – the equivalent of AUS $12,760.

The celery-wearing Fifth Doctor and the current incarnation came face to face as part of the Children in Need 2007 event, the first time a star of the modern era series has met a previous incarnation.
