36 Years of Costumes Auctioned
Later this month, 36 years worth of Doctor Who props and costumes will be up for auction at Bonhams, taking place on February 24th.
With a taxi cab from The Runaway Bride, (now withdrawn) buses from Planet of the Dead and various other props and models stretching back to Invasion of the Dinosaurs, the majority of the lots are in fact costumes.
Among them are David Tennant’s two-piece Paul Smith dinner suit from Voyage of the Damned, although by far and away the most remarkable piece is Kylie Minogue’s waitress costume, expected to fetch up to Â£3,000.
If you’re looking to replicate the Rose Tyler look from 2005 there are plenty of opportunities to do so with both Billie Piper’s Empty Child and the Bad Wolf outfits available.
There are also Imperial Daleks, Haemovores, Gundan guards, Time Lord and Vervoid costumes from the classic era, to name but a few – here’s a slideshow of some of the highlights.
