Who’s a Millionaire?

Doctor Who fans are notorious hoarders, and moreso than other fans – the years of no TV series lead to a lot of fans splashing out on props and other high price paraphernalia.

Doctor Who Weekly - how much is yours worth?Following the announcement of a Doctor Who exhibition at the Judge’s Lodgings museum in Lancaster, the man who has several items of interest exhibited, Peter Jewell, is opening a stall as part of the market featuring some of his unique collection.

“I suppose I am lucky because a lifelong passion has become a job,” he said. “I think specialist stands are exactly what Lancaster market needs, because they attract a completely different type of person into the market.

“I quite like the fact that I have created a place for people to come and sit and talk about Doctor Who. I see people aged from two to 90 who all love the show.

“I would have loved to find like-minded people when I was younger.”

Curiously, according to the Lancaster Guardian, the first issue of Doctor Who Weekly (now Doctor Who Magazine) is worth £20,000! This surely can’t be right, we suspect, but it is a fascinating figure nevertheless.

The stall is expected to close with the exhibition in October.

(Note – since originally writing this piece, some comments have clarified that the collection of multiple copies Doctor Who Weekly 1-5 is worth £20,000 in total, rather than each!)
