This week on Channel 4, reality challenge-the-hoarder show Get Your House in Order features a Doctor Who fan…
It seems that 42-year-old lab technician Barry Phillips is an avid collector of all things TV-related – but mainly Doctor Who. Featuring location footage recorded at the Big Blue Box convention earlier this year (organized by Stephen Elsden for his Compaid charity), the show is hopefully going to help Barry find a way through the maze of artifacts that he has collected.
With a house crammed high with unopened Doctor Who toys and over 5000 copies of the Radio Times, naturally Barry realises something needs to change (otherwise they would have featured someone else) so it will be interesting to see just what he does with his most prized possessions.
Fortunately, interior designer Abigail is on hand to give Barry a ‘retro bachelor retreat’ design scheme that will hopefully inspire him not to clutter his home again, while dealer Nick needs to raise £3000 to pay for the redesign.
Fortunately, Colin Baker is on hand at the Blue Box event, and helps to sell Barry’s memorabilia.
But will Barry stick to his side of the bargain and keep his house in order for good?
Find out Thursday night, 8pm on Channel 4!
