Another ultimate Doctor Who collectable can be yours – if you have room
Yes, another “have to have” group of collectables from Doctor Who are hitting the auction block today, 23 June, at Bonham’s in Knightbridge. If you lost out on the church used in the 2005 episode, “Father’s Day” with Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper or Captain Jack’s Range Rover used in Torchwood, which went for 18,000 pounds ($23,000) at an earlier Bonham’s auction, then we have something that may be closer to your price range for that ultimate collectable.
If you happen to have a spare 8-12,000 pounds ($12-18,000) lying around, then you can be the proud owner of the TARDIS that was created in 2005 that carried the Ninth Doctor around the universe. A little steep? Well, you can still come home with some of the oldest surviving collectables, including what is believed to be the earliest surviving Dalek, from the 1964 episode, “Doctor Who and The Daleks” offered for a mere 2-3,000 pounds ($3-4,500).
FYI, you might think about where you’re going to put these if you hold the winning bid. Since Bonham’s mentions “a more affordable miniature TARDIS model created for exhibition purposes and measuring 5ft high is also on offer, with an estimate of £300-400“, I can’t imagine how big the original is. Happy bidding!
