Anyone Want To Show Me Some Doctor Who Love?
Growing up, I was a massive fan of Doctor Who. I collected all the videos and books I could get my hands on. When I was a teenager, the show was off the air, so I had to make do with what ever Doctor Who merchandise I could get my hands on. The 7th Doctor, Sylvester McCoy, was (and still is) my favourite Doctor. Not because he was a particularly good actor. Far from it. He couldn’t do righteous anger to save his life – which should be a requirement for any Doctor. But he was the Doctor I grew up on. It was his adventures I followed in the books published in the 90s.
So when I saw this auction, part of me wished I had something resembling money.
These are props and costumes going back to the Peter Davidson era and even including some items from the 2009 specials. Not all of them have aged well in storage. The Kandyman costume (pictured on the left) has suffered some serious decay.
The item that really caught my attention was Ace’s bomber jacket. Ace is my favourite Doctor Who companion ever. And that jacket sums up every thing I love about her. So if there’s anyone in London with more money than they know what to do with who wants to show some serious love to Pop Culture Christ, you know what you need to do ;)
