Original 5th Doctor items on eBay - September 2012

Over the past couple of weeks there has been a small flurry of original Fifth Doctor Props and costumes for sale on eBay in September. It’s been like a mini Bonhams auction!

Here’s what’s been on offer.

30 Years In The TARDIS
Complete Cyberman Costume
SOLD FOR £1,420

This is an 80s style classic Doctor Who Cyberman which I believe was used in the anniversary documentary, 30 Years in the TARDIS. The body is made from latex over some sort of thin boiler suit, the head and chest unit is plastic, various bits of piping complete the classic Cyberman style.
Unfortunately, in common with most of his compatriots, he suffers from Cyber Crotch – a medical condition which causes paint to crack around his nether regions. In a few areas his suit is fraying and I doubt it will be possible to remove him from his mannequin without causing some serious damage.


Resurrection Of The Daleks
Dalek Trooper Helmet
SOLD FOR £720

This is an authentic screen used prop from the classic 1984 Doctor Who story, Resurrection of the Daleks - a helmet worn by one of Lytton’s Dalek troopers.

It is constructed from sturdy plastic with an adjustable piece inside to allow it to sit comfortably on the head – this was probably lifted from a hard hat. It is a fine example of an 80s Who prop and has stood the test of time with a few small areas of cosmetic damage only. The opaque plastic visor is a replacement part – I believe all of these were broken, scuffed or scratched either during filming or in transit to exhibitions afterwards.

Resurrection Of The Daleks
Dalek Trooper Gun
SOLD FOR £644

This is an authentic screen used prop from the classic 1984 Doctor Who story, Resurrection of the Daleks - a gun carried by one of Lytton’s Dalek troopers. It is constructed from thick plastic with a tubing section, wooden handle inside to carry it and opaque red ‘laser’ at the end – in common with most of the other guns built for this story, this small red plastic piece has got damaged over the years (most of the broke during filming, they’re very fragile!) but on the whole this prop is in excellent condition.

Resurrection Of The Daleks
Dalek Trooper Overall
SOLD FOR £765.53

This is a part costume as worn by the Dalek Troopers in the classic Doctor Who story Ressurection of the Daleks.

It consists of a fibreglass chest and back plate which hooks over the shoulders, a coverall with 'leather' details to front and shoulders, and a pouched belt which buckles at the front. The coverall has the name 'Lindsay Turner' written in ink inside the neck. The mannequin is not included with this Lot.

It was assembled from various sources, including a Longleat auction which I believe is where the coverall came from.

Frontios
Tractator Costume
SOLD FOR £1,385

This is the best surviving example of a Tractator, the monsters featured in the classic 1984 Doctor Who adventure, Frontios. It is constructed from latex, foam rubber and fibreglass, and is in remarkable condition for a prop of this age.

It was displayed at several Doctor Who exhibitions over the years and there is some age-damage to the foam latex at the base of the prop. However, this has been halted by remounting the creature on a slightly taller base which holds this skirt section clear of the floor. The rest of the monster is in excellent condition.
