Original 5th Doctor items on eBay -
April 2013

A few more original costume pieces from the Fifth Doctor era have popped up on eBay.
Here’s what I found.

Planet Of Fire
Sarn Elder Costume
SOLD FOR £572.87

This is a Sarn Elder costume from the 1984 Doctor Who story Planet of Fire.

It comprises a long smock, head scarf and various woollen bangles and neckties. It is a basic and functional outfit in remarkably good condition – mainly because it has been in a cupboard for over ten years! I purchased the item from a well known collector in 2002 and have never got round to displaying it.

A tag with “Elder ‘Dr. Who’” written in blue biro is attached inside the head band. The whole costume comes in a clear plastic bag with a BBC Wardrobe logo.

Planet Of Fire
Sarn Necklaces and Bracelets
SOLD FOR £87

This is part of a Sarn female costume from the 1984 Doctor Who story Planet of Fire.

It comprises three necklaces and three bracelets, all made from a gauze-like material and wool. Some considerable effort was put into the background costumes for this story and the attention to detail shows in these pieces. They would make a brilliant conversation piece if displayed in a simple picture frame.
