Doctor Who Rehearsal Scripts Go On Sale

For Doctor Who fans there’ll always be the argument over who was the best doctor, whether he/she should be referred to as ‘Doctor Who’ or simply, ‘The Doctor’ and even whether the original series is better than the new one.

Common ground however for all Doctor Who fans is that they love their memorabilia; and the opportunity to get their hands on even the smallest piece of the iconic show’s history is rarely passed up.

Gorringe’s of Lewes, one of the south’s leading auctioneers, is holding an auction where five rehearsal scripts for the original four episodes of series 2 - and one later one - are being sold. The Lot has an estimate of £1,500 - £2,000.

Formerly the property of John Nathan-Turner (Producer), this special lot includes scripts dating from 24th April 1965 - 15th May 1965, from series 2, comprising:

  • Episode 1 - The Space Museum,
  • Episode 2 - The Dimensions of Time
  • Episode 3 - The Search
  • Episode 4 - The Final Phase

Set in a space museum on the planet Xeros, the serial has the time traveller the First Doctor (William Hartnell) and his travelling companions Ian Chesterton (William Russell), Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill), and Vicki (Maureen O'Brien) looking for a way to change their fate after seeing themselves turned into museum exhibits in the future.

The lot also includes Series 6X - The Mark of Rani, dated November 1984.

When is the auction?

The auction will take place on Tuesday 12th March at 10am GMT - with live online bidding available and in person at Gorringe’s auction house, Lewes.
