1980 Argolian robe
from 'The Leisure Hive'

as worn by Tom Baker

Sarah and Matt have been collecting Doctor Who original props and costumes for over ten years now. They live in Surrey, about 30 miles out of London in the UK. They have amassed an extensive array of highly recognizable and prized items that include original props, costumes, scripts, merchandise and scenery.

For some four years the collection was displayed at Oaklands Park House along with a display of keyboard instruments. It was occassionally opened to the public or displayed at local fates, all the time raising money for the British Heart Foundation. However, due to a move of location the collection was placed into storage.

Here is a small sample of some of the exhibits from the collection.

1983-85 Dalek
these are the shoulder, neck and dome
sections from an original screen used
Dalek featured in 'Revelation of the
Daleks', however the dome has been
verified as almost certainly being the
one used in 'The Five Doctors'

1989 Dalek from
the Doctor Who stageplay
'The Ultimate Adventure'
the role of the Doctor was
played by Jon Pertwee and
later assumed by Colin Baker

The odd shape to the dalek props
was attributed to the angle they
would be viewed from by the audience
(or maybe they just used the Radio
Times plans when making them!!)

1987 map from 'Dragonfire'
hand drawn on parchment paper,
Dragonfire was the 150th Doctor Who story

1989 UNIT logo from 'Battlefield'
removed from a UNIT Land Rover

Police Box childrens ride
as far as it is known this was not licensed as a BBC Doctor Who ride,
we do know that it was used along with a police car version at events
held by the police force (see small pic). It is hoped that in the future we will
be able to obtain a stand (a red moulded rocky surface) and motor.

  1980 Target novel cover for 'Doctor Who and the Stones of Blood'
by Andrew Skilleter, this was his third cover for a novelisation. Done in the
style of the original Achilleos covers, Skilleter disliked these white-background
vignettes as he felt they were unhelpful to his style and limited the impact of
the cover. (note the illustration features the druidic robe)

  1983 Target novel cover for 'The Five Doctors'
by Andrew Skilleter, this illustration featured on the twentieth anniversary
special edition and was number 81 in the Doctor Who library. The original
cover’s background was reflective silver leaf.

"I was asked to feature the profiles of all five Doctors together with the
hint of a possible sixth. They had to be shadowy but recognisable. To
compound the problem, there was no firm information on the content of
this upcoming TV special, so in the segments of the illustration we featured
some obvious Doctor Who favourites, which fortunately were featured
in the show."
Andrew Skilleter, writing in Blacklight


    1979 costume design for
'The Horns of Nimon'

by June Hudson

The bull's head was originally supposed to be some sort of helmet hiding the Nimons true appearance, however due to budget restrictions the decision was made to leave it as the monsters actual head.
