MORE original 10th Doctor items on eBay!

We’re a couple of months into 2013 and some original Tenth Doctor items have started to appear on eBay.
A lot of props (rather than costumes) have been cropping up, many of which are not necessarily identified as screen-used. They are sometimes spares copies or it isn’t possible to specifically spot it in the episode.

I’ve therefore grouped some of them by episode and show them here more for reference than as individual items.

Here’s what I’ve found.

TARDIS console
Rotor locking mechanism

Here we have a pair of clear perspex locking mechanisms used for locking and suspending the tardis rotor throughout the first season of the new series starring Christopher Eccleston and the first episodes of David Tennant.

During filming of season two the console lighting bulbs were change and the heat from these new bulbs warped the perspex of the rotor resulting in a new one having to be made the old rotor went back to the company who made it from whom these two mechanisms were aquired., as you can see one of them has a slight bend in it again this is from the light bulbs.

An extremely rare opportunity to aquire a part of the Tardis console that was used in every Eccleston story and early Tennant.


Door Sign

Here we have a lovley screen used and matched door sign from the David Tennant story "Impossible Planet", this sign can clearly be seen when the Doctor and rose walk through the door.

As can be seen in the attached screen grab all the marks match up perfectly confirming this was the one used on screen. most of these signs were destroyed after filming making this a rare find.

BLINK props
Wallpaper from old house
Screen used wallpaper directly from the house used to film the best story of the modern Dr Who series which is now being redeveloped. This piece is 8 inches by 5 inches and has been intentionley weathered by the Dr who prop dept but also it has signs of decay from where it was attached to the wall of a damp empty house.The actual piece will differ slightly than the picture.
