Bonhams auction - 18th December 2013

With December looming, it is time for another Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia sale!

The past few auctions have been Doctor Who lite when it comes to items, so there is no surprise that the first post-Anniversary is brimming with costumes and nick backs, dating back to 1968.

As usual I have separated the items by Doctor era, and you can see the rest of the items here:
Here are just the lots relating to the Second Doctor era
Lot 172
DOCTOR WHO / PATRICK TROUGHTON: DOCTOR WHO AND THE DOMINATORS,
1968 - Three Rehearsal Scripts, from the collection of episode writer Henry Lincoln, mimeographed typed pages, Episodes 1, 2 and 5, with some pencil annotations, 8 x 13 inches (20x33cm).

FOOTNOTES
Henry Lincoln (born Henry Soskin) is an English author, famed for his co-author ship of the book 'The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail'.

'The Dominators' was broadcast as five episodes during August - September 1968. Henry Lincoln and Mervyn Haisman requested their writing credit for this series of episodes to be removed, due to their dissatisfaction with the eventual production, the reduction in the number of episodes (from five to six), the ending being written without consultation and the licensing agreement for the 'Quarks' characters.

The episode is therefore credited as 'Norman Ashby'.'The Dominators' was the final series of episodes written for Doctor Who by the pair.
