Going Once, Going Twice… Doctor Who Up For Auction!

CybermanHere's your chance to own a piece of history or future as it may be in Doctor Who: The Auction at Bonhams. While this is not the first time we have seen Doctor Who props and costumes being auctioned at Bonhams, this has to one of the largest we have seen.

MalusEverything from a Cyberman (left) seen in The Five Doctors to the bus in Planet of the Dead are up for grabs. The auction items are mostly costumes (wardrobe and alien costumes with masks) and related props, be it the 10th Doctor's formal wear from Voyage of the Damned to the Magma beast from The Caves of Androzani. Even the Malus (right) is up for grabs from The Awakening and a Doctor Who auction wouldn't be complete without a Dalek or two. All authentic BBC items used on screen from the long running series.

It is a shame that all of these items are not going into a museum as a collection for all to enjoy. We can only hope that they will find homes that will take care of each piece. Viewings for interested bidders will take place between Sunday 21 February and Wednesday 24 February 2010.

First Three Episode Titles for Series 31

The first three episode titles of Series 31 (2010 series) has been revealed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine according to a story by Digital Spy today. 

Those who may consider episode titles as spoilers, read no further.

The first episode featuring the 11th Doctor is appropriately named 'The Eleventh Hour' followed by the episode, 'The Beast Below.' Both are written by series executive producer and lead writer, Steven Moffat.

The third episode is titled 'Victory of the Daleks' written by Mark Gatiss (writer of the 9th Doctor story, 'Unquiet Dead' and actor in the title role in the 10th Doctor episode, 'The Lazarus Experiment').

Bill Nighy in Doctor Who

Bill NighyAs we tweeted a couple days ago, Bill Nighy (Slartibartfast in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)) is to guest star in an episode of Doctor Who according to Digital Spy.

He is playing the part of a curator of an exhibition of Vincent van Gogh. It is episode 10 in Series 31, written by Richard Curtis (The Black Adder, Mr. Bean). 

Digital Spy reports that a 'set insider' told them, "It was a real coup to get Bill Nighy in Doctor Who, especially in Richard Curtis's amazing episode. Bill plays a van Gogh expert with some similar fashion choices to The Doctor himself."

It is said that this story is to take place in 19th century France as well as present day.

Winter/Spring BBC Highlights Include the Return of Doctor Who, Billie Piper, Christopher Eccleston, Ashes to Ashes, and Being Human

The BBC Press Office revealed their highlights for Winter/Spring for BBC Drama which includes rock stars, Time Lords, and vampires.

Christopher Eccleston as John Lennon

While we are eager to see The Doctor return in the form of Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor this spring when Doctor Who returns, he won't be the only actor to play the Time Lord returning. Christopher Eccleston returns to the BBC in a biopic for BBC Four titled, Lennon Naked which charts the musician from his transition from The Beatles to the enduring and enigmatic icon.

It's Series 31 or 1, not 5 says Steven Moffat

In a recent DWIN blog post, it quotes Steven Moffat, new series Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who speaking of the upcoming series for the year 2010 (Matt Smith's first series as the 11th Doctor) in the latest issue of Doctor Who Monthly magazine:

"It’s Series Thirty-One of Doctor Who, and it's Series One of Matt Smith's Doctor, Those are both real numbers. I submit that 'Series Five of Doctor Who' means absolutely nothing unless you really believe that Matt Smith is the third Doctor. Everyone knows he's the Eleventh Doctor so that means it’s definitely not 'Series Five'. Whichever number you choose, 'Series Five' is the one that's flawed."

"'Series One' is an exciting sentence. 'Series Thirty-One' is an awe-inspiring sentence. 'Series Five' is a boring sentence - and also a complete lie."
