Screen worn 5th Doctor costumes -
Silurian special

That Silurian Right Arm and Chest is back on eBay - yet again!

It original sold in May last year, and was re-listed a couple of months later, failing to find a buyer.

Warriors Of The Deep
Silurian right arm and chest

You are bidding on part of a original Silurian costume ie the front part of the right Arm and Chest, but not the back part of the costume. This was part of the Silurian body suit worn on-screen by Norman Comer playing the lead role of Ichtar in the 1984 Doctor Who story Warriors Of The Deep.

This Silurian right arm and chest is part of the Silurian body suit sold in Bonhams Doctor Who sale in 1991. The costume had the name of the actor "Norman Comer" written in which is the name of the leader ichta. This part of the costume has the actor's name written in.

This is an amazing piece and is in its original condition, the arm has lost some reptilian latex skin.

I only know of two surviving silurians costumes from the entire history of the original dr who series - this part of the costume is from one of them.
