Original 5th Doctor items on eBay -
May 2015

This is a rather nice item that’s for sale on eBay at the moment. Bit better than anything in the Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia sale this summer.

Earthshock Earth Troopers Helmet

Doctor Who Earthshock (1982) Original Production Earth Troopers Helmet

An original Earth Troopers helmet worn on screen in Earthshock (1982) starring Peter Davison as the Doctor.

The helmet is made from fibreglass. This helmet is still in it's original condition, hasn't been repainted like other helmets that where used in another Doctor Who story. This Trooper helmet still has the original lights in the sides, also has the cradle inside that goes around the actor's head. The helmet is still in a lovely screen used condition !

I only know of a few of these's helmet out there, a very rare Doctor Who prop.

Comes with display stand.

Symphonic Spectacular “in doubt” -
thanks Captain Jack!

Like a lot of Doctor Who fans, I’m booked to see the first performance of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular this weekend at the SSE Wembley Arena.

I booked my tickets way back in July, so it’s been a long time coming but suddenly it’s barely a day away.

So imagine my shock to see the front page of today’s Sun newspaper.

I relates a story that the live semi finals of Britain’s Got Talent are in doubt due to the discovery of an unexploded Second World War bomb beneath a nearby car park!

Before needing to read beyond the headline I happened to know that they shoot at a studios in Wembley, not far from the Stadium and Arena - so if Britain’s Got Talent is affected, then you can guarantee its gonna have an effect on the concert at the Wembley Arena too!

If you look on their aerial map, the Wembley Arena is the squarish building halfway between the BOMB FOUND HERE and the WEMBLEY STADIUM, slightly to the left.

Some further online research turned up the venue’s Twitter feed, which wasn’t too optimistic of my chances of seeing the concert this weekend.

We shall see.....

For some reason I now can’t get a picture of Captain Jack Harkness out of my mind!
