Footnotes

  • It is believed that the skirt section of this lot is the oldest surviving screen used Dalek prop.

    Thought to have been acquired by the BBC from the film company Aura after completion of 'Dr. Who And The Daleks', the Dalek was then used during the 1965 William Hartnell era story 'The Chase'. Subsequently, the piece was altered for exhibition purposes, including the removal of the back section.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note: This lot is sold on the condition that it will not be used for commercial purposes without the consent of the BBC. If sold subsequently, any contract for that sale must impose a similar condition on the subsequent purchaser.
