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.
