Footnotes

  • This was originally sold in these rooms as lot 140, 23rd June 2010, when it was described as having been made for exhibition purposes. Since purchased, further research by the vendor indicates this was actually the Dalek destroyed in the Totter's Lane junkyard by Ace's Nitro-9 explosives, then loaded onto Ratcliffe's lorry and later seen in his office. It is constructed from fibreglass with bolt-on hemispheres consistent with all the 'jelly mould' Imperial Daleks made for the story.

    Examination of the destroyed Dalek shows marks to the hemispheres and elswhere that closely match that used in the production. Some of the hemispheres are now fixed in a slightly different way from how they appear on screen due to becoming loose and being tightened back into a different position over the years.

    According to information from the vendor, after the production the top was redressed and repainted for exhibition use and further distressed with new foam detailing as well as new paint, with lights mounted underneath for exhibition purposes. Certain other details match it to the prop that appears in the office, most notably the box iron on the top. The prop appeared in several exhibitions over the years, most notably at Llangollen and the recently-closed Blackpool exhibition.
