Footnotes

  • During these episodes, the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) and Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) were kidnapped to the "Games Station" on Satellite 5, and forced to participate in an apparently lethal TV game shows. The satellite and the games themselves proved to be an elaborate cover for the machinations of the mad Dalek Emperor, which had survived the Last Great Time War and was 'harvesting' humans for conversion into new Daleks in order to rebuild its race. Surrounded by The Emperor's Dalek minions and faced with utter defeat, the Doctor was rescued unexpectedly by Rose, but in circumstances which led inexorably to his regeneration into his eleventh incarnation (David Tennant).

    The Dalek was won by the current owner in the "Win a Dalek" competition* in the edition of Radio Times covering the period 17-30th December, 2005. The Dalek then remained on loan to the BBC for further usage.

    It was a condition of the competition disposal of this screen-used item that it must be used for personal home display only; any and all commercial use was prohibited expressly and it is a condition of this sale that those same terms apply.
