Bonhams auction - 12th December 2012
As usual Doctor Who gets a look in, with a range of eras represented, including a stunningly colourful poster for the second Peter Cushing Dalek film, Daleks Invasion Earth 2150AD.
But the main items on offer cover the now finished spin-off series, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Since both these series had the bulk of their runs alongside the Tennant era, I have listed them in my Coat blog.
Here are the only items relating to the Matt Smith era, one of which is from his guest appearance on The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Daleks Invasion Earth 2150, British Lion Films, 1966, British ABC Cinema quad poster, with overlaid snipe for 'Indian Paint', 30 x 40 inches (76x102cm)
Estimate: £500 - 700
Sold for £625
Doctor Who - A Chrismas Carol, December 2010: A foam latex model of a shark, to scale, overpainted, on wood and metal stand, accompanied by another fin, the shark - 104 x 60 inches (360x152cm)
Sold for £875
The episode features Matt Smith as the Doctor with Michael Gambon and Katherine Jenkins in supporting roles. The 'Christmas Carol' inspired story has a shark as a major feature of the plot.
The Sarah Jane Adventures, Series 4 - Death of the Doctor: A Shansheeth part costume, 2010, comprising: a full length long-sleeved purple velvet robe with Velco to back; purple plush velvet cape and sleeves, with further velvet collar, boot covers together with large black net petticoat, labelled 'Paul' and undergarments with original BBC stock numbers

'Death of the Doctor' is one of only two episode of the SJA to feature Matt Smith as the Doctor. The Shansheeth are a species of Vulture type creatures.
