WOW! That’s pretty much all I can say. This truly is going to be The Greatest Dr Who Auction in the Galaxy, my only regret is that it is so far away! Arriving in the post this morning from one of my newest supporters were four, that’s right count them… FOUR original Shooting Scripts from Dr Who. Ranging across Series 3 & 4, they include some iconic episodes of the modern series, and have been very kindly donated by Stunt Coordinator Abbi Collins, who has signed each of the scripts on the cover along with director Graeme Harper (who is the only director to have been involved in both the classic and modern series).
It goes without saying, I am DELIGHTED with these donations, and know that they will raise loads when the auction takes place. Pictured first is the script for Series 3 Episode 7 (best known as “42”), while next is Series 4 Episode 7 aka “The Unicorn & The Wasp” and the third is labelled Series 4 Episode 2, though the final running order has “Planet of the Ood” as episode 3. The last one is my favourite, simply because it is one of the best episodes of the series to date.
As you can see in the picture to the right (which shows the moment the Dalek strikes the Doctor as he runs to meet Rose) each page has the official watermarks in place, and each script is complete from start to finish.
As a final bonus, Abbi was also awesome enough to supply this signed a3 poster of David Tennant as The Tenth Doctor, a brilliant addition to the auctions.
