Original 6th Doctor items on eBay -
November 2013

It’s not often something worn in a Sixth Doctor serial comes up on eBay, so I thought it worth double mentioning this costume.

Original made for The Deadly Assassin, it also put in an appearance in The Trial Of A time Lord.

Trial Of A Time Lord
Pink Time Lord Robes

Rare Original classic BBC TV Doctor Who Time Lord costume prop Bonhams 2010

This costume was purchased initially from the famous Bonhams Doctor Who Auction sale in February 2010.

The Bonhams Catalogue listing for this item reads:

24 Feb 2010 14:00 GMT London, Knightsbridge
Doctor Who: The Auction - Costumes and Props from the BBC Archive

The Deadly Assassin, October 1976
A Time Lord Robe,
of pink coloured, heavy cotton mix fabric, with pleated sleeves and front


N.B: A friend has advised me that this costume was also used in the 1986 season story; ‘The Trial of a Timelord’ in the courtroom scenes set on Gallifrey and provided me with a snapshot from this.

Purchase History:
Originally sold at Bonhams in February 2010.
Costume comes fully authenticated with certificate of authenticity from original buyer.
There is a tag supplied with the costume, indicating the lot number from the original sale.
(I am very reluctantly parting with it to make room and funds for new arrival!)

Very good condition considering its age; there is no visible damage to the fabric, no rips, tears or holes. There is some production wear to the robe, this is in the form of some slight dirt marks and scuffing to the hem where the long train has trailed along the studio floor.

The costume has been carefully stored since purchase.

This is a one-off piece of Doctor Who ‘history’ in its 50th Anniversary year!

(Please note: the mannequin display stand in the photos is not included).
