Original 6th Doctor items on eBay -
February 2014

This item was original in a Bonhams auction back in 1991, lot 106.

The original lot consisted on a dozen costumes, with masks included.

I’m not sure how much that lot sold for, but this single gown did pretty well.

surgical gown

An original Dr Who costume from the 1986 episode ‘Mindwarp’.

I bought it in 1992 from John Fitton Books and Magazines but I think it was originally part of lot 106 from the 1992 Bonhams auction, which I was lucky enough to attend.

I do not have the surgical mask and I don’t know if this one was actually worn by Colin Baker.

For the love of Six

The Sixth Doctor’s costume is undoubtedly the most divisive of all the looks he has worn in the last 50 years.

That said, there is still a lot of love for the multi-coloured, eye-bleeding ensemble, and various people skilled in Photoshop are keen to share it around.

 I came across this on Facebook one day, and it made me smile how the colours of the original costume had been applied to Matt’s outfit.

Not to be out-done, the fans of Nine have also taken on board the colour scheme of the classic series Doctor, creating this fetching leather version.

It’s nice that the leather has just had the colour applied and no pattern (such as the check or the tartan) have been included.

And even the latest appearance of the Eight Doctor in Night Of The Doctor hasn’t escaped the application of a bit of colour.

I particularly like how the gaiters become the spats and the shirt cuff sort of become the yellow coat cuffs.

Credit goes to all those un-named creative Who fans for making these fun images

Gallifrey One 2014 - meeting The Doctor

Since making my Ultimate Six Frock Coat I have met Colin Baker twice in my costume: briefly at Motor Mouth and again at more length at Nor-Con.

Colin was forgiven for thinking I was wearing a Cloth Ears coat, as he wasn’t aware of the work I was doing.

But this time at Gallifrey One Colin not only remembered my coat - he remembered my name!

I had two photoshoots with Colin: one on my own; and one with a client of mine who wanted me in the photo too.
