Marking the upcoming auction of BBC Doctor Who memorabilia at the world-famous auction house later this month (24th February), the latest issue of Bonhams Magazine (Issue 21) features an engaging feature on the series by Benjamin Cook, alongside the publication's more regular fare of articles on antiques and art.
Titled "Who's in Town", the feature includes interview material with actors such as Peter Davison, citing the Cybermen as his favourite monsters, and other commentary on the show from Tom Baker, William Hartnell's widow, Heather and more, together with a fine selection of BBC publicity photographs of the show's many era.
Bonhams is the world's oldest and largest auctioneer of fine art and antiques still in British ownership and the archive of Bonhams Magazine available on this website goes back to the winter issue of 2007. Art historians, historians, and archaeologists will find fascinating articles in the aforementioned issue on craftsman Matthew Boulton, the mystery of the Brontë children, centuries-old dog collars, and the curse of Tutankhamun. Visitors will appreciate the photographs of the artworks and antiques, as they are very vivid and show great detail.
• The actual lots available in the auction have yet to be announced. The event details are here on the Bonhams web site, and the auction itself will be promoted via www.bonhams.com/drwho.
