    I would love the buy the Tardis my self. But I had dream of my own TARDIS, & you can’t guess what it was. A Brtish Bus Double Decker. It contains 40 rooms beside the TARDIS controller. The rest is tomuch to tell.

    So were all these items in the hands of private collectors or are the BBC auctioning them off? Seems a shame to me that the BBC would have sold off some of their Doctor Who props to private buyers. I really think it shows a lack of foresight on their behalf. These props might be needed for future episodes, so why not put them into storage or circulate them around the country in museums and exhibitions until needed? George Lucas wisely saved virtually all the props, costumes, creature masks, puppets, model miniatures and production art from the Star Wars films and these are used on exhibition tours and were used all manner of ways to create the prequel trilogy. Somewhere down the line Doctor Who writers are going to need the old stuff back for particular storylines and they won’t have it. The show is subject to budget cuts every year, creative visions will be compromised and part of that problem will be down to the fact that the BBC sold useful items with a history to the show.
