I'm sad to report that Peter Miles passed away last week, at the age of 89.
Most of us will know him from his numerous rolls in Doctor Who and Blakes'7, most notably as Nyder (Davros's sidekick) in the classic Doctor Who story "Genesis of the Daleks".
“I left my world,
To wander in, this endless midnight sky,
For space is just a starry night,
Where no suns ever rise...”
Here's a few photos of the original prop of Dayna's harp from the season 3 episode Sarcophagus.

Here's an original gun from Doctor Who, Tom Baker era.
It's Shapp's gun from The Armageddon Factor, the last story from The Key to Time season.

When Shapp walks into the...

Know idea what it's going to be like, but thought I'd give you the heads up.
Sorry to be the one to tell you this.
Last October Paul had a aurtic anurism (may have spelt that wrong)

Hope all had a good Xmas Day.
Just watching the reruns of the Back to the Future films on ITV (in the UK).
Apparently, in a few days time in 2015, we will be all driving hover cars and boards, we are still using CRT TV's, and have invisible dog walkers...
And we don't have the...

Sad to report that Lynda died in her husbands arms yesterday.
She had been suffering from colon cancer for a year and hoped to see her last Christmas with her family. she was only 66.

Here's an original Liberator Ball/Engine that was made at the time of the show at BBC Visual Effects Department, but never used !!

I always remembered this from my youth. It's Captain Kremmen from the 1978 Kenny Everett show.
There was a model spaceship used very quickly, but is so obvious what kit it was made from.
Have a look at this, the model is right at the beginning of the clip.
If you guess it within 2...

I've got a Tom Baker version, so I thought I'll use that.
I just used tape, so it can all be removed.
And was quite happy with the result. :)
Then I thought she should have an...

Here's some pics of an original gas mask from Doctor Who.
It needs a little tlc (refurb) but not much.
I always thought they were made from a Russian gas mask.
But they are not, they are properly moulded from latex, the front bit is just a bean tin, cut down...

The other day I was looking through a cupboard and found an interesting prop.
