Bargain Hunt searches for ‘Doctor Who’ gems

Best on the Box choice for November 16th…

It’s a space and time anniversary special for the antique search, buy and auction series.

Eric Knowles grabs his scarf and sonic screwdriver to present a special episode to mark the 60th anniversary of Britain’s time lord action-adventure show, Doctor Who.

After encountering a Dalek and escaping into a TARDIS, Eric is transported to a Carmarthen antiques fair where he meets two teams of die-hard fans, each hoping to exterminate their competitors and find some stellar bargains. Their companions for the day are experts Richard Madley and Kate Bliss, both dressed as two well-known Doctors.

But which team will win the cosmic battle to make the biggest profit at auction? Eric also chats to a super-fan with an extraordinary and valuable collection of original Doctor Who props, some of which date back to the show’s early days – including alien outfits, Cybermen masks and of course a dreaded Dalek.

As for the science fiction drama itself, it returns to BBC One in the UK on Saturday, 25th November with the first of three Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials, taking viewers on an otherworldly adventure in space and time each Saturday. The first story is The Star Beast; the Doctor and Donna come face to face after all these years, but just how, and why, is about to be revealed.

The second 60th anniversary special, Wild Blue Yonder, airs on Saturday, 2nd December. The Giggle completes the trio of anniversary specials and will air on BBC One on Saturday, 9th December. David Tennant and Catherine Tate lead cast including, Yasmin Finney, Miriam Margolyes, Jacqueline King, Karl Collins, Ruth Madeley, Jemma Redgrave and Neil Patrick Harris.
