Auctioned Going... Going... Gone!
In April Rowley Fine Art

stage play, an original Sea Devil costume and an Ice
The Ice Warrior armor was listed as being the original
fiberglass costume worn by Bernard Bresslaw in The Ice Warriors, with what looks like a newly created helmet and latex mask. The
costume was also once part of a Doctor Who exhibition. The piece was valued at over
After the auction the Dalek was listed as sold, but no
information was given about the Sea Devil or the Ice Warrior. Rowley has since had several
auctions, but neither costume was listed.
The costume was finally sold to Matt
Parish, a collector in Surrey, for under £1000.
Parish plans to put the Warrior on display in a private museum alongside other Doctor Who
monsters including a Dalek, a Cyberman and a Plasmaton in "scenes
reminiscent of the items being displayed ." Costumes and props from the series
will also be featured.
Parish hopes to open the museum for limited
public viewings by summer 2002. A website is also planned. For more information email Matt Parish.
