Doctor Who Costumes at Bonhams Auctions

Bonhams will be auctioning a selection of "Doctor Who" costumes on December 15th 2011. The items of special interest to this blog are lots 185 - 191:

185 Four Smilers costumes from The Beast Below (400-500)
186 Four Winders part costumes from The Beast Below (250-350)
187 Guido's costume from The Vampires of Venice (600-700)
188 Vincent Van Gogh's costume from Vincent and the Doctor (350-450)
189 Dorium Maldovar's costume from The Pandorica Opens (250-350)
190 Rory's Wedding outfit from The Big Bang (400-600)
191 The Doctor's Wedding Guest outfit from The Big Bang (1200-1800)

Lot 191 - pictured above - is the most intriguing for me. Following the recent success of the Children in Need auction (£50,000) - surely the bidding will go higher than the estimated £1200 - £1800? The description for Lot 191 is:
Doctor Who - The Big Bang, 2010
Matt Smith as The Eleventh Doctor: A complete Wedding guest outfit, comprising:
a black satin 'Opera' type collapsible top hat, in original box, with black ribbon trim; a black tail coat, of wool with satin effect collar; a white waffle type waistcoat; a white shirt with waffle type front together with matching collar and bow-tie; a cream coloured silk scarf with tasselled edge; a pair of black tuxedo trousers, with matching braces and a pair of black size 10 men's shoes, together with the original costume returns bag

Well, we now know Matt Smith has size 10 shoes. You DO need to register with Bonhams in order to bid and the link is below. It's going to be interesting to track these lots and see what the winning bids are.
