Quite a few readers probably weren’t around in 1990 when the collecting world was still reliatively young. Here is a video from the Bonhams auction in London where costumes from Hitchikers guide, Starcops, Blakes 7, Blackadder, Doctor Who and so many more BBC TV costumes were sold.
Costumes included the following:
Its amazing to think that most of the Blakes 7 costumes in private hands came from this auction, and one a year later. Quite a number were purchased by myself at that time and sold in the years after the auction.
Of all the amazing cotumes at the event the Zaphod costume from Hitchikers guide was amazing….I still kick myself for letting the newspaper outbid me on that piece. That and this….Romana from “Destiny of the Daleks”
