Doctor Who

Dennis Spooner personal script - The Reign of Terror



An original script used in the production of the long running BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who.

From the 1964 serial The Reign of Terror this is an original camera script for episode six entitled Prisoners of Conciergerie. The script comprises of 49 pages printed on cream coloured paper in addition to a running order, cast list, technical requirements page with a front cover listing the various production staff and filming details. This was the personal script of noted series writer Dennis Spooner and originated from his personal collection before his death in 1986.

The script is printed on foolscap paper measuring approximately 13" x 8", the standard imperial paper size before A4 as we know it today. The script remains in excellent condition complete with its original binding pin and exhibits only minor edge wear from handling, overall very fine.

The rarity of original production material from the William Hartnell era cannot be overstated and this represents a desirable artefact from the first season of this classic science fiction series.
