Doctor Who

Dennis Spooner personal script - The Romans



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

From the 1965 serial The Romans starring William Hartnell as The Doctor this is an original camera script for episode three entitled Conspiracy. The script comprises of 61 pages printed on cream coloured paper in addition to a  three page running order and a further page detailing the cast, extras and technical requirements 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 early days of this classic science fiction series.
