IMC communicator - Colony in Space
An original prop used in the production of the long running BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who.
From the 1971 serial Colony in Space starring Jon Pertwee as The Doctor this is an original communicator as seen used by the crew of the Interplanetary Mining Corporation (IMC). This prop was custom fabricated by noted BBC Visual Effects Department designer Ian Scoones who worked as assistant on this serial under department co-founder Bernard Wilkie, constructed largely from wood the prop features an opening ear piece which hinges on a concealed pin with an aerial of wire and attached pin head, dressed with metallic plastic detailing and tape with two solid buttons and a clip to the rear recycled from a vintage pen.
The prop measures approximately 7" long when opened and remains in very good vintage screen used condition with some minor paint wear from handling and age, otherwise fine.
This represents an extremely rare example of an original custom built hand prop from the Jon Pertwee era of this cult science fiction series.
