The winning nominations for a limited edition collection of images from Doctor Who have been unveiled by Classic Stills.
Earlier this year the Los Angeles and London-based publisher of rare and iconic photographs invited fans to suggest which classic Doctor Who scene or moment they would most like to hang on their wall.
The scene most requested by fans was from Series 2, Episode 13: ‘Doomsday’, where the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant, says goodbye to Rose Tyler, played by Billie Piper, on Bad Wolf Bay. Tom Baker’s scene where he asks, “Do I have the right?” as he considers destroying the Daleks, was also heavily nominated.
Working with BBC Studios Americas, the firm is offering the collection to mark the 55th anniversary of Doctor Who’s initial broadcast.
The collection includes images from the BBC Photo Archive that have been rescanned in ‘ultra-high definition’ from the original negatives for the first time. These include photographs from the very first season aired in 1963, and iconic moments such as the Cybermen walking outside St. Paul’s Cathedral, London taken in 1968.
125 individually-numbered prints of each photo are available, with each sold hand-framed and presented with a Certificate of Authenticity. Prices start from $149 / £125.
“Releasing the first collection of Doctor Who fine art prints is a historic moment for fans, and for the BBC,” said CEO Rene Freling.
“Some of the iconic photographs have been re-scanned to show a level of detail never seen before, making this a genuine visual feast for everyone who loves Doctor Who.”
The Doctor Who collection will be available for purchase in the US, Canada, UK and Ireland. For more information on Classic Stills and the Doctor Who collection, please visit https://classicstills.com/ and https://classicstills.co.uk/.
