A 'Doctor Who' costume auctioned in aid of Children in Need has sold for £50,000
Matt Smith's 'Doctor Who' costume has sold for £50,000.
Final bidding on the outfit - which included a tweed jacket, shirt, black jeans, black boots, braces, bow-tie and a watch worn in the episode 'The Doctor's Wife' - and a script signed by the actor closed at the staggering sum on Monday (22.11.11), with proceeds going to Children In Need.
Of the auction, Matt said: "I'd say the tweed jacket or the bow tie are the most iconic - although the boots are my personal favourite. I hope people donate generously for BBC Children in Need because it's a wonderful cause."
In the episode in which he wore the attire, the Doctor's TARDIS was transported into the body of a woman, portrayed by Suranne Jones.
The auction of the Doctor's clothes, and a copy of the script written by showrunner Stephen Moffat were part of BBC Children in Need's Once in a Lifetime online auction being held at www.bbc.co.uk/Pudsey.
