The rescued script for first Doctor Who episode could sell for up to £7,000...
The script for the very first Doctor Who episode that was rescued from a skip 50 years ago has emerged for sale.
The 43-page document was owned by William Hartnell, the first actor ever to play the famous role, and still has his annotations on it.
The owner was eight years old and a huge Doctor Who fan when his grandfather gave him the rare piece of memorabilia.
He worked for a building company that had been clearing out and renovating Hartnell's former home in Mayfield, East Sussex, and found the script among the rubbish that was being thrown out.
The script has been given an estimate of £5,000 to £7,000 and will be sold by Dudley-based Aston's Auctioneers on May 3.
