The rescued script for first Doctor Who episode could sell for up to £7,000...<br />
<br />
The script for the very first Doctor Who episode that was rescued from a skip 50 years ago has emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
The owner was eight years old and a huge Doctor Who fan when his grandfather gave him the rare piece of memorabilia.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.
