A Doctor Who fan has splashed out £10,000 for a Tardis used by former Time Lord Christopher Eccleston.

The prop was expected to reach about £8,000 in the Bonham's sale but after a fierce bidding war it fetched £10,800.

A Tardis model made for an exhibition sold for £900 and a Cyberman helmet from 1967 went for £7,800 at the same auction.

As well as these, two Daleks from the 1960s fetched £4,800 each.

The current series of Doctor Who, starring Matt Smith, concludes on Saturday.
