Doctor Who (1970's), Mutant helmet

original movie costume

This helmet was worn by one of Varan's henchmen in the 1972 Doctor Who story "The Mutants" and can be clearly seen on screen.  The helmet is made of rubber painted black with leather and foam padding. As was the custom for the BBC at the time, it was used in several shows and slight alterations made. The horns are regrettably lost and the top circle no longer has the emblem it once did, but this helmet has survived 50 years and is in very good condition for its age. This is a lovely piece from a great story featuring Jon Pertwee as The Doctor and its remarkable in many ways, when one considers how the show was made make then and how props and costumes were treated, that we still have it as a relic of this golden age of Classic Who.
