On 14th October 2018 the Doctor Who Appreciation Society and Ealing Studios unveiled a blue heritage plaque honouring William Hartnell. This is on display at Ealing Studios in West London, the funds having been raised by fans.
DWAS produced a limited run of 20 mini-plaques. These are interior wall mountable and are approx 300mm diameter. Of those 20 plaques only 3 remain and these have been signed by those guests who attended the unveiling. Each of these 3 plaques has a numbered DWAS Certificate of Authenticity attached to the rear.
This auction is for mini plaque number 1 of 3.
The guests who have each signed the plaque are:
Ian Cullen, Peter Craze,
William Russell, Carole Ann Ford,
Frank Skinner, Timothy Combe,
Michael Imison, Julian Glover,
Frank Williams, Shane Rimmer,
and members of the Carney family:
Anne Carney (nee Hartnell), Jessica Carney, Cathy Carney, Paul Carney
The mini-plaques are sold in aid of the Society's 'Plaque Fund'. This funds the full size plaque, the installation and the unveiling ceremony/reception. Any surplus will be donated to a charity chosen by the Carney family.
