Yesterday the collection that the BBC had sent to Auction at Bonhams went under the Hammer.
The Torchwood SUV went for 18,000 pound Sterling and Jackson Lakes Costume Brought in 3,120 Pounds.
A full list of what each individual piece Brought can be Found at the end of this Piece though a Link to the Bonhams Website.
It should be also noted that the two Planet of the Dead red Busses were removed before the Auction began, which makes me wonder what the BBC has planed for those.
