The script for Peter Capaldi’s last regular episode as the Twelfth Doctor is being auctioned for charity – and is signed by numerous members of the cast and crew.
The screenplay was donated by Mark Gatiss (The Idiot’s Lantern; Cold War), who appears as a First World War officer in Twice Upon A Time, to the Hollywood Charity Horse Show. This charity was set up by William Shatner (yes, that one) to raise money for children’s and veterans’ charities in the Los Angeles area.
The silent auction is ongoing, and ends next month (November 2017). At the time of writing, the script’s more than surpassed $1000, so by the time it concludes, expect the winner to be paying a huge price. At the moment, it’s the most expensive thing in the catalogue, and we suspect it’ll maintain this accolade throughout.
There’s one caveat, however: the winner won’t receive the item until after Christmas Day!

Interestingly, the script appears to be signed by Nick Briggs, who isn’t confirmed as being in the episode yet, but it’s expected he provides the voice of the Cybermen in any revisited scenes from The Tenth Planet. It’s also signed by Peter Capaldi (the Twelfth Doctor), David Bradley (the First Doctor), and writer, Steven Moffat.
You’ll also find an 8×10″ print of the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond, signed by the respective actors, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.
Other items being auctioned include an autograohed X-Files photo of Mulder and Skully, props from Preacher, and a Daredevil print signed by Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Wilson Fisk in the Marvel Netflix original.
Check out all items in the silent auction, and if you win the script, do let us know please!
