Doctor Who: 5 Most Ridiculously Expensive Doctor Who Items on Amazon

Doctor Who and the Pescatons CD
Price: $3,192.69

Although Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann have all thrown themselves into performing audio stories with tremendous gusto, Tom Baker has always been a little reticent to join in the fun. He's done a few for Big Finish, but way back in 1976 Baker and Elizabeth Sladen agreed to record a radio play recorded and released by Argo Records.

It's a strange story... one of the few told from a first-person perspective and the only one done so by The Doctor until David Tennant did "Dead Air". It also has a weird bit of retconning in it, with The Doctor attempting to question a baby who he says won't talk, correcting Sarah Jane who says the baby can't talk.

In a weird twist the original Argo CD release is usually much more reasonable, around $40. The BBC Audio re-release is the one that costs more than a community college education.

The Two Doctors Special Edition
Price: $3,708.30

The Sixth Doctor and Peri have to come to the rescue of the Second Doctor and Jamie, but if you want to see how it all plays out get ready to spend some serious money. The other two multi-Doctor specials are available on Netflix streaming, but the final one of the classic series will set you back almost $200 for a used copy, and for a new copy nearly $4,000. Even on eBay copies sell for around $700. Ironically, this makes Colin Baker one of the most valuable Doctors... which is a little mind-boggling.

Also, just a little side note. Frazer Hines told Houston audiences at last year's Comicpalooza that he regrets not asking showrunner John Nathan Turner if he could rejoin the Tardis crew full time after being featured once again as the Second Doctor's companion and getting along so well with Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant in "The Two Doctors". He's certain Turner would have said yes, and considers it a missed opportunity.

The Complete Davros Collection
Price: $7,421.98

Davros is one of the longest and most iconic enemies of The Doctor, and in 2007 a massive, limited edition box set containing all the appearances of the Dalek creator was released to celebrate the character. It's a truly amazing collection, too. Not only does it feature every television adventure from "Genesis of the Daleks" to "Remembrance of the Daleks", but also another disc contains three Big Finish audio stories, the complete run of the "I, Davros" series, and an exclusive audio release "The Davros Mission". Only 10,000 were released, and if you want one you'll have to pony up almost eight grand to seller Worldwide Books and Movies.

Granted, you could buy the parts individually for less than $200, but you'd be missing out on the neat little book showing Davros' chronology that comes with it. Surely that's worth $7,200 extra.

Jef has a new story, a tale of headless strippers and The Rolling Stones, available now in Broken Mirrors, Fractured Minds. You can also connect with him on Facebook.
