M'boro priest selling collection that's out of this world

THE Daleks have issued a rumbling, gravel-voiced command: "Ex-term-in-ate Maryborough's Catholic priest's Doctor Who magazine and video collection."

"Oh dear, people will think I've finally lost it," Father Paul Kelly said, cautiously announcing the news he wanted to find "a perfect home" for his rare collection of the cult TV show's Doctor Who magazines and videos.

"It's my big secret. I've collected them since 1983 and they're in boxes in my carport and I have made a New Year's resolution to clear my clutter."

Father Kelly, 44, had been curious about Dr Who, he confesses, since he was a child.

"It wasn't until 1980 that I viewed the series with another new Dr Who, this time Peter Davison from All Creatures Great and Small, and I thought, 'wow, this is a bit special'."

The headlining priest's love affair with the 50-year-old British science fiction program has not faded.

He agreed it was time to let his rare collection go for a "best offer perhaps" but he will not part with his giant cardboard replica of the Tardis - a sentient, telepathic time-and-space-travel machine that flies through the time vortex but looks like a British police box, a common sight in Britain in 1963, when the BBC series first aired.
