Forbidden Goodies

Just hitting the pages of Forbidden Planet are three new collectibles ready to be squeezed onto your Christmas list.

Doctor Who t-shirtsAnd top of that list should be the fabulous ‘Blue Box Exploding’ poster. Based on the last post-impressionistic painting of Vincent Van Gogh- an image he received from 102 AD Stonehenge. Oh, okay its an image from The Pandorica Opens but its a beautiful gift for yourself and can be pre-ordered from 18th November for just £3.99.

If you fancy something a little more sartorially elegant then slip into either a classic Tardis T-shirt or a Cyberman ‘breakout’  T-shirt to deck you hols in. Both are available from the 20th December and can be pre-ordered for £14.99.

And if that wasn’t enough from the planet known as Forbidden, heading to their London Megastore, Peri Brown herself Nicola Byrant and partner Nev Fountain (Dead Ringers, Have I Got News For You) will be signing ‘The Mervyn Stone Mysteries’.

From Big Finish the tales are a mix of comic detective fiction and cheesy old sci-fi TV shows described by the Tenth Doctor himself David Tennant as:

‘Fiendish and funny, Columbo meets Blake’s 7 with gags – and sex!’

The novels follow the life of Mervyn Stone, former script editor of “Vixens from the Void”, a science fiction TV show from the 1980s. Mervyn now spends his time going to conventions, doing DVD commentaries… and solving murders.

The signing will take place Thursday 25th November at 18:00.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
