Just hitting the pages of Forbidden Planet are three new collectibles ready to be squeezed onto your Christmas list.
And top of that list should be the fabulous ‘BlueÂ 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 fromÂ 18th November for just Â£3.99.
If you fancyÂ something a little more sartorially elegant then slip into either a classic Tardis T-shirt or a Cyberman ‘breakout’ Â T-shirt to deck you hols in. Both are available from the 20th December and can be pre-ordered for Â£14.99.
And if that wasn’t enough from the planet known as Forbidden, heading to their LondonÂ 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 theÂ tales are a mix ofÂ comic detectiveÂ fiction andÂ cheesy old sci-fi TV shows described by the Tenth Doctor himself David Tennant as:
â€˜Fiendish and funny, Columbo meets Blake’s 7 with gags â€“ and sex!â€™
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.
