Nick Robatto, one of the principal prop makers working on Doctor Who since its return in 2005, has set up his own online store where you’ll be able to buy a variety of Doctor Who related replica props and other goodies.
Robatto’s new company will supply Dalek Death Ray Stalks, River Song’s Squareness Gun, Captain Jack’s Sonic Blaster and other delights such as TARDIS console plaques, Gallifreyan symbol coasters and even Sonic Screwdriver holders!
As well as Doctor Who, Robatto has also worked on The Sarah Jane Adventures, Torchwood, Merlin and Wizards vs Aliens, the chances are that if you’ve watched BBC television in the last eight years then you will have seen his work. Some of his more recent designs that you may recognise include the Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver and the new TARDIS console.
The finished articles are a labour of love and the replicas themselves look absolutely fantastic, worthy of any fans hard earned money. However, due to the nature of the work, the replicas do not come at a cheap price, so make sure that you’re prepared before you decide whereabouts you would like to show off your Gallifreyan coasters.
