Doctor Who Memorabilia Sales Soar on Ebay!
Auction site eBay has reported that sales of Doctor Who memorabilia have soared Peter Capaldi was announced as Matt Smith’s successor.
According to their records, sales of souvenirs relating to Matt Smith have increased by 80%, but he remains in second place, behind the most popular Time Lord of all, when it comes to merchandise – Capaldi’s fellow Scot, David Tennant.
Whether or not you choose to see this as a sign that others are desperately buying up all the memories they can before Peter Capaldi arrives and ruins it all or that, filled with love for the show, fans who had no Capaldi-based merchandise to snap up (there are still copies of John & Yoko: A Love Story still available…think about that) bought everything in sight to express their love in a monetised fashion, is entirely down to you.
If you’re interested in Doctor Who memorabilia, the Twitter account @eBayWho features a number of rarities that are listed each week on the popular auction site.
