In this anniversary year BBC Worldwide have opened the toy chest and unleashed its largest selection of Doctor Who merchandise ever!
From now until Christmas fans will be able to splurge on a whole host of items as vast as the universe itself.
At a press event yesterday, BBC Worldwide revealed just what fans might expect from the bearded one (no, not the Master) on December 25th. A Doctor Who onesie, TARDIS duvet cover, figurines of all shapes and sizes from the entire history of the show, and, for all your unblinking nightmares, a Weeping Angel costume complete with ‘horror mask’ are just some of the new items set to hit shelves – if they’re not already swelling there.
If you fancy something a little more cerebral than a screaming mask of utmost horror, don’t forget the specially made Doctor Who Risk set, and Trivial Pursuit board game to put your knowledge of the Doctor to the test.
Or if you just want something to mark the occasion this November how about framed collectors’ editions of the episode ‘movie posters’ and commemorative pictures of each of the actors to have played the Doctor.
However if you yourself want to play Doctor, that of course can be achieved in myriad different ways too.
The list goes on: from Lakeland there is a Doctor Who teapot, travel mug, a water bottle, a dressing gown with Tom Baker scarf pattern on the inside collar, a TARDIS cupcake kit, a Dalek cake stand…
In fact, it’d be easier to list what facet of everyday existence you can’t in some way accomplish adorned in Doctor Who garb. We’ll be taking a closer look at some of these items over the coming weeks…
