To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, The Daily Mirror has released a special magazine collecting together rarely-seen photos from their archives. It’s a surprisingly impressive collection and anyone particularly impressed can order prints from mirror-photos.co.uk.
The Doctors: The Archive features behind-the-scenes photos from serials like The Gunfighters, Terror of the Zygons, Delta and the Bannermen and Boom Town. There are also some lovely photos of the First Doctor in The Web Planet, the Third Doctor facing up to the Daleks and Matt Smith and Karen Gillan visiting the Daily Mirror offices.
Perhaps my favourites are of a War Machine chasing a pram-pushing woman down the street, a line of dancing Cybermen from Silver Nemesis, a cricket-playing Fifth Doctor, and Wendy Padbury and her legs. Just because.
The prints can be ordered framed or on canvas, but there are several cooler options, including the selected photo on a t-shirt, mug, mouse mat, or even a jigsaw.
They’re really quite nifty.
There’s even something there for you Seven Keys to Doomsday fans.
While the magazine is £4.99, prices for the prints range from £9 to £99.99.
Look out for an opportunity to win a copy of the magazine soon on Kasterborous!
