Merchandise Alternative Doctor Who anniversary celebrations

Don’t Miss This Amazing “The Day of Doctor Who” Collection!

Long term fans can now relive their memories of our favourite show’s fifth anniversary special thanks to a truly irresistible set of souvenirs now available to buy online.

What’s that you say? “Fifth anniversary special?! Oh no, Kasterborous has finally lost it…”

I’m talking, of course, about the long lost ‘The Day of Doctor Who’ which brought together the original three Doctors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Peter Cushing and was transmitted in November 1968 but since lost without trace.

Colin Brockhurst, designer of that excellent love letter to Doctor Who comics Vworp Vworp! has collated the remaining evidence of this, the ultimate missing episode which we can guarantee will never turn up in Nigeria or anywhere else for that matter, ever.

Alternative Doctor Who anniversary celebrations

You’ll have gathered by now that something trans-dimensional is going on here but this quirky collection, which includes an ‘imaginary’ Radio Times cover for November 23-29 and ‘signed’ BBC picture of Peter Cushing, has to be the most original bit of Who merchandise in many a year.

Difficult to pick a highlight of this genuinely brilliant treasure trove but the fake telesnaps, complete with reproduction John Cura envelope, will have you pining for this episode that never was. It seems that there’s an alternate reality where the First Doctor flirted with Queen Elizabeth I, the Second Doctor met not one but two Colonel Lethbridge-Stewarts, and the original ‘War Doctor’ came to their aid to face the dreaded Daleks and Chameleons.

The Day of Doctor Who Collection is available for £19.99 plus postage. Please don’t miss it!

About the Author

Jonathan remembers catching Tony Hughes's Doctor in BBC Schools Maths show when he was off school in 1975. This more than made up for having chickenpox. Something of an old hand by this time, he had learned from The Doctor Who Monster Book that there were other Doctors and adventures to discover - an exciting prospect for a five year old.

    Very cool idea!

  2. John Smith says:

    Your a disgrace, trying to con people into what is obviously a fake

    • This is a joke, right?

      Oh dear. I’ve just had a sad, dawning realisation…

    • FrancoPabloDiablo says:

      Sounds like it must be John’s time of the month! :)

      • mrjohnm says:

        John Smith may have had something to say if he hadn’t used the possessive when he clearly meant to use the contraction. But again, if he had read the article, he would have understood that none of this was real. Although it would have been cool if it did exist!

        • FrancoPabloDiablo says:

          Just as long as he’s appropriately stocked up with extra-absorbent tampons!

        • None of this is real?


          • FrancoPabloDiablo says:

            No, I think John’s menstrual cycle is VERY real :)

    • Buddy, they’re TELLING you that it’s a fake, but a brilliant one, done for the love of the show.

    • It’s not a con, it’s a labor of love by someone. My friends and I have been fans for some 30 years, if this was real, we would know about it.

  3. Any questions concerning the artwork should – naturally – be addressed to Colin Brockhurst via his website.

    We are but conduits.

    • Francis Cave says:

      “We are all conduits but some of us are looking at the stars.”

      Or something like that…..

  4. Gillian Who says:

    I heard Philip Morris has found this episode… they are going to announce it around Easter!
