You may not have noticed but at RadioTimes.com we quite like Doctor Who, and if you’re reading this then it’s likely that you or someone you care about has also been affected by the adventures of a mad man in a box.
So with Christmas coming up, we’ve put together our top 10 list for the Who aficionado. Allons-y!
Keep track of time (and space)
It wouldn’t be a Doctor Who gift guide without some time-related gifts. Ok, a calendar isn’t as exciting as a Vortex manipulator, but you can definitely use it to count down the days until series nine…
A new Doctor means new figurines, so this year you can pick up a teeny-tiny Twelfth Doctor to put in your Whovian’s stocking. With two versions of the 3.75 inch figure (one in his regenerated clothes) you’ll have your pick of Time Lords for your loved one – but sadly, it doesn’t come with detachable attack eyebrows…
An obvious addition to any Time Lord’s wardrobe, the Tom Baker-esque scarf will keep you cosy through the ravages of space and time (and trip up your enemies). But what about the more sedate fan? Never fear – a darker Tardis-adorned offering adds subtler flair.
Ever wanted to fly the Tardis but didn’t have the time/money/billions of years of alien technology to do it? Not to worry – this remote-control helicopter-cum-box will see your very own Type 40 TT capsule zooming through the air.
Matt Smith may have disappeared from our screens last Christmas, but his snazzy addition to the wardrobe of any self-regarding Doctor Who fan still lingers in our cultural memory. Spruce up your festive wardrobe with a choice of his dickie bows.
You know what’s passé? The Tardis-onesie. Been there, spent many a Doctor Who marathon in that. These days, it’s all about going big with your dressing gown, in the purest Tardis blue (hooded) or Matt Smith’s tweed.
For Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary last year, 11 short stories were written by 11 prominent authors (including Neil Gaiman, Eoin Colfer and Charlie Higson) for each incarnation of the Doctor. Of course, now we have a new Doctor, so we need another story.
Happily, Holly Black has obliged and her new story Light’s Out is included in this new collected edition, which also contains stylised postcards of each Doctor’s costume.
Any Whovian worth their salt has versions of the Tardis scattered throughout their house by now – but what about the garden? This bird feeder makes sure that even the animals in the bushes know where your sci-fi loyalties lie.
