Doctor Who – Christopher Eccleston

Doctor Who is one of the UK’s all-time favourite programmes, and is widely regarded as the king of family sci-fi.


It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like Doctor Whobit, but when it comes to the mega-fans (and there are a lot of those around too) there’s nothing they’d love more than a Doctor Who-themed present.

So here’s our list of the top ten gifts for Whovians.

For the one that’s always late…

Tardis Projector Alarm Clock


This battery-operated alarm clock will ensure there are no excuses for arriving late anywhere, and so is a great choice for your scattiest friend. As well as the retro Tardis design, it projects the time and the Tardis itself onto the ceiling or wall (depending on positioning) when it goes off so there’s no way anyone will sleep through it.

Buy at Amazon – £19.10

For the know-it-all…

Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit


This Whovian twist on Trivial Pursuit is the perfect way to test how much your know-it-all friend really knows about the Tardis and the history of the Doctor. With 600 questions, they’ll have hours of play out of this game.

Buy at Amazon – £14.79

For the friend that’s just moved house…

Tardis poster signed by all Doctors


Your friend that’s just moved into a new home will be grateful for this must-have wall art for any Doctor Who fan. Signed by all actors who’ve played the Doctor (so far), it’s a stylish addition to any home. You can get just the poster, or have it framed and mounted so it’s ready to put up straight away.

Buy at Amazon – £7.99

For the lazy one…

Doctor Who Dressing Gown


If their idea of a night out is taking the bins out and they’re always in bed by 10pm and in pyjamas by 6pm, this is the ideal present. If you’re going to be lazy, at least do it with style.

Buy at Amazon – £23.36

For little Whovians…

Doctor Who: Where’s the Doctor?

Much-loved kids’ book Where’s Wally gets a new life in Where’s the Doctor – it’s the perfect present for younger Doctor Who fans whose parents want them to get away from their screens for a while.

For your colleague…

Tardis Notebook

A perfect little present for a colleague, this Tardis-themed notebook is sure to stand out amongst everyone else’s boring plain black versions. A5 size and convenient for taking notes in meetings, it’s sure conversation-starter in the office so it might even help them make new friends.

For the crafty one…

Doctor Who Origami

Craft-lovers will adore this book that’ll teach them to make all the best characters, from several versions of the Doctor him/herself to the Daleks. It’s all great for all kids, and parents will be grateful for another way to get them away from their tablets, computers and TVs for a while.

For the tea-drinkers…

Tardis Mug
