Timey Wimeyness and all that: History of Doctor Who
Doctor Who season 1 was filmed all the way back in 1963 and the BBC program has been going strong (almost) ever since with several spin-off series, specials, and even a Doctor Who movie or two. The series revolves around the adventures of "The Doctor", a mysterious alien Time Lord from a distant planet named Gallifrey. The show's gallant star zips around space and time in a spaceship called the Tardis that on the outside looks like a 1960s British police box (the chameleon circuits having got stuck while in that decade). Each week the Doctor manages to save life on planet earth from various evil alien plots, natural disasters, and other calamities and generally gets in and out of mischief with the help of a human companion, his trusty Sonic Screwdriver, and faithful Tardis.
Who's Your Favourite Who?
There have been twelve doctors since the iconic BBC program first aired in 1963. Each doctor is reincarnated in a new form after the previous doctor succumbs to a mortal injury – which is also a convenient way to explain a new and completely different-looking actor in the main role! Every new doctor has his own personality and character and thus different Doctor Who merchandise exists for the different doctors. We can help you get hold of it! If you're old school, we have dapper striped 4th Doctor Who ties or 11th Doctor slippers with tweed and bow ties for fans who favour a more modern doctor. Most people have a favourite if you ask them, but if you can't decide, why not get a whole set? We have items on our site that represent Doctor Who through the years in his different incarnations with different accessories.
Tardis, Tardis Everywhere!
What is blue, bigger on the inside than the outside, and can travel through space and time? The Dr Who Tardis of course! No one is exactly sure how it works (wibbly wobbly timey wimey), but one thing we are sure of is that we've got an incredible variety of Tardis gift ideas in our selection and something for every kind of Doctor Who fans from a surprising amount of Tardis jewellery to Tardis novelty teapots from Australia, slippers and even a doctor who tardis beach towel! Did you manage to get to the first doctor's festival in Australia? If not, splurging on doctors who merchandise is a good way to get over that particular heartbreak! Lovers of the Doctor Who Tardis will be spoiled for choice at LatestBuy!
