Royal Mail to release Doctor Who 50th anniversary stamps

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In celebration of Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary next year, the Royal Mail will release a special set of stamps.

Each of the eleven stamps will feature one of the eleven actors that have played the role of the Doctor since the show’s first began in 1963 – Matt Smith, David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston, Paul McGann, Sylvester McCoy, Colin Baker, Peter Davison, Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee, Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell.

In addition to the stamps featuring the Doctors, a five stamp miniature sheet will also be available, which includes the TARDIS and some of the Doctor’s most famous foes – a Dalek, a Cyberman, an Ood and a Weeping Angel.

Managing Director of Stamps and Collectibles at Royal Mail, Andrew Hammond, said: “We are delighted to be able to celebrate this remarkable 50th anniversary. These stamps pay tribute to the brilliant actors that have played the Doctor over the years as well as the adversaries that helped make the show so popular.”

Product Development Director at BBC Worldwide Consumer Products, Fiona Eastwood, added: “The Doctor Who stamps are the perfect way to mark and celebrate the 50th anniversary of this much-loved programme. The collection is really impressive, and I am sure they will delight all Doctor Who fans.”

The special stamps will launch on March 26th, 2013, but are available to pre-order today from royalmail.com/doctorwho

Mine is Nine, obviously. <3
childish Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:24 am (UTC)
Ten!
childish Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:24 am (UTC)
I certainly like 9 more than 11 tho
infinitycluster Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:24 am (UTC)
I started with nine so I'll always love him, but Matt is how I picture the Doctor in my head now.
tw_31988 Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:24 am (UTC)
10!
adorealire Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:24 am (UTC)
Ten will always by my Doctor, since he was my first, but Eleven and Two are tied for an incredibly close second place. I also have quite a fondness for One and Four.
kotori99 Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:25 am (UTC)
Two <3

I love Seven and Eleven too.

It is close between 9 and 10. I mean, I like 9 for very different reasons than I like 10.

And let's not even speak of 11.
die2nitelive4ev Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
10 although the writing sucked in some of 4 and those specials. 9 had some of my fave episodes of nuwho
atomicdogmeat Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
The First, original and the greatest.

sarahvma Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
I was hoping you'd already be in here.

Yeah, I just finished the first Matt Smith season and I still think Chris is the best of the lot. Try as he might, David Tennant just couldn't make me love him more than I loved 9. And Matt Smith feels like the Doctor defanged, which I don't much care for. Where's the passion? Where's the goofiness?
adlanth Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:33 am (UTC)
Nine!
miakun Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:40 am (UTC)
Ten, but Nine is so close. I haven't watched enough classic!Who to judge the rest yet, but I liked seven.

Four and Eleven.
shitzkrieg Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:42 am (UTC)
Nine, with Ten as a close second. Followed by 1-8, 12-∞, and then 11.
sarahvma Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:46 am (UTC)
I wonder how many people just pick whoever they started with, tbh.

I managed to totally avoid Dr. Who until I actively chose to download the whole modern series, so 9 was my doctor as a result. But it seems like a lot of people stumbled on it during the Tennant years and love 10, and then went back and watched Chris, and a handful of people started with Matt and likely realize the error of their ways once they saw the pure giddy perfection of 9 and the sexy mischeviousness of 10.

...Does anyone prefer Matt Smith? Not snarking, just curious.
shangman Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:50 am (UTC)
4 and 9.

4 cause as a kid I used to watch his episodes on tv, 9 cause when it came back in full force he was amazing and is def the best new one.

11 felt like mine in series 5, but then it went very much downhill.
johnjie Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:50 am (UTC)
Can't pick between Nine and Five, love them both too much
superdogbiter Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:51 am (UTC)
9 is the best
scousing Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 12:53 am (UTC)
nine, hands down.

Nine, then Seven. I like manipulative bastards apparently.

Of the classics - four.

Of the currents - nine.

Nine, Eccleston is amazing. I still wish he'd stayed on, but I understand why he didn't.

I am really, really new to DW and have only seen the 11th doctor, and for some reason I do find him adorable. I have yet to see doctors 9 and 10....so maybe my mind will change once I've seen the others.

ladysophiekitty Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 08:53 am (UTC)
It's hard for me to choose between Nine and Ten! I love Ten and there's more to his story so it's really easy for me to get caught up in it and then there's that special touch of how I didn't expect to like him after watching Nine and then I did. But I started watching Nine's series again because a friend of mine who loves the show as well admitted that she'd only seen Ten and Eleven so I was all, "omg we have to watch Nine together!" and it reminded me how much I do love him.

And wow, what a long answer for basically saying that it could go either way right now LOL. NOT a fan of Eleven.
mjspice Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 04:00 pm (UTC)
Eleven.
she_rockstar Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 05:31 pm (UTC)
♥ He's the best. He's so perfect I couldn't even get into S2 properly because I missed him too much. And the first one I watched was Ten.
sergeant_duckie Re: Who is "your" Doctor, ONTD?28th-Dec-2012 09:37 pm (UTC)
I grew up on Sylvester McCoy and Tom Baker, but for New-Who, it'll always be nine, also.

Yay Nine!
sarahvma 28th-Dec-2012 12:38 am (UTC)
Ugh. I love him SO much.

...But, as much as I know they were going for a more "modern" feel, with the lack of an RP accent and the somewhat "controversial" Northern accent, did 9 really have to look like an amateur car thief? I think Chris could've pulled off a grandpa sweater and a scarf, tbh.
m_pendulum 28th-Dec-2012 01:05 am (UTC)
I felt he looked like a guy going through a mid-life crisis.
celtic_thistle 28th-Dec-2012 03:20 am (UTC)
Aw, I loved his dark jumpers, jacket, and boots. It made him stand out. Not that I don't love Ten's suits with Converse, but yeah, Nine had his own vibe going on.

okmewriting 28th-Dec-2012 08:51 pm (UTC)
Think you should be able to buy them online.
su20 UK peeps28th-Dec-2012 12:30 am (UTC)
So come March 26th everyone will be given a dr who stamp when sending post? or do you choose it. I forgotten how getting stamps work with the royal mail - i just take whichever stamp 1st class/ 2nd class stamp i'm given.

lcacbc Re: UK peeps28th-Dec-2012 12:34 am (UTC)
You can pick. Like there were christmas stamps for the last couple of months, but you could still buy the standard ones if you didn't want them.
su20 Re: UK peeps28th-Dec-2012 12:42 am (UTC)
thanks. I was actually given the xmas stamp when i was sending all my post last week but i didn't realise there was an option not to get one. Okies, on it!!
