Doctor Who Royal Mail stamps have been released and smash sales records

Doctor Who tardis and stamps
Do you remember the Royal Mail stamps I’ve mentioned some time ago? Well, Doctor Who.tv announces that after an unprecedented number of pre-registrations the stamps have been released.

They are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the world’s longest running science fiction series, they feature all the actors that have played the Doctor since 1963 (11 of them) and they are available at 9,000 Post Office Branches (UK only) and online from www.royalmail.com/doctorwho globally.

The stamps were recently launched at an event in London, with former Doctors Tom Baker, Peter Davison and Paul McGann in attendance. You can see a gallery of pictures from that launch here, while the full set of stamps can be seen on Radio Times.

Radio Times also say in another article that:

There’s also a mixed sheet of stamps featuring the TARDIS and four of the BBC sci-fi drama’s most iconic villains: a Dalek, a Cyberman, a Weeping Angel and an Ood.

“We’ve had a fantastic response from the public who seemingly can’t wait for the stamps,” said Royal Mail’s managing director of stamps and collectibles Andrew Hammond.

In addition to the stamps, Royal Mail is also creating unique postmarks in each of the Doctor’s hometowns, meaning that post mailed in Northampton, for example – where Matt Smith is from – will feature a postmark with the actor’s name and the length of time he’s played the role.
