They are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the worldâ€™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 fromÂ www.royalmail.com/doctorwhoÂ 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:
Thereâ€™s also a mixed sheet of stamps featuring the TARDIS and four of the BBCÂ sci-fiÂ dramaâ€™s most iconic villains: a Dalek, a Cyberman, a Weeping Angel and an Ood.
â€œWeâ€™ve had a fantastic response from the public who seemingly canâ€™t wait for the stamps,â€ said Royal Mailâ€™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 Doctorâ€™s hometowns, meaning that post mailed in Northampton, for example â€“ whereÂ Matt SmithÂ is from â€“ will feature a postmark with the actorâ€™s name and the length of time heâ€™s played the role.
