All eleven actors to have portrayed the Doctor on television since 1963 are featured on First Class stamps next year. The Royal Mail today unveiled their Doctor Who 50th Anniversary collections, which presents every incarnation of the Time Lord, whilst the Second Class set showcases the programme’s greatest monsters and the iconic TARDIS (pictured below).
Andrew Hammond of the Royal Mail said that the commemorative stamps paid “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”.
Meanwhile, current Doctor Who show-runner Steven Moffat has promised “tremendous surprises” for the golden anniversary year.
William Hartnell (pictured above) and David Tennant have already appeared on a postage stamp – when celebrating the Carry On films (Carry On Sergeant, 2008), and the RSC (Hamlet, 2011) respectively. The Daleks were first honoured with a celebratory stamp in 1999.
The new stamp sets are available in March.
