The Ultimate Doctor Who Collectors Set - Only £49.99

The ultimate collectors set - including all 11 incantations of Doctor Who.


For the first time, all eleven versions of the Doctor have come together as a set of 5" action figures, in a TARDIS display box. The figures of the first to seventh Doctors appear in brand new outfits exclusive to this boxed set. Each Doctor comes with an accessory, either his sonic screwdriver, or a personal possession.
  • The First and Second Doctors (William Hartnell, 1963-1966, and Patrick Troughton, 1966-1969) come dressed in the outfits they wore when they appeared in "The Three Doctors", helping the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee, 1970-1974) fighting off the ancient, crazed Time Lord known as Omega.
  • The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker 1974-1981) appears wearing his legendary multicoloured scarf.
  • The Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison, 1981-1984), remembered for wearing an Edwardian cricket outfit, now features his famous stick of celery!
  • The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker, 1984-1986) comes wearing one of his bizarrely garish outfits. The Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy, 1987-1989) was much better dressed, as seen with this exclusive figure.
  • The Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann, 1996) only made one television appearance, and this is the first time he has appeared as an action figure.
  • The Ninth Doctor (Christopher Ecclestone, 2005) was only around for a short while, before causing a regeneration to save Rose Tyler's life.
  • The Tenth Doctor (David Tennant, 2005-2010) then thwarts several attempts to destroy the universe, before finally defeating his long-time nemesis, The Master.
  • The Eleventh version of the Doctor, played by Matt Smith, appears in his tweed jacket and bow-tie, having just saved the universe from the cracks in time.
The Doctor Who - Doctors Collector Pack is priced at £49.99, and is available from our Christmas Living Selection.

Keep Calm and Carry On From Only £9.99

A little bit of history

In 1939 the British governments Ministry of Information commissioned a series of propaganda posters which were designed to be distributed across the country at the onset of the hostilities of the Second World War, the posters were intended to offer the public reassurance in the dark days which lay ahead.

3 designs went into production; the “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters were the third of these designed and only 2.5 million were printed.

The first 2 designs “Your Courage, Your Cheerfulness, Your Resolution will Bring Us Victory” and “Freedom is in Peril” appeared up and down the country, but the “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters were held in reserve and were intended to be used only in times of crisis and invasion. These posters were never officially issued and remained virtually unseen by the public until one turned up more than fifty years later in a box of dusty old books which were bought in an auction. This poster went on display in a bookshop (Barter Books in Alnwick) and was such a hit with their customers that the owners decided to sell copies of it, later endorsing the production of “Keep Calm and Carry On” merchandise.

Keep Calm And Carry On Worktop Saver Was £14.99, Now Only £9.99

1. Smurfs are 3 apples tall
2. Smurfs can walk and run but most often move by skipping both feet
3. They love to eat sasparilla leaves, the berries of which they actually call "smurfberries"
4. The smurf characters are at least 100 years old

6. The smurfs use storks to travel long distances and keep up to date with events in the outside world
7. It is said to be impossible for an outsider to find the smurf village, except when led by a smurf, so you never know there might be some living just next door!
8. The smurfs have been around since 1958!
9. The smurfs replace enough nouns and verbs in everyday speech with "smurf" as to make their conversations barely understandable eg, "we're going smurfing on the river smurf today."
10. Sasette is the love interest of almost every smurf, and in the 2011 film is being voiced by Katy Perry.
