BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand has announced that a Doctor Who pop-up shop will open its doors on August 7th at 10am at Shop 9.28A World Square Shopping Centre, 644 George St, Sydney.
The shop will be the first taste of some of the exciting products to come before the new Doctor Peter Capaldi and his companion Jenna Coleman touch down in Australia as part of a major global tour to launch the new series.
This pop-up shop follows the overwhelming popularity of stores in Sydney and Brisbane last year. The first-ever Sydney Doctor Who pop-up shop saw fans queuing for up to three hours beforehand to get their hands on exclusive Doctor Who merchandise to mark the 50th anniversary of the show.
This year’s pop-up shop features new exclusive products not currently available on Australian shores, including exclusive design “Capaldi” polo shirts (pictured right) and apparel from Her Universe, including leggings, dress and t-shirts.
The Doctor Who pop-up store will also stock all things TARDIS with new products for 2014 such as iPhone 5 covers, jewellery, a TARDIS tumbling block as well as aprons and melamine trays for aspiring Doctor Who chefs.
In addition, the store will feature a TARDIS photo booth allowing fans to enter the booth and have their photo taken on a choice of three backgrounds to share with friends via social media. The first 1000 customers will get a printout of their photo to take home.
Other merchandise includes the limited edition Dalek Coin, the Risk: The Dalek Invasion of Earth board game and Doctor Who party goods.
I am a big fan of Doctor Who and so is my wife! We are always on the scout of Doctor Who merchandise that most of the time run out of stock locally. That is why, once I get some time off, I would definitely visit this Doctor Who pop up shop. Some staff at the storage office were able to get some items when they visited the area recently. I would love to get hold of the Capaldi polo shirts.
