A Doctor Who fans’ paradise will materialise in Brisbane this week, with BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand announcing that a Doctor Who pop-up shop will open its doors on Saturday 12 October at Shop 13A, 23 James Street, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
Following the overwhelming popularity of the first-ever Doctor Who pop-up shop in Sydney earlier this year, this special one-off Brisbane store will feature some exclusive merchandise not currently available in Australian stores. On offer is the Who Home range boasting a selection of stylish homewares, such as teapots and mugs, plus notebooks, tea towels and more.
Fans can stock up on women’s apparel from cult US fan-girl designers Her Universe, including some new leggings and t-shirt designs, a new range of men’s t-shirt designs from the UK, replica coats from Canada, costume jewellery from the US, a new range of kids’ back to school stationery and much more.
A limited number of the special edition Tenth Doctor in tuxedo Titan figurines will also be on sale, as well as the covetable silver collectible coin from the New Zealand Mint. Also on offer will be the popular range of toys, gifts, DVDs and books that Australian fans love. And as a special treat, fans can get up close to a TARDIS and a K-9.
To celebrate the store opening at 9am on Saturday 12 October, fans are invited to dress up as their favourite Doctor Who character with a small gift given to the first 20 fans to arrive in costume.
