The collection marks the 50th anniversary of sci-fi show Doctor Who, with all 11 Doctors getting their own first class stamp.
Four of the show’s most notorious villains, including the Daleks and the Cybermen, star on the second class set.
The show first ran from 1963 to 1989. A successful revival returned it to Saturday night schedules in 2005.
Andrew Hammond of the Royal Mail said the commemorative selection “pay 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”
Gimme all the Doctor Who stamps!!!
HOW CAN I ORDER THESE SOMEONE TELL ME.
“England is just a small island. Its roads and houses are small. With few exceptions, it doesn’t make things that people in the rest of the world want to buy. And if it hadn’t been separated from the continent by water, it almost certainly would have been lost to Hitler’s ambitions.” — Mitt Romney
THIS IS TOO MUCH. I CAN’T.
That’s some serious disrespect to Winston Churchill who was standing up to Hitler when America still thought he was a cool guy, God Mitt Romney is a douche.
Wait….fucking seriously? America’s revisionist history regarding WWII is fucking INCREDIBLE TO ME. Yeah, you’re technically right, Mitt Romney, you huge asshole. They probably would have. As it was, they nearly died trying. And America didn’t give a shit for a very long time. So what’s the take-away here? Good God.
Procrastination Theatre: June 4-5, 2012
Good, not-very-clean, British fun. Because sometimes all you want is Chris O’Dowd, Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Murray from Flight of the Conchords, other gangly British men, and Nick Frost in a movie together, all wearing terrible British hippie clothes.
During a trip to the Isle of Skye off of the coast of Scotland, I woke up especially early to watch the sunrise. The colors of the morning light were gorgeous over the trees, the sea, and the little houses. It was magical.

Help Wanted of the Day: 89-year-old Aaron Biber has been cutting hair in Tottenham for decades.
Last year, Aaron lost his wife. This year, he lost his business. Rioters ransacked his barbershop, smashed windows, and stole hairdryers. “I will probably have to close because I haven’t got insurance and I can’t afford the repairs,” Aaron says.
“Not so fast,” responds the Internet. A website has been launched to help Aaron fix his shop. So far nearly £17,000 have been donated.
