Doctor Who thing of the day: 50th anniversary Royal Mail postage stamps
UPDATE: I’m told by PR for Royal Mail that this news is “inaccurate and no official announcements are planned.” I was also asked to delete this post. But as I told that PR rep, I don’t disappear posts from this site. So there we are.
Doctor Who News is reporting that the U.K.’s Royal Mail will issue a commemorative Doctor Who stamp to coincide with the show’s 50th anniversary next year:
The Royal Mail is to release a set of stamps to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who next year, with the first day cover reportedly due on 8th January 2013.
No other details are available at present, with the Royal Mail informing us:
Unfortunately it is too soon to have or to send out any information regarding an issue in January 2013. Probably around end of November or start of December we should have a FIRST publication that we can send.
Pictured here is a previous Doctor Who Royal Mail stamp, from 1999. Here’s hoping the Doctor actually gets the honor this time. Which Doctor would you like to see on a stamp?
