Did you click through to Whatculture! when I linked to its predicting-the-end-of-Doctor Who post last week? Did one of items of evidence (regarding the inevitable merchandising that would occur after the show’s demise) catch your eye?
I speak, of course, of this:
This pair of little boys’ smalls are probably not actually Underoos brand underpants, but, you know: it’s Doctor Who Underoos!
Such items continue to be available to this day… updated for the current Doctor, of course:
These come in a two-pack: the other pair is blue with Daleks on them. [Amazon U.K.] But I think we’d all rather have the Doctor that close, amirite?
