The British science fiction show Dr. Who now has a whole new generation of fans thanks to its showing on BBC America. Before this, Dr. Who was shown primarily on PBS in America. For those with a fan of Dr. Who on their list, the array of gift choices are plentiful. Here are a few ideas.
Dr. Who action figures are easy to find online these days, on sites like Amazon and eBay. For example, a Ten Figure Gift Pack is available on Amazon. This pack includes five inch figures of the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, a dalek, Sycorax Leader, and others.
Action figures from the earlier Dr. Who shows are available as well, such as the popular Fourth Doctor played by Tom Baker. Many toy stores throughout the United States and England list their Dr. Who figures on Amazon.com, making the site a good place for shoppers to begin their search.
Dr. Who Scarf
The Fourth Doctor made the long, multi-colored scarf a must-have for Dr. Who fans. The original scarf is draped around the neck twice, hangs to the floor, and is a foot wide. It’s fairly impractical for everyday use, but Dr. Who fans are usually thrilled when they can find someone to knit this garment for them.

For people who don’t know how to knit, a crocheted version of the scarf exists as well. This version is inspired by the show, but is shorter and less wide, making it acceptable to wear for everyday use.
The blue police box shown on Dr. Who is also called the TARDIS, which stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. Many different versions of this box are available for Dr. Who fans, including a talking bank and tin. For several thousand dollars, a full-size police box can also be found on eBay.
The sonic screwdriver is an item that the Doctor uses to fix, use, or open various locks and equipment on the show. It was created especially for the show and not a real screwdriver. Replica sonic screwdrivers are available at many online outlets, including one for under eighteen dollars sold by the website Entertainment Earth.com.
Dr. Who fans with a sweet tooth may enjoy Jelly Babies, a chewy candy item popular in England. The Fourth Doctor was very fond of Jelly Babies, and boxes of this treat can be found online or at many World Market Stores.
Those new to the show may enjoy a DVD set of previous episodes, or any one of the items mentioned above. Buying for a fan of Dr. Who offers many gift choices in a variety of price ranges. Dr. Who fans are sure to appreciate one of these well-thought out and unique presents.
