I can clearly remember how I felt when I heard that the iconic BBC TV Sci-Fi series Doctor Who was going to be rebooted in 2005.

Personally, I have to admit I was sceptical.  You see, I loved Doctor Who as a kid; it was a family bonding moment, sitting down in front of the TV on a Saturday night with my parents and my sister, watching as each week the Doctor fought off aliens, monsters and robots.

They announced that the Doctor would be played by Christopher Eccleston, a serious actor with a seriously northern accent. His companion was to be Billie Piper, ex teen pop princess. I scoffed, but well, I thought I’d give it a chance, you know, I’d just watch one episode.

Well, I certainly had to eat my words. It was stunning - a total re-imagination of the series, respectful of the original but bang up to date. I loved it.  So did my then 5 year old son, and so watching Doctor Who became a hotly anticipated weekly event. Christmas and birthdays were guaranteed to include Doctor Who action figures, Doctor Who toys, Doctor Who games, books and clothing.

When my younger son was old enough to enjoy the programme he joined the ranks of Doctor Who fans as well.

Fast forward now to the present. To be honest, while I loved David Tennant, I had not really liked the last two Doctors so much, and the stories were beginning to get a bit stale for me. But, I decided that I would give the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, a chance, just like I had the others. For me it has been as if The Doctor has returned once more. I love Jodie Whittaker’s practical Northern Doctor, her resourceful companions and once more the stories are exciting.

However in 2024 we have said goodbye to Jodie Whittaker's Doctor, but will see the return of the amazing Russell T. Davies as showrunner. The doctor has returned played by Ncuti Gatwa.

I feel like a kid again, and since the kids are almost still young enough for Doctor Who toys, games and books, here is what I will telling Santa to bring the kids (and possibly me as well….)

New 15th Doctor Merchandise is expected to be available from September 2024, including his sonic screwdriver and an action figure.
