BBC Worldwide launches new pop-up shops for Doctor Who's 50th

Fans Set to Converge at Melbourne Pop-Up Shop

A treat for fans in Australia ahead of the 50th anniversary as BBC Worldwide launches its latest pop-up shop in Melbourne.

Following the overwhelming popularity of the Sydney and Brisbane Doctor Who pop-up shops where fans queued for more than two hours to get into the store, this special one-off Melbourne pop-up will feature some exclusive merchandise not currently available in Australian stores.

Shoppers will be able to get their hands on the Who Home range boasting ‘a selection of stylish homewares, such as teapots and mugs, plus notebooks, tea towels and more’. There will also be a limited number of the special edition Tenth Doctor in tuxedo Titan figurines , along with the silver collectible coin from the New Zealand Mint.

To celebrate the store opening at 9am on Saturday 9 November, fans are invited to dress up as their favourite Doctor Who character with a small gift given to the first 20 fans to arrive in costume. The shop can be found at Shop 2, 177 Bridge Road, Richmond.

There will also be special celebrations in store on the weekend of the 50th Anniversary – keep an eye on for details.
