Doctor Who: Postcards from Time and Space
BBC Children’s Books, Published by the Penguin Group, 2012
Many of the greatest scenes from Matt Smith’s first couple of seasons as the Doctor can be found in this wonderful collection of one hundred postcards. The Doctor is here, along with Amy Pond, Rory Williams, and River Song. A good number of enemies are present as well, including Daleks, the Silence, and frequent visitors to my own nightmares, the Weeping Angels.
These are not flimsy postcards like you will find in souvenir shops while vacationing. They are printed on high-quality, thick card stock with full-color photographs or artwork on the front, and space on the reverse for a short note to your friend and his address. The corner where the stamp goes features a silhouetted TARDIS, Dalek, or sonic screwdriver. It would almost be a shame to cover it up with a real stamp!
These cards are, of course, highly collectible. Doctor Who fans of all ages will absolutely love this set…but don’t expect to see the postcards go out in the mail. They are more likely to be taped up on bedroom walls or preserved in the TARDIS keepsake box, which is almost as exciting as the cards themselves.
