Doctor Who: Best Goodies Of 2011

It's certainly been an exciting year for our favourite Gallifreyan; he's died, got married, gone to war, hypnotised the entire human race into mercilessly killing an entire race of aliens, accidently saved Hitler's life, met some space pirates, and even grew a beard - twice! But things have been equally exciting off screen in the world of Doctor Who merch! We've seen some really cool stuff this year, from customisable sonic screwdrivers, to psychic cubes, to the return of Omega and his glittery gown!

Looking back over the year, this is our choice of the 25 best Doctor Who toys, books, games, statues and everything of 2011.

What do you think? Should some things be higher on the list? Did we miss anything out? What was your favourite Doctor Who item this year? And what do you want to see next year?

[Doctor Who: Framed Print: Exploding TARDIS]

12. Doctor Who: Framed Print: Exploding TARDIS

As soon as this painting appeared, you knew you wanted it!

'The Pandorica Opens' by Vincent Van Gogh - probably one of the most bizarre paintings by the artist. If you look closely, there appears to a date written on the object in the center of the compostion. I wonder what that means...

[Doctor Who: Mug: Keep Calm And Don't Blink]

11. Doctor Who: Mug: Keep Calm And Don't Blink

You never know when a Weeping Angel might strike, they could even get you during a tea break! Combing classic design with important advice, this mug is an intergral piece of any Weeping Angel defense kit.

[Doctor Who: Bump & Go Cybermat]

10. Doctor Who: Bump & Go Cybermat

Even characters on the show were asking where they could buy a cybermat!

Both cute and creepy at the same time, these tiny cyborgs will hunt, patrol and even change direction when they bump into something. Now all you need is a department store to set it loose in!

[Doctor Who: T-Shirts: Keep Calm I'm The Doctor]

9. Doctor Who: T-Shirts: Keep Calm I'm The Doctor

Now the slogan is on a t-shirt!

[Doctor Who: 2011 Wave 2 Action Figures: Doctor With Beard]

8. Doctor Who: 2011 Wave 2 Action Figures: Doctor With Beard

It's the Doctor - with a beard. What more needs to be said!

[Doctor Who: The Dalek Handbook (Hardcover)]

7. Doctor Who: The Dalek Handbook (Hardcover)

There's a reason the Daleks have been the number one Doctor Who enemy for nearly half a century! This book has everything you need to know about the mutated Kaleds, from behind the scenes looks at their design, to their monumental rise to power as the universe's greatest threat!

[Doctor Who: Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust: 11th Doctor]

6. Doctor Who: Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust: 11th Doctor

Featuring the 11th Doctor in a classic pose, these busts are incredibly detailed and beautifully painted. It's almost like having the Doctor in the room with you (or at least two thirds of a minature version of the Doctor).

[Doctor Who: Action Figure Set: Enemies Of The 3rd Doctor]

5. Doctor Who: Action Figure Set: Enemies Of The 3rd Doctor

Arguably one of the coolest sets ever! Featuring an imposing Omega in a glittery robe, a frankly terrifying Auton (they're evil shop mannequins that shoot random people on the street! Scarier than the Daleks) and a Drashig that can be used as a hand puppet!

I want one, but I'm genuinely scared of Autons.

[Doctor Who: Set: Personalise Your Sonic Screwdriver]

4. Doctor Who: Set: Personalise Your Sonic Screwdriver

Oh sure, you can buy replica sonic screwdrivers, as used by the Doctor in his many incarnations, but wouldn't it be even better to make your own?

[Doctor Who: T-Shirts: 5th Doctor Costume (Forbidden Planet Exclusive)]

3. Doctor Who: T-Shirts: 5th Doctor Costume (Forbidden Planet Exclusive)

While the Doctor isn't always the most fashionable man in the universe, he certainly does have a unique style, or should that be several unique styles. Now you can dress up as your favourite Doctor without the need for hunting down the perfect cricket jumper and beige coat!

[Doctor Who: Travel Pass Holder: U.N.I.T.]

2. Doctor Who: Travel Pass Holder: U.N.I.T.

Every Doctor Who fan should carry this in their wallet. It's only a simple travel card holder, but it's probably the most badass travel card holder ever. If the Doctor had to get the Tube to work, he'd use this.

[Doctor Who: Action Figure Collectors Set: The Chase (Forbidden Planet Exclusive)]

1. Doctor Who: Action Figure Collectors Set: The Chase (Forbidden Planet Exclusive)

How could we have a top Doctor Who list and not have Dalek toys on it? Let us make up for that glaring omission with Daleks and a Mechanoid straight from the classic 1st Doctor serial 'The Chase'!
