Royal Mail to issue 'Doctor Who' stamps

LONDON (AP) — Dr. Who — who usually uses a police box for travel — will be zooming through time and space on the edge of letters in 2013.

Britain's Royal Mail is marking the 50th anniversary of the science fiction show "Doctor Who" with a series of stamps featuring each of the 11 actors who have played the title role. Those featured include the present doctor, Matt Smith, as well as past Time Lords such as David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston.

The series will also include a miniature sheet that brings together Second Class stamps featuring four of the doctor's iconic foes — a Dalek, an Ood, a Weeping Angel and a Cyberman.

The stamps honoring the cult British television program will be available starting at the end of March.
