Doctor Who, the oldest science fiction series in the world, is an iconic Tv series with THAT blue box called The TARDIS.
I was a big fan of the series when I was a child, so when I found out there were bringing back the show. I had amixture of feelings, excitement and trepidation. The last time the show was revived was what I would consider the ill fated tv movie made by Fox.
I needn't of worried, the series have brought better production values and a whole new level of story telling. It is back as one of my all time favourite shows. I really love the premise of the new show having the Doctor as the lone survivor of his race and I feel it brings an extra dimension to the character.
Thus far I have seen all the Doctors in action and I have enjoyed stories from all Doctors. There is always one Doctor that is 'your Doctor' the one that introduces you to Doctor Who for the first time and the one that you have the most sentiment for. For me that Doctor is the fifth incarnation of Doctor Who, Peter Davidson. I will always remember the Criketing outfit that he wore and the stick of celery that he kept pinned to his jacket. (yeah I know it sounds very weird and British!).
I would have to say that the stories that I have enjoyed the most are those of Matt Smith, who is of course the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor.
For the specific purpose of writing this, I have been researching what I consider the best Doctor Who tees available, this has been a massive task as I underestimated how popular Doctor Who is all over the world.
This has been a bit of a stop start project, as I must admit this feature was started months ago and left dormant for some time before coming back to complete it. I think it must be the 50th aniversity hype surrounding Doctor who that has motivated me to complete the feature.
One of the reasons this list has taken so long, is when I originally started it I noticed, there were many shirts from the current Doctor and I wanted to include designs that featured all the Doctors. I will be honest, I did have trouble finding designs that I felt were good enough for my list of Doctor Who Tees.
Here is the first doctor William Hartnall in a classic monochrome design
A cool tee featuring all eleven of the doctors to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who
One of the best K9 tees that I could find.
by Tim Foley
from the 1988 Doctor Who story “The Happiness Patrol”. The Doctor (played by Sylvester McCoy) discovers that being sad is a crime, and fights the Kandyman, a villain made out of sweets. Yes, this really did happen.
I am a confirmed Whovian and this tee is just awesome. I love the artwork and the fact that it features ALL the doctors. I would love to see some more designs acknowledge the long history of Doctor Who.
One of my favourites, the fourth doctor
A detailed design with the doctor and the companions all on one t shirt.
A cutesy style design featuring David Tennants Doctor
A brilliant design of Davros, who of course is the creator of the Daleks.
So these are the items that make up a Dalek. So that means anyone can make one at home.
A cool sixties comic strip style design featuring the Cybermen
One of the tees from Dark Bunny Tees awesome Doctor Who collection and takes it inspiration from the classic fourth doctor story featuring Tom Baker The Seeds Of Doom which first aired in 1976

There are not many tees featuring the eighth doctor but here is one featuring his distinctive costume

I like this tee, reminds me of my own Geek Definition tee.
You can talk about who is going to play the next Doctor, but the real star of the show is that blue box.
The second doctor on a cool tee
by Tim Foley
Artwork based on the epic 1965 Doctor Who story “The Daleks’ Master Plan”. The Doctor (William Hartnell) versus the Daleks. Twelve weeks of time and space, from the jungles of Kembel to the pyramids of Egypt. Best story ever.
Works best on a dark t shirt.
I like this design from Ixrid.
A multitude of classic Who villains combined into one

I don't think the Doctor has this particular manual!
by Colin Biggs
A really cool mash up of The Last Supper and Doctor Who, with all of the Doctors being represented here, even Peter Cushing, who played the Doctor in two movies in the sixties. He is in the position of Judas as he is considered a non=canonical Doctor. I really love the attention to detail in this design.
I like the simple idea of this design with the complex line work
by Tom Trager

This tee has taken iconic images from Doctor Who to make up the lettering. I don't think I really needed to explain that!
This tee was inspired by the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, who played the iconic role from 1966 – 1969
Who do you think would win in a battle of wits between these two super geeks?
