55 Doctor Who Gifts for Temporally Challenged Time Lords

ⓘ The Elder Geek makes mad bank (receives a commission) if you buy something using a link on this page.

“Doctor Who” is the accepted moniker of an immortal, time-traveling alien who, oddly enough, appears quite human.

With his handy time-traveling machine (that resembles something quite ordinary), Doctor Who – and a lucky/unlucky human companion — traverse the timestream to right extraordinary wrongs.

A staple of British science fiction, the good Doctor’s televised adventures started in 1963, ended in 1989, and came back with a howling vengeance in 2005.

If a fan of the erratic, tenacious Time Lord lands on your gift list, you’re probably overwhelmed by the sheer volume of collectible Doctor Who doodads.

Not exactly sure what to procure? Quite confused by all the aliens, a time-traveling call box, and a rotating cast representing a singular Doctor?

Then check out our handy Doctor Who Gift List. It might not explain a time paradox, but it should direct you promptly to the perfect present.
