BBC Studios grows Doctor Who licensing drive in the US

New partners for the hit property include Beeline Creative, Hallmark and Rittenhouse.

BBC Studios is continuing to build up the licensing programme for Doctor Who in the US, welcoming a hat trick of new partners.

Beeline Creative will be launching a new line of Doctor Who Geeki Tikis mugs from 7 October featuring K-9, the Eleventh Doctor and TARDIS designs, as well as a Mini Muglet four pack.

Also from October, Hallmark will launch Doctor Who collectables including a TARDIS Keepsake Ornament with Light and Sound and The Fourth Doctor Keepsake Ornament.

Finally, early 2022 will see the arrival of Doctor Who: Series 11 and 12 Trading Cards from Rittenhouse.

These will feature autograph cards signed by Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Mandip Gill (Yaz), Tosin Cole (Ryan), Sacha Dhawan (The Master), Patrick O’Kane (The Lone Cyberman), Chris Noth (Jack Robertson), Alan Cumming (King James) and dozens of other cast members.

The collection will also feature images and plot synopses from every episode in the two series.

“Fans are the lifeblood of Doctor Who,” commented Suzy Raia, vp licensing at BBC Studios Americas. “Those who have been along for the ride for decades will enjoy adding these collectables to their collections – and if you’re just joining us, these are great gifts for the Doctor Who newbie in your life as well.”

Doctor Who is available in the US exclusively on BBC America, with past seasons available to stream on HBO Max. Classic Doctor Who can also be found on BritBox.
