BBC WORLDWIDE AND HER UNIVERSE CELEBRATE
“THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR”
ALL-NEW APPAREL BASED ON DOCTOR WHO’S 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL AVAILABLE AFTER GLOBAL SIMULCAST
To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, Her Universe, the leading fangirl fashion apparel company, will release five new Doctor Who shirt designs shortly after the global simulcast of the anniversary special, Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor, which will air on BBC AMERICA on Saturday, November 23, 2:50pm ET. The new shirts will feature actual art and quotes directly from the anniversary adventure, which are top-secret and won’t be revealed until after the premiere of the special. These unique, limited edition Doctor Who pieces will be available only on Heruniverse.com shortly after the 50th anniversary episode airs and, beginning Monday, November 25th, on ThinkGeek.com and HotTopic.com.
“I proudly proclaim myself a Whovian and I was overjoyed when BBC Worldwide approached us with this unique opportunity to design something special using art and story elements from Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary special,” said Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein. “These designs have been extremely top secret and I think my fellow Whovians will love these new pieces as much as I do!”
Recognizing the burgeoning force of female Whovians and the need to create unique apparel and merchandise just for them, Her Universe founder Eckstein, and The Araca Group, launched the Doctor Who By Her Universe fangirl fashion line in 2012. Additional Doctor Who apparel and accessories from the Her Universe collection are available in the U.S. and Canada at Heruniverse.com.
