Get your Doctor Who nerd on! On yourself that is. You can wear your fandom without going full cosplay. A bag here. A pair of socks there. Maybe a tee shirt or hoodie? It’s not dressing up if you keep it all within the realm of fashionable attire. Just a hint of the Doctor’s style or an accessory that acknowledges the extensive world building that has eked into our very consciousness.

We did the shopping for you. Any one of these items will express your admiration and affection for the Doctor, the cats, the Tardis, and more.

Go ahead, dress up. Just don’t go full nerd!

Carry your gear in the Tardis! This big bag has a Police Public Call Box charm, looks like the Tardis, and is absolutely adorable. The lining is an homage to the 13th Doctor’s preference for stripes. So there’s that.

Is it bigger on the inside, though? Can you get your entire home in there? And what about when you travel with it? Will you move through time? Will it? Will the items inside?

Only one way to find out, I’m afraid. But it is on sale so taking it out for a spin isn’t that hard.

Subtle! That’s what this is. A pouch for your electronics accessories or cosmetics. A bag to keep inside another bag so your gear is organized. It’s also a lovely image of the Tardis with a clothes line where the Doctor’s gear is picking up the scent of the outdoors, even though he seems to have parked illegally. This comes in several sizes so you could create a many-bag storage system, all emblazoned with your favorite mode of transport.

You are already putting on a strange outfit to go to the beach. Why not this? This swim bottom is modest, flattering, and expresses your admiration for the Thirteenth Doctor’s ensemble all at once. Because you are that cool. Or you will be anyway. Soon.

This is not just a costume, of course. It is an actual swim bottom. You could get the top that goes with it or mix it up and wear it with something more tame — or sexy!

It’s in Junior’s sizing.

Hurry, this is on sale and selling out fast!

Wait, what? Who is that fourth Beetle? Ah, the Doctor, co-mingling with that other British invasion as they all stroll together across that iconic Abbey Road image.

I love a simple image on a shirt. And this one evokes every reason we have to love a British phone box.

Must have for any Anglophile or even just those of us who like Doctor Who and his penchant for inserting himself in another timeline.

A black hoodie is the sort of garment you reach for several times a week. So it’s a no-brainer that you have to have several in your wardrobe. But they don’t have to be boring! This one has the Tardis right on the front. Or the back. You get to choose.

This is great piece of original art printed on a cozy, useful garment so obviously you want one. You can get it as a zip front or pullover.

This is fandom that’s classy enough even for The Doctor.

Doctor Who Cats T-shirt

If you and your cat love to watch Doctor Who together, you will both love this tee. It features only six of the many cat iterations that have graced the odd life of Doctor Who over the years. But they seem to be doing what any cat would be doing — messing with his stuff.

The Doctor once insisted that cats are aliens. So these cats could all also be aliens. But they will also look good on you. And your cat will be pleased that you have been paying attention to what’s important.

Obviously, if you are going to carry a bag that is an homage to Doctor Who, it has to be a doctor’s bag. (That’s the apparel industry name for this style of kisslock bag.)

It’s stylish yet still obviously a Doctor Who bag. It says so right on it! Even so, it’s not really screaming “Nerd alert!” It’s also a good bag.

It’s a smaller bag so you could carry this out in the evening and not feel silly. Especially if you were passing a phone box. You could step in and turn it into a double visual pun.

You can wear this cross body, too. In all, a useful little item.

We get it. You are a fan. But you aren’t the sort of guy who goes to work wearing anything that could be interpreted as a costume. But that doesn’t mean you have to stifle your cosplay urges entirely.

Socks! No one will notice that the pattern emerging from the bottom of your dress slacks is the Tardis — or any of the other images from the many seasons of Doctor Who. You are safe with this. They are only socks. You are allowed to express yourself with socks. Even British people do that.

Also, there are eight pairs in here so you will never run out. Not even if you miss laundry day.
