Royal Mail has received unprecedented demand for new stamps marking the 50th anniversary of the BBC's Doctor Who series.

Pre-registration numbers for the set of 11 stamps was more than three times higher than any other issue where pre-registration was available.

The first class stamps, which go on sale on Tuesday, feature each of the 11 actors who have played the role of the Time Lord over the past 50 years.

Andrew Hammond, of Royal Mail, said: "We've had a fantastic response from the public."
