Whovian merch galore usually off limits to Aussie fans will soon be available to Brisbanites, with the exclusive pop-up shop set to arrive on 12 October for a three-week stay.

Like the Sydney shop, the Brisbane store will allow fans to get their hands on the Who Home range of goodies — teapots, mugs, tea towels, notebooks and laptop cases — as well as some t-shirts and leggings and replica Doctor Who coats. And, of course, there will be toys galore — and even some collectibles, such as the Titan Entertainment 10th Doctor Tuxedo vinyl figure and the limited-edition silver coin created by the New Zealand mint.

The TARDIS and K-9 will even be on hand for photo ops.

Customers are invited to come to the opening day in costume, with the first 20 customers through the doors to receive a free gift.

And, premiering on 8 February 2014 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra will be performing the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, a performance of Doctor Who music written by Murray Gold, who has served as the series' musical director since 2005. This will be accompanied by a big screen, featuring selected scenes from Matt Smith's tenure, including a horde of terrifying monsters. Tickets can be booked online or by calling 132 849.

The pop-up store will open its doors at 9am on Saturday, 12 October at Shop 13A, 23 James Street, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
