Verified Purchase
Good, cheap and cheerful, a good set of playing cards and when you think of the cost of some of the Doctor Who items available dammed cheap too.

The price of these mean that they could easily bought with pocket money for children/teenagers, and as it is something to be bought with their own money no doubt played with more.

The card is good quality and all cards have various Doctor Who characters upon them, they actually look quite good not tacky. (Even adults will enjoy playing cards using these I think).

Price wise the same price as an average pack of playing cards but that extra Who factor.

A good item to keep in the car for long summer car journeys, not quite so much complaining from the kids about being bored hopefully and for the price a cheap boredom reliever.

These cards are pretty cool - they have pictures of Doctor Who stuff on them, and you can also use them to play card games! It's quite good fun to look through them and identify all the different characters and aliens.

Having said that, some of the pictures are poorly chosen - bad pictures of characters or strange subjects to choose, and quite a few really cool characters don't get a card. I would gladly give up my cards of Sontarans and other aliens to get ones of Sarah Jane or Romana II.

The cards are worth the price and still pretty good, but with a bit more care and attention they could have been so much better.

Okay, it's nothing to get too excited about - it's a pack of cards. And as it was produced when Richard E. Grant's online cartoon Doctor was the latest introduction to the mythos, it's looking a bit dated when the new BBC Cardiff version of the series has made such a big impact.

There's some attempt at a pattern running through the cards (the spades are all monsters, the hearts all female companions, the clubs all male companions and the diamonds all Doctors) with some attempt to link each pip value thematically as well; not successfully in some areas - for instance you might find yourself idly wondering, if all the kings refer to the Peter Cushing movies why is the King of Clubs the emperor Dalek from Evil of the Daleks, and not a movie dalek? Also in the failed attempt to maintain this thematic pattern obscurities are included whilst popular characters fail to appear - to make up the numbers the diamonds include Trevor Martin as the stageplay Doctor and Richard Hurndull as the William Hartnell stand-in.

Still it's a pleasant thing to have, it doesn't cost much and I'm proud of my set. I'd suggest it was time for a re-release now Christopher Ecclestone and David Tennant and their associates and adversaries are sorely missed from the pack, but since current merchandise tends to ignore the original series entirely it just wouldn't be the same.
