More than 100 Doctor Who T-shirts

by Andy on April 14, 2011

doctor who t-shirts

Hide Your Arms has gained something of a reputation for creating epic t-shirt lists and obsessing over films and TV shows to find t-shirts. When it was first suggested to me that I write a list of Doctor Who t-shirts (if you have an idea for a list send it in) I thought that it might be a tough ask since I don’t watch the show. I don’t have anything against it, I just already spend too much time watching TV shows, though since practically everyone says it’s good I probable should give it a go. Still, since the fans, or at least one fan, wanted a list of Doctor Who t-shirts, I made it my mission to hunt them down.

As you’ll find in the list there are quite a lot of good Dr. Who t-shirt designs out there, but nowhere near as many as with Star Wars, which is hardly surprising considering the popularity gap between the two, so I haven’t been able to create a list on the epic scale of the 200 shirts in the Star Wars list, but I think the current 119 designs is still fairly sizable. It’s also quite telling that many of the designs riff on the same themes, which suggests to me that Doctor Who designs haven’t been explored too deeply by the more creative t-shirt designers out there. You’ll also notice that a lot of shirts come from a few different retailers, which is frustrating for me since it looks like I’ve only looked in a handful of places, but the truth is that I’ve searched long & wide and not come back with many stores that sell Dr. Who t-shirts. Whether this means we will see more in the future (or that I have simply not discovered a treasure trove of excellent designs), who knows.

As ever, these lists take an awfully long time to put together, so if you would like to share the list with anyone via Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Delicious etc. I would be very grateful, your sharing keeps new people visiting the site, and that in turn means that I am able to keep writing them.


1. Time Travel Convention Tee – $19.95 – Glennz Tees


2. Buy “Job Center Fail!” T-Shirt by Designer Tom Clancy – $15.75 – RedBubble


3. “It also travels in time.” by D4N13L – $21.60 – MySoti (also available at RedBubble)


4. Earth Shock Cyberman T-Shirt – £14.99 – Forbidden Planet


5. “Lordy Lordy!” T-Shirt Design by Cathie Tranent – £16.38 – RedBubble

12. “That Watch…” by Jarrod Kamelski – £17.01 – RedBubble


13. “Wibbly Wobbly Timey-Wimey” by Sachiano – $20.70 at MySoti (I’m sure I’d prefer this without the text, but then it would just be straight up IP theft)


14. “4th Doctor Costume” – £15.99 – Forbidden Planet


15. “5th Doctor Costume” – £15.99 – Forbidden Planet


16. “6th Doctor Costume” – £16.99 (why the extra pound?) – Forbidden Planet

I thought I’d put this next series of 8-bit t-shirt designs by TheRandomFactor together since they’d look silly split up all over the list. I like the 8-bit style, but I do think that the text underneath the designs for each single Doctor is a bit unnecessary and doesn’t really fit with the style of the rest of the designs. EXCITING UPDATE! The Random Factor has now made the designs available without the text.
