The good people at Lovarzi – who have previously brought us such gems as the Fourth Doctor’s trademark scarf and the Seventh Doctor’s inimitable jumper – have announced two new officially licensed Doctor Who umbrellas. The press release stated:
Our best-selling Fourth Doctor Scarf keeps the winds at bay. Our Fifth Doctor Jumper will make sure you’re toasty. And now, our new Doctor Who umbrellas will keep you dry whether you’re on Marinus, sheltering from the siege of Trenzalore, or under the Earth’s overcast skies. All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was… Where do you want to start?
The Automatic Open and Close Folding Umbrella utilises Time Lord technology: it’s bigger on the inside! All you have to do is push a button on the handle and the 21″/53.3cm canopy opens out. Made with a high quality fibre glass frame, aluminium shaft, and comfortable plastic and rubber-coated handle, the umbrella shows the TARDIS on an alien landscape, evocative of the Doctor’s home planet, Gallifrey, and comes in a specially-made carry case.
This 1960s Police Box is an iconic, beautiful design: an instantly-recognisable image that conjures up dreams of all time and space. That’s why our second exclusive umbrella displays the TARDIS with pride across its 23″/58.4cm canopy! Opening at the touch of a button, the Stick Umbrella is made from durable fibre glass, with a luxurious rubber-coated handle.
Both are ideal for keeping the rain off fans new and old – plus, of course, their companions!
The umbrellas will be available from 10 March for £34.99 and can be pre-ordered now.
