Doctor Who, a British science fiction TV show broadcast by the BBC since 1963, follows the adventures of the Doctor, an extraterrestrial Time Lord who resembles a human. Traveling in the TARDIS, a time-traveling spacecraft, the Doctor explores the universe. The TARDIS, disguised as a blue British police box, harkens back to 1963 UK. Thirteen actors, starting with William Hartnell, have portrayed the Doctor, with Jodie Whittaker becoming the first female lead in 2017. The transition between actors is woven into the plot through regeneration, where the Doctor gains a new body due to injuries. Each actor brings a distinct portrayal but represents one character's evolution. With its time-traveling premise, different incarnations of the Doctor occasionally cross paths. The show is iconic in British and global pop culture, with a devoted fan base known as Whovians. Holding records for longevity and success, Doctor Who has left a lasting impact on television and inspired spin-offs, comics, novels, and more. Originally running from 1963 to 1989, the show was revived in 2005, produced by BBC Wales, and led to various spin-offs and cultural references.


Fourth crowned portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.

The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara was a wedding present in 1947 from her grandmother, Queen Mary, who received it as a gift from the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland in 1893 on the occasion of her marriage to the Duke of York, later George V. Made by E. Wolfe & Co., it was purchased from Garrard & Co. by a committee organised by Lady Eve Greville. In 1914, Mary adapted the tiara to take 13 diamonds in place of the large oriental pearls surmounting the tiara. At first, Elizabeth wore the tiara without its base and pearls but the base was reattached in 1969. The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara is one of Elizabeth's most recognisable pieces of jewellery due to its widespread use on British banknotes and coinage.

Depicts the image of the Weeping Angel designed by Steven Moffat. The reverse is the Angel shining brightly against a burgundy and dark red galaxy giving the Angel a sense of floating through space and time.

Surrounding the Weeping Angel and coloured background is a fine border with "DOCTOR WHO" inscribed below. Inscribed to the left is "1/2 OZ 999 FINE SILVER".

The Weeping Angels are a race of predatory creatures from the long-running science fiction series Doctor Who. They were introduced in the 2007 episode "Blink", making repeat appearances in later episodes. They also appeared in the spin-off series Class. Since their initial appearance, they have been persistently nominated as one of the most popular and frightening Doctor Who monsters. Steven Moffat attributes their appeal to childhood games such as Grandmother's Footsteps and the notion that every statue might secretly be a disguised Weeping Angel.
