Who?

If you've ever visited Blackpool you might recall seeing a small shop called Who. It used to be in the main shopping centre (see image below) but it's now located on Coronation Street opposite the back entrance to Debenhams (near the Winter Gardens). The shop is a sci-fi geek's wildest dream.

Sci-Fi fantasy world ahoy
As the name suggests, the shop sells Doctor Who memorabilia and collectables. When my son knew we were going to Blackpool he immediately asked if he could go (and didn't stop asking until he got there)! There's some cool stuff on show (see image below).

Exterminate small boys
The shop sells collectables from most TV shows and major films, Star Wars has a massive section, so has Star Trek. There's a delightful statue of Seven of Nine, which is worth a sneaky feel ;) My daughter shouted "Mummy" when she saw it and I was very proud until hubs commented "You're right, she really does need her eyes testing". Charming.

Looks just like me
There's every kind of "hero" a small boy could wish to see (and buy related stuff). Ironman is his latest "thing", but he was over the moon to see Batman and Spiderman too.

I crush small boys with my fist
The shop also hosts actors from these shows and movies, who come to do signings and appearances. Hubs was really disappointed that he missed Sophie Aldred by a few weeks (Ace from Doctor Who, his most favourite companion).

Rebel against the system, say "No" to Do Not Touch signs
Next time you're in Blackpool, be sure to check out this shop. Even if you don't like Sci-Fi, they have toys from children's shows like Peppa Pig and In The Night Garden, and collectables from movies such as Harry Potter and Indiana Jones.

Grammar fail
