One my spiritual homes in London. This place is truly a geek Mecca, filled with 2-levels of nerdy graphic novels, comic books, posters, housewares, trinkets and souvenirs. Perfect place to buy some Doctor Who (or insert name of geeky film, show and/or video game) goodies!

If you're looking for a brilliant nerdy store, Forbidden Planet is exactly that. My only complaint about it would be that it tends to get really packed and there's so much to look at that it becomes quite difficult to look at anything for an extended period of time. A few things are a bit on the pricy side but you could find a really nice simple gift for the nerd in your life at the store without much of a hassle. I found a really fantastic Star Wars bag from there for £10, which was a pretty good deal. Definitely if you're in the market to buy nerdy things, give Forbidden Planet a go!

The ultimate geeky shopping experience. A must for comic book fans and even if comics aren't your thing they have a variety of other items to choose from. I left London with half my bag loaded down with Doctor Who stuff I'd spent way too much money on here. Very worth it.

I'll recommend this place because you can find a lot of beautiful characters with different kind of colors, sizes, prices. If you like DC Comics you must go to downstairs and can find a thousand of then. You can drop by tube on Holborn Station and go walking, pass before on Model Zone. After this you can goes to Convent Gardem as well and have a great day in London. I forgot the name but you can find a Store with a lot of products form movies as well. Close to Ripleys Believe it or not.

Forbidden Planet is one of the few large remaining specialty bookstores. It is filled with science fiction and fantasy books plus associated paraphernalia. The "new" location is not as cozy than the old one just near the Tottenham Court Road Tube. It still remains a must visit for a fan even in these days of Kindle.
