Ever since the 1960s Doctor Who has been a favourite with collectors, making it one of most collected themes around. Popular items include the Denys Fisher range from the '70s. The Denys Fisher Tom Baker doll can sell for up to £250 with its box, and the fragile Cyberman doll can fetch as much as £600 if in mint condition. However, the best Denys Fisher Who toy to track down is the friction drive Dalek from 1976. Finding a mint example is very hard and good examples can cost as much as £800.

Let's not forget the Talking Dalek and K-9 toys made by Palitoy in the mid-'70s, which were able to talk thanks to a tiny record player hidden inside their bodies. Working K-9s can fetch as much as £350 and the Daleks, especially the rare silver colour variant, can change hands for as much as £400.

Older toys from the '60s are even harder to come by. One popular toy to look out for is the Doctor Who Anti-Dalek Jet Immobiliser made by Lincoln International in 1965. Mint on the card examples can sell for as much as £800.
