Sure, bow ties are cool, but stamps are even cooler.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, Britain’s Royal Mail is releasing a series of stamps featuring the 11 actors who have held the title role, the British postal service announced Wednesday. Everyone from William Hartnell, who first portrayed the Doctor from 1963-66, to Matt Smith, the current star, will be included.

And don’t forget about those pesky foes: Daleks, Oods, Weeping Angels, and a Cyberman will all get their due on a miniature sheet with Second Class stamps, along with a stamp featuring the Doctor’s time travel machine, TARDIS.

“The Doctor Who stamps are the perfect way to mark and celebrate the 50th anniversary of this much-loved programme,” Fiona Eastwood, Product Development Director, BBC Worldwide Consumer Products said in a statement. “The collection is really impressive, and I am sure they will delight all Doctor Who fans.”

The stamps will be available starting March 26, and fans can pre-order through the Royal Mail web site. Geronimo!
