Current Doctor Who Matt Smith and three actors who formerly played the role - Peter Davison, Tom Baker and Paul McGann - have posed with their stamps. 

The stamps, which depict each of the 11 Doctors and some of his enemies from the long-running science fiction series, go on sale today (March 26).

Royal Mail also announced that postmarks from each of the Doctors' hometowns would be used on mail from March 26 until April 2. As both Tom Baker and Paul McGann are from Liverpool, post will be franked with Baker's name in the first half of the week and McGann's in the second.
