Those featured include the most recent actor, Matt Smith, as well as past Time Lords such as David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston and the “First Doctor,” William Hartnell.

The series will also include a miniature sheet that brings together Second Class stamps featuring the Doctor’s time-traveling machine and four of his iconic foes — a Dalek, an Ood, a Weeping Angel and a Cyberman.

The many characters in the science-fiction show “Doctor Who” will be zooming through time and space on the edge of letters in 2013.

The stamps honoring the cult British television program will be available starting  March 26, 2013. For more information or pre-order, click here.
