Exterminate! Exterminate!

Toy Daleks and other "Doctor Who" goodies are doing brisk business in British collectible stores, reports The Edinburgh Evening News.

Interest is up due to the new "Who" series, which saw its BBC debut the other day.

Forbidden Planet, on South Bridge, specialises in science fiction and cult comic books and toys, and manager Steve Luke has seen a huge burst of interest in Dr Who memorabilia since the new series, starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper, got its first airing on Saturday evening.

He said: "It’s just got bigger and bigger. The new Doctor Who magazine came out a month ago and we couldn’t get enough of them in."

Four-foot tall inflatable Daleks, talking Tom Baker figures and Cyberman cookie jars have all been selling fast.

Prices range from £7.99 for a model Tardis to £70 for a 18in tall talking Dalek.

I want a Cyberman cookie jar.
