About us

Get Retro specialises in supplying merchandise related to top science fiction, fantasy, cult genres, and classic Television and Movie brands across all age groups. We found our foothold as a one-stop shop for all things Doctor Who, and since then, we have diversified substantially to carry a broad range of officially licensed products.

Established in 1995, we have a long history in the world of collectables, originally (and still) as leading stamp and autograph dealers. When Doctor Who burst back onto British screens in 2005, Get Retro had its own official BBC licensed merchandise for the show ready on the very day the new series aired.

Since then, we have produced official merchandise for Red Dwarf, Torchwood, Merlin, Bagpuss, The Prisoner, and Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds, to name but a few fan favourites.

More recently, we have expanded to offer clothing, toys, stationery, greeting cards, and a wide range of diverse accessories, often venturing well beyond our science fiction origins, with regular offers from the world of music, sport, and other iconic brands.

We also cater to shops supplying the London tourist trade with commemorative products capturing the essence of British life. Please browse our site. If you are interested in applying for wholesale pricing, you will need to request this here and whilst our minimum order requirements are modest, we only supply bona fide trade customers.

We aim to be especially supportive of bricks and mortar shops and those not reliant on online sales. If you are an online supplier, we ask that you contact us for a more detailed conversation.


We are continually seeking new products to enhance our offerings. If you believe your product aligns with our interests, we are open to discussions. Please feel free to email with offers or telephone to discuss.

Over time, we have established ourselves as a reliable partner for manufacturers facing challenges such as managing end-of-license merchandise or clearing stock due to packaging changes and similar circumstances. We welcome the opportunity to explore potential collaborations.


Our modern warehouse is situated in Hemel Hempstead minutes from Junction 8 of the M1. Visitors are welcome but strictly by appointment.


Shipping is free on Get Retro orders exceeding £300 to MAINLAND UK destinations excluding remote Scottish locations. However, for parcels crossing bodies of water, such as the Isle of Wight, Ireland, and Scottish Islands, full shipping charges apply.
