About us

Get Retro specialises in the supply of merchandise related to top science fiction, fantasy, cult genres, and classic Television and Movie brands across all age groups. It found its foothold as a one stop shop for all things Doctor Who, and since then has diversified substantially to carry a broad range of official Licensed products.

Established in 1995, it has 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, Getretro had its own official BBC licensed merchandise for the show ready on the very day the new series aired.

Since then it has produced official merchandise for Red Dwarf, Torchwood, Merlin, Bagpuss, The Prisoner and Thunderbirds to name but a few firm favourites.

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

It also caters for 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 always on the look out for products to add to our range. If you feel you have something to offer, we are constantly buying. Please email with offers or telephone to discuss. We have become a very useful partner to manufacturers looking for solutions with end of licence sell off merchandise or other issues such as stock needing to be cleared for change of packaging and the like.
