Dr. Who Question for my friends across the pond

My brother is heading over to England for vacation next week. I've asked him to pick up some Dr. Who stuff for me while there, but when he asked what to get I wasn't exactly sure. From someone that lives over there, what's something he should look out for? I know there is a lot of stuff that can only be had on that side of the pond. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

The Topps UK cards are nice:-

The binder/starter pack can be easily picked up for £4.99 ($8), and regular packs cost £1.00

Whilst the DVDs are comparatively very cheap here, they are coded to REGION 2 (PAL625), which are highly unlikely to play on your USA Region 1 (NTSC525) Television.

Whilst the cards should still be easy to find he will need to go to a newsagents to get them. I think WH Smith still have the cards and is the biggest retailer.

If he can find the Character Building Blindbag Minifigs, they are worth a look, though he might have some difficulty tracking them down now (Forbidden Planet shops probably have them - I know the London one does!)
On the quirkier side, Lakeland Plastics has a range of Doctor Who themed baking accessories, including Dalek Cupcake Kits!
Au Res.,
