In October 1963, The Doctor, (in his original incarnation), visited Magpie Electricals and attempted to buy components to repair his damaged TARDIS (Hunters of Earth).
Many years later, in his tenth incarnation, and 10 years earlier in 1953, (this time travel business can get very tricky), The Doctor faced the Wire who was forcing Mr Magpie to sell TV sets cheaply so that she could "take people's essences" and get a physical body (The Idiot's Lantern). Although Magpie himself was killed by the Wire, Magpie Electricals survived the loss of its proprietor and continued to prosper.
In 2007 the Magpie Electricals website briefly appeared on a mobile phone being flicked through by The Doctor (The Runaway Bride).
In the following year Martha Jones' Magpie brand television was booby trapped by The Master (The Sound of Drums), while in the Christmas of that year Wilfred Mott was watching a portable Magpie branded television set as he sold newspapers on the streets of London on Christmas Eve (Voyage of the Damned).
River Song's scanner was manufactured by Magpie Electricals (Day of the Moon) and, in the reconstructed TARDIS Console Room (The Eleventh Hour) the monitor, typewriter, keyboard and a miscellaneous control by the mustard dispenser all had Magpie Electricals brands on them, as did a power control device labelled Type V 310-A (Vincent and the Doctor).
In 1138 the Twelfth Doctor, while standing on a tank in a medieval castle (The Magician's Apprentice) and later while on the TARDIS (Before the Flood) played his electric guitar through a Magpie Electronics amplifier.
A Magpie Electricals shop window featured TV sets carrying The Doctors broadcast for The Monks (The Lie of The Land) in 2017
Sarah Jane Smith had a Magpie Electricals branded computer (The Mark of the Berserker), Torchwood owned an old Magpie television (The Undertaker's Gift) and Magpie Electricals was still a household name in the 33rd Century where it's continued presence was still to be seen in evidence aboard the Starship UK (The Beast Below).
The absolute best way to measure your shirt is to dig out your favourite most comfortable T-Shirt ever, lay it flat on a table, and measure armpit to armpit. That way you get the most comfortable fit for you.
Made To Order: Because all of our T-Shirts are Custom Printed To Order, (we don't hold any pre-printed Tees), we can't offer an exchange/replacement if you order an incorrect Style/Size/Colour, (EU distance selling exception for Made To Order Goods). Different T-Shirt brands, (we use Gildan), have wildly differing labelling standards so its really important to make your own measurements.
So Please Do take a measurement of a T-Shirt that fits you, (armpit to armpit), and compare to our sizing chart, before placing your order.
But Hey - mistakes happen, and we really want you to be chuffed as punch with your purchase so… If, in spite of all precautions,
you do make an incorrect sizing choice - we’ll meet you part way.
We’ll ask you to contribute £5.00 towards our Production Costs, plus the Cost of Shipping, and we’ll also get you to destroy the Original Shirt and provide photographic evidence, (this saves you the return postage)...
and we’ll send you a replacement...
just this once mind! :)
Heaven forbid but if we make a right pigs ear of your order please get in touch with us straight away, and we’ll arrange for a replacement along with a grovelling apology.
Afterwards the drone responsible for the error will have their diodes removed and their conducters short-circuited (again!).
You don’t mess with the Carrot.
Because your shirt will be printed to order we ask for a 5 day working window before dispatch. We aim to be a lot quicker, (usually the next working day), but this gives us a bit of leaway if things don’t go quite to plan.
We can remove, tweak or replace text, add personalisation, change the size and position of images... print one of your own designs, or help design t-shirts for an event... Stag/Hen Nights, Fun Runs etc.
Here are some 'off-the-peg' ideas to get the ball rolling...
To ask about customising your shirt just email us at email@example.com
Our shirt prints measure upto 27cmx19cm (approx), depending on the design proportions and the garments printable area.
All of our shirts are Custom Printed To Order.
We don't stock pre-printed shirts.
