      Apparently, these were a one-off for Matt Smith.

    From what I understand these, sadly, will not be available in stores, but no doubt many boxes will have been created to warrant a very costly set-up.

    It is a shame, because there has been branded Doctor Who food (I don’t include Easter eggs and cakes) such as Cross and Blackwell and Yoplait Frubes. There is no reason why a Birds Eye promotion could not have occurred. I do not understand all the hype over something that is not commercially happening.

    But thanks for reporting it Booboo. I never like to miss out.

      I have just been out to the Coop especially based on the above sighting, just in case various media sources were wrong. There were no Fish Fingers with the Doctor on, just Captain Birdseye.

      They are just normal Birdseye fish fingers. Nothing different. . Only instead of Captain Birdseye you have the Doctor on the box.
