When Peter Capaldi was announced as the actor who will take on the iconic role of the Doctor in his 12th incarnation, Doctor Who fans flocked to eBay to stock up on memorabilia from previous regenerations. According to a Radio Times article, outgoing Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith’s merchandise was up 80% on the popular selling site, but Eleven’s sales still can’t compete with Ten.

Tenth Doctor David Tennant collectibles were still the most popular in the days after the announcement, with Matt Smith, Fourth Doctor Tom Baker, First Doctor William Hartnell, and Second Doctor Patrick Troughton rounding out the top five.
