I've been in the UK over Christmas and New Year too, and compared to two years ago, I reckon DW has lost some exposure in the best places in toy stores. Toys-R-Us had a smaller section than two years ago. Though it was near impossible to find a Dalek for my 2 year old daughter - it took alot of risearching to get one before and then after Christmas especially. So perhaps one explanation is that it is sooooo popular now, that it doesn't need the premier places in the toy stores to sell anymore - it sells out anyway.

BTW - the deals on Series 1 - 3 toys in Toys-R-Us was exceptional - only a few quid per figure and the TARDIS play set for more than half price!

: helmets for £29 (down from £39) and Dalek bubble bath
