    Sold out at my local post office (Whitby, Yorkshire) on the day of release. Been down to the Cotswolds for a short break, so tried down there. Sold out in Oxford. Sold out in Woodstock. Got my son trying to get me a set in Newcastle where he works. If he draws a blank I'll have to hope they're still available online.

      Sounds like they're destined to become quite valuable.

          Newcastle sold out (more on the way on Tuesday, apparently) but I bought them online in the end; arrived yesterday.

          I am amused and quite intrigued by some of the catchphrases chosen to adorn each stamp. Some are obvious (what else but "Put that light out!" could feature on the stamp of Warden Hodges?) others plump for one of at least two alternatives (Jonesy gets "Don't panic! Don't panic!" in favour of "They don't like it up 'em!") others had me wondering if I'd ever actually heard the character say the phrase. I've no doubt Walker did say "It won't cost you much" and probably more than once, but I can't remember it.

          Fond memory jogger though and an affectionately presented slice of nostalgia.

              Well I bought mine at the local post office yesterday.I don't think that Walker or Pike really had catchphrases.For Walker maybe"but for you five bob" and for Pike "don't call me a stupid boy"
              incidentally i recently bought Jimmy Perry's autobiography entitled "I was that stupid boy"

                For anyone that cannot find these at their local post office they are still available to buy online at Amazon UK or eBay.
