BOSSES at Taunton's Orchard Shopping Centre did a bit of shopping themselves to bring the latest new business to the town.

They invited the owner of The Television and Movie Store, which sells cult TV and movie merchandise such as collectibles, giftware, toys and clothing, to come and have a look at their mall.

And Steven Scott was so impressed he decided to open a shop stocking memorabilia from Doctor Who, DC, Star Wars, Harry Potter and much more.

The business, situated in the former Hawkins Bazaar premises, caters for all tastes, with children's Disney favourites and Minions among other goodies in the store.

If you can't make up your mind what to buy, the shop also offers heavily discounted themed Mystery Boxes containing an amazing array of goodies.

And shoppers have been impressed since The Television and Movie Store welcomed its first customers last Saturday.

"It's up and running and we've had a brisk start," said Mr Scott, who opened his first shop in Norwich 12 years ago and also has outlets in Cardiff and Bristol.

Pride of place in the shop window is a full size Dalek and coming soon is a throne from the Game of Thrones.

"The people in the Orchard Shopping Centre invited us to come and have a look at the centre and we liked what we saw," said Mr Scott.

"We've got a nice, clean unit in a welcoming shopping centre that's interesting for customers.

"Taunton is a traditional town, not some sterile post-War location. It's got some history. I spent an hour walking round town and it's charming.

"We're very different and offer destination shopping with things people can't readily get, so we'll bring people to the town."
