Doctor Who To Look Forward To

What Doctor Who related thing are you most looking forward to?

With the series not appearing on our screens until later in the year, the only way to fill that TARDIS shaped hole in our hearts is by filling it with as many Doctor Who products as possible.

What are you most looking forward to? What predictions do you have for the next series? Which character do you want to see turned into a toy? (The answer to that last question is Rory, obviously)


[Shada (Hardcover)]

Doctor Who: Shada (Hardcover)

It's not just the 1st and 2nd Doctor's that have lost stories! Arguably one of the more famous missing serials from Doctor Who, Shada was written by the legendary Douglas Adams for the 4th Doctor but was never aired due to a strike during filming. Left incomplete, various surviving segments have appeared from time to time, on VHS with missing segments narrated by Tom Baker, adapted for an 8th Doctor audio drama and, most notably during the 25th anniversary special The Five Doctors.

A novelization of the story was never released, but fortunately prolific Doctor Who writer Gareth Roberts has adapted the story, which is due for release in March. Finally fans will get to see the whole story of Shada.

[Dynamix Ultra Stylised Figure: 10th Doctor]

Doctor Who: Dynamix Ultra Stylised Figure: 10th Doctor

Doctor Who comics have existed for almost as long as the series itself, starting in 1964 and even continuing in that dark period in the 90s when the TV series didn't. But despite being such a major part of the Doctor Who universe, there isn't much comic related merchandise - no Frobisher plush toys or Omniversal Spectrum playsets. Which is why this statue, featuring the 10th Doctor as he appeared in the comics, is so cool! Hopefully this will be the start of a whole line of comic related statues!

[Retro Action Figures: Morbius]

Doctor Who: Retro Action Figures: Morbius

These retro figures all look a little weird, but Morbius is meant to look weird so it all works out in the end! With his translucent head and giant lobster claw, Morbius is certainly one of the most unique foes the Doctor ever encountered and I'm particularly looking forward to seeing how he'll look as an old school action figure!

[Action Figure Collectors Set: Remembrance Of The Daleks (Forbidden Planet Exclusive)]

Doctor Who: Action Figure Collectors Set: Remembrance Of The Daleks (Forbidden Planet Exclusive)

Remembrance? Revelation? Resurrection? Which one is which? Can anyone remember? If you can't remember the name, you'll at least remember Daleks getting blown up and Davros pretending to be the Emporer Dalek with a giant head. Anyway, these two will look great combined with the previous Remembrance set!

[Collector Series Figures: 11th Doctor]

Doctor Who: Collector Series Figures: 11th Doctor

One day, action figures like these will become so lifelike that they'll be indistinguishable from actual humans. And that day is getting ever closer. But until that day of reckoning, we can enjoy awesome stuff like this! With accessories including the Psychic Container, Invitation and the Nano Recorder Gun, you can reenact scenes from series 5 and 6! Or you could pretend that Matt Smith has encountered the Master's deadly tissue compression eliminator. It's up to you.

[Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust: 3rd Doctor]

Doctor Who: Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust: 3rd Doctor

Yes, it's been delayed, but that doesn't mean we're not still looking forward to it. Besides, he's the Doctor, he's alway late - be thankful you're not sitting outside on a suitcase waiting for him. Yes, I know that was the 11th Doctor.

[Official Collector Figurine: K9]

Doctor Who: Official Collector Figurine: K9

Updated to look more 21st century sleek, K-9 was revamped for his own TV show. Whether or not the show was canon and took place in the official Doctor Who universe is up for debate, but the redesign is certainly for the better. How did he ever manage to get into the TARDIS originally? There was a step!

[Signature Edition Statue: Gallifrey Edition: Patrick Troughton]

Doctor Who: Signature Edition Statue: Gallifrey Edition: Patrick Troughton

Considered by many to be the best incarnation of The Doctor, it seems only fitting for Patrick Troughton's 2nd Doctor to be the first in what will be a series of Doctor Who statues!

[TARDIS Tent]

Doctor Who: TARDIS Tent

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be stocking any acual TARDISes in the near future. Or even the far future. Fortunately, this tent looks to have all the qualities of the TARDIS, just without the time/space travel or being dimensionally transcendental.

[Talking Plush: Yellow Dalek]

Doctor Who: Talking Plush: Yellow Dalek

Cuddly. Dalek. How can you not be excited?
