Stetsons and Wellies

Like Malibu Stacey; the Doctor has a new hat! Look at it! I want it, i want it, i want it!

It takes a real man to pull off a Stetson.

A granite jawed, barrel chested, hairy knuckled kinda guy- the kinda guy that could punch you so hard your parents would bruise. It’s no spring picnic either for toys.

For every Woody the Cowboy, with his trusty hair-dampener at a rackish angle,  there’s an Alan Grant- a character whose hat was fixed permanently to his skull like some sartorial gypsy curse- who for added torture, looked twice a stupid when particularly malevolent children yank all the brim off said hat. Making him look like the victim of blunt force trauma to the head.

In steps the Doctor, a flint scowl on his plastic face, sonic screwdriver hoisted. The toy box is about to get a new sheriff. As part of the first wave of Doctor Who figures to hit the shelves in 2011 the Doctor with his man-hat is available for Pre-order now for £8.99.


But that’s not all. If you ever fancy recreating a tweed version of True Grit the 2011 wave also has your Mattie Ross.

Poor Amelia. Left waiting for the Doctor, sat on her suitcase, little wellies and everything…awww…Now you can recreate that moment with your own Amelia Pond action figure!

That’s right, the cute as a button companion in waiting has been immortalised in plastic and is again waiting…waiting for you to pick her up for just £8.99 on pre-order from Forbidden Planet!

Both items will be available from 16th June.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
