Put simply, any related merchandise would have to have a certain… bouquet.
So behold the new Action Figure Collectors Set: City of Death, featuring the Fourth Doctor (complete with Sonic Screwdriver accessory) and Count Scarleoni, who comes with a pistol, Mona Lisa painting accessory, and interchangeable Scaroth head.
For those not in the know: City of Death saw the Doctor and Romana II (Lalla Ward) investigating a fracture of time in Paris where upon visiting the Louvre, and obtaining an alien bracelet from the Countess Scarleoni (Catherine Schell), the pair become embroiled in a conspiracy by the Count to sell duplicate copies of the Mona Lisa (all original) to fund his diabolical time experiments.
The set is available to pre-order now for £26.99 and are expected to arrive in Forbidden Planet’s mysterious Warehouse of Wonder on the 19th October.
