Leela Signed Edition Figure

Doctor Who - Classic Leela Figure Signed by actress Louise Jameson!Here’s a great new special edition Doctor Who classic figure – Leela as seen in 1976′s The Face of Evil!

Fresh from Dragon*Con, this rare release comes with a special card, signed by Leela herself, actress Louise Jameson!

The run length is very limited – around 500 and your set is individually numbered on the top right of the inserted autograph card.

A brief reminder of The Face of Evil now, in which the TARDIS arrives on a planet where a savage tribe called the Sevateem worship a god called Xoanon. The Fourth Doctor discovers that Xoanon is in fact a spaceship computer that he tried to repair at some point in his past and inadvertently drove mad by giving it a multiple personality!

Leela, of course, is a member of the Sevateem tribe who are caught in a perpetual war with another tribe of humanoids, the ascetic Tesh who maintain Xoanon. These are the descendants of the ship’s original technicians, while the Sevateem are the descendants of the original survey team. With the help of Leela, the Doctor manages to gain access to the ship and wipe the additional personalities from the computer, leaving it sane and in proper control once more.

And not long after, the Doctor has a new companion who he eventually leaves behind on Gallifrey…

Available only to customers in the UK and Eire, this special edition figure is available from Forbidden Planet for just £24.99 and is released on September 15th!
