The Keeper of Traken

It’s Time for Melkur!

The Keeper of TrakenThe Keeper of the Traken has everything – a society built on everybody just being jolly nice to each other coming under threat by a living statue (Doctor Who was way ahead of the curve with the hatred for living statues), a surprise return for the most diabolical villain in the shows history, and an unusual, quirky look at a familiar sci-fi idea on the way towards the end of Tom Baker#s reign as the Doctor.

So why not celebrate all that’s great about this serial with the Doctor Who: Action Figure Collectors Set: The Keeper of the Traken figure collection which is exclusively available at Forbidden Planet.

The set includes the Fourth Doctor in his waistcoat, the decaying body of the Master, the mighty Melkur Statue, the Master’s ‘Grandfather Clock’ cloaked TARDIS and Source Manipulator Sphere.

The set is available now from Forbidden Planet for a not-inconsiderable price of £39.99.


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.
