It seems that the merchandise machine for the 50th anniversary is starting to kick into high gear as November looms ever closer with the latest addition to the list being the 1000 piece collectors edition jigsaw from Winning Moves.
The puzzle features the now iconic painting of the exploding TARDIS, created in the show by Vincent van Gogh in the season five finale The Pandorica Opens, and lets be honest, if you’re going to make a jigsaw you want it to be a challenge and looking at the picture again I think this certainly fits the bill, though I was surprised at just how long it took me to make the relatively ‘easy’ 500 piece puzzle featuring the Gallifrey Eleven; Tennant and Smith’s hair almost finished me off completely. So Rassilon alone knows just how I’ll fare with this beast.
Winning Moves UK’s Head of Marketing, Fiona Hortopp commented that:
Winning Moves UK is proud to be celebrating the Time Lord’s anniversary with these exciting new games. Doctor Who has captured the imaginations of generations of people for the past fifty years and we’re confident these games will appeal to fans of all ages and enhance their celebrations of the Doctor’s half century on the BBC.
The new Doctor Who licensed games will be available to buy on the High Street from a wide range of retailers including WH Smith, Toys R Us, Waterstones, Tesco, Asda, and John Lewis and various online stores.
Released on October 6th 2013, this 1000-piece jigsaw can be ordered now for just £12.99 from Forbidden Planet.
Will you be expecting this for Christmas?
