The War Doctor Crashes Daleks Into Forbidden Planet!
Let’s face it: we’ve all been waiting for a figure of the War Doctor/Hurt Doctor/8.5th Doctor/9th Doctor (or whatever numbering/naming system you use). Thanks to Forbidden Planet, you can now place your orders for the lost incarnation of the Time Lord.
Equipped with Sonic Screwdriver and The Moment (sans Bad Wolf Girl), the figure conversely comes with an Eighth Doctor head.
We recognise the continuity issues this might create in your private retelling of The Night of the Doctor; it’s out of our hands, yeah? But who cares – IT’S FIVE INCHES TALL, PEOPLE!
The ‘Other Doctor’ is the Doctor’s dark chapter, a hitherto unknown incarnation whose existence he has spent centuries repressing, a secret he wants no one to know of.
He is a relic of the past, part of the great Time War, when he spent centuries fighting alongside his fellow Time Lords against the Daleks and made the final decision to end it with a desperate act that cost that incarnation the right to use the name “Doctor”. This haunted and battle-worn Other Doctor is finally forgiven after helping find a new solution to end the war, giving the Eleventh Doctor a new purpose as he heads into further adventures.
Shipping from February 28th, you can place your order for the reasonably priced £14.99 figure at Forbidden Planet now!
