The Flesh Bowl

Going, Going, Nearly Gone: The Flesh Bowl

First we had The Flesh Pod- complete with a broken biscuit assortment of Doctor action figures wading in the glop – but we can also harness the Flesh and create our own Gangers! It’s becoming rarer and rarer, so if you want your own duplicate, you’ll have to get on it fast.

The ‘Flesh Bowl’ figure creator lets fans mould their own Doctor Gangers using pump action injector to torment/discuss the ethical quandary of cloning with their other Doctor Who figures.

‘The ‘Flesh Bowl’ is pretty much the same as this Terminator 2: Judgement Day set – the T2 Bio-Flesh Regenerator Toy – where you could create your own genital-less Terminators (maybe it was the Steroids) whose flesh would peel away in combat and that, thanks to an ill-timed sigh, meant that my younger brother has to go to A & E with Terminator powder in his eyes.

Let this be a warning…

Of course, you could try adding some red powder or something to it and see if you could recreate The Crimson Horror instead. That may damage it beyond repair, but hey, it’d be cool!

The set is nowhere to be found in Forbidden Planet stores, but you can still get one from Amazon UK for just £9.75 (a heavy reduction from the original £29.99 price tag).


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.
