The sneaky folks at Underground Toys today revealed a new upcoming 5″ figure release – the “Other” Doctor (or War Doctor) from the 50th anniversary special ‘Day of the Doctor’. From the figure’s description:
The ‘Other Doctor’ is the Doctor’s dark chapter, an _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.
Featuring the likeness of John Hurt this figure includes his sonic screwdriver, The Moment Accessory an an Eight Doctor alternate head. While this isn’t the costume the 8th Doctor was wearing in the ‘Night of the Doctor’ mini-sode – we’ll take it. Expect this figure in February.
Thanks Underground Toys! Now about that Yeti…
