Robert Harrop Doctor Who 1968 Yeti

Available to order from www.robertharrop.com

The TARDIS narrowly avoids becoming engulfed in a web-like substance in space. It then arrives in the London Underground railway system, the tunnels of which are being overrun by the web and by the Great Intelligence’s robot Yeti.

The Doctor, along with companions Victoria and Jamie, learn that this crisis was precipitated when Professor Travers, whom they first met in the Himalayas some forty years earlier, accidentally caused one of the Yeti to be reactivated, opening the way for the Intelligence to make another invasion attempt.

The Great Intelligence has no physical form but it is capable of communicating, both by itself and through possession of living creatures. The TARDIS is trapped in space by a web-like material of which The Great Intelligence can create anywhere and has properties which interfere with the TARDIS systems.

The Great Intelligence and the Yeti make their first appearance in ‘The Abominable Snowmen’during the time of the Second Doctor, portrayed by Patrick Troughton.

    Can I ask what experiences people have of P&P and delivery direct from Robert Harrop.

    Do they use a courier or Royal Mail.
    Is p&p between £2.50 (normal figure) and £5 (TARDIS)?

      They use Royal Mail, in my experience anyway. P+P charges are usually £2.50 for one figure. I have just ordered the 5 new figures and that cost me £7.50. I have had no problems with them, items are packed well.

    This I think is the best of the 5 new figurines but ordered them all as they are great character choices.

    How would this scale to the normal figure range? A little too tall?

      Would it matter for a character like the yeti as they were quite large anyway?
