The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule DVD Book & Figure Set

The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule Set

Available to order at £55.99 limited to 5000 sets

The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule will be released on July 29. 

The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule – available to pre-order now – is an individually numbered deluxe box-set, containing exclusive content and memorabilia from Tom Baker’s era on Doctor Who, including a newly-commissioned interview with the man himself – An Interview with the Time Lord.

Alongside the interview package, the set contains an advance vanilla release of the restored Terror of the Zygons, set to be released in full later this year. Telling the tale of shape-shifting aliens attempting to colonize the Earth, Terror of the Zygons introduces the titular monsters, who are set to return in the 50th anniversary special.


From witnessing the genesis of the Daleks to preventing the death of the universe at Logopolis, the Fourth Doctor was an adventurer on an epic scale. Armed with a gleeful smile, swashbuckling charm and righteous morality, he defeated Sontarans, ancient vampires and the Black Guardian.


It was this incarnation of the Doctor that found and reassembled the Key to Time, that tried to reason with Davros at the birth of the Daleks, and was invested as Lord President of the High Council of Time Lords. Always selfless, his fourth body died saving the universe from the Master. But that moment had been prepared for…


With a limited run of 5000 units, the Time Capsule also includes:

  • An exclusive post-regenerative Fourth Doctor action figure, wearing Jon Pertwee’s trademark frill-fronted shirt
  • A Fourth Doctor sonic screwdriver.
  • An audio version of classic Tom Baker story Genesis of the Daleks.
  • Novel Tomb of Valdemar by Simon Messingham, set during the Doctor’s search for the Key to Time.
  • Art cards of all the Fourth Doctor’s companions.
  • And a letter from Tom Baker himself

Amazon have a slightly different (and probably early draft ) promotional image…

      You know the sleeve on the outside? The one that says the name of the box and the picture and list of contents? On the back, it shows the number.

    I’ve received mine today. It is absolutely lovely! The box is brilliant and everything inside is brilliant. I’ve never seen Terror Of The Zygons before. I’m so glad I’ve seen it now. It’s one of my favourite Fourth Doctor stories now. Brilliant letter from Tom as well. Mine was number 4191 out of 5000. It’s well worth the money. 😀
