4th Doctor Time Capsule DVD Book & Figure Set

Available to order for £29.99 while stocks last from www.zavvi.com

The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule 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.


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

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.

time-set

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.

time-set-2

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…

    Sorry if this has already been answered but accessing the web from my phone and having problemsloading the content.

    Is the figure by CO and in the 5 insh scale? Does it have its own packing or come loose inthe set…and, in your opinion what’s the chances of this figre or a slight variatuion of it being released seperately. Nonw of the other stuff interests me besides the Zygons DVD but that wil be reeased properly later so the only selling point is the figure…for 62 squid…they know what they’re doing! Annoying!

      yes it is by CO and 5″, dont know about the packaging.

      I would guess this figure will remain exclusive, at least for a long times, this is a high profile release and many will buy it for the figure alone

    Great figure idea, they should do it with others, it would be nice though if we did get more regeneration sets, now we have that mold, they can put Pertwees head back on. Is that a new head entirely or just hair?

      Obviously they have an advantage with terror of the Zygons which they dont have for any other Doctor

      Unless they animated some missing ones or put colour into a Pertwee… But that would take time

    GETTING!!! 😀 The figure looks brilliant but i have a few questions about it:
    1) What is the book with the cogs on the cover?
    2) Is the figure of the 4th doctor in 3rd doctor clothes?
    3) What are the other DVD’s? (there are 3 covers)
    4) What is that scroll of paper that looks old?
    5) Will i be able to order on BBC shop?

      because it’s the last t. baker story to be released, and they’re sort of doing the same thing by releasing it slightly earlier like they did with tenth planet 🙂

    Just ordered the set, I’m not in it for the figure, I’ll probably just end up selling it on EBay and getting a bit of my money back from the set and make sure someone gets the figure if they can’t afford the price of the set. Really excited for this! Can’t wait to see if they will be doing anymore Doctors, which I would think they would.

      It’s a blind game with exclusives I think, mine will probably be on EBay the day it arrives so will just wait and see what it goes for, just hope it won’t go for a silly price, hate seeing figures going to extortionate prices!

    • booboo

      July 9th, 2013 - 12:37pm

      if the set is sold out before its release than its any ones guess

      £30-£40 otherwise i would say

    • HalfPintOfInnes

      July 9th, 2013 - 1:12pm

      So I’d get a fair amount of my money back, well that’s alright, I don’t really mind what I get for it, better than just having it lying around not being used

    • Ryan Denyerr

      July 9th, 2013 - 4:20pm

      So your spending £62 on a set that your not going to use or open but put on Ebay the day it arrives and get £30-40 making a profit of (at a maximum) £-22 that makes a lot of sense…

    • HalfPintOfzinnes

      July 9th, 2013 - 4:49pm

      No, I’m spending £62 on a set that I’m going to use, all apart from the figure, which I am selling, and as booboo said, I would get £30-£40 on the figure alone.

    • booboo

      July 9th, 2013 - 4:50pm

    With the bbcshop promo code that knocks £6 off which take’s it too about £57 – Plus free postage & packing. The cost of the individual items exceeds that price, so for a deluxe individually numbered limited edition I think it’s woth the price. With the figure being exclusive to this set I think it will soon sell out…

    Bit of a let down on the figure I think, it’s nice but they could have made something better, then again I suppose it did have to be a Tom baker figure seeing as it is his boxset
