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…

    Theirs one problem I have with this figure the hair. If anyone has or has watched “Robot” when he is lying on the floor when he’s just regenerated I know his fringe was big but still when you see him in his pyjamas his hair is like the hair on the 2008 Classic Series Wave 1 Varient. I see what Charater were trying to do but we can’t lie this figure down on our shelves.

      BTW I know BooBoo said this was a factory reject but I just hope the actual figure will be better when we see a proper image before I’m prepared to spend 62.99.

      I don’t think they’ll be doing one for any other doctors and if they do then they will most certainly not be doing a letter from the first 3 doctors for obvious reasons

      I would love those sets like I said below, love to see other doctors time capsules because why would they pick just the 4th doctor because fans have there favourites (mine being:10th, 7th, 1st and 11th) and because it is a great product ranges.

    • Some bloke

      July 10th, 2013 - 11:44am

      i think it may only be the 4th because he IS the doctor. I know everyone has their favourites (mine being the 4th) but it’s because he is the definitive doctor. He reigns supreme over all others 🙂

      All Doctors are equal. But to me, Pertwee is the legend of Classic Who and Tennant of New Who.

    • Some bloke

      July 10th, 2013 - 11:51am

      basically, it’s highly likely that they won’t be doing any other doctor time capsules. If they were going to, they would have started at the 1st doctor. They wouldn’t have trailed it as ‘#thefourth’ if they were going to do all doctors, then they probably would have called it something like ‘#timecapsule’ or ‘#timecapsulethe1st’ and so on

      Well since this is baker from the first 5 mins of “robot” he will have pertwees sonic as he literally just regenerated.

    • drjakeyoung

      July 10th, 2013 - 12:43pm

      No, in Frontier in space, he changed the sonic to look like the fourth doctor’s sonic. So that picture where he is holding the 3rd doctors screwdriver, is wrong. But as booboo said, it’s only a draft 🙂

      Yes i can see how that would work. Just Photoshop away the bow tie, add Tom’s head and there we have it!

    • Roosta

      July 10th, 2013 - 5:15pm

      Just to add, the Amazon photo and the BBC one are different figures (check the legs – boots in the Photoshop mock-up, shoes in the BBC one) so the BBC one will be closer to, if not actually, the final figure.

    • Some bloke

      July 9th, 2013 - 6:29pm

      I would say that they wrote out for him what they wanted him to say, then he wrote it, and then they copied 5000 times. It’s a shame, but of course you can’t expect a 79 year old man to write out one letter 5000 times can you 🙁

    • Doc3Pertwee

      July 9th, 2013 - 6:32pm

      Thanks for the information. That makes complete sense of course. It was more a curiosity of whether he had signed each letter but again it would a lot to ask I agree.

    • Some bloke

      July 9th, 2013 - 6:55pm

      oh yeah, it’s a possibility he signed them individually, but again, that may be a stretch too far. Oh well, it will just be nice to read the words with tom’s voice in our heads

    For the price, if I get this, I don’t think I will want to touch it, open it or play the DVDs, I think its too nice, and would make a great collectable that will be worth lots in the coming years when everyone else has opened them etc.

      I think that image may have been a sort of tester image, just to show what the final product may be like. Either that or for some reason amazon thought ‘let’s make our own image’ HA. To be honest, I’m not bothered if the figure or sonic have their own packaging or not, I just cant wait to get it 😀
