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…

      He said at the end of the review he ordered his from Amazon because he thought BBC Shop was unreliable great to hear since so many of us ordered from BBC Shop which is £5.00 cheaper yet Amazon send theirs earlier. Hopefully ours will be here tomorrow.

    I found a picture of the figure with 2 heads the head that looks like the wave one release and the other head which we first saw which I don’t really like but I think we might be seeing 2 heads with this figure? Might be wrong.

      I’m not lying or anything type in on Google Images Doctor Who Fourth Doctor Time Capsule and click on an image which shows the Regenerated Fourth Doctor in this set but with the Season 12 Fourth Doctor’s head on his body. This means you can swap round heads.

      In view of some recent events not really interested in promoting sites who are singled out to receive this stuff early here

      when the tv advert for 3.75″ figures was sent out we had 3500 embedded hits on the 1st day, these so called big sites got a few hundred at best

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby

      So can you swap heads or not?

    • Some bloke

      July 29th, 2013 - 4:25pm

      personally, I would say no. If you could swap heads then they would probably included a second head, or a Pertwee head from ‘Planet of Spiders’, although that would spoil the idea of it being a ‘Fourth Doctor Time Capsule’

When I asked about this box set at my local sci fi shop I was told £65 and for sone strange reason the bbc have put the price. I wish the bbc would make up thier minds with regard to the price of it

      And no, we haven’t had any official region 2 covers for zygons or scream of the shalka, although there artowrk for the region 1 covers which is the same, has been released. No artwork for moonbase or tenth planet have been released yet

    The BBC have now reduced the price to £55.99 so if you use the promo discount code list below then you get this for just over £50….now that’s more like it.

    If you have already ordered it from the BBC shop at the full price or without the promo code, you can always cancel and rebook all on line.
