The Three Doctors Collectors Set 1972 – Pictures

The Three Doctors Collectors Set 1972

This item can be ordered from Please note this item is exclusive to Forbidden Planet international in the UK.

Don’t forget our interactive Doctor Who Classic Lists where you can see every classic 5″ figure ever made and save which one you own. There are also handy filers to see which figures have been made in each of The Doctors Era’s or see only companions, Masters etc.


A gel-like plasma creature arrives on Earth and hunts down the third Doctor, who calls on the Time Lords for help. The Time Lords themselves are in crisis as their energy is being drawn off into a black hole. They send the Doctor’s earlier selves to join him.


The first Doctor, caught in a time eddy and able only to advise, deduces that the creature is a time bridge. The third Doctor and Jo then give themselves up to it and are transported to a world of antimatter beyond the black hole.


On Earth, the second Doctor is forced to take refuge in the TARDIS along with the Brigadier and Sergeant Benton. On the advice of the first Doctor he switches off the ship’s force field, and the whole UNIT building is transported through the black hole.


Behind these events is Omega, a figure from Time Lord history whose solar engineering provided the power for time travel.


He has been trapped in the black hole ever since and now wants the Doctor to swap places with him, but it transpires that the corrosive properties of his domain have already destroyed his physical form, leaving only his will.

This Gel Guard was lit with a lamp under a glass table – it looks superb…

    A great set! The highlight is the Brigadier, Jo is much better without her jacket on too. Her jacket arms are a little stiff, and the Gel Guard is just a bit of fun. 3/5

      If they’re going to make obscure supporting characters, I think Lytton from Attack of the Cybermen, Nyder from Genesis of the Daleks and Lytton without Dalek helmet from Resurection of the Daleks would be the most appropriate candidates.

      By the way, we need the Trial of a Timelord with Valeyard and Doctor, with accurately large affro on the Doctor ❗

    • drjakeyoung

      February 1st, 2013 - 1:25pm

      trial of a time lord is a must have!

    • Dalek The Supreme

      February 19th, 2013 - 9:14pm

      *Remembrance of the Daleks set w/Ace, Imperial Dalek, and Special Weapons Dalek
      *Earthshock set w/Tegan, Adric, Cyberleader, and Cyberman w/Thermo-Lance
      *Trial of a Time Lord set w/Inquisitor, 6th Doctor w/red tie and accurate hair, and the Valeyard
