Doctor Who 5.5″ 8th Doctor Action Figure

“I love humans. Always seeing patterns in things that aren’t there.”

The Eighth Doctor was an effortlessly charming, romantic figure. He was unguarded about his background and equally candid about what the future held for people he came into contact with.



  • Sonic Screwdriver Accessory
  • Karn Chalice Accessory (Cup O’ Karn)
  • Cass’s Bandolier Accessory (removable)

It seems ironic that so much about this open Doctor remains a closed book…His first adventure took place in San Francisco at the turn of the Millennium with Dr Grace Holloway and Chang Lee in an epic battle with the Master.


Much later, after many adventures with many companions, the 8th Doctors fate is finally sealed during the Time War, as he attempts to rescue a pilot, Cass, whose ship was crashing into the planet Karn.

When Cass realized that the Doctor was a Time Lord and her enemy, she refused his help and allowed the ship crash.

    I think I’ll pre-order one from the next shipment from Entertainment Earth. The shipping cost will probably quite high, but I feel like I’m not going to get hold of this figure waiting for it to go back on sale, and then off again, hardly any sooner than it was on…

    I really feel for those fans that paid double/tripple to get this on ebay…only to find its back in stock – ouch!

  • I’m not the doctor if your wondering

    January 30th, 2016 - 5:40pm

    Do you think they will release a couple more 8th doctors as I unfortunately didn’t get my hands on one.

    So far I’ve got 12th doctor polka shirt, Clara, missy, and the 8th doctor should be arriving tomorrow!

    Looks like this has been removed from the toys r us website. So they’ve all gone then?

    • booboo

      January 8th, 2016 - 10:28am

      its possible although i have known stuff to come back on

      if its sold out then in a way its a good sign but was always going to be the biggest demand

      as a matter of interest its by far the most visited individual page on the site last year, even over Missy

      That’s interesting, just goes to show how popular the 8th Dr was. He should be given another chance in my opinion.

      Given that at some point in the future the Dr will reuse some of the old favourite faces (the curator), there’s no reason why the 13th Dr couldn’t be an already seen face ie, Paul MgGann.

    Bought one from ebay just £5 more than TRU which is quite reasonable. This must be quite rare but mine has 2 left hands!

      January 5th, 2016 - 1:56pm

      That explains why you paid so little then.

    • prototype dalek

      January 5th, 2016 - 5:43pm

      well faults tend to worth quite a bit such as miss packed figures

    • shatner

      my 8th doctor has 2 left thighs also my clara has 2 left shoulders. I think its too common to be worth anything.

    Now that this is pretty much gone from TRU, would someone be able to point me in the right direction to somewhere else I can find it (not overpriced)?

      I bought mine from the american amazon, came to 20 pounds including shipping which is the same you’d pay if you had it delivered from TRU

      They are all over America. You can get it at Calendars.Com and it also pops up at Whona every once in awhile. Or as was said, on Amazon
