“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.

    Would have been interesting if they’d released this figure as a 2 pack with the War Doctor figure, and also have a swappable head of a younger version of the War Doctor to put on this 8th Doctor figures body.

      They’re repainted Oswins aren’t they? She’s certainly never worn that costume in the show.

    Is this the final clue to the fact 5″ are actually back or what? Haha!

      Just feels like we went through a phase of hardly any. Just feels so good to have regular announcements back 🙂

      They’re not stopping the 3.75″ wave

    Wow. This looks awesome. Cant wait to get my hands on it.

  • Balakin

    I don’t like double dipping and I already have the 8th Doctor figure…so I just have to give that away because the NotD version of him is just the best! 😀

    Finally…the most wanted figures for last 2 years! This is what we want….not 4 repaints of the 12th Doctor. Thanks for listening CO/UT…finally.

    Is it just me or is every 2 weeks their announcing/ releasing pictures of new 5inch figures? Never the less I hope we continue this pattern and get:

    Cyberman (2013-present) and includes swappable cyber danny head, emotion in hibiter (One open and one closed) and attachable arm gun

    Ice-Warrior (From Cold War)

    Zygon (DOTD, TZI and TZI)

    Skovox Blitzer

    Davros (TWF and TMA) (Revised paint job and maybe an open eye head)

    The 12th Doctor New variants including:
    White shirt (With waistcoat)
    TMA with Sonic shades and Guitar
    UTL, BTF and LC
    And him in his red velvet coat

    Then a new Clara from flatline.

    That is my main wish list. What does everyone else want to see? (I was mean’t to send my comment here not ask a question)

    • Cyberlord

      October 10th, 2015 - 3:16pm

      This seems good to me, but I don’t think we will be getting any more 12th doctors any time soon. However, I would like to see figures of:
      Kate L-S,
      The Teller,
      Colony Sarff

      Also, but unlikely:
      Simeon (the great intelligence),

      And of coarse, there’s lots more we’d all like made. But this 8th Doctor is amazing!

    • Cyberlord

      October 10th, 2015 - 3:17pm

      Oh, and also, if he is cool, the Fisher King.

    • TheExtremeBlueTARDIS

      October 10th, 2015 - 3:38pm

      I think the most likely figures to be released in 5″, if it continues like this, are:

      Davros (Repaint, with an open eyes head)
      Cyberman (2013-)
      Zygon (DOTD)
      Ice Warrior (Cold War)
      Red Supreme Dalek

      What I would also like:

      The Foretold
      Clara (Not a repaint, perhaps from ‘The Magician’s Apprentice’)
      Colony Sarf
      Ghost (Particularly the Tivolian one)
      The Teller
      Half-Faced Man

      We will never see dr simian as e grant never signs off on likeness for anything.

    • Mechanoid Fan

      October 10th, 2015 - 4:31pm

      I agree with these! We need a cyberman (2013-), Zygon, Ice Warrior etc. Zygomatic are back soon, perfect chance to bring one out!

    • davrosdestroyer

      October 10th, 2015 - 7:55pm

      maybe they can release:

      deep breath set including: half face man12th doctor in robot disguise with swapable head.
      tma/twf set including: davros and doctor swapable body and colony sarff.
      new cyberman
      ice warrior
      ghost (tivoli)
      fisher king
      and clara (tma/twf)

    • davrosdestroyer

      October 10th, 2015 - 9:35pm


      ghost doctor
      dih set including: 12th doctor (white shirt,black cardigan with the invasion cyberman head) cyberman swapable head (danny cyberman) with removable chestplate and clara
      dotd set includes: clara (dotd),bad wolf (rose) and zygon.

      these are all great wish lists but lets face fact – we are not going to be getting much. we will most likely only get
      -straight up rereleases such as the red supreme dalek
      -slightly tweaked or repainted figures such as series 4 davros with eyes painted on
      -brand new figures for significant/ iconic characters only
      unfortunately characters like the foretold, the wispermen and the fisher king will most likely never happen

    • Davrosdestroyer

      October 16th, 2015 - 4:38pm

      I know but imagine getting releases of these and:

      robot thing (gwd)
      12th doctor space suit (though you could take the 10th doctor spacesuit head off).
      osgood (dih).
      and kate.

    • DoctorSong2016

      October 16th, 2015 - 4:44pm

      I think Osgood and Kate are possible, I mean Osgood is a fan favourite and Kate is in a way an important part of doctor who lore

      I agree, but a bit of dry-brushing should fix it

  • Josh anderson

    Will the head be swappable with the 8th doctor head that came with the war doctor?

    • booboo

    October 10th, 2015 - 1:57pm

    Even if this is a 3.75″ figure, I’m still getting it because it looks like the best figure in that scale.

    • Rusty

      October 10th, 2015 - 3:35pm

      No need to worry. It’s 5 inch!

  • CG

    October 10th, 2015 - 1:46pm

    This looks awesome, ever since they released the new 8th doctor head sculpt with the War Doctor, I have hoped for this or dark eyes figure. Awesome!!

    Oh my goodness. I’m speechless. This year has been spectacular in terms of a renaissance for the 5 inch line, and this would be the absolute icing on the cake.


    October 10th, 2015 - 12:49pm

    I hope to god this is real. I love it when unexpected things like this happen. But every time they do I always think I’m dreaming. I really hope I’m not.
    I guess I don’t need to make that custom I planning any more.

  • Anonymous

    October 10th, 2015 - 12:49pm

    The image looks 3.75 scale and as we already know they are working on that, I suspect this is what this is and not the 5 inch…shame.

    • booboo

      October 10th, 2015 - 12:50pm

      It’s been solicited as 5 inch

    • David

      Seems to have the articulation of a 5″

    • Anonymous

      October 10th, 2015 - 1:09pm

      the detail is far too good to be 3.75 inch

    • David

      October 10th, 2015 - 4:14pm

      He who must not be named seems to have stated on Twitter we’re getting both 3.75″ and 5.5″ .
      This image is of the 3.75″ however apparently.

    • booboo

      October 10th, 2015 - 4:18pm

      Don’t understand why they would solicit a 5″ figure with a picture of the 3,75″

    • The Silent Silent

      October 10th, 2015 - 4:21pm

      If the 3.75″ looks this good we are in for a real treat with the 5″ version !

      October 10th, 2015 - 4:50pm

      pretty sure its 5 heres 3.75 for comparison looks similar but not the same/Users/james/Downloads/image.jpeg

      It looks like it is removable. …as it should because technically, the 8th Doctor never wore it, he only picked it up after he regenerated into the War Doctor.
