    does any one else think that character should bring back the 3.75 figures as they were really bringing out so many of them and they are probably easier to make so they could make more characters that way like the new master!

      The figures were improving, but that cheap and nasty packaging let the side down. If the packaging was like the Star Wars or retroaction 3.75 figures with photograph pictures on the cardboard etc.

      You have to compare the two scales lifespans to one another, the 5 inch line ran for the longest and had the most releases of single card and figure packs. It also had sub-line that focused on the classic era of the series which saw a good few dalek sets released and other hard to find sets.

      The 3.75 line had nothing close to that, though the selection of figures were impressive and it did try its hand at doing classic figures the scale did not have the same popularity with fans and the constantly changing packaging most likely didn’t help either. Not only that the offerings of figures came out far slower compared to the constant slew of figures we got back during the Tennant and Smith eras.

      The conclusion I personally draw is that the BBC are playing it safe, they know what sells and are trying to kick start the figure line once again. You could consider the release of the Dalek and classic figure packs as them testing the waters and we all know how successful that was. I don’t see the 3.75 scale returning as it just does not make sense from a business standpoint

    If eaglemoss have problems with some of the paint spray applications on some of their more trickier pieces, wouldn,t it be easier to just use stickers as they did with The emojibot? The Black/ white internal column for Firsts console being one case in point.

    Completely random thought but… If the Doctor and a companion goes to somewhere like France and there’s somebody there who’s speaking actual English to them instead of French, Then how would they tell? With the whole TARDIS translation matrix. Because the Doc would be speaking French and so would the person but it would sound like English. And then say the person says ‘excuse me I can’t understand you because I don’t speak French’. How would the Doctor then switch to English from French. If she’s already speaking French, but the viewer is hearing English and the guy is hearing French.

    That’s a wibbly wobbly sentence and I respect anybody who can make sense out of that absolute mess of a paragraph

      Don’t think about it stu! The rules of translation have always been dodgy. In four to doomsday why can’t the doctor understand what the aboriginal chief is saying? Why doesn’t the tardis translate it for him. Tegan seems to be able to understand a language that was 50,000 years before her time In the reign of terror is Stirling speaking French or English in the last episode when he reveals his identity? Best thing is to just accept it makes no sense and forget about it!

      There is an argument that the doctor is always speaking her native language but everyone hears their own. And yes, that makes no sense either.

    Amazon are at it again! Noticed that the new book, the runaway tardis by Kim Smith is priced £12.79 for the hardback. There is no paperback listing. But I’ve ordered it from waterstones in hardcover at £6.99. Now if you go on Amazon and go into the authors name the book comes up as a £6.99 hardcover that doesn’t show up anywhere in the main listings! I buy classic crime books and Amazon do the same thing with them. They only show the twice the price American versions of the books and not the cheaper English ones. You have to hunt for those!

      If you search doctor who under titles it only brings up the more expensive version. I’ve just checked, put runaway tardis in title and it only brought up the expensive one as well. It may be something Amazon do to customers randomly.

      Never mind cave of skulls still exists it was just BritBox being rubbish. It skipped from episode 1 straight to episode 5 and then I noticed episode 2 was available to watch on other online sites so got confused as to why it wasn’t on BritBox.

      But it was and the app had just skipped over it for some reason

      My understanding from what they’ve said on Facebook is that the part of BBC Studios handling the merchandise approval had massive lay offs, and Warlord’s miniatures aren’t making a lot of money so they’ve focused elsewhere and left Warlord in the lurch.

      Hi. Alan from Warlord here. Just to reassure everyone, we have about ten sets lined up for this year. Several are stuck in approvals, that’s both with actor likenesses and packaging etc. Because sales have been lower than expected for last year, our Judge Dredd range has taken priority for the time being, but rest assured new sets will be coming later in the year.
