    Hey all, I want to get into 8th doctor big finish, is Dark eyes a good place to start? Like would I be able to start with dark eyes and continue onwards without listening to the previous audio dramas? I’d probably read up on them but Dark Eyes is the one that I really want to start

    • George

      July 1st, 2020 - 3:34pm

      Yes, you can start there. There’s nothing major that needs to be listened to before. Although maybe check up to see how the Series 4 ended.

    • Doctor 909

      July 1st, 2020 - 4:04pm

      Yeah, Dark Eyes is designed to be a jumping on point and is pretty good. Doom Coalition, Ravenous & Stranded (though I’d beg to differ with Ravenous as it does continue a fair bit of Doom Coalition’s plot threads) are also designed to be a jumping on point whilst also continuing the 8th Doctor’s story. I’d defo recommend starting them, the 8th Doctor Adventures are probably my favourite Big Finish range

    • Drunk Giraffe

      July 1st, 2020 - 4:37pm

      Possibly Dark Eyes is where I started, although it will spoil the ending of the 8DAs with Lucie heavily. I’d actually recommend Stranded instead as it’s easily the best thing Big Finish have done in years and is completely stand alone other than knowing one companion is from the 1960s and the other the far future. Although you’ll still get a lot from listening from Dark Eyes onwards as I did. Enjoy it, I’d also recommend joining the Divergent Universe forum and interacting with BF community on Twitter.

      difficult to tell from the one image, the head is much bigger on the real thing than the picture suggests needs to see more angles really

    An odd idea for a b&m set but for you think character could do a “coats” set, where they don’t change a head sculpt but they change the coat piece, so for a 11, his green coat, for 12 his longer series 10 black coat with red hoodie and for 13 her black spyfall coat (don’t know if it’s possible to change the shirt sculpt)

    If any of you collected the 3.75 inch Character Range do you know if the Doctor’s heads are easily swappable?


    • Rick Astley

      June 28th, 2020 - 4:18pm

      11 and 12 are easily swappable. I think 10 was more difficult.

    • Anonymous

      June 28th, 2020 - 4:31pm

      Easily swappable the build quality is very weak

    • daz

      June 28th, 2020 - 5:45pm


      I’ve just bought 1 of 10/11/12.

      If I don’t like 12th head in hand I will get the raised eyebrow one to swap.

      Only got them to go with figurine consoles as my figurines of 10, 11 and 12 are not the best with their paint applications.

    Does anyone know if there’s a way to make the head move on the remote control 5” supreme Dalek. I ordered what I thought was a standard one simply because of the fact I didn’t like that my remote control version didn’t have any articulation but it turns out the one they sent me was another remote control on, only without any controls or batteries which I’m not bothered about but I’m just annoyed that now I’ve got a second version with no articulation

    • booboo

      June 26th, 2020 - 8:29am

      no what happened was when the collection was started and then for some time the only thing available was the magazine cover so it was put under magazines when 1st announced to let people know what was coming, then when the item arrived we took pictures of the actual figure and set up a separate category for it under collectables, we just carried that on ever since.

    Would anyone happen to know if B&M Crawley have any B&M sets (ideally the 8th Dr & Dalek set). I know they barely get any of the sets ever but it’s be greatly appreciated if anyone knows!

    • Doctor Stu

      Not sure about B&M but there are a few on amazon and eBay for quite low prices

    • booboo

      June 26th, 2020 - 9:10am

      scan this bar code with the B&M app, it will tell you where your nearest stock is (not 100% reliable but worth a try) This for the last 8th Doctor Dalek set

    • booboo

      June 26th, 2020 - 10:29am

      should say its the same bar code for all 3 sets no way to distinguish

    Good Morning Everybody.
    I have a question about pre-ordering from Rubbertoe replicas.
    I have Pre-ordered the new Sonic Screwdriver and was wondering
    a) what number screwdriver in the production order I am e.g. sonic no.124 of 300
    b) How long is it between pre-ordering and making the final payment, as I have paid a 50% deposit but want to know when that final payment is due, obviously cause £400 is alot of money.
    If anybody has pre-ordered from Rubbertoe before and has any advice I would be very grateful.
    Kind regards,
    The Silent Silent

    • Thedoctor1104

      June 25th, 2020 - 10:48am

      1) You will receive and email soon saying what number you are. They do these manually I think so can sometimes take time.
      2) the rest of the money is due around 2 weeks before they ship your order. Depending on how many there are before you it could vary. My 11th doctor sonic was number 69 and I ordered before the run had started so it was about a year before I was charged the second amount.
      Hope this helps!

    • The Silent Silent

      June 25th, 2020 - 10:54am

      Forgot to mention the Sonic I have pre ordered is the 10th Doctors One.
      Kind regards

    • Thedoctor1104

      June 25th, 2020 - 12:37pm

      I imagine it will be around the same kind of time frame but not 100% sure. They haven’t started producing them yet so there is still a wait before they start.

    Booboo was the Trans-Temporal Sonic Screwdriver ever released in the UK? I can’t ever remember seeing it or buying it? I have only just noticed it has the UT Logo on with the US Choking Warning Tab & seem’s compatible with the Make Your Own Sonic 3-Pack that was released in the UK.

    And any idea what the next season will be as part of the blu ray collection?

    • Anonymous

      I think Fury is September-October time.
      People are saying that the next blu-rays are either Season 20 or Season 11.

    • Gordon

      June 24th, 2020 - 10:15am

      Fury is out 14th September according to zavvi. I’ve heard it’s either 20 or 2 but most likely 20.

    • Anonymous

      June 25th, 2020 - 6:59am

      For Season 2 they’d have to animate 2 missing episodes of The Crusade. I can’t exactly see them animating them just for a Blu-ray release. So, yeah possibly 20.

    • Anomalous

      June 25th, 2020 - 8:54pm

      They don’t “have” to animate anything. Crusade is more likely to be a reconstruction than an animation

    • Gordon

      June 25th, 2020 - 9:43pm

      Due to how expensive it is with the sheer amount of cast costumes and sets the collection range will be finished by the time the crusade becomes a suggestible release with animation. It’s the 2nd biggest story in terms of Sets characters and costumes (galaxy 4, evil and abominable combined). Can’t see them doing crusade when there are far more easier and cheaper stories that can be done. It will most likely be a telesnap reconstruction that will be on the collection release.

    Does anyone else find the new Judoon Eaglemoss figurine to be really poor quality. It’s a lot smaller than the last one, the skin is wrong, the hair is wrong, the gun is tiny, and it has no devices on its belt. It looks like a completely different merchandise version of the Judoon that’s supposed to intentionally look disproportionate and cartoony

    The weeping angel tho is amazing

    • JL

    I’m currently chatting with an eBay seller who makes plastic boxes to protect old videogames boxes for SNES, N64 etc.

    I’ve sent him measurements of the Bluray Season box sets (6, 7 and 8 discs) to see what he comes up with as I’d like to add further protection to mine.

    Would this be of interest to anyone else on here?

    If yes I will post the results if I get what I need.

      Hi everyone.

      Ebay guy has checked all his current plastic boxes for videogames and none quite match what we need exactly.

      I display mine with cover facing forward so eventually will be a wall of Doctors like one big piece of artwork (without the J-card is my plan). But I know most will want to display it like normal with the spine on view.

      He’s gonna get back to me once he has looked into costings as would need to create them first.

      I know the heights of my boxes weren’t exactly the same due to how they are contructed so gave him the tallest measurement so there is a slight give and take. I’ve also made him aware that some of the 60’s stuff will have 9 or 10 discs potentially changing the width of the spine again.

      So could be a while but I’ve made a note of your names so can reply directly to you whenever it may be on here.

      No doubt we’ve got about 7 years to go before we’ll have the complete set anyway.
