    While I have nothing but praise for B&M and how they’ve kept the 5.5″ Doctor Who line alive and the fantastic sets they’ve released (particularly last August’s gorgeous eight set wave) I wish there was an easier way to get them than this!! Waiting and hoping for them to arrive in stores any feeling of excitement is totally matched by a equal feeling of stress lol !

      Completely agree with every point there. Brief joy, immediate panic and stress for up to several weeks, followed by sometimes relief, sometimes severe disappointment. It’s genuinely a horrible process and can be so difficult for customers without time/transport. But, as you say, I love the range, too, and so grateful we have a store in the UK supporting it like this. I’d happily pay to a nominal fee to ‘reserve in store’ and ‘click and collect’, though.

      I totally agree, and well expressed. I wish there was some kind of ‘reserve in store’ system, limited to one or two of each set per customer. Would be so much better for people’s nerves.
      I don’t do too badly in getting to my B&M store as I am within a 15 minute walk from work, and can make time. But the Dalek and TARDIS sets sell out so quickly that you’ve got to be there within half a day of them being on shelves really. I’m not too confident in asking in store, and definitely not on the phone, but that’s what you need to learn to do really.

      Thanks, Steve. I agree with you, too- not at all confident either, especially by phone, but the lowest chance for success is just turning up and hoping. ‘Click and collect’ would solve so much of this for customers who just want personal use items, and doesn’t impact sales at all if it’s a purchase made at the point of reservation- if anything, it helps monitor stock control needs more accurately. Fingers crossed B&M could give it some thought.

      Sadly I no longer bother with B&M in trying to find stores that stock them & all the hassle it entails. I have purchased all off of ebay during the last 3 years & it’s all completely stress free now – Lovely!

    I’ve just bought this from the Brunel Retail Park store in Reading. They have all 3 Dalek two packs at the moment.

    Seems more accurate to the actual audio design which is good with that added blue

      Possibly heading there later- I’ll let you know if there’s any sign.

      Posted on the ‘stocks arrive’ page- basically no and they don’t think small stores like that one are getting this range (but it’s such a large order I find that unlikely).

    B&M have gone through the whole rainbow for the Dalek hemispheres now they’re moving on to 50 shades of blue beginning with pewter blue. Recession? What recession they all say as they roll in my money.

    Loving the colours on Hurt here! Passed on this set the first around, but almost certain to grab one this time around!

      It looks so great here.

    Did they alter the colour on the Dalek or is that just the way its photographed?

    • Li H’sen Chang

      Almost a certainty that colours have been altered. Looks as if the grey has been augmented with some much welcome blue.

    I picked up the original version of this set fairly recently. I wouldn’t mind getting this variation as well with the semi-TV Movie Doctor wearing his hat.

      Sorry, I meant for this comment to be given to the seventh Doctor set.
