Doctor Who follows the adventures of the last Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who simply goes by the name “The Doctor”. At the end of the 2013 season, The Doctor regenerated into his new form and new personality, and is portrayed by legendary Scottish actor Peter Capaldi. This new incarnation, the Twelfth Doctor, is a spiky, brusque, pragmatic, yet funny, passionate and fearless character who travels with his companion, Clara Oswald. His adventures with (and without) Clara in the 2014 season lead him to make tough and ruthless decisions that make him question his character and the value of his travels.

12th-doctor-purple7501

This all new 5 inch tall figure showcases the new look The Doctor takes on after the regeneration, featuring his now signature dark blue Crombie-style coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a long collared purple shirt buttoned to the top with no tie, and brogue boots. He also comes with his trusty sonic screwdriver.

Includes:
Sonic Screwdriver

      Great review – just watched it. The figure in your review looks so much better than the official image too.

      I am a massive fan and love all your reviews! I feel that you do a great job of showing off the figures and your time of the doctor review made me really want to buy the set. Keep up the good work, I’m looking forward to what you have to say about the missy figure when it comes out!

      Ah well! It’s a great figure, the shirt (incase some people were wondering) is quite purple, but I personally think it looks fine!

    The shirt is too purple, and, for the majority of ‘Robots of Sherwood’ his top button on the jacket was done up, which, makes this a bit odd for me, but, a nice figure nonetheless. I must admit I was hoping the black one would be out next, that’s the one I’ve been looking forward to most because it will look the most ‘minimalist’, matching Capaldi’s initial desires for the costume so that one for me will be the most like ’12’ for these releases. Does anyone know what’s occurring with that variant though, I’ve heard all sorts? It’s already out in the USA, we’re going to get it here, but only at TRU, any info?

    i am afraid i am still not feeling it,
    have you ever looked at any of the doctors in there outfit and said…”yup thats the one”
    when i saw peter in his first outfit, with the jacket done up and the red lining inside, i said “yup thats him”

    but none of these figures are like that sadly

    If my local forbidden planet does not have the white shirt one next time I’m there I’ll purchase this one because i feel that it works far better than the ridiculous polka-dot one.

      Ok, so just looked up a picture and he wasn’t wearing that colour, it was much more burgandy, but due to the white shirt variation being sold out, in going to get this one, I think the polka shirt variant isn’t great

    • ARandomWhovian

      October 9th, 2015 - 10:39pm

      Yeah, I’ve made a list of inaccruries!

      White Shirt – no waistcoat

      Polka Dot – dots are too big

      Purple Shirt – too purple

      Hopefully the black now will be the best!

      white shirt isnt inaccurate it was seen on screen; but not for long

      They have completely screwed up this series. For a start the 12th Doctor is out of scale with the rest of the Doctors (how can they make that mistake). Secondly for the prices these are being sold at you would expect at least one unique accessory as well as the Sonic (Psychic Paper, Yo-yo, an arrow to stick onto Tardis and a Spoon would have all been nice, cheap but cool accessories).

      I understand the business reason behind the repaints…but I think the White Shirt variant should have had the blue cardigan/waistcoat.

      CO made such a great job of the War Doctor and the Time of the Doctor sets (The Impossible set was ok…11th Doctor is great but Oswin is awful) and the Missy figures look as is they will be good….but they have let us and themselves down with these 12th Doctor releases.

      October 10th, 2015 - 12:25am

      You’ve nailed it A RandomWhovian! I agree with all your observations! I think the black will probably now be the best! There is no way I’m going to buy the polka dot version with those ridiculous, oversized dots or this silly purple version!

      How hard can it be to look at the on-screen costume and copy it exactly!?

    • The Foretold

      October 10th, 2015 - 10:52am

      Ironically, you state the black shirt will be the best, despite it definitely not appearing on screen… 🙂

    • ARandomWhovian

      October 10th, 2015 - 11:40am

      @The Foretold, it was in Time Hist

    • Kribu

      October 10th, 2015 - 4:45pm

      @ARandomWhovian – the Time Heist shirt was actually dark blue. It looks close enough to black on-screen though (and the black is closer to the Time Heist look than this one compared to the one worn in ROS) and I agree it looks best overall.

    A Magician’s Apprentice/ Witch’s Familar set would be easy! Just a bunch of releases with repaints
