B&M 2022 The First Doctor and Electronic Tardis Set

The five new Doctor Who classic lines will be available in November 2022 at B&M stores nationwide.

We think fans will be both delighted and surprised with this rather unique set. This action figure set includes:

  • The First Doctor as portrayed by David Bradley
  • Electronic TARDIS

As fans know, in the first ever episode of the TV show we encounter the TARDIS and its owner and pilot, an alien traveller known only as The Doctor. It’s the start of a great number of adventures over many years.

Since that first show the First Doctor has been played both on screen, and in audio format, by several actors but David Bradley in both the dramatization of the early years of Doctor Who ‘An Adventure in Space & Time’ and in the twelfth Doctor Story ‘Twice Upon A Christmas’ as well as many Big Finish audio adventures, giving a very unique and powerful portrayal which really captured the essence of William Hartnell’s First Doctor.

Speaking of this wave of releases Al Dewar, Creative Director at Character Options, said: “This range has some real gems in it, including some not so easy to spot ones. The three figure sets are very cool and there’s at least one standout figure in each set, including a new Ninth Doctor with new components and an updated Rose V1. We also have a brand-new Angel variant as well as a physically new version of Yaz. Collectors will delight in looking for both variants of the Angel figure.

“With the Dalek sets – this time we have two absolute standout pieces with ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ and my personal favourite Dalek story ‘Destiny of the Daleks’. For me it has everything and I love the look of the battered war worn Daleks. Following that and much to my own delight, is a new First Doctor figure in the form of David Bradley’s Doctor paired with a very unique looking TARDIS based more on the TARDIS look in the BBC 2013 anniversary drama story which covered the creation of the TV series.

“Lastly to go hand in hand with the Dalek sets is a great special release featuring Davros and a very special Dalek … all I can say is fans will not want to miss out on that one!”

    Jeeeeze, this set is now priced at £20 according to the B&M website (though all the sets are now no longer available to purchase on the website itself). It’s weird that the former sale price (Used to saled ‘Was £32.99 NOW £24.99’) is now the default price and it now says ‘Was £24.99 NOW £20.00’.

    Are they having trouble shifting them!?!?

      I noticed that, it could just be to drive traffic into stores though. That being said I’ve not been to a b&m in a while so maybe there are lots to be found. I wouldn’t mind a second one for customs, so I might take another look…

    I noticed the TARDIS set has now completely disappeared from B&M’s website so I guess we can assume all online stock has now gone and it’s a case of trying to find one in store or on dreaded greedbay?!

    This set changed back to ‘temporarily out of stock’ and ‘Alert Me’ which is interesting. Looks like they’re expecting new stock eventually online.

    Also, the 8th Doctor set, 10th Doctor set and (still) the 9th Doctor set are now all on sale. Which makes me slightly regret getting the 8th Doctor set a month or so ago…. (Eh, I guess I would’ve had to pay postage to order it separately so doesn’t matter too much, I guess.)

    I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Does anyone know when, if at all, there will be an announcement for upcoming action figure releases? Either B&M or Character Online.

    Got mine ordered, should be delivered in about 3 days. I’m in the U.S. and so is the shop I order from. Glad to add Mr. Bradley’s version of the first Doctor to my collection. And next month, the 14 the Doctor box set arrives from C.O. Ahhh. Like old times, getting new Who collectibles. Nice.
