Doctor Who Caves of the Androzani figure Set

Doctor Who – Caves of the Androzani Set

Please note although just announced in the UK this item has been for sale at retail level in Australia for some time.

The Fifth Doctor and Peri arrive on Androzani Minor, the source of a life-prolonging drug called spectrox. Production of the drug is controlled by Sharaz Jek, a facially deformed madman in self imposed exile, who blames Morgus, a powerful industrialist on Androzani Major, for all his misfortunes. Jek is fighting Morgus’ troops on a daily basis using his android army.

Jek’s android weapons are supplied by gun-runners employed by Morgus, who then receives payment in refined spectrox. But, Jek becomes infatuated with Peri and saves her and the Doctor from execution by Morgus’ troops only to hold them prisoner himself. They escape Jek but contract spectrox toxaemia, a fatal condition with only one antidote – milk from a giant queen bat.

In a climactic battle, Morgus, Jek and all the soldiers are killed. The Doctor now dying, carries Peri back to the TARDIS, where he gives her the antidote. She recovers, but the Doctor has to regenerate to save his own life.

    Hi all – I just got an unopened one of these from eBay and my peri figure came with two left hands! Did anyone else see this or know anything about this ?

    • Rob

      September 24th, 2019 - 12:00pm

      In fact on looking at it further it seems like they’ve put two left arms on the figure!

  • finn townley

    October 7th, 2014 - 6:59pm

    maybe they could use the body of jek and tweak it so we can have the controller from day of the daleks

      i dont have this set yet anyway


    December 17th, 2011 - 2:15pm

    this isn’t to do with the set, but in the actual show, did peri die or leave to marry a warlord?

    • callumeales

      December 17th, 2011 - 2:19pm



      December 17th, 2011 - 2:25pm

      oh, cos on youtube there was a clip of her having her brain removed and replaced, what does that mean? in my doctor who companion compendum book it says, she died helping the doctor, as did adric and katarina.

    • callumeales

      December 17th, 2011 - 2:57pm

      the doctor gave peri the cure for some diease so he had to regenrate
      im not sure if she died in the twin dilemia (the first story with the 6th doctor) beacuse i doont have the one but the only companion actuaaly to die is adric in earthshock

    • dalekdrone

      December 17th, 2011 - 3:04pm

      There talking about the episode where Peri dies in The Trial of a Timelord

    • Nicholas

      December 17th, 2011 - 3:07pm

      the Valeyard messed with the matrix, making it look like she died, but she is alive and is Ycrano’s (Brian Blessed) Queen.

    • callumeales

      December 17th, 2011 - 3:08pm

      which ep in trail of timelord

    • Nicholas

      December 17th, 2011 - 3:10pm

      It is revealed that she is alive in The Ultimate Foe


      December 17th, 2011 - 5:56pm

      callumeales, katarina died, she opened some air lock and she fell out, i think!

    • lett

      December 19th, 2011 - 10:39am

      the episode in trail of a time lord is wind warp

      sorry type error “mindwarp”

  • Scott

    December 4th, 2011 - 9:24pm

    on the top image peri has her sleeves rolled down and the other one below the sleeves seem to be up, booboo do you know why that is or is it just the perspective?

    • booboo

      December 4th, 2011 - 9:28pm

      hadn’t noticed that but the top images is from an actual set purchased in Australia and the bottom image is from underground toys so may be a test set or something

    • Scott

      December 4th, 2011 - 10:53pm

      Just watched it and the top one is more correct to the on-screen costume

    • Scott

      December 4th, 2011 - 11:09pm

      can i just say, booboo, how helpful you are, you seem to know everything 🙂 thankyou

  • Androzani12

    December 3rd, 2011 - 2:11pm

    Just Found this on Nicola Bryant Twitter page!!
    ”Third doll is exciting but I can’t tell you what it is. 3 Peri figures! Even I’m excited! :)” Yay attak version is coming!!

    • booboo

      December 3rd, 2011 - 2:30pm

      probably pink perry and i would love the attack controller


    November 4th, 2011 - 6:18pm

    if they make a classic sarah jane, then i will buy the 4th and third doctor and some clasic monsters

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      November 9th, 2011 - 1:21pm

      I HOPE they make a, a…… Oh I give up, I want it !! i want the Vanir from Terminus !! i loved that story and liked it’s design and atmosphere, I want those Vanir in armour suits!! :crazy: ❗

    • 11matt

      November 13th, 2011 - 1:36pm

      yeah a sarah jane classic one would bd good and with k9

    • McGann is the Doctor

      November 15th, 2011 - 11:41am

      I think she wd be better with 4th Doctor or Jon Pertwee figure ❓

  • McGann is The Doctor.

    November 1st, 2011 - 11:56pm

    The figure of Peri is a great figure, but I don’t think the likeness is really convincing enough, ughh, could have done better. Should have given the figure a younger Peri face, this is her more mature face we see. :/

    But as far as the 5″ figures go, it’s about as good as the Peri from Vengeance on Varos so it IS well worth getting. 🙂

    • Scott

      November 26th, 2011 - 8:40pm

      they have made her look like Fatima whitbread with long hair


    November 1st, 2011 - 6:44pm

    The Peri figure looks weird; it doesn’t look like her at all

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      November 1st, 2011 - 11:58pm

      Yeah, if you look at the pictures of her from Caves, and then back at the figure, the actual PERI from this episode is much younger face than her action figure representation seems.

      It should have gone with some adjustment to the face, make her represent this younger Peri who was just new to Dr Who at the time. ❗

    I don’t reckon they have her nose right. I think her nose is to big for her mouth.

    • Torchwood-13

      November 1st, 2011 - 8:52am

      What an insult! lol

    • DALEK

      November 1st, 2011 - 12:45pm

      It’s just a figure. There not going to get the likeness spot on.

    • D0ct0r11

      November 2nd, 2011 - 3:34pm

      They should, though. The Series 6 Doctor figures are a perfect realisation of Matt Smith, and all other figures should be to the same standard. This figure doesn’t even have a top lip.

    • DALEK

      November 2nd, 2011 - 4:34pm

      Not all of them are going to look like the Actors! I’m just glad that they’ve made a figure of them. I would rather have the figure then not have one at all, even if it does not look exactly like the actor!

  • BoltOf3

    October 31st, 2011 - 6:20pm

    There is an official announcement on Twitter now

  • David

    October 31st, 2011 - 6:12pm

    available on FPI (no pre-order) and pre-order on FP?

  • Jonathan

    October 30th, 2011 - 5:27pm

    I think we will end up with three different Peris as there is a supposed Attack of the Cybermen version

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      October 30th, 2011 - 6:36pm

      Yeah, I saw it on ebay. Hopefully they’ll make a set with the Cybercontroller. 😀

    • Mumble5557

      October 31st, 2011 - 8:24pm

      or shiny master as that was on ebay aswell

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      November 11th, 2011 - 10:24am

      Nah I doubt they would make a shiny Master, I’ve seen it but they wouldn’t release it with Peri, the Peri is from Attack of The Cybermen.

      I hope they make a Planet of Fire set, except one that has Peter Davison in his costume from Lanzarote. 😉

  • dalek eternal

    October 28th, 2011 - 9:55am

    id like to release a bernard cribbins figure

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      October 30th, 2011 - 6:40pm

      Ah, he was amazing. I was watching a DW tribute made in 2008, and it featured that beautiful moment between David Tennant’s Doctor and him, 😥
      where he asks “What about you Doctor all those friends of yours, who have you got ?” And the Doctor answerd:

      ” They’ve all got someone else. But that’s fine, I’m FINE.”
      and I began to wonder, how BC did his acting for that scene, because it jsut seemed so real to me, it didn’t occur to me that it was acting atall. 😯

    October 28th, 2011 - 8:51am

    I know I said this before but there should be a companion set for each doctor example:
    1. Susan
    2. Jamie
    3. Jo
    4. Romana II
    5. Tegan
    6. Mel
    7. Ace
    8. Grace
    9. Rose (possibly from different episode)
    10. Donna (End Of Time)
    11. Amy (WORS* without eye drive)
    River (end of AGMGTW*)
    Younger Sarah-Jane
    * Wedding Of River Song
    * A Good Man Goes To War

    • Jonathan

      October 28th, 2011 - 9:14am

      I hope next year more companions see the light of day like Tegan, Jo, Susan, Sarah Jane, Jamie and Romana but great companion sets all the same

    • grimreaperguy

      October 28th, 2011 - 9:22am

      The only thing is Jonathon is that CO are getting so many orders they have to deal with them first so we may not be seeing them for a while

    • gary

      October 29th, 2011 - 9:54pm

      For me, the classic companions I’d like to see are:

      1- Ian and Barbara
      2- Jamie and Victoria
      3- Jo and The Brigadier
      4- Sarah Jane and Harry
      5- Tegan and Turlough
      7- Ace

    doesn’t look good

  • McGann is The Doctor.

    October 26th, 2011 - 10:44pm

    Cool, Caves of Adrozahni is a well-loved story, for what it’s worth.

    Some ppl say they would be willing to buy more figures form this story, the Maagma Beast (eughh, 🙁 ) and the Androids/Drones/Droids that Sharaz Jek made.

    Just FYI, but all that really matters for nwo is that we HAVE these two characters. 😀


      October 29th, 2011 - 7:07pm


  • Tom97

    October 26th, 2011 - 11:42am

    I know it’s a bit off the point, but I wish they would bring back The Sarah Jane Adventures action figures. I mean, take the Trickster or Androvax for instance, I reckon they’d look great as action figures! I hope it is something that Character Options would consider doing 🙂

    • doctorwhofan27

      October 26th, 2011 - 11:46am

      luke, clyde, maria, rani, sky? They could release them with an attic and a new sarah jane.

    • Tom97

      October 26th, 2011 - 12:10pm

      Yes! An attic play set, that would be awesome! More so if it included an electronic Mr. Smith! And I thought that it was a good idea to release them in double packs, a hero action figure alongside a monster.

    • Jonathan

      October 26th, 2011 - 3:25pm

      Maybe like this:
      Sarah Jane Smith with Androvax
      the Brigadier with Bane
      Jo Jones with Shansheeth
      Luke with Kaagh
      Rani with Odd Bob
      Clyde with Red Robot

    • Androzani12

      October 26th, 2011 - 4:45pm

      Sorry But i just want to ask why you are talking about SJA Figures on The Caves Of Androzani Figure Set Comments Box ?

    • Tom97

      October 26th, 2011 - 8:19pm

      Sorry 😕 In hindsight, it was a little bit too off topic, but I didn’t know where else to share this. And, yeah! All of those ideas are great, just fingers crossed now that this is something that Character Options will follow up on eventually…

    • Anonymous

      October 26th, 2011 - 9:24pm

      They gave up the lisence and have no intention of going back, they won’t even release a Sarah Jane SMith figure even as a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen as they think it would be “disrespectful”.

    • Tom97

      October 26th, 2011 - 11:10pm

      If that’s the case, then I think it was a really big mistake for Character Options to have discontinued this action figure range. They were a great accompaniment to the show and, not trying to make light of a bad situation, but seeing as the series isn’t going to continue on the TV, then at least it would live on in some form. As they said, “the story goes on forever” 🙂

    • Last0fthetimel0rds

      October 27th, 2011 - 2:12pm

      They have released figures of the 1st,2nd and 3rd Doctors and they aren’t alive anymore…

    • booboo

      October 27th, 2011 - 2:22pm

      I think he means so soon, also they no longer have the Sarah Jane Adventures licence

    • Anonymous

      October 27th, 2011 - 5:09pm

      The reason it is considered disrespectful is that they are making money after the death of a well loved person. Remember these people don’t play with toys, they don’t think of it the way you do.

  • The Whofan101

    October 25th, 2011 - 8:30pm

    now that we can see the actual figures, I probably won’t buy

    • McGann is the Doctor

      October 26th, 2011 - 11:24am

      Why not ? These are two great additions to anyone 80’s-Who figure display !! ❗

      I will be getting Peri to go with the Ressurection-Dalek-set Fifth Doctor 😛

    • MadmanWithABox

      October 26th, 2011 - 4:24pm

      yeah i know what you mean, in the far away pics of them in the packaging we saw earlier i thought sharez jek looked really coo, but then when i saw an up close pic of him and his heads, i actually think he looks quite horrible.

    • Androzani12

      October 26th, 2011 - 4:43pm

      But MadmanWithABox Thats How He is ment to Look in ”The Caves Of Androzani” Its What My You Tube Channels Name was based around

    • MadmanWithABox

      October 28th, 2011 - 10:56pm

      i dont mean horrible in a good way, i mean i thought he looked a lot cooler from far away,but up close the figure and the head sculpts all look really bad, think ill save the money and get the enemies of the third doctor set

    • MadmanWithABox

      October 28th, 2011 - 10:58pm

      im not saying its not a good liking to the character from the episode, im merely saying i really hate the head sculpts and the general fgure.

  • AdamWho?

    October 25th, 2011 - 7:06pm

    hi this is totally off the subject but does any one know were i can get any of the tesco exclusive sets from,I can’t find them anywere and they’re very expensive on ebay.Many Thanks Adam

    • booboo

      October 25th, 2011 - 7:11pm

      they sold out long a go and like you say some go for quite a bit now on ebay

  • Jonathan

    October 25th, 2011 - 7:00pm

    I really want this looks good can’t wait but let’s hope next year we see more companions like:
    Jo Grant with Draconian
    Jamie with Yeti
    The Brigadier with Ogron
    Sarah Jane Smith with Eldred
