Character Options announces new Doctor Who lines planned for B&M Stores

New Malden, London 11th June 2019

Character Options is delighted to announce a new series of exclusive Doctor Who toys that will be available later this summer from local B&M stores (UK variety retailer). Full details of the product line-up (with images) will be revealed in the coming weeks but here’s a small taster of what will be available.
Fans of the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdrivers will be able to get their hands on a heritage set of three popular incarnations.. The new blister-pack series will include electronic versions, inspired by the 50th anniversary episode, of the Tenth, Eleventh and War Doctor’s sonics.

For action figure fans,Character Options presents a set of three unique Doctor & Dalek Twin Packs, inspired by the Doctor Who audio series from Big Finish. This includes a brand new take on the Eighth Doctor, plus the Dalek Interrogator Prime, as featured in Big Finish audio book story In the Garden of Death. The two additional Doctor and Daleks sets to be released from this range will feature the Seventh and War Doctors respectively.

This year there will be not one, but two new TARDIS & Doctor sets released, each with a completely new take on both the Doctor and the blue box, inspired by adventures spanning the 1970s and 1980s. 

To complete the summer line-up there are three brand new collector sets with a range of three figures in each, inspired by the Classic adventures of the Second, Fourth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors.
Al Dewar, Creative Director at Character Options commented: “We are delighted to announce this first taster of what’s to come from our B&M stores Doctor Who toy range.  To reveal the visuals of these brand new products, we plan to do a full unveiling live, which will take place ‘unboxing style’ on Character Options’ own Youtube channel in July; details of the time and date will be announced.”

      In that case it will be the actual big finish release, all b&ms I’d assume would be announced in the livestream.

    I’d like a re-release of the 7th Doctor era Imperial Dalek, it’s impossible to find without paying extra on ebay and I’d quite like a massive army of them!

    Do we have any date for the livestream announcement? Or will it just randomly be announced sometime after July 1st?

    I’m not sure about all classic sets , I would
    Prefer to have at least 1 modern. I enjoy the classic range and I’m glad we have some figures coming, but I think we should’ve had at least one classic figure set

    • booboo

      June 23rd, 2019 - 12:27pm

      They are just doing doctors we have not had before many stores have 9th 11th and 12th doctor sets on the shelf but only one classic 4th doctor set

      There’s a War Doctor set, which technically, is NuWho.

      There’s nothing about a Fourth Doctor TARDIS? It only says 1970s, could be another Third Doctor for all we know.

      There’s another 4th Doctor and a 5th doctor tardis with caves of androzani 5th Doctor

    • The 14th doctor!

      June 21st, 2019 - 9:15pm

      How do you know?

    • Wholords2

      That pic was a fan edit and is completely fake

      We don’t know what’s coming yet

    • booboo

      June 22nd, 2019 - 8:57am

      yes, although a caves of androzani set would make sense as the 5th Doctor muddied as never been released , only the 6th on a 5th body.

      Imagine if it had swappable heads in the set, many people would buy 2 as the 6th doctor is very hard to get

  • Bobby Davros

    With any luck this time the 4th Doctor pack will include at least one green voc robot and a multi number sticker sheet for the army builders amongst us. You can’t really do that with D84.

  • Sutekh06

    Do you think we will be getting 3 Doctors sets with two doctors appearing together in one (most likely 2nd, 6th, and sontaran from the two doctors) or 2 doctors sets and one monsters set with villains from multiple eras as in 2016 and 2017?

    • booboo

      June 20th, 2019 - 8:29am

      it could be anything at this stage

  • Marky

    June 19th, 2019 - 3:45pm

    Any ideas what figures the 2nd doctor will have in his set?

    • Bobby Davros

      June 19th, 2019 - 4:31pm

      People suspect that 2 will share a pack with 6 for a Two Doctors theme.

    • Marky

      June 20th, 2019 - 10:45am

      That sounds cool 2nd&6th doctor
      As it the two doctors jassene would be great with the sontaran warriors
