Doctor Who The Other (War) Doctor 5″ Figure

Available to order from

The ‘Other Doctor’ is the Doctor’s dark chapter, an _hitherto unknown incarnation whose existence he has spent centuries repressing, a secret he wants no one to know of.

He is a relic of the past, part of the great Time War, when he spent centuries fighting alongside his fellow Time Lords against the Daleks and made the final decision to end it with a desperate act that cost that incarnation the right to use the name “Doctor”.

This haunted and battle-worn Other Doctor is finally forgiven after helping find a new solution to end the war, giving the Eleventh Doctor a new purpose as he heads into further adventures.

    Back again!?! lol


    February 12th, 2015 - 7:24am

    Oh, this is that ‘other’ Forbidden Planet, not the Forbidden Planet with all the shops found in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Coventry, Croydon, Liverpool, Newcastle and Southhampton which is what I thought [why the hell is there two companies called ‘Forbidden Planet’ anyways ?, does anyone know why ? . . . . damn confusing !!].

    If this was the Forbidden Planet I go to up London, I’d happily buy it now, cos I never got it during it’s original release.

    The Who Shop in East Ham have this, but I don’t think some of us want to pay £49.99 for it, and no offense to the owners of the shop which I’ve been going too since the 90’s growing up when they used to have the shop opposite East Ham train station, but a lot of the really cool items they sell are a bit expensive.

    But if Forbidden Planet in London had this again for £14.99, I’d happily buy it now cheaper.

      the company split due to difficulties between the owners and are now completely separate, but yes its a bit confusing for the man in the street so to speak

      For some reason only has carried the exclusives for a while now

      It seems odd how ‘international’ is within our country, but of course, Forbidden Planet originated in America (probably), so it’s international to thenn.

    Booboo, how much is this now? Is it still over 30 quid?

    • booboo

      February 11th, 2015 - 9:03pm

      no £14.99 at the momnet

      You see that thing at the top? The orange underlined writing? That’s called a link. If you click on it, you will travel far away to the Forbidden Planet International site.

    Very tempted to get this… Even though I don’t collect the figures. Is it worth £15, for someone who just might keep it on his desk?

    • booboo

      February 11th, 2015 - 7:04pm

      one of the best figures ever

    • Sam Richard Bentley

      February 11th, 2015 - 7:12pm

      I think I’m going to pass, actually. Thinking of investing in some Funko Pop Vinyls before the Who ones come out later this year. I only have about £60 in my account at the moment.

  • whotoys

    February 11th, 2015 - 4:52pm

    I got this when it came out last year I saw loads of them in Glasgow back in October I thought about picking another one up but I realised I had one already so I don’t need another one

    I snapped that beauty up…good timing as I was also ordering one of the new motion Daleks and a couple of Wave 4A figures…the postage doesn’t seem so bad when its for multiple items 🙂

  • the real doctor

    February 11th, 2015 - 4:38pm

    id only buy this set if it was a two figure pack.
    the war doctor and the 8th doctor(dark eyes)
    or if it came with a eccelston head rather than mcgann

    I really wanted this figure but the price is sky high I just wish the people would stop buying loads of items like this so they can sell them for loads & so stock runs out very quick, Im going to try & make a deal with someone on this site I know for vintage toys swap something very collectable for one of these.

      I know what you mean I hate when people buy 2 1 to use and 1 to have on display and leave others with none luckily I’ve got this and the time of the doctor and impossible set but others miss out

    i got it in FP Cardiff yesterday! last one in shop

    • DS

      November 14th, 2014 - 2:50am

      Still no proper Night of the Doctor Eighth Doctor figure 🙁

    • DS

      November 26th, 2014 - 7:50pm

      We need a night of the doctor 8th Doctor figure. But I take your point the current head sculpt lends itself more to a dark eyes figure 🙂

  • Hello rusty

    October 11th, 2014 - 7:09pm

    Got it today from forbidden planet Glasgow . If you are planning to buy it there word of warning I had to go to the desk as there were none out they gave me it there but they are out now

    • JDPManjoume

      February 11th, 2015 - 4:06pm

      That’s funny…I was there not less than half an hour ago and they had a few sitting behind the Time of the Doctor sets.

  • Aaron Courtney

    October 11th, 2014 - 6:04pm

    It’s a shame they don’t do it more in the UK in stores like: ARGOS OR TOYS R US

    • MrHaloWho

      December 11th, 2014 - 7:08am

      Haha. Toys ‘R’ Us getting more 5″ Doctor Who figures? That’s funny.

    Its a good thing it was back in stock but why can’t they put other figures back in stock

    October 5th, 2014 - 4:54pm

    Ordered one on Thursday from FPI but haven’t had any order conformation yet… Should I be worried?

      October 5th, 2014 - 5:02pm

      They are closed on sundays i think.

    • mike25

      October 6th, 2014 - 4:41pm

      They have limited stock at Worlds Apart in Liverpool at £14.99. Just bought two and there are several left. No on line buying so first come first served.Good luck.

  • John Smith

    This is a great figure. But, I’m confused as to why they made an ‘updated’ McGann head for a costume that he is never seen wearing on air. Instead they should have made a seperate McGann figure, or, maybe this was a test run like they did with releasing the Peter Davison ‘regeneration’ figure before the Tom Baker Season 18 one was.

    • Trenzalore

      October 5th, 2014 - 12:09pm

      It’s because when they made it they hadn’t actually seen the story so after seeing it instead of removing it they decided to leave it in as a nice little extra.

    • Balakin

      October 5th, 2014 - 12:11pm

      my real problem is that the updated McGann head doesn’t fit on the 11 Doctors set figure.

    • DS

      November 26th, 2014 - 7:53pm

      Yes, I was disappointed to find the head didn’t fit the original 8th Doctor figure properly. However, the head sculpt lends itself more to a dark eyes figure anyway. A devoted Night of the Doctor figure would require a decent head sculpt reflective of Paul Mcganns television portrayal

    • Antonio Zambonini

      October 3rd, 2014 - 1:03pm

  • George

    October 3rd, 2014 - 12:55am

    So are they properly making these again, or is this a one off thing? I wonder how long they’ll continue to produce it before it’s gone for good?

  • VespiformsSting

    October 2nd, 2014 - 8:11pm

    I wonder if that rumour there were running out was a very crafty sales ploy……First time Ive bought two of anything cos I thought it was a rarity….

  • TheIbbotron

    October 2nd, 2014 - 7:57pm

    Had the page open for ages. Literally just about to order it and it goes out of stock… The War Doctor eludes me yet again

  • DalekAgent

    October 2nd, 2014 - 6:33am

    I’m so annoyed right now, I just received a email explaing that I’m not gonna be receiveing this because it’s out of stock but I ordered this when it was in stock at forbidden planet, so I suppose I must of ordered it late AGAIN!

    • The Silent Silent

      October 2nd, 2014 - 6:36am

      That’s unfair 🙁

    • DalekAgent

      October 2nd, 2014 - 7:20am

      I think now I’m gonna try and get The Impossible Set or The Time of the Doctor set or hopefully wait and get one or both for christmas because I haven’t been charged for this figure anyway

    • Danny

      October 2nd, 2014 - 6:06pm
