Merchandise - Character Options’ new 10” Thirteenth Doctor Figure


Character Options is delighted to unveil its brand new Doctor Who figure, the first 10” figure of the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker.

The new, highly detailed 10”/26cm fully articulated, collectible figure comes dressed in real fabric high-waisted culottes, rainbow striped dark blue shirt and coat.  The figure also comes with the Doctor’s essential Sonic Screwdriver accessory. 

Alasdair Dewar, Character Options’ Director of Product Development commented:  “The new 10 inch Adventure Figure is a fantastic addition to the range. Made even better by the use of 3D scan data. The likeness is absolutely fantastic and along with the scaled fabric clothing kids and collectors alike will enjoy this bigger sized figure to play without display ... and ... it’s by sheer chance perfectly in scale with our 2006 12 inch Doctor Who range”

Rikesh Desai, Licensing Director at BBC Studios, says; “As the UK Master Toy Licensee for Doctor Who, Character Options consistently produce great toys for the brand. The new Thirteenth Doctor figure is no exception; the attention to detail, real clothes and quality of the product make it a great collectible for fans of all ages.”

The new figure will be available from August, for more information go to www.character-online.co.uk 

UPDATE:  You can now pre-order the figure from The Who Shop.

"Patient Zero" Starring Matt Smith To Finally See the Light of Day...


Remember all the talk about "Patient Zero"?  The Screen Gems film starring Matt Smith, Stanley Tucci and Natalie Dormer was completed back in 2015 ... yet kept being dropped from the release schedule.  Well, it appears we will finally get to see it - in October 2018 as, according to a report on bloody-disgusting.com, "Patient Zero" will get a dvd and Blu-Ray release then.  It's also likely it will hit the VOD platforms (Netflix or Amazon Prime).  It's about time.

If you can't remember much about "Patient Zero" then the synopsis is below - and also check out the filming photos in our Gallery:
“An unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has turned the majority of humankind into highly intelligent, streamlined killers known as ‘The Infected.’ One victim, Morgan (Matt Smith), who is asymptomatic and can communicate with the infected, leads the last survivors on a hunt for Patient Zero and a cure.”
Being a bit of a fan of Zombie films, I honestly can't wait.  "Patient Zero" was written by Mike Le and directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky.

UNIT Revisitations - Cover and Details Released



Big Finish have released details of the next UNIT audio release - coming in November.  I'm sure I'm not alone in being seriously excited that the Wirrn are back.  Also - another tale from Roy Gill who wrote the very impressive "Invocation" in UNIT Encounters.
And it’s a wrap on the next series of tales for the UNIT team! After saving humanity from a new alien paradigm in Cyber-Reality, the UNIT Team face more intergalactic threats in their seventh series of adventures in UNIT – Revisitations. 
Coming out in November this year, a couple of familiar foes are returning and UNIT is humanity’s best and only defence against them. In UNIT – Revisitations, the team are still reeling after the consequences of UNIT – Cyber-Reality – but the threats just keep on coming! 
This next box set finds the UNIT team fighting an incursion of the Wirrn (first seen in the Fourth Doctor television story The Ark in Space) in a tale by Chris Chapman, there’s a morality drama by David K Barnes, and the return of Pik- Sen Lim as Chin Lee (originally in the Third Doctor story The Mind of Evil), now a Doctor herself in an adventure by Roy Gill. Will we also see a return of the fearful Keller Machine? 
7.1 and 7.2 Hosts of the Wirrn by Chris Chapman
7.3 Breach of Trust by David K Barnes
7.4 Open the Box by Roy Gill 
Jemma Redgrave returns as Kate Stewart, leader of UNIT, joined by Ingrid Oliver as Osgood, UNIT’s Scientific Advisor, James Joyce as Captain Josh Carter and Ramon Tikaram as Colonel Shindi. (For everyone missing Warren Brown as Sam Bishop, you can catch him in August’s box set, Lady Christina, opposite Michelle Ryan as Lady Christina de Souza).
