Character Options have today released information on a brand new Doctor Who action figure in 5 inch of The Other Doctor / War Doctor as played by John Hurt in The Name of The Doctor, The Night of The Doctor and The Day of The Doctor. The figure comes with Hurt’s sonic screwdriver, “The Moment” and an extra head so you can degenerate Hurt back into Paul McGann.
The figure synopsis goes like this:
- The ‘Other Doctor’ is the Doctor’s dark chapter, a 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.
The Other Doctor, as seen in the 50th anniversary episode: “The Day of the Doctor”.
Action Figure measures 5 inches tall.
The Other Doctor Action Figure.
The Other Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Accessory. The Moment Accessory.
The Eighth Doctor alternate head.
