The First Doctor had an unquenchable thirst to explore, and a knack of getting himself into trouble doing it. An exile from his homeworld, the Doctor wanders through space and time in his trusty TARDIS with his granddaughter Susan. Both a loving father-figure and a fierce opponent, he would often play deadly games with his foes. It was after preventing the Cybermen from absorbing the Earth's energy, and with his body "wearing a bit thin", that the First Doctor collapses to the TARDIS floor and begins his first regeneration.
Outfitted in flamboyant gentleman’s attire, including a cape and Astrakahn hat, the First Doctor comes with numerous accessories including his horn handle walking cane, monocle and pipe. With eight interchangeable hands, to enable numerous poses and a light-up display base with the Gallifreyan symbol for one, the First Doctor 1:6 Scale Commemorative Edition is the definitive collectable for fans of the Time Lord.
To develop the most accurately scaled collector’s figure, our artists studied countless reference photographs, to create a realistic and authentic character portrait of the First Doctor so memorabily portrayed by actor William Hartnell. The Doctor’s trademark costume was hand-tailored in exacting detail, together with his accessories.
Officially licensed and authorised by BBC Worldwide, the First Doctor 1:6 Scale Commemorative Edition is produced in a worldwide Limited Edition exclusively available from www.bigchiefstudios.co.uk and will not be sold via other retailers. Each figure is numbered and includes an accompanying certificate of authenticity.
Additional Commemorative Edition Items
We are pleased to announce that in addition to the figure and accompanying accessories, customers will also receive a special Commemorative Edition pack, which includes two exclusive signed photo prints. There are individual prints for each of the 1st Doctor’s companions: Susan Foreman as portrayed by Carole Ann Ford and Ian Chesterton as portrayed by William Russell. Each photo print features the hand-signed autograph of the respective actor. This marks the first time that we have been able to offer fans a dual signed edition.
