    In news we were all desperate to hear, Character Options has indeed acquired the license to the Original series of Doctor Who. The news comes courtesy of I will post the link below. Rejoice and start making your most wanted lists kids!

    Thats excellent news.

    I guess it's not a great surprise;

    The range of stuff they've done so far has been fantastically good that when figures are newly out, they simply cannot meet demand. They sell out in no time. It's usually months later before most figures are on the high street shelves with any regularity (although quite common now - for the 1st 6 months of his toy-life, I'd only ever seen The Ood in an actual shop once). So if you were Character Options or the BBC, you'd want to make the most of that.

    I can't wait to see what they come up with.

    Great news (albeit bad for my pocket).

    Or me. Sigh.


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.
