John Hurt in Your Pocket
John Hurt’s Doctor has been immortalised as an action figure. Referred to as “The Other Doctor” here, the set comes with a Sonic Screwdriver, The Moment accessory and an Eighth Doctor alternate head.
Forbidden Planet have announced the 5″ figure will be available from 28 February 2014.
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 standard one is priced £14.99
