Fans have been crying out for Lego Doctor Who to become a reality. The closest we have had so far is the Character Building construction sets, but there’s been little update on the real deal. However, good news could be on way.

The official Lego Cuusoo site is now allowing submissions for Doctor Who. Their recently updated page [via] explains the previous issues preventing such sets ever becoming a reality:

If such a conflict goes away, we’ll then be able to accept projects based on a particular brand or license.

But now it crucially adds:

We now welcome projects based on the following licenses that used to have conflicts:

  • Doctor Who – February 2014

While this doesn’t mean Lego Doctor Who sets are a dead cert, it’s definitely opened up the possibility.
