New Classic Doctor Who Figures

Info on two new classic Doctor Who figure sets - exclusive to Forbidden Planet:

The Fifth Doctor & the Master from Planet of FireHis youthful appearance belied his wisdom and experience, but this Doctor still found it frustrating that so many people questioned his judgement, especially his companions. While on an alien planet he and his companion Peri contracted a disease and the Doctor gave Peri the only cure, necessitating another regeneration…

The Fifth Doctor and Turlough are on the island of Lanzarote because the TARDIS has detected a mysterious signal being transmitted from an unknown, recently salvaged artefact. They meet a young American botany student named Peri Brown, whose stepfather has been replaced with a shape changing robot as part of a plot by the Master. He plans to bring the TARDIS to the planet Sarn, so he can use that world's revitalising Numismaton gas to restore his body, accidentally shrunken in an accident. The Master (Anthony Ainley) is apparently defeated when the stream of gas turns to a normal hot flame. The Doctor destroys the shape changing robot, Kamelion, at the robot's own bidding as it has become completely unstable. Turlough leaves to return home, while Peri leaves with the Doctor.
  • On sale now at Forbidden Planet stores only priced £24.99.

Regenerated Fifth Doctor from CastrovalvaFollowing the events at the Pharos Project which caused his regeneration, the Fifth Doctor escapes with his companions back to the TARDIS. Suffering from post-regeneration trauma, he only narrowly manages to save the ship from destruction as it plunges back through time to Event One, the hydrogen in-rush that preceded the creation of the universe.

The Doctor then seeks sanctuary, with companions Tegan and Nyssa, in the peaceful domain of Castrovalva, only to discover that it is an illusory, dimensionally paradoxical trap set for the him by the Master, unwillingly aided by Adric, whom he has kidnapped. The Doctor eventually wins the day by enlisting the help of the Castrovalvan people who, although also part of the Master's creation, are nevertheless able to exercise free will.
  • On sale now at Forbidden Planet only priced £14.99.

The Only Good Dalek
Station 7 is the most secret establishment in the whole of Earth-Space. Even our own people don’t know it exists. It’s beyond top secret. There’s no way the Daleks can ever find it.

Station 7 is where the Earth Forces send all the equipment captured in their unceasing war against the Daleks. It’s where Dalek technology is analysed and examined. It’s where the Doctor and Amy have just arrived. But somehow the Daleks have found out about Station 7 – and there’s something there that they want back.

With the Doctor increasingly worried about the direction the Station’s research is taking, the commander of Station 7 knows he has only one possible, desperate, defence. Because the last terrible secret of Station 7 is that they don’t only store captured Dalek technology. It’s also a prison. And the only thing that might stop a Dalek is another Dalek…
