From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The long running British science fiction television series Doctor Who has since its beginnings in the 1960s generated many hundreds of products related to the show, from toys and games to picture cards and postage stamps. This article is not an exhaustive list of merchandise but attempts to present a flavour of the type of material that has been produced. This entry mainly concentrates on "official" spin-offs, that is to say, material sanctioned by the British Broadcasting Corporation, which produces the series.

Games

Board Games

  • Dodge The Daleks (1964)

The very first Doctor Who board game produced, this does not feature any Doctor, but his popular enemy, the Daleks. Gameplay involved attempting to avoid the Daleks while traveling around the gameboard; if a player encountered a Dalek, he or she would be out of the game.

  • The Dalek Oracle (1965)

This was the second game to be released during the "Dalekmania" craze, once again not featuring the Doctor. It was a question-and-answer type game, featuring a Dalek model.

  • Dalek Shooting Game (1965)

Another game from the Dalekmania craze, involving yourself using a small plastic gun (with plastic pellets) to shoot Daleks and be the first to arrive home on the game board.

  • Daleks: The Great Escape (1965)

The last game from the decade, a pinball-type machine in which you had to move a tiny Dalek around a set course, avoiding obstacles as you go. According to Howe's Transcendental Toybox, this game was terrifically hard.

  • Doctor Who (1975)

This board game was the fifth to be released, and featured Tom Baker as The Doctor. It was produced by Denys Fisher. Two versions were released, the first featuring a full colour sticker of Tom Baker on the box, and the other featuring a picture of the TARDIS and the subtitle "The Planets of Monsters". Gameplay does not differ between the two versions.

  • War Of The Daleks (1975)

This game, produced by Denys Fisher, involved the player attempting to fight off a Dalek invasion. It was believed you could purchase extra plastic Daleks for the game separately, but the original RRP is not listed anywhere.

  • Doctor Who - The Game of Time and Space (1980)

This board game from Games Workshop came in a bookshelf style box that featured Tom Baker as the Doctor in front of several Daleks on the cover. The game involved two to six players moving around the board attempting to collect pieces of the Key to Time. Along the way the players face classic Doctor Who aliens and villains and collect various companions and items to help them.

  • Doctor Who - Battle for the Universe (1989)

Published by The Games Team, this game could be played by two to four players. One player would play the role of the Doctor while the others would play one of three villains, namely Davros, the Master or the Cyber Controller. Each player would also have a team of four assistants which they would collect (the Doctor having his companions while Davros would have four Daleks, for example) while moving around the board and challenging each other in hyperspace "battle zones", until confronting each other in a final battle for control of the universe.

  • Doctor Who - Chess Set (1996)

Originally available through a mail-order collection, buyers would receive one figure per fortnight, at £9.99 a figure [1] , to build up a full set of figures for the game. Buyers were given the board free of charge. An expansion set of figures were issued later at the same price.

Card Games

  • Doctor Who Collectible Card Game (1996)

Published by MMG, this collectible card game for 2 players involved each player building a deck of cards from their collection and playing that deck against each other. The object of the game was to remove the opponent's six Time cards before they removed yours. This would be accomplished by attacking the other player using cards representing the various Doctors, Assistants and monsters that had appeared in the original 26 series of Doctor Who.

Role-playing Games

Three "regenerations" of BBC approved role-playing games have been released set in the Doctor Who universe:

  • The Doctor Who Role Playing Game (1985)

Published by FASA, The Doctor Who Role Playing Game allowed players to assume similar roles to the Doctor and his companions or as agents of the Celestial Intervention Agency. It had a picture of the Fourth Doctor and Leela on the box and its game system was based on the Star Trek RPG also published by FASA. The main set of three rulebooks was followed by several separately published adventures and sourcebooks for the game. A range of 25 mm white metal miniatures were produced to coincide with the game, these were designed and released by Citadel Miniatures in the UK. They were also released and distributed by RAFM in the USA and Canada. The game was re-released in late 1986, with all references to the Sixth Doctor removed, due to copyright issues.

  • Time Lord (1991)

Time Lord was written by Ian Marsh and Peter Darvill-Evans and published in paperback novel format by Virgin Publishing. This game is totally unrelated to the previously released Doctor Who RPG by FASA. It has different, simpler, mechanics and is considered faithful to the original television show. However, it was marketed with other Doctor Who books and not other role-playing games. In addition, Virgin was unknown in the gaming market. As a result, it did not sell well and aside from a few articles in Doctor Who Magazine, no supplements were published. Since 1996, it has been made available for free on the Internet by the authors (see below).

  • Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space - The Role Playing Game (2009)

Cubicle 7 Entertainment released a new RPG, Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, in December 2009.[2] It incorporates a brand new game system designed to appeal to both traditional gamers and a whole new generation of players.[3] In the coming months an official website is to be launched specifically for this game.


An unofficial fan forum dedicated to all three "regenerations" of the Doctor Who role-playing game can be found on the site listed below (see below).

Miniature Wargames

  • Doctor Who: Invasion Earth (1999)

"Doctor Who: Invasion Earth" was a miniature wargame designed by Daniel Faulconbridge and released by Harlequin Miniatures. The game allowed players to create or re-enact scenarios involving characters from the "Doctor Who" universe. The rule book came with an initial scenario of UNIT pitted against the Daleks in an invasion of Earth. Additional scenarios were produced, as well as an extensive range of 28 mm pewter miniatures for the game which covered the first eight Doctors, the Peter Cushing movie Doctor and all of the television companions (except for Katarina) in the original series and the 1996 television movie. In addition a wide variety of monsters, foes and guest characters from a number of the original television stories were produced. Harlequin later became Icons Miniatures, and are currently known as Black Tree Design. Scenarios, miniature statistics and information about the game and miniatures can be found on the site listed below (see below).

  • Doctor Who Micro-Universe (2007)

"Doctor Who Micro Universe" is a very simple collectible miniatures game that plays like Top Trumps with a die. Each figure has a number of characteristics with a numerical value. Choose a characteristic, roll the spinner (a die replacement shaped like the TARDIS console) and add the result to the characteristic's value. Your opponent rolls and adds the same characteristic from his figure and the highest wins that combat. No movement rules included despite this being a miniatures game. They were sold in semi random starters of 7 figures and boosters of 3 figures, plus a TARDIS-shaped carrying case was also released. 26 in the main set and 6 special packs that contain 1 ship (not to scale with the rest of the figures) and one special figure not available in the starters or boosters. Currently the Character Options website sells only the 6 special packs that contain a ship which can be found at the link below (see below).

Gamebooks

  • Make your own adventure with Doctor Who (British title) or Find Your Fate - Doctor Who (United States title) (1986)

These were a series of six gamebooks featuring the Sixth Doctor, released during the 1985-86 hiatus. The books were published by Severn House in the United Kingdom and by Ballantine in the United States; at least three were also published by the ABC in Australia, using the British titles. The stories also feature many familiar old companions and enemies including K-9, Peri, Turlough, the Rani and Omega. With the exception of Michael Holt, all the books in the series were written by scriptwriters for the television series, and at least one book, Mission to Venus, was a reworking of unused scripts, in this case Emms' unmade Second Doctor serial The Imps.[4] Despite this, some of the books broke from the continuity of the series, particularly Crisis in Space which features Vislor Turlough, even though he did not travel with the Sixth Doctor.

The six books were:

1 This is K-9 Mark III who was introduced in the spin-off K-9 and Company and later appeared in "School Reunion", as opposed to K-9s Mark I and II who travelled with the Fourth Doctor.
  • FASA Gamebooks

FASA also published two books similar in format to the "Make Your Own Adventure" books listed above, the first ('The Vortex Crystal by William H. Keith, Jr.) featuring the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan, and the second (The Rebel's Gamble also by William Keith, ISBN 0-931787-68-8), set during the American Civil War) featuring the Sixth Doctor, Peri and also Harry Sullivan, even though Sullivan was not a companion during the Sixth Doctor's era, although there is a brief reference to Sullivan having rejoined the Doctor.

Pinball

In 1992, Midway (under the Bally label) released a Doctor Who pinball game, designed by Bill Pfutzenreuter (also known as "Pfutz") and Barry Oursler (designer of the 1986 classic Pin*Bot). The theme of the game was "Time Streams", and featured a rearrangement of the Doctor Who theme tune by Jon Hey. Sylvester McCoy provided voice work for the game. The machine features a Dalek on top of the scoreboard. This Dalek was designed to move along with the game; however, the electronics were not always attached. Approximately 100 of these have a moving Dalek (unless it was updated by the owner).

Computer games

  • Doctor Who: The First Adventure (1983) and Doctor Who and the Warlord (1985)

Two computer games for the BBC Micro, featuring the Fifth And Sixth Doctors retrospectively; both games are now very hard to obtain.

  • The Key to Time (1984)

A text adventure game published by Lumpsoft for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64.[5]

  • Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror (1985)

A computer game published by Micro Power for the Amstrad CPC 464, ZX Spectrum, C64 and BBC Micro. This game featured the Sixth Doctor and a feline robot called Splinx. There was a sequel simply called Doctor Who 2[citation needed].

A computer game published by Admiral Software, it allowed the player to play either the Second, Fourth or Seventh Doctors, with the option of a second player taking the role of Ace or Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. The object of the game was to navigate through several environments, ranging from sewers to devastated cities and defeat the Daleks and their assorted minions.

Published by BBC Multimedia, this was a CD-ROM based computer game in which the player took the role of the Graak, a creature of mental force created by the Fourth Doctor. The Master has imprisoned all seven of the Doctor's incarnations in a dimension known as the Determinant and the player must undergo a series of quests and puzzles to free each of them. The game featured extensive new clips of Anthony Ainley as the Master (playing the role for the final time) and the voices of all the surviving actors to play the Doctor as well as that of Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

  • Top Trumps: Doctor Who (2008)

Based on the popular Doctor Who Top Trumps game. Playable characters include the Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones and Captain Jack Harkness. Released on Playstation 2, Nintendo DS, PC, Mobile Phone and later the Nintendo Wii.

Note : BBC has announced that a doctor who line of video games is going to be released, with the first on Wii and nintendo DS in october

Picture cards

There have been several series of picture cards devoted to Doctor Who over the years. These include a set of 36 cards given away in 1967 with Walls 'Sky Ray' ice lollys. The cards featured a somewhat long-haired doctor based on Patrick Troughton joining forces with the 'Sky Ray Space Raiders' to battle the Daleks. The cards were collected in an album, Dr Who's Space Adventure Book, which also included games and other features [1]. The Tom Baker era saw a collection of 12 cards issued with Typhoo Tea entitled The Amazing World of Dr. Who. These featured photographs of various monsters from the series, and could be stuck onto to a 'wallchart' poster that could be purchased separately.

Action figures

1970's figures

Denys Fisher Mego released a selection of 9" figures in the mid-1970s, including the Fourth Doctor, Leela, K-9 (released in 1978 after the first six), the Giant Robot, a Cyberman, a Dalek, and a TARDIS. The Dalek and K-9 have friction drives to allow for movement. The TARDIS has a self-propelled spinning top. The Doctor could be inserted into the TARDIS and the "light" on top was spun. If the red button was hit while the top was spinning, the Doctor "disappeared". If the green button was hit, the Doctor re-appeared.

These toys are all extremely rare and difficult to find, especially in near mint or mint condition. The Tom Baker figure is the most common and can be found in an English or Italian box. A mint (or near mint) Baker figure with the box is worth between $200–500, depending on quality of the figure and the box. The Tom Baker figure with the Italian box is more common (and may sell for as little as $150–250). The other figures, excluding the TARDIS, are worth $500–1200 if they are in near mint quality and have their original box, even if the box is damaged. A Denys Fisher Dalek with box recently (May 2006) sold for over $1150 on eBay. The TARDIS is usually a bit cheaper at $200–350 (provided it has no damage or any repairs are not noticeable and the box is included).

Of course, this is relative and eBay auctions can vary considerably. While a mint Leela may sell for $500–600, one without a box may only sell for $150–200. That said, some items are so rare that even a damaged item, or one with missing pieces, is worth a fair amount. For example, in May 2006, a Leela doll without her loin cloth (and correspondingly, without the attached pouches and knife) but with her original, but highly damaged box, sold for over $350. It really depends on competition, timing and if serious bidding is occurring. Nonetheless, considering these toys sold in the UK for under GBP £10 in the 1970s, their value has gone up nearly 10- to 100-fold and will most likely continue to rise due to the popularity of the new Doctor Who series.

Some are stress cracks due to time and cannot be avoided, but more serious cracks or discolouration will decrease the value considerably. The more damaged the item is, obviously, the less it is worth. These are very simple toys, as none require batteries, have any flashing lights or speak, but they have become quite collectible.

The rarity of the boxes (or high quality boxes) has led to people selling box reproductions. These reproduced boxes can be an alternative as they are less expensive than finding a figure with the original box, although true collectors may not appreciate them. Be sure to ask if the box is original or a reproduction.

Along those lines, some of these toys can be repaired. The TARDIS "light" and doors easily broke, but repairs by those with ingenuity or toy-repair skills can be done. Simply re-glueing the light or the doors rarely works for this toy, so more advanced repairs are needed. Flaking damage on the Cyberman suit can be repaired using a high quality silver paint for fabric. Dust on many figures can be removed by air-blown sprays or delicate washing. Leela's hair can be repaired by combing, conditioning and steam-cleaning. Delicate repainting can also be done on some figures. The key is to do just enough repairs, without ruining the essence of the original. Any repair work should be noted in ads (often a seller will simply sell the damaged item and leave repairs to the buyer). If unsure, ask the seller.

The Denys Fisher K-9 or Dalek can be confused with the talking Palitoy K-9 or Dalek toys. The Palitoy talking toys were released around the same time and are also quite collectable. Finding a good quality talking K-9 or Dalek, that speak at a "normal" speed and have their original boxes, can cost anywhere from $200–500. Even without the box, the toy could be worth $100–150 if in good speaking condition. If the toys do not speak, their value drops considerably (not more than $50–100 for a non-speaking Dalek). A working Palitoy K-9 is more rare and may be more costly. Both toys speak via a small vinyl record that is inside or near the battery compartment. The K-9 record is inside the battery compartment and the record can be flipped over, giving K-9 more phrases. The Dalek record is buried within the toy and cannot be removed. The Palitoy K-9 is considerably larger than the Denys Fisher line, so the two cannot be confused. The Palitoy Dalek is considerably different from the Denys Fisher Dalek, although it is similar in size. The Palitoy Dalek came in red with black Dalek "spots" or "bumps" and in silver-grey with blue "bumps". The silver/blue Dalek is a bit more rare. Both Palitoy Daleks had black extremities, with a red end on the eye and red suction cup. The Denys Fisher Dalek is also silver/blue, but has a red head and a blue eye piece (with silver gun and suction cup). Palitoy toys also tended to rust and crack.

Product Enterprise

Product Enterprise has created new lines of talking Cybermen (with guns and a cybermat) and talking Daleks (with flashing lights). Product Enterprise rotates its toy lines such that some will discontinue — for example, the Cybermen figures stopped production in 2002. There were two Cyberman figures, the all silver/gray Cyber-Warrior and the Cyber Leader, which was nearly identical, but had black ear-pieces. Note: Product Enterprises has just re-issued the Cyberman figures — one in black and one in a "duller" silver (both have more of a spray-paint effect). These are out for a limited time. The all Black Cyberman was featured in the 1985 Doctor Who episode "Attack of the Cyberman".

The Dalek figures are approximately the same size as the Palitoy talking figures from the 1970s. However, these new Daleks use micro-chip technology to speak. If their speaking mechanisms break, most likely the circuit has been destroyed. Simply re-aligning the figure, as could at times be done with the Palitoy figures, will obviously not work here. While this is one minor limitation of the technology, these newer toys are far more sturdy and less likely to break. The Product Enterprise Daleks come in just about every colour that was ever seen in the original Classic Doctor Who Series and old Doctor Who movies (from the 1960s), including the red/black and silver/blue of the Palitoy Dalek series, as well as white/gold for the Imperial Dalek, black/gold, gold/black, red/silver, silver/black, etc.

The New Doctor Who Series features Daleks in all bronze or black. To date, Product Enterprise has not made any action figures representative of the New Series. All New Series toys are manufactured by Character Options (see below). Character Options has created a wide array of figures, including all bronze or black Daleks (in several sizes), that can speak and are remote-controlled. The Character Option line is brand new, and thus generally available at retail price. The Product Enterprise lines prices vary. As some of the Product Enterprises Cybermen figures are discontinued, these are usually a bit higher than retail value. Top price should be $70–100. Most Product Enterprise Dalek figures sell for $50; however, the rare white and gold Imperial Dalek, of which only 3000 or so were made, may fetch values close to $150–200. Recently, Product Enterprise made a talking, remote-controlled Davros, which wonderfully goes along with their Daleks. This figure is new and worth ~$100.

Product Enterprise also has released a 9" talking Fourth Doctor and K9 (in Tardis-style box), and in 2006 will release a 12" Talking Doctor and Classic Cyberman.

DAPOL

For the series 25th anniversary in 1988 the BBC commissioned model train manufacturers Dapol to release the first line of Doctor Who action figures since the Denys Fisher toys of 1976. The first wave of the line was composed of current Doctor Sylvester McCoy, already departed companion Melanie Bush (in a pink top), the Doctor’s iconic ship the TARDIS, the Fourth Doctor’s robotic pet dog K9 and a Tetrap monster from Time and the Rani. The first wave had numerous errors such as the TARDIS console featuring the wrong amount of sides and a green painted K9 as opposed to the correct metallic grey, apparently because the photo given by the BBC to Dapol gave the impression K9 was green as it allegedly reflected the grass. Half a year later a second wave of the first series was released featuring an Earthshock Cyberman, Dalek variants and the Fourth Doctor, surprisingly without his trademark long scarf and hat.

The next batch of figures released in 1989 featured costume variants for the Doctor and Melanie, current companion Ace, an Ice Warrior story and a two-armed Davros. At first the way to readdress this mistake was simply to snap the offending hand off but later models took more care to readdress the balance. The final editions of this wave were three more Dalek colour variants.

In 1990 the Dapol factory suffered serious fire damage and no new Doctor Who figures were produced until 1998. Dapol's third series of action figures mainly focused on the early 1970s era of the programme, including two types of Silurian, a Sea Devil, the Master as portrayed by Roger Delgado and the Doctor as portrayed by Jon Pertwee. The series also featured a Dalek based on the Peter Cushing film series and a gold Dalek from Day of the Daleks, which was only available in the Third Doctor box set. In 1999 Dapol released six more Daleks, the Melkur and two types of Sontaran. The next year Dapol discontinued the figure range and made 4-inch statues of the Second Doctor and a cyberman from The Moonbase. Though the company planned to continue this range with the First Doctor and a Yeti the BBC opted not to renew Dapol's licence.

The company also hosted the Doctor Who Experience exhibition, which showed props and costumes from the original series and ran until 2003. Dapol also produced gift sets containing common figures, typically with one rarity included, and dozens of special edition Daleks, usually to coincide with the latest theme at the exhibition.

Corgi

In 2003 die-cast model makers Corgi released a model Bessie with The Three Doctors DVD and in early 2004, still for the 40th anniversary, released a limited edition (5,000) TARDIS set featuring an Earthshock Cyberman, Davros, The Fourth Doctor in Bessie, K9 and a Light Gold Dalek. Essentially the same set was re-released months later in a commemorative film can, the differences the inclusion of a Fourth Doctor figure, a figure of the Fourth Doctor peering through the TARDIS and an early silver/blue Dalek. Corgi then released eight different types of Dalek and Davros in sets of three with runs of 7,000, and re-released every figure from the box sets in packs of two. Corgi’s final release was a limited edition (2,000) UNIT set featuring a jeep, helicopter and Supreme Dalek.

Character Options

Already having a liscense for the New Series of Doctor Who, prior to 2008 and 2009, Character Options began making Classic Series figures (see New Series merchandise for more about Character Options)

Action figures

Fourth Doctor action figure, with sonic screwdriver and swappable head

In 2005 Character Options was granted the master toy licence to produce merchandise related to the revived series. After the success of the Dalek Battle Packs (two remote controlled Daleks with either a Ninth Doctor or Rose Tyler action figure) at the end of 2005, increasingly larger waves of action figures were released in two scales - 5" and 12" - during 2006 and 2007. Representing the first three televised seasons of the revived series, the line has included variants of the Tenth Doctor and Rose, and an extensive representation of the enemies, companions and other significant characters encountered since 2005. Retailers and fans were united in praise for the productions and the action figure range won the Toy Retailers Association's Boys Toy of the Year Award in 2006. In July 2008, Character Options expanded the range with the first wave of action figures based on the Classic Series. Beginning with the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth incarnations of the Doctor, three variants of Dalek, and six enemies predominantly from the Fourth Doctor era, the company stated their intention to eventually release figures of all eight incarnations of the Doctor seen in the Classic Series, along with a cross-section of his enemies.[citation needed]

The Sarah Jane Adventures

Character Options released merchandise related to the Doctor Who spin-off, "The Sarah Jane Adventures", beginning in November 2007. Launching with a Sarah Jane Smith action figure and Star Poet set, the range included a Sonic Lipstick & Wrist Scanner, Alien Communicator. Three variants of Sarah-Jane Smith followed in double packs with The Graske, Kudlak and a Slitheen child. The Sarah Jane Adventures figure line has been struck off due to lack of customer interest.[citation needed]
