BBC Teases New Thirteenth Doctor-Starring Doctor Who Merchandise
Though the new season of Doctor Who, featuring Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, won’t make its BBC debut until this fall, fans of the iconic sci-fi series who find themselves at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con will get an early glimpse behind the scenes of the upcoming season. The series’ new cast and crew will gather for their first-ever panel discussion—but that’s not the only Time Lord news coming out of San Diego. The BBC will also be showing off some of the brand-new Doctor Who merchandise that will accompany the new season, including several pint-sized renditions of the first-ever female Doctor.
The official Doctor Who website just shared a sneak peek at the new Thirteenth Doctor figurines coming from their toymaker partners at Funko, Titan, and Character Options—noting that all Funko and Titan toys will be on display at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con, and available for purchase in the fall.
Titan’s offerings (below) include two 6.5-inch figures, while Funko’s merchandise (pictured above) will include a vinyl Pop! and a Thirteenth Doctor Rock Candy option:
Character Options’s figure will be taller—10 inches—and much more detailed, with fabric clothing and a redesigned sonic screwdriver. (Fans can preorder the figure from Forbidden Planet now.)
For those who prefer to wear their fandom on their sleeve, and the rest of their body, a replica of Whittaker’s already-iconic striped shirt, blue trousers, and long coat will be available at Hot Topic stores this fall.
