The First Doctor had an unquenchable thirst to explore, and a knack of getting himself into trouble doing it. An exile from his homeworld, the Doctor wanders through space and time in his trusty TARDIS with his granddaughter Susan. Both a loving father-figure and a fierce opponent, he would often play deadly games with his foes. It was after preventing the Cybermen from absorbing the Earth’s energy, and with his body ‘wearing a bit thin’, that the First Doctor collapses to the TARDIS floor and begins his first regeneration.
To develop the most accurately scaled collector’s figure, our artists studied countless reference photographs, to create a realistic and authentic character portrait of the First Doctor so memorabily portrayed by actor William Hartnell. The Doctor’s trademark costume was hand-tailored in exacting detail, together with his accessories.
