Character Options is delighted to announce a new series of exclusive Doctor Who toys that will be available later this summer from local B&M stores (UK variety retailer). Full details of the product line-up (with images) will be revealed in the coming weeks but here’s a small taster of what will be available.

Fans of the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdrivers will be able to get their hands on a heritage set of three popular incarnations.. The new blister-pack series will include electronic versions, inspired by the 50th anniversary episode, of the Tenth, Eleventh and War Doctor’s sonics.

For action figure fans,Character Options presents a set of three unique Doctor & Dalek Twin Packs, inspired by the Doctor Who audio series from Big Finish. This includes a brand new take on the Eighth Doctor, plus the Dalek Interrogator Prime, as featured in Big Finish audio book story In the Garden of Death. The two additional Doctor and Daleks sets to be released from this range will feature the Seventh and War Doctors respectively.

This year there will be not one, but two new TARDIS & Doctor sets released, each with a completely new take on both the Doctor and the blue box, inspired by adventures spanning the 1970s and 1980s.

To complete the summer line-up there are three brand new collector sets with a range of three figures in each, inspired by the Classic adventures of the Second, Fourth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors.

Al Dewar, Creative Director at Character Options commented: “We are delighted to announce this first taster of what’s to come from our B&M stores Doctor Who toy range. To reveal the visuals of these brand new products, we plan to do a full unveiling live, which will take place ‘unboxing style’ on Character Options’ own Youtube channel in July; details of the time and date will be announced.

A Sarah Jane Adventures Actor is Starring in Doctor Who Series 12 | The Doctor Who Companion

"Anjli Mohindra is returning to the Doctor Who universe for Series 12, albeit playing a different character to her role in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Mohindra played Rani Chandra in the Who spin-off, first appearing in The Day of the Clown (2008) and staying with the show until its ending in 2011 (The Man Who Never Was). But in Doctor Who, she’ll play Queen Skithra in either episode 6 or 7 (or potentially both) of Series 12.

The two episodes are filming now, directed by Nida Manzoor (Dixi; Enterprice) and also starring Julia Foster as Marcia. One of these stories will also feature returning aliens, the Judoon.

Interestingly, Rani Chandra’s debut storyline starred Bradley Walsh as its villain; Walsh, of course, plays companion, Graham O’Brien in Doctor Who opposite Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor.

Since SJA, Mohindra has had a number of high-profile roles in shows like Cucumber, The Missing, The Boy with the Top Knot, and Bodyguard. We’re very much looking forward to seeing her in Doctor Who proper!"

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Kinda – Part 1
Sanders: You know something? This is my fourteenth ex and rec, and I've never seen a planet like this one. Look at it. Paradise, isn't it? The sun shines, the birds sing, food grows on trees. Even the ILF is friendly. Or used to be.
The Doctor: The ILF?
Todd: Intelligent Life Form.
Sanders: The primitives.
The Doctor: The Kinda.
(The Doctor gives Adric his breakfast plate.)
Todd: Yes.
Sanders: Oh, you're not eating.
The Doctor: Ah, no, no. I don't seem to be very, er. These difficulties you referred to?
Sanders: Well, go on, tell him. Why not?
Todd: Originally there were six of us.
The Doctor: Roberts?
Todd: And two more before him. They disappeared. Simply haven't returned to the dome.
The Doctor: What, do you think the Kinda took them?
Todd: Impossible.
The Doctor: Are the Kinda dangerous?
Sanders: We don't know. You see, with the Kinda, they seem innocent enough, and they smile a lot, or they used to.
The Doctor: Used to?
Sanders: Until we took the hostages.
The Doctor: The hostages?
Sanders: Only a couple. Standard procedure. It's in the manual.
Kinda – Part 2
The Doctor: Don't hurt him!
Hindle: Why not?
The Doctor: Don't.
Hindle: Oh, very well.
(The Kinda releases Adric.)
The Doctor: (to Todd) I think your guess was right. The Kinda are telepathic.
Todd: Why should they obey him?
The Doctor: I don't know. I've tried to communicate with them myself but I can't get through.
Hindle: The problem is knowing what punishment would be most appropriate.
Adric: To what?
Hindle: To teach you not to steal. Not to commit treason. To wash behind the ears. Must be painful, don't you think?
Todd: For heaven's sake!
Hindle: When I was a boy I was beaten every day. Never did me any harm. Made me the man I am.
The Doctor: Look, I have a suggestion.
Hindle: Silence! All right, speak up. What is it?
The Doctor: Well, I was simply going to suggest that you banished him from the dome, left him at the mercy of the trees.
Hindle: No, no, the trees have no mercy.
Kinda – Part 3
Karuna: There is another.
Panna: What other?
The Doctor: Hello.
Panna: A man!
Karuna: He was with her.
Panna: Impossible. Was he present when you opened the box?
The Doctor: Yes. Most enlightening.
Panna: What's he babbling about? No male can open the Box of Jhana without being driven out of his mind. It is well known. Unless. Is he an idiot?
Karuna: Are you an idiot?
The Doctor: Well, I suppose I must be. I have been called one many
Panna: Keep silent, idiot.
The Doctor: Yes.
Kinda – Part 4
The Doctor: And the security arrangements?
Hindle: Security effectiveness one hundred percent. One thousand percent. One billion trillion trillion percent. Or more, perhaps.
Sanders: Boom.
Hindle: Do you want me to prove it?
The Doctor: No. No, no. I'd rather know how you control the Kinda.
Hindle: Oh, that's very simple. With this. )He gets the hexagonal mirror from the table.) They're very primitive, you know. They think I've captured their souls.
The Doctor: Mirrors. Yes, very clever.
Hindle: Do you think so?
The Doctor: Yes. May I
(The Doctor treads on a couple of cardboard people.)
Hindle: Careful!
The Doctor: I'm so sorry.
(They both stoop to pick them up, and Hindle ends up pulling their heads off.)
Sanders: It's easily mended. A drop of glue.
Hindle: Don't be silly! You can't mend people, can you. You can't mend people!

The Visitation – Part 1
The Doctor: Earth, Heathrow, 1981.
Adric: Doctor?
The Doctor: Not one of the most stimulating places in the universe, but nevertheless, where requested to be.
Adric: Doctor?
(The scanner shows a woodland walk.)
The Doctor: Oh, no.
(Tegan and Nyssa enter.)
Tegan: Is that supposed to be Heathrow?
Adric: It is.
Tegan: Well, they've certainly let the grass grow since I was last there.
Adric: Well, actually, they haven't built the airport yet. We're about three hundred years early.
Tegan: That's great. Perhaps I can go out, file a claim on the land. When they get round to inventing the aircraft, I'll make a fortune.
The Doctor: Hmm, yes, a small error has been made.
Tegan: You call three hundred years a small error?
The Doctor: It's probably due to nothing more than a temperamental solenoid on the lateral balance cones.
Tegan: Why do you always have some incomprehensible answer?
The Doctor: And, as you know, the Tardis isn't always (A handle comes off in the Doctor's hand.) er, reliable.
Tegan: Call yourself a Time Lord? A broken clock keeps better time than you do. At least it's accurate twice a day, which is more than you ever are.
(Tegan opens the Tardis door and storms out.)
The Doctor: Why does she always overreact?
Nyssa: I think she's finding the idea of going more painful than she thought.
The Doctor: Then why didn't she say so, rather than fly off the handle like that.
Nyssa: That's Tegan.
Adric: Perhaps you'd better talk to her.
The Doctor: No, no, no. Too much has been said already. Earthlings.
The Visitation – Part 2
(Tegan and Adric are awake and strapped to the couch. The android moves around his room. Meanwhile, a monitor is switched on that shows the Doctor, Nyssa and Mace in the main room. There is no sound. The owner of a green scaly hand with long claws speaks.)
Leader: Who is this man?
Tegan: Who said that?
Leader: Answer my question!
Adric: The Doctor.
Leader: And where is this Doctor from?
Tegan: He's never told us. He likes to be mysterious, although he talks a lot about, er, Guildford. I think that's where he comes from.
Leader: You are being a very stupid woman.
Tegan: That isn't a very original observation.
Leader: I know that he is not of this planet or time.
Adric: What rubbish.
Leader: The Doctor has a sonic device which he used to dismantle the energy barrier. He also has an understanding of the gas known as soliton.
Adric: We don't know anything about that.
Leader: You are wearing synthetic garments manufactured by technology as yet unknown on this planet.
Tegan: You'll have to ask my tailor about that.
The Visitation – Part 3
Leader: I said I would demonstrate how I'm to rid this planet of all it's primitives. It's very simple.
(Tegan removes the sack from the cage. The Terileptil uses his sonic hypodermic on the squeaking occupants.)
The Doctor: The poor old black rat and his flea.
Leader: The infection it now carries has been genetically re-engineered. Although heavily infected, it will outlive you all.
The Doctor: But you'd need thousands of them.
Leader: I have thousands of them. They are awaiting release in a nearby city. Their infection will kill every living thing.
The Doctor: I thought the local plague was already doing that?
Leader: Ah, but our rats will ensure there are no survivors. A final visitation.
The Doctor: Then who will serve you?
Leader: Now we have your Tardis, we can travel the universe and acquire androids.
The Doctor: This carnage isn't necessary.
Leader: It's survival, Doctor. Just as these primitives kill lesser species to protect themselves, so I kill them.
The Doctor: That's hardly an argument.
Leader: It's not supposed to be an argument. It's a statement!
The Visitation – Part 4
The Doctor: How do you feel, now?
Tegan: Groggy, sore and bad-tempered.
The Doctor: Oh, almost your old self.
Tegan: It's not very funny. I feel awful. Why is he so full of beans?
Mace: I'm a man of iron.
The Doctor: It's more likely the electrical charge I gave him. So, what am I to do about these?
(His manacles.)
Mace: Have no fear, I am at hand. Have you a piece of wire?
(The Doctor takes out his safety pin.)
The Doctor: Will this be any good?
Mace: Ah. Interesting device. Perfect! I once knew a French acrobat. He wasn't very good at tumbling, but his skill with a piece of bent iron was phenomenal. Luckily, he passed his skill onto me which enabled me to extricate my fee from the strong boxes of more than one disreputable theatre manager. Eureka!

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Black Orchid – Part 1
Adric: So what is a railway station?
The Doctor: Well, a place where one embarks and disembarks from compartments on wheels, drawn along these rails by a steam engine. Rarely on time.
Nyssa: What a very silly activity.
The Doctor: You think so? As a boy I always wanted to drive one.
(A chauffeur is passing the time polishing the Rolls Royce. He goes to greet the Doctor as he walks through the gate.)
Tanner: Good afternoon, sir. I'm Tanner, Lord Cranleigh's chauffeur.
The Doctor: Lord Cranleigh?
Tanner: Yes, sir.
The Doctor: We're expected?
Tanner: Oh yes, sir. You are the Doctor?
The Doctor: Indeed.
Nyssa: May I ask what you're staring at?
Tanner: I'm sorry, miss.
(Tanner opens the passenger door.)
Tanner: Please, sir, if you don't mind. The game's already started. His lordship won the toss and decided to bat first to give you time to get here. That train's always late.
The Doctor: That's very thoughtful of his Lordship.
Tanner: Er, yes, sir. But I do think we should hurry. His lordship is a first class bat, but I'm not quite sure how strong his support is this year.
The Doctor: Come on, you lot.
(Tanner gives the trousered Nyssa a strange look, then salutes the Doctor. They all climb into the back of the vintage Rolls Royce and are driven off.)
Black Orchid – Part 2
Charles: His neck's broken.
Muir: By the look of him, it couldn't have happened in a fall.
Charles: What's that? (Ann's mask is on the floor. Muir picks it up.) Ann was wearing this.
Muir: Or the other one.
Charles: No, no, that was the other one out there on the terrace. Something's happened to Ann.
(Muir takes off his full-bottomed wig.)
Muir: I'll telephone the station.
(The Doctor comes down the stairs.)
The Doctor: Had an accident?
Charles: I'm afraid it's a little more serious than that, Doctor.
(Lady Cranleigh and Ann come down the stairs.)
Ann: That's him! That's who attacked me!
(The Doctor takes off his mask.)
The Doctor: It's me.
Ann: Yes, you. And he did that. I saw him.
Charles: Doctor?
The Doctor: I'm afraid Miss Talbot is mistaken. I've just this minute come down the stairs.
Ann: I am not mistaken! He danced with me and then pulled me in here. I shouted for help, James came and he killed him.
The Doctor: I say, look here.
Ann: Sir Robert! Arrest that man. He killed James. I saw him.
The Doctor: Lady Cranleigh, please.
Lady Cranleigh: Charles, shouldn't you
Muir: No, Madge. Wait until the Sergeant gets here.
Lady Cranleigh: But our guests
Muir: I suggest, Charles, that you call it a day. Tell your guests there's been an accident and ask them to go home.
Charles: What about him?
Muir: I'll deal with this.
Charles: Right-o.
(Charles leaves.)
Muir: Now, Ann.
Ann: This man attacked me and then killed James.
The Doctor: Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
Ann: You did! He did. He danced with me on the terrace, brought me in here and then he
The Doctor: Miss Talbot is quite mistaken. I have just come down these stairs. Before that, I was. Wait a minute. Was I like this?
(He holds the mask in front of this face.)
Ann: Yes.
The Doctor: Well, that's it, then.
Muir: What is it?
The Doctor: A completely logical explanation. A duplication of fancy dress. Someone else must be wearing an identical costume.
Ann: No.
Muir: But my dear.
Ann: No!
Muir: Now be reasonable.
Ann: I am being reasonable.
Muir: What about your own costume? There are two of those.
Ann: My little joke, Sir Robert. I was in charge of the costumes. There was only one harlequin. That one.
Muir: Doctor?
The Doctor: And only one murderer. Lady Cranleigh, I agreed to keep it from your guests, but I have the distinct feeling I'm in rather hot water. (Lady Cranleigh looks to the ceiling.) Miss Talbot.
Ann: Yes?
The Doctor: Why?
Ann: Why what?
The Doctor: Why would I attack you? Have you done me any harm?
Ann: No!
The Doctor: No, then I've no reason to harm you. And besides
Muir: Besides what?
The Doctor: Well, it wouldn't be cricket.
