Doctor Who 10th Doctor Collectors Set, B&M Stores Exclusive (Character Toys)

The Doctor Who 10th Doctor Collectors Set was released in late August 2022 and was part of the Exclusive B&M Stores Sets for 2022. It features three versions of David Tennant's 10th Doctor, all packed into the usual B&M 3-pack box complete with TARDIS blue box art and the gold foil 'Limited Edition' sticker.

Up first is the 10th Doctor in blue suit. This uses the original 2006 David Tennant figure mold and head rather than take advantage of the improved 2010 head sculpt. The rear of the box promises updated shoulder articulation, but this has not materialised on the figure due to an error at Character when creating the box blurb. The blue of the suit is crisp and bright and as seen in Series 3.

Also taken from Series 3 is the blue suited look with the brown overcoat. Again the 2006 figure is used as a base and the articulation remains as it was when the figure first graced store shelves. Again, the blue of the suit is impressive and an improvement on the previously released Series 3 suited Doctor.

The final figure uses the 2010 'Raggedy' 11th Doctor body but with the addition of the 2006 10th Doctor Head - the third use of this head in the set. The rear blurb attributes this look for the 10th Doctor to the Comic Adventures rather than any onscreen appearance. The figure works as the boy shape of the Raggedy Doctor was always closer to Tennant than it was to Matt Smith's proportions and you can imagine the 10th Doctor taking off his jacket and rolling up his sleeves during some adventure or other. The weathering on the figure is also impressive on top of the usual base paint colour pallet.

The 10th Doctor Collectors Set was priced at £21.99 at launch, equating to £7.33 per figure. Compared to previous B&M 3-packs, the set feels a bit lacklustre, especially when we were promised updated articulation and when a better Tennant head sculpt exists, but was not used. Like most B&M sets, there are no accessories either - not even a single sonic screwdriver for the three of them to share. The set was a shelf-warmer for quite a while and was reduced to £16.99 in late 2022, but it soon found its market when the 13th Doctor materialised into David Tennant's 14th Doctor and proceeded on selling out quite soon after at most B&M stores.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
