For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Character Options presents a set of three unique Doctor and 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. The two additional Doctor and Daleks sets to be released from this range will feature the Seventh and War Doctors respectively.
Following the announcement earlier in June of this summer’s Big Finish-inspired Doctor Who merchandise from Character Options, a first preview image has been made available as a taste of what is to come.
Nicholas Briggs, Executive Producer of Big Finish and writer of the Dark Eyes boxset, told us about this bold fresh look for the romantic Eighth Doctor: "It’s great to see the Eighth Doctor in his Dark Eyes costume in this new set from Character Options. The costume was all Paul McGann’s idea when we recorded Dark Eyes. He was keen for us to take a new set of photos with him, as he felt we’d well and truly worn out the photos that had been taken on the set of the TV movie by a BBC photographer. A fan friend of his had made the costume for him, complete with brand new style sonic screwdriver. So that became his brilliant new look!"
Steve Berry, Head of Marketing at Big Finish said: “We are delighted to be working with Character Options on this project and cannot wait to see the items in store. Since the news broke that the sets will soon be available, we have been inundated with requests for an image. We hope that this small taste will add to the excitement of the Character Options online reveal taking place in July.”
The new Big Finish items will be part of a wider line-up of Character Options Doctor Who figures and accessories coming to B&M retail stores this summer.
Al Dewar, Creative Director at Character Options commented: “As you can imagine we’ve been keeping this inventive collaboration under wraps for a while so it’s fantastic to be able to release this first image of these unique additional sets to the B&M store range. As announced previously we plan to do a full unveiling live, which will take place ‘unboxing style’ on Character Options’ own You Tube channel in July; details of the time and date will be announced soon.”
