After over 40 years of commanding our television sets, Doctor Who is finally making his leap to LEGO.

Following a successful campaign launched via the crowdsourcing page, LEGO Ideas, the firm has revealed that it will now be producing a LEGO Doctor Who set.

The Doctor Who concept, designed by Andrew Clark received the 10,000 votes requisite for The LEGO Group to consider it for production.

Calls for a Doctor Who LEGO set have been a constant focus of Whovians and LEGO fans for some time however due to various licensing restrictions, have until now been left unanswered.

Now, a licensing agreement between BBC Worldwide and The LEGO Group will see the new set available in all of The LEGO Group’s key markets before the end of the year.

Clark’s initial idea featured a range of Doctors, companions and monsters across the show’s history, however fans will have to wait until later this year to find out what will be included in the upcoming set.

Marcus Arthur, MD of BBC Worldwide UK, said: “Both Doctor Who and LEGO enjoy a particularly close relationship with their fans and I can’t wait to see what LEGO produces.”

Emma Owen, UK spokesperson for LEGO Ideas, added: “We are extremely excited to announce that a Doctor Who and a WALL-E set will be released as our next LEGO Ideas fan based sets, congratulations to the designers Andrew Clark and Angus MacLane.

“After receiving 10,000 votes from the online community and having gone through rigorous toy testing from our expert panel, these awesome sets are on track to be on shelves later this year.

“The final set designs, pricing and availability are being worked out as we speak, so watch this space for the final details.”
