  1. Hhhhmmm, never in a million years would I have guessed that was supposed to be David Tennant!!??!

  2. I think the likenesses could have been better, cute dolls but not really like the actors. David Tennant and John Barrowman are far better looking than their dolls ;-)

  3. You know, Yve--I am not familiar with the Dr. Who show, but I've heard it recently acquired a new actor for the main character. Does this doll look more like the new actor?

    I wonder--and possibly if this is why the dolls took so long for approval? (They were announced January 2009.)

  4. Kayjay,

    I really like the John Barrowman doll, I have to admit, but don't think he's a great likeness, either.

    And I really like the clothes on both the women's dolls. :)

  5. Alison, the 11th doctor has a completely different costume so I do not think they are trying to base this doll on the new actor (Matt Smith).

  6. Oh--and he's called the 11th doctor, too? Thanks for the info, Nicole! :)
