A new action figure double-pack set of the classic series 1979 serial ‘City of Death’, widely regarded as one of the best Doctor Who stories not only of the Douglas Adams era but of all time. The double-figure set feature both the Fourth Doctor as played by Tom Baker, and ‘present day’ Count Scarlioni (played by Julian Glover) who also comes with an interchangeable head to replace with that of the Scaroth’s.
The set has been made by Character Options and will be available exclusively to Forbidden Planet International and ForbiddenPlanet.com online, which strangely seems to be becoming common practice for Doctor Who classic series action figures these days, despite their success being sold in normal waves previously.
‘City Of Death’ synopsis:
“While taking in the sights of Paris in 1979, the Fourth Doctor and Romana sense that someone is tampering with time. Who is the mysterious Count Scarlioni? Why does he seem to have counterparts scattered through time? And just how many copies of the Mona Lisa did Leonardo Da Vinci paint?”
The ‘City Of Death’ action figure set is expected to become available from Wednesday 19th October 2011 for £26.99, exclusively to Forbidden Planet in their UK stores and online (only shipping to residents in UK &amp; Ireland).
