At the San Diego Comic-Con Lego released a new video of how Doctor Who (in Lego) will play out in their new Lego Dimensions video game.
It looks like from the video that you will be able to play all thirteen doctors in the game. In addition there are Daleks and Cybermen.
Well what do we have here, the Doctor in Lego.
Oh and K9 and a TARDIS.
Okay so not a proper set (just yet), but for the forthcoming Lego Dimensions console game.
The game uses “real” Lego which are then “brought” into the game. There is a real mix of brands, for example the starter set has Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle (from The Lego Movie).
You can expand the game with packs and these have so far included figures from the Lego franchises such as Ninjago, but also Wonder Woman, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz and Back to the Future.
With the release of some instructions, we now know that there will also be an expansion pack for Doctor Who.
The copyright notice for Doctor Who is quite interesting as it includes details of Daleks and Cybermen.

From this I would ascertain that we will see Lego Daleks and Cybermen, very likely in the game, but could mean Lego Daleks if and when more Doctor Who Lego is released. The BBC does not hold all the rights to all the Doctor Who monsters, therefore licensed products need to both licence Doctor Who from the BBC, but also need to licence Terry Nation (estate) for the Daleks.
In addition to Doctor Who we have also seen packs for Jurassic World, Scooby Doo, Portal and The Simpsons.
Let’s go back to 1979 to see John Cleese cameo in the City of Death episode starring Tom Baker.
I missed this when it first came to the fore.
Wholock: in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor appeared to meet in a video seamlessly cut together from the shows.
This is how some of the VFX were done.
Here is another of the metal miniatures from Harlequin Miniatures. This is Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart of UNIT. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart was one of the founders of UNIT and commander of its UK operations.
I painted his uniform with Flames of War English Uniform 921.
Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart was born in Scotland, according to dialogue in Terror of the Zygons. He first encounters the Second Doctor in The Web of Fear (1968), when Lethbridge-Stewart is a lieutenant colonel commanding a British Army detachment sent to investigate the Yeti in the London Underground. By his next appearance in The Invasion (1968), he had been promoted to Brigadier and was working with UNIT. When the Doctor was forcibly regenerated and exiled to Earth, Lethbridge-Stewart gave him a position as UNIT’s scientific advisor after he helped defeat the Auton invasion.
