Time Crash 2-Pack (SDCC 08 Exclusive)
Review by JoshB
The Time Crash 2-pack features two different incarnations of The Doctor – the Fifth and the Tenth Doctor, played by Peter Davison and David Tennant, respectively.
The set is based on the short episode “Time Crash” in which two different versions of The Doctor meet onboard the TARDIS. It was filmed for a 2007 “Children in Need” televised fundraiser.
This particular set was a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive for 2008.
The Tenth Doctor figure is just about identical to the one released as a regular figure, but the Fifth Doctor is a bit different.
First – The Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant. Arguably the most popular of the recent Doctors, this figure is nothing that special. The Doctor is shown here with a blue suit with red Converse All Star shoes. A slight variation is the red shirt worn beneath the suit.
Like all Underground Toys releases, The Doctor has great articulation, but misses out on a key joint – the ankles. Simple ankle joints would make these toys much more dynamic.
The Tenth Doctor features a decent likeness of David Tennant, and comes with a floppy rubber sonic screwdriver.
The Fifth Doctor is the same figure as reviewed here, but with slightly different paint applications and a stalk of celery attached to the jacket. The Doctor also comes with his signature Sonic Screwdriver.
It’s worth noting that the depiction of the Fifth Doctor in this two-pack does not represent the way he appears in Time Crash. Peter Davison hadn’t played The Doctor since 1984 (aside from a special) and he’s aged quite a bit in real life. He appears aged in the Time Crash special, but he appears as his younger self in the two-pack.
