I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. (Another Doctor Who joke.)

Correct this. Now. You won't be sorry anymore.

Re: If you were an action figure...

I'd say start with the reimagined series (2005-). The old Doctor Who (1963-1989) has its charms, but it's a very different product, with low budget visuals and a very didactic approach, so it's not for everybody.

The new series is a continuation of the old, but with modern sensibilities and storylines. The main character is a near-immortal Time Lord who can cheat death by "regenerating" his body, so eleven actors have played him so far: seven for the old series, one for a tv movie during the 90s, and three in the new series (Nine, Ten, Eleven). You have one season for Nine (Christopher Eccleston), three for Ten (David Tennant), and three (so far) for Eleven (Matt Smith).

It's an excellent show, I can't really recommend it enough.

Re: If you were an action figure...

I'd have two versions.

"Casual Bob" would come dressed in jeans, t-shirt and an light unbuttoned overshirt. Accessories would be a fishing pole, Browning Hi-power, and sunglasses.

"Professional Bob" would be in lawyer friendly version of my Paramedic uniform. Black boots, medic pants, and short sleeve shirt with generic looking patches. He'd come with a Stretcher, Lifepak 12 monitor (with Defibrillator pads), and a medic bag. Ambulance and Helicopter would of course be sold separately.




Maybe if things took off there could be a Comic Con exclusive version "Future Bob" in a TOS short-sleeve medical uniform. He'd come with a Type 1 phaser, medical tricorder, and communicator.

Grace the Graceless Wonder would probably be wearing a blue, cowlneck sweater; blue jeans and Dansko clogs. My accessories would be a bottle of Jagermeister *I'm a borderline alcoholic*, my cell phone; and my I.D.

I'd be curious to see how many accessories and how big a wardrobe Holdfast's action figure comes with!

He'd be a classy mr. Potato head really

No, I'm imagining a "sold separately" wardrobe that would take up more space on store shelves than the Barbie collection.
Lol I was kind of thinking of a cross between mr potato head and a ken doll. You'll get the basic attachments in with the doll but all the cool stuff comes seperately.

Re: If you were an action figure...

Say my name three times, and I will appear...

Yeah, it's going to be tricky to narrow it down to 3 accessories and only one outfit. I think with that restriction (no fair; Ken has a whole range of different looks), I'd probably go with a grey tweedy suit, pale blue shirt, dark brown/cherry wingtips, a large-patterned pocket handkerchief in either silk or a wool/silk blend, and an appropriate tie, maybe a madder of some sort. If I can sneak in outerwear as part of the wardrobe without breaking the accessories limit, I'd add my dark brown plaid Chesterfield, brown/grey tartan scarf & dark brown leather gloves. It's a look I'm fond of wearing anyway in winter, so why not.

Accessories would be a nice pen, my glasses and an expenses claim form...

(Also, I'm kinda bummed nobody commented on my Tenth Doctor outfit. I guess few people get excited about Time Lords' fashion )
I never saw Dr Who to my knowledge it hasn't ever aired in Germany
Actually, it did. It was butchered by ProSieben on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. After two seasons it was cancelled. Do yourself a favour and watch the original version.
The old show also aired on German TV in the 90s (not all of it, though, I suppose).
