Airfix has scooped a fantastic agreement with BBC Worldwide to produce a range of Doctor Who Airfix kits. The first kit, ‘Welcome Aboard’ consists of a 1:12 scale TARDIS with figures of the Doctor and his latest companion Martha Jones. Included are all the paints, brushes and glue required to complete the model which also comes with electronic lighting and sound effects.
The first series of Doctor Who was first screened on 23rd November 1963. It now has a cult following worldwide and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest running TV science fiction series ever. A special milestone was reached in 2003, a year which marked the 40th Anniversary of the programme where a series of celebrations marked the event which was attended by some of the actors who had featured in the program over the years.
The third season of the re-launched series ended in the summer and was followed up by a special ‘Children in Need’ edition called ‘Time Crash’ where the Doctor played by David Tennant met with Peter Davison, who was the fifth actor to play the Doctor. As well as the Christmas special which features Astrid, played by Kylie Minogue, the BBC has planned a fourth season, which is to be screened in 2008 with more Doctor Who planned for 2009 and 2010.
