Doctor Who Project - Doctors and Companions

After a long hiatus, here are some pictures of the man himself: the Doctor.  Well, two versions of him anyway.

First up are the 3rd Doctor (Jon Pertwee, 1970-74) and his last companion, Sarah Jane Smith.  Most of this Doctor's stories are set on Earth, where he had been exiled by the Time Lords.  This was also UNIT's heyday and provides a lot of scenario ideas.  These are both Black Tree Design figures and were painted in 2011.

The fourth Doctor (Tom Baker, 1974-81) was the longest running, the first one I saw and has always been my favorite.  These are his first group of companions, Sarah Jane Smith on the right and Harry Sullivan on the left.  These are also from Black Tree Design and painted in 2011.

And these are two of the 4th Doctor's later companions: Leela of the Sevateem and the robot dog K-9.  Leela is from Black Tree and K-9 is made by Heresy Miniatures.  The body is sold as a 'D-06 General Duty Robot' and the head is sold as a 'Security Upgrade'.  Both were painted in 2011.

I am planning on returning to my Doctor Who project in the near future in order to prepare a scenario I want to run at Siege of Augusta in January 2014.  Thanks for looking!



  1. I am of an age where I was introduced to the first (William Hartnell) and 2nd (Patrick Troughton)incarnations of the Doctor on TV. I never got the hang of that Tom Baker guy. Black Tree Designs are one of my favorite sources for miniatures and I have a group of Daleks waiting to paint. Great job on the minis and good luck with your project.

  2. Great stuff, I'd be interested to see Black Tree's K-9 next to yours, for scale comparison.

  3. Hi :) Great minis! I'm trying to hunt down a Sarah Jane Smith like yours (to complete my set/diorama) through Black Tree Design but that particular model doesn't seem to be an option.
    Could you please tell me where you got it?

    1. The Sarah Jane Smith is figure DW306. It is not on the Black Tree website anymore, so it must be one of the figures they have run out of. You can sometimes find DW figures on Ebay, or you could post to the DWMG Facebook page or Yahoo group, or to the Crooked Dice forum to see if anyone has an extra one.

    2. Excellent, thanks for the quick reply :)
