In 2000 a company called Sheercast began to release a series of 8inch painted porcelain figurines of all of the television Doctor Who’s up to the 8th Doctor.

The first four Doctors were immortalised in porcelain during this year, with the other following the next year.

They were reasonable likenesses of the Doctors and originally retailed at £79.

Each figurine came with a plaque on a wooden base with the actors name and an edition number on it. They also came in their very own presentation box and a unique authentication certificate, which they should do for almost £80 quid!
