Growing up in Asia, the classic Doctor Who was never available to me, so I only got into the show around 2005 here in the States, with the Ninth Doctor. Nevertheless, I’m excited about the 50th anniversary of the show this year. But not as excited as Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy), who promises 11 LEGO models over the next several months, each inspired by the incarnations of the Doctor since 1963.
Thorsten starts off with the most recent Doctor, and in fact the most recent Doctor Who episode — the Christmas special titled simply “The Snowmen.”
I think Iain put it best: “Longest. Post. Ever.“
The death-rays that Daleks use to EXTERMINATE! make sense. The plungers? Not so much. Pascal (pasakuru76) helps me to understand the purpose of that singular device.
The Death Glider from Stargate is a challenging ship to build due to its curved shape, but Kevin Walter convincingly replicated it in Lego. The brick-built canopy looks very good.
Adrian Drake (brickfrenzy just completed his 70,000 piece Serenity (from the wonderful but short-lived series Firefly) after more than 475 hours of work over nearly two years.
The ship weights 135 pounds and has a complete interior, from bow to stern. Many interior spaces also have lighting, and the shuttles detach.
We’ve featured some great Serenity models here on The Brothers Brick over the years, but none at minifig scale. See 75 photos of this awesome model on Flickr.
(My challenge to build a minifig-scale Prometheus still stands…)
It’s wonderful to have Doctor Who back on the air, and even better that those of us watching it on BBC America don’t have to wait weeks for it after it airs in the UK. This week’s episode wrapped up the season opener rather nicely, and this LEGO treatment by Legoagogo is rather nice as well.
I’ve seen many brick renders of the TARDIS from Doctor Who, but I’ve never seen the interior built with Lego until Mr. Xenomurphy presented his latest creation. You don’t have to be a fan of the TV show to appreciate the striking architectural design with its intricate details and working lights. Check out the gallery on MOCpages for more photos including construction shots.
Andrew Summersgill (Doctor Sinister) presents a potential future for the Doctor Who series. The 83rd Doctor (from series 340-343 aired between 2336 and 2339) doesn’t have quite the same heroic qualities as the first 82 Doctors…

Yosemite Sam rocks. Do I really need to say anymore? Annie Diment hit one out of the park with this build. Sweet, I say, sweet.
I was a major GI Joe fan, back in the day, and I have to admit that the Dreadnoks were some of my favorite characters. These three guys, Buzzer, Ripper, and Torch, were the original three. I think that’s why Angus MacLane’s CubeDude renditions warm the cockles of my heart.
I’ve been enjoying the recent Doctor Who for several years now, but I actually preferred Torchwood. Regardless, I’m looking forward to the next incarnation of the Doctor — the 11th — here portrayed in LEGO, complete with a TARDIS, by Mark Stafford (lego_nabii):
