Doctor Who Collection Completion!

So after months of preparation and weeks and weeks of work, I finally finished the set of Doctor Who dolls and Tardis I was commissioned to make! I really truly enjoyed making these guys and I swear, I almost teared up when I packed them all up and shipped them to Washington state. There is a lucky husband out there with a wife who loves him (and Doctor Who) a lot!

I posted before about the previous doctors I've finished, but I'll go ahead and show them all in order and then show off the massive Tardis they can fit inside!

First Doctor, 1963-66, William Hartnell 



Second Doctor, 1966-69, Patrick Troughton


Third Doctor, 1970-74, Jon Pertwee



Fourth Doctor, 1974-81, Tom Baker


Fifth Doctor, 1981-84, Peter Davison




Sixth Doctor, 1984-86, Colin Baker


Seventh Doctor, 1987-89, Sylvester McCoy


Eighth Doctor, 1996, Paul McGann



Ninth Doctor, 2005, Christopher Eccleston


Tenth Doctor, 2005-2010, David Tennant


Eleventh Doctor, 2010-present, Matt Smith


Tardis and Tenth Doctor

What do you think? I LOVED MAKING THEM! Yes! I did! It was a ton of work, but gee, they were fun. So guess what? The patterns will be released in January and right now you can preorder all 12 patterns as a set in my Etsy shop!  CLICK HERE!

  5. Wow. It is so cool to see all of these in one place together. And I spent a long time looking at all the subtle variations in head shape and facial expressions among the different Doctors. It's really amazing how well you captured the spirit of each man in just a few deft eyebrow/smile lines. You're so talented, Allison. I just love seeing all the wonderful things you come up with!

  9. I was born the year Dr Who was first aired. It is generational in our family. Mum watches it, I do and my 31 yo son does, too! You have done an absolutely magnificent job with ALL the Doctors!

  10. I found your site quite by accident today and I must say that I am so in AWE of your talent! I am not really a Dr. Who fan but these dolls really make me want to be! WOW....just WOW!

  11. Truly amazing work. You are very gifted with your hook.

    ReplyDelete
  12. These are truly wonderful! The mind boggles at how much work you put into them but the result is stunning. As a crafter and Dr. Who fan, I salute you!

  13. Oh, they're beautiful!!!!! I would never ever be able to depart from them, if it were me... I have a question though... Actually, two! First: what yarn did you use for David Tennant/Tenth doctor's hair? Because it is perfect! And will there be loose patterns for the doctors, or maybe a 9-10-11 pack, since they are the new series? A lot of us don't know the old series, so I think that will get you a lot of customers, since it's quite pricey to buy the whole pack...

    1. I wondered the same thing about David Tennant's hair. It is perfect.

  14. Absolutely amazing!! You are very talented indeed, well done with this huge piece of work!

  15. That's a spectacular job. It was a challenge to capture each one with a crochet hook and you did it so well.

  16. Oh my gosh, you are amazing!!! My husband and I started watching through all of the old Dr. Who series a few weeks ago :)You did such an awesome job-- incredible!!!

  18. Unbelievable. My hat is definitely off to you!!

  19. These are great, would you consider designing a few newer main characters for another companion set of patterns? Aka: Rose, Martha, Amy and Rory, River

    1. That is a real possibility! The woman who purchased these is thinking of another gift... ;)

  25. I am lost for words here - YOU SERIOUSLY ROCK! Your Doctors look so much like their flesh and blood counterparts, that's amazing. And the TARDIS is co cool! :-)

    Cheers

  32. They are amazing, I've just fallen in love with, they are incredibly accurate ! I'd love to have your talent.

  33. They're perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  34. I love your crochet style, these doctors are fantastic. My favourite is the 10th doctor, I really love what you did with his hair.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If you had the set premade you could sell them to Dr Who fans like myself for huge bucks. If I had the spare income I would easily pay $500 for the complete set at least.

    ReplyDelete
  36. How long did it take you to make these???

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are so amazing! Just like everyone else has said, they look so realistic. They are by far the best I've seen. Unfortunately, I don't know how to crochet. Is it likely that you might sell the dolls themselves at any point? I would like the 10th doctor (and maybe a TARDIS). These are better than any that I've seen on Etsy - I think if you offered to sell the dolls themselves you would do a good business, for non-crafty types like me.

  38. AMAZING WORK! KODOS FOR BEAUTIFUL AND ACCURATE CREATIONS!

    ReplyDelete
  39. These are AWESOME! I'd love to get a hold of these pattens.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Is there any way in the future you would be selling the individual patterns? A bit costly for me to buy all at once. I want to make the Tardis and Tennant and Smith for starters. I will just reiterate what everone else has said. You rock!!!

  41. Are you sure you can't buy the DOLLS? I really want them.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMG ( I never say that, but this required it). THESE ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. How much would you charge to purchase the whole set (crocheted) - I do not crochet - but would love a set!

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are beautiful! I wish I knew how to crochet so I could make these myself! I was smiling as I scrolled down the page looking at each of the Doctors individually. I love that you've got all of their personalities in the dolls. These are truly amazing! Lovely work! FANTASTIC!

  46. Love your work! I'm only a beginner to amigurumi but I am so glad to have found your site early on as it has taught me that amigurumi when done right can be a realistic representation of what it is - not just a rough approximation. Well done!

  47. I am so impressed with your incredible talent. I must have the patterns for the recent doctors to make for my granddaughter, a rabid fan. Will you also be doing the twelfth doctor now he has been identified? Yours are such wonderfully realistic creations, I hope I can do a half-way decent job of making them. Thanks so much.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Would you ever make a full set again for order? I LOVE these, but I can't crochet at all.

    ReplyDelete
  49. OH GOD! THIS IS PERFECTION! Look at two!!! he has the same exact face! so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Amazing! They are so adorable. These would make perfect christmas gift for my friend but I think it is already too little time till chirstmas. :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. So if I were to try and get these all premade (like every single doctor plus TARDIS) how much would that cost me and is it possible since i have like 0 skill and 100% need of this set in my life. Like I am fangirling like its the 50th up in here! I'm gonna cry! I WANNA SNUGGLE UP WITH ALL OB DEM LIKE RIGHT NOW!

  52. if u reply reply to this bc i think i forgot to check notify me and I MUST BE NOTIFIED BC THIS IS LIKE A LIFE OR DEATH THING RIGHT NOW I DID NOT KNOW I NEEDED THIS UNTIL NOW!

  53. I don't know you. But I love you. LOVE you!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can't even imagine how you made the patterns for these! I am up to making a third doll and the Tardis and the amount of work involved is an absolute credit to you! Having so much fun seeing them evolve. Currently doing David Tennant and having a hard time finding the right yarn for his hair....I'll find it. :-)

  55. I just bought the set, and wanted to ask: any plans to add Peter Capaldi and/or John Hurt to the roster?

  56. Why is the set no longer available? :(
