Spot the toy soldier in the first episode of the new female Doctor Who

I spotted this Britain’s New Metal Guardsman in the first episode of the  new Doctor Who series – and I claim my toy soldier Geek Points!

It appears briefly on a shot of the desk of Ryan, one of the new young companions to a new female Doctor Who (Jodie Whittaker). It stands next to a photo of his Granny, who is another important character in this first episode.

No plot spoilers for you but the presence of the toy soldier hasn’t yet altered the plot.

I haven’t watched Doctor Who for years and years, not properly since my childhood days of watching Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker.

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

  1. I might go so far as to watch the new Doctor Who Episode 2, but this maybe a touch obsessive or extreme overenthusiasm after a 30 year gap? Is this too nerdy?
    Or maybe I should watch Star Wars Rogue One again for the umpteenth time, before looking at the amount of Airfix and other 54mm space figures awaiting in the painting queue … behind the Peter Laings, the Broken Britain’s figures etc … hmmm ….
