In the last decade or so, Lego art (opens in new tab) has been a firmly established part of the geek world: we've had Lego Star Wars, Lego Simpsons (opens in new tab), even Lego Ghostbusters... But there's been one geek phenomenon conspicuous by its absence: the show about a maverick time traveller that's now been on our screens for 50 and a bit years: Doctor Who (opens in new tab).
That seems to have largely been down to a rights issue. But this appears to have been resolved, because on February 27, Lego Cuusoo (opens in new tab) - the official site set up by Lego for fans to propose and vote on new characters - announced that Doctor Who proposals could now be submitted. There have been a ton of entries already, but it's this proposal from Andrew Clarke (opens in new tab), a senior artist at Firaxis Games (opens in new tab), that seems to have caught the public's attention.
Attracting more than 5,000 votes at time of writing, the set features a range of characters from the show's history, including an older and more recent incarnation of the Doctor, Daleks (opens in new tab), K9, Weeping Angels, Cyberman and a TARDIS console.
Clarke's proposal needs 10,000 votes to be considered by Lego, and even then that doesn't necessarily mean it'll be made. But it's clear that Doctor Who is coming to Lego in some form or another - and that's going to make present-buying a lot easier for certain people come Christmas time.
