The TV adaptation of the highly popular series of 'Doctor' books by Richard Gordon was a massive hit for ITV on its original transmission in 1969. Centred on the hilarious misadventures of a team of young doctors at St. Swithin's Hospital, the series showcased the talents of Barry Evans, Robin Nedwell, Geoffrey Davies and Richard O'Sullivan as their characters made painful progress from newly qualified juniors to fully fledged medical malcontents under the scrutiny of the fearsome Professor Loftus (Ernest Clark). Featuring scripts from a team of writers that included Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden (The Goodies), John Cleese and Graham Chapman (Monty Python's Flying Circus), Barry Cryer (The Two Ronnies, The Kenny Everett Television Show) and Douglas Adams (Hitch-hiker's Guide...), its original setting and robust humour made the Doctor series essential viewing. The series lasted for nearly a decade and this 20-disc set presents every hilarious episode, originally screened between 1969 and 1977.
After being assaulted by a mysterious child in a rainy Gotham alley, Bruce Wayne wakes up strapped to a hospital bed and… he’s never been Batman? Based on the celebrated comic series Batman: Last Knight on Earth by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, The Last Knight Q-Fig Elite presents Bruce Wayne twenty years in the future, rumbling through an apocalyptic wasteland that was once Gotham City. Clad in a modified Arkham straight jacket and a handmade bat cowl, Batman wanders a devastated landscape carrying only a glass lantern containing the head of a seemingly alive and very talkative Joker. The Last Knight Q-Fig Elite is a revolution in premium collectibles. Featuring unparalleled craftsmanship and intricate sculpting, The Last Knight is a step beyond what has previously been possible in small-scale collectible figures. Witness the extraordinary engineering of Batman’s jacket straps - which defy gravity as they seemingly billow in an invisible wind - to the multitudes of metallic clasps and leather straps that detail this amazing figure. Even the Joker’s animated head is readily visible through the clear-cast lantern glass, despite collecting an eerie red dust that may be all that is left of the once booming Gotham City. The Last Knight Q-Fig Elite is a must-have for any Batman collector. Standing approximately 4 inches tall including the dioramic base, The Last Knight Q-Fig Elite is scheduled to ship in Q3, 2020. Batman is just one in our series of DC Comics Q-Figs. Be sure to check out the rest of our amazing superheroes and villains!
