This is the last of the Doctors produced in miniature by Citadel, and here’s the soft-toy cuddly version, below:

In all, perhaps Harley’s Davison (ho ho) is a victim of the company’s similar approach to the Eighth Doctor – a little rushed, culminating in something that lacks dynamism or real character. He doesn’t even have a hat, although an alternative sculpt (pictured here) at least gives him a cricket bat, which might do if you ever needed a Doctor to co-opt into a Shaun of the Dead-themed miniatures game.
An Evil Giraffe’s eyes and palette are wonderful, and faced with any number of options for rendering the Fifth Doctor’s problematic striped flannels, I took much inspiration from Mark Evans’ job (sadly no longer online, it seems). Finally, the curiously-named No Such Agency of the Lead Adventure Forum produced a rather lovely model from this mini, complete with a cricket ball for added colour, so there’s definitely hope . I must, however, confess to getting a little tetchy with Harlequin’s range, and I think my impatience shows here. To be honest, I’m very much looking forward to working on some more recent sculpts from other manufacturers.
