There will also be a special box box set containing every Mr Men Doctor so far (First, Second, Fourth, Seventh, Eight, Night, Eleventh, and Twelfth) called The Doctors: Time and Space Collection. The set, comes in a collectible box and includes a poster featuring brand new artwork by Hargreaves, is available to pre-order online.
As well as the books, the first four Mr Men Doctors are also being realised as collectible figurines, which will be available to purchase this Autumn for £9.99. Based on actors William Hartnell, Tom Baker, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi, the figures recreate each Doctor in the classic Mr Men style.
Adam Hargreaves himself also recently spoke about drawing the Doctors and how he managed to capture their likeness and personality:
“The tricky bit about drawing the Doctors as Mr. Men is finding a balance between getting a good caricature and resemblance of the real actor and also maintaining a true Mr. Men style. I have tried to avoid just drawing a cartoon version of a Doctor’s face and then plonking this in a circle with arms and legs. A Mr. Man story is an exploration of one particular human characteristic or emotion which my dad did by taking that personification and placing it in the world and then highlighting this absurdity using his daft, silly sense of humour. How would your day unfold if you were only possessed of a grumpy nature? What sort of job would you do if you could only rush around manically?”
