Oh, what the Doctor would do with LEGO bricks.

The LEGO Group announced last week that they're working a new LEGO set based on the BBC series Doctor Who. Set for release by the end of 2015, the set will reportedly feature several of the Doctors, companions as well as "monsters" from the long-running sci-fi drama series. LEGO Group made the announcement in this video:

The idea for the set originated from an idea by Doctor Who fan Andrew Clark which LEGO Group then put up for a fan-vote, garnering over 10,000 votes from fans online. LEGO Group says that the set will be based on Clark's recommendations, but didn't reveal the full extent of what the set would contain.

That being said, the press releases names the current Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, and his companion as played by Jenna Coleman, so it's assumable those two characters are confirmed as having LEGO figures.
