Doctor Who: An Unearthly Child


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

Have you ever thought what it's like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension? Have you? To be exiles? Susan and I are cut off from our own planet - without friends or protection. But one day we shall get back. Yes, one day….The Doctor

On 23 November 1963 a legend was forged, the BBC aired the first episode of Doctor Who, entitled ‘An Unearthly Child’ it set the ground for over fifty years of time and space exploration. This set depicts that momentous event of television history. Other sets on LEGO Ideas are based around the latest incarnations of Doctor Who, this idea aims to go back to where it all began and tell the origin story of the legendary time lord.

This set includes the entrance to 76 Totter’s Lane, where the First Doctor parked his TARDIS so his granddaughter Susan could visit the local Coal Hill School to learn about the twentieth century, but her strange unworldly behaviour intrigues two of the staff members; history teacher Barbara Wright and Science teacher Ian Chesterton, who decide to visit Susan at home, only to find Susan entering the mysterious junkyard!

The Minifigures

The minifigures included in this set are as always the Doctor and his companions; the First Doctor (played by William Hartnell), his eager granddaughter Susan (Carol Ann-Ford), the skilful Ian Chesterton (William Russell) and the empathic Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill).


No Doctor Who set would be complete without a TARDIS, and this set is no exception. Arguably more iconic than the Doctor himself, the space and time machine has been a staple of the show since day one (as represented here) a clever mix of visionary design and budgetary constrains, the idea for a humble police box to become a Type 40 TARDIS was ingenious. Now you can visit different locations across the LEGO universe and create new stories with your own TARDIS. With a little help from the TARDIS, the Doctor can collide with characters from Pirates, Castle, Ninjago, Chima, The Hobbit, Blacktron and more!

"I know that free movement in time and space is a scientific dream I don't expect to find solved in a junkyard!" Ian Chesterton

The Junkyard

The junkyard as first visited in ‘An Unearthly Child’ has been featured a number of times in Doctor Who history, mostly during the shows anniversaries; The Sixth Doctor in ‘Attack of the Cybermen’, the Seventh Doctor in 'Remembrance of the Daleks’ and most recently in the fiftieth anniversary special ‘The Day of the Doctor’ with David Tennant’s and Matt Smith’s Doctors.

This set, if produced would contain 4 minifigures, the TARDIS and Junkyard Street Diorama.
