While Doctor Who has been around for over 50 years now, it's really become a big thing in America over the past 10 years thanks to the likes of David Tennant and Netflix. The show's popularity is showing no signs of slowing down and come this Fall, we're likely to see a huge spike. The LEGO Group has just announced that they will be producing a LEGO Doctor Who set, thanks to to the LEGO IDEAS website where fans were able to submit ideas for a set and vote for their favorite idea to be produced.

Emma Owen, UK spokesperson for LEGO Ideas commented:

We’re extremely excited to announce that a Doctor Who and a WALL-E set will be released as our next LEGO Ideas fan based sets, congratulations to the designers Andrew Clark and Angus MacLane! After receiving over 10,000 votes from the online community and having gone through rigorous toy testing from our expert panel, these awesome sets are on track to be on shelves later this year. The final set designs, pricing and availability are being worked out as we speak, so watch this space for the final details!

Nowadays Peter Capaldi dons the role of The Doctor, but I imagine sets including all of the past Doctors will be produced as well. For me, the show is somewhat of a fun mash-up of Quantum Leap meets Star Trek, but I don't watch it religiously. Frankly, I'm surprised a movie hasn't come our way yet but we'll see how that goes in the coming years. At the very least we may see Peter Jackson bring his directing expertise to the infamous Doctor. Now that's something I can get behind!

Special thanks to BlobVanDam for his animation expertise!  Check out more of his videos here!
