LEGO, sometimes spelled Lego, was a children's building game that produced "ordinary space LEGO", as well as Star Wars-themed sets. They didn't have spaceship LEGOs when Tom Braudy's grandmother grew up. Tom thought that space LEGO was for boys only, while girls liked building hairdressers and flower shops. He built a ship to go to Mars, and then a bigger one to go to Jupiter the next week, before the Eighth Doctor and companions materialised the TARDIS in their sitting room. (AUDIO: Memory Lane) Space-themed sets were produced in Ace's time as well, who crashed spaceships into LEGO police stations in her early youth. (PROSE: Set Piece)
LEGO figures were tiny in comparison to real people. (PROSE: History 101) In fact, all LEGO models were significantly smaller than their real world equivalents. According to the Eighth Doctor, Toronto in the summer looked like "a giant LEGO set" from above the CN Tower. (PROSE: Trading Futures) Joseph similarly compared the skycrapers of New York City to LEGO buildings when atop the Empire State Building. (PROSE: Salvation)
The Savant, a great alien hacker of both computers and the human brain, enjoyed both eating LEGO as a snack, and bathing in it. Sarah Swan dubbed him "a hormone-secreting, Lego-obsessed Sesame Street monster". (PROSE: Blue Box)
Bernice Summerfield at some point did an archaeological dig in an Earth Legoland. (PROSE: Nobody's Children) She frequently had dreams of a bearded villain turning her into LEGO. (PROSE: Beige Planet Mars)
According to Toshiko Sato, the two halves of a quantum transducer fit together like LEGO. (TV: Ghost Machine) Incopolis' streets were filled with buildings too similar in design that they looked like "they'd all been assembled from the same Lego kit". (PROSE: Seeing I)
Behind the scenes Edit
Although LEGO initially could not produce Doctor Who sets to due licensing issues — and Character Options already making similar products — Lego Cuusoo, a website where users get to vote on potential future products, accepted DW submissions in February 2014. This means that there is no longer a licensing conflict. A Who project attained 10,000 supporters on 13 March 2014, and therefore entered the review phase.
Arthur Parsons of TT Games stated in 2011 that he and the team would love to add LEGO Doctor Who: The Video Game to the list of LEGO video games of their design, should LEGO begin manufacturing Doctor Who toys.
On 4 February 2015 LEGO Ideas announced that they will be creating a Doctor Who set and it will be released some time in 2015. Doctor Who characters will also appear in the videogame LEGO Dimensions with newly recorded audio from Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez and Nicholas Briggs and archive audio from William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, John Hurt, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith.
