First Doctor - Willam Hartnell

Second Doctor - Patrick Troughton

Third Doctor - Jon Pertwee

Fourth Doctor - Tom Baker

Fifth Doctor - Peter Davison

Sixth Doctor - Colin Baker

Seventh Doctor - Sylvester McCoy

Eighth Doctor - Paul McGann

Ninth Doctor - Christopher Eccleston

Tenth Doctor - David Tennant

Eleventh Doctor - Matt Smith

A huge thank-you to Justin Foo for taking the awesome photographs. For more of his work go to his blog


  1. I love these!!! I love amigurumi and I Iove Doctor Who so these guys are just perfect! Looking at these really cheered me up, thanks. :-)

  2. That is simply amazing. Bravo!

  3. Is it at all possible to commission one or two of these? I'll message you on ravelry about it. They look like a lot of work! They're lovely.

  4. Wow! Fabulous. But you forgot the Peter Cushing Doctor from the movies. ;)

  5. Wow, this is awesome!
    Can we have a shot of all eleven together so I can set it as my wallpaper?

  6. Any chance you are selling the patterns? I have a friend who would love these.

  7. Even if you aren't selling patterns (which would be amazing!), any chance you could give aspiring dr. who crocheters a few hints to get started?

  8. Hi, I'm trying to crochet a tenth doctor like the one you have here for one of my friends for her birthday (she linked me to this page and requested it specifically) and I was wondering: how exactly do you make such great hair?

    I've been crocheting for a while now but I've never been able to make something that looks that good. Would it be possible for you to type up a short explanation on how you do it? I would be very grateful.

  9. Elementoid, The Tenth Doctor Hair has two parts, the sticking up bit at the front and the flat hair at the back. Starting at the front, I use a yarn needle to sew in loops of yarn. Get the loops close together so you can't see the skull colour showing through. The loops will look like the curly hair on the 5, 6 and 7 dolls. After a few rows of loops, stitch the flat hair over the rest of the head. (Don't forget to do the sideburns.) Once the head is covered I get some sharp scissors and cut the loops at the front. This makes the yarn stick up like spiky hair. Then it's just a quick trim to get the style right.

    Hope the project goes well. I'm sure your friend will love it.

  10. These are too cute for words!! Each Doctor is so recognizable, too--amazing!

  11. Hi,
    Are these patterns going to be released? I would like to purchase the pattern for the 11th doctor as my daughter adores him.

  12. Yeah, double what Natasha said! I LOVE the 11th doctor! If you're going to allow at least 1 free pattern or put up some, PLEASE make sure to put up eleven's!

  13. LOVE these, especially the little details you did to make each one uniquely THEM, from 4's scarf, 5's celery, 6's question mark lapels (and do I spot a tiny French knit "cat pin" on his coat?) to 10's spiky hair and the TINY FEZ!!! Too adorable!

  14. And you said I'd forget your blog name ;) Found you! And these are absolutely brilliant. Love them! I'm surprised the Dalek let anything beat him, too.

  15. My goodness these are amazing i wish i was that amazing!!!!! YouHAVE to release the patterns. I will beg!!!!!!

  16. I would suspect that, as in the past with some other knit and crocheted Dr. Who items, releasing patterns of copyrighted characters and/or selling finished ones would be an issue with the BBC. Get their permission first if you're considering this. GREAT work!

  17. I am working on the 11th doctor as a valentine's day gift for my husband. I have most of it put together, but I am really struggling on the hair. Can you point me to a tutorial or give me a few quick tips? These are amazing! Thanks.
