Dr Who fans will find nothing not to like about these cute adaptations of their hero(es) into Mr Men form.

Sure the likenesses are flimsy at the best of times – especially of The Doctor’s companions (coloured blobs, mostly), and there are obvious continuity issues between the established series and these whimsical little stories – but let’s be grown up and not ultra OCD here: these are whimsical little stories that kids will love as a gateway into Dr Who, and established adult fans should view as a bit of fun and nothing more.

So what if Dale the Dalek has a faulty energy ray? Dr Fourth still never travels without jelly babies. We still get to have adventures with Cyber(Mister)men, Weeping Angels, Silurians and Sea Devils, Missy and more – and it’s all great rollicking, innocent fun.
