The Editor

The Doctor Who episode "The Long Game" isn't really anyone's favorite. It's certainly not anything that will go down as a classic, even the writer/Executive producer admits that. But it does have one thing going for it, Simon Pegg as the Editor. He's evil and played by Simon Pegg, which is pretty much all you need to know if you want the action figure. Because that means this is essentially an EVIL SIMON PEGG action figure, and on that ground, I want it. So I bought it.

The head seems like its a little small for the body, just slightly out of scale. But the likeness of that head is close enough that if you told someone that it was Simon Pegg they'd look at it and nod.

It sort of depends on how you look at him. In the right light the likeness is incredible close. Otherwise its something that bears an incredible resemblence. But whatever, it's an evil Simon Pegg action figure.


  1. I actually quite liked The Long Game - it reminded me of an old school story, kind of like The Happiness Patrol (which is another one people don't seem to like that much!)

  2. Is that the waxy plastic version? A thankfully very short lived experiment by Character Options. They did release a painted version as a running change which for me shows off the Simon Pegg sculpt much more.

  3. i liked that episode
