“Given Barbie’s celebration of women who have made history, as well as iconic characters from some of the best-loved movies and shows, we felt it was a great opportunity to work with Mattel to create a doll based on the Thirteenth Doctor,” BBC Studios’ creative director David Wilson Nunn said in a statement.
