Handmade Doctor Who Chess Set: Weeping Angel Jumps TARDIS

 |  |  |  |  |  September 11, 2012


I love Doctor Who, but I suck at chess. Even so, I want to buy this set just because it looks so amazing. However, I lack the financial resources to spend almost $1000 on a chess set, so I am just going to have to admire it from afar.


It’s not just made to be looked at. It’s made for playing. The wooden chess board wasn’t made from scratch. It was modified to look more Who-like. One cool feature is that it folds in half to hold all the pieces safely. Each piece is handmade using polymer clay, and the pieces are split into a good side and a bad side. Of course, The Doctor, River Song, Amy, Amelia and some TARDISes are on the good team, while The Dreamlord, Madam Kovarian, the headless monks and weeping angels are some the the bad guys. Just look at the detail in these pieces. Clearly, a lot of time went into creating this set.

If you want it, you better get it while you can. Priced at $949 (USD), it’s one-of-a-kind and the seller, Dutch artist Emmi Viser won’t be making another set. Check out more details on the set here.
