      Start turning your house into the Whoniverse today!

      This is one of a range of cutouts based on various Doctor Who characters; there are also cutouts of various companions, the different incarnations of the Doctor and a number of different aliens that have featured in the show. You can even get a cutout of the TARDIS! My personal favourite is the Weeping Angel; moving this around your house is a perfect way to terrify family members or housemates - this is something that has provided me with hours of entertainment!

      They are quite widely available; you can buy them on ebay, on amazon, from various specialist websites and from comic book stores. They can often be pretty expensive, however, and while they provide great decoration and I love having cutouts around my flat, I would only recommend these for 'hardcore' Whovians or for young children (contrary to belief, these aren't necessarily the same group!)

      The 'Ood' cutout is 5 foot 11; the Ood are a recurring feature in 'New Who' being an alien slave race that the Doctor has encountered on a number of occasions. This cutout is a lot sturdier than I expected, and the Ood are one of my favourite creatures since Doctor Who was brought back in 2005 by Russell T Davies.

      In conclusion, I would recommend this for fans of the show, but I suggest you shop around so you don't end up getting ripped off!

      great Ood fun

      What could be more fun than waking up every morning and finding a lifesize Ood staring back at you. Maybe you are bored of the sight of your wife, maybe your husband just doesn't cut it anymore. Why not add some much needed spice to your life with the cardboard cutout Ood.

      The Ood feature in the show Doctor Who, they have now made several appearances and have helped the Doctor fight evil. They were even present for his last regeneration. There are a few Ood products on the market, including action figures and collector cards. The lifesize Ood now fulfills a much needed market gap.

      He stands at five foot eleven inches, so he would be taller than me a little. Weighing in at seven kg, he is not that heavy, so you could transport him from room to room. I am thinking he would wonderful in the corner of a bedroom or maybe in the front porch. Think of the look of delight on your neighbours' faces when they see this creature standing in the hallway.

      Mr Ood is wearing a splendid suit, so this looks like a processed Ood to me. His attire is smart and sexy and he could easily be mistaken for your husband from a distance. His face is similar to a squid, with tentacles which dangle over his chops. He is not overly attractive, but it's not all about his looks. Ood will never talk back at you and his enchanting expression will gaze longingly at you for hours on end.

      For thirty pounds he is quite dear, but then you must bear in mind how big he is. An essential purchase for Who fans and a wild idea for a birthday gift. Just think, you could buy several and line them up in your garden!
