Whovians rejoice!

LEGO has announced Wednesday that it will produce the first ever “Doctor Who” set.

The block maker has been letting fans choose which themed sets it produces as part of its crowdsourced Ideas campaign (previously LEGO CUUSOO).

Anyone can submit a pitch that includes photos and videos of the design, and you need 10,000 supporters to vote for your idea in order for it to move on to the next stage. A review board will then choose which of the top designs will become a legit product.

Past winners have included “Ghostbusters”, a “Back to the Future” DeLorean, and a Minecraft set.

The “Doctor Who and Companions” set was one 6 finalists from an early 2014 grouping where there were actually 3 winners.

The pitch includes 1 or 2 Doctors, a TARDIS, an interior console, K9, a Dalek, 2 companions, a Weeping Angel and a Cyberman.

LEGO also announced that a Wall-E themed set will be produced a the winner from the most recent batch of 8 nominees.

Soon you might be able to ride around in a TARDIS or soar over 221B Baker Street in a giant ferris wheel.

BBC Worldwide has signed a deal with London Resort Company Holdings to feature characters from its shows in an amusement park that is expected to open in 2020.

This means themed rides and attractions featuring characters and elements from "Doctor Who," "Sherlock," and "Top Gear" among others.

It will "combine the glamour of Hollywood with the best of British culture," according to The Guardian.

The $3.14 billion London Paramount resort is being constructed in Kent and – in addition to the rides – there will be a water attraction, a 2,000-seat theatre and 5,000 hotel rooms.
