silence_frontI have to say while a bit of a retread of the Weeping Angels, I’m a big fan of the Silence.They are just creepy enough to stick with you.

Once again I let Mrs. Nerd pick a Doctor Who Titans box and it paid off. She has an uncanny knack for this blind packed stuff. On the box, the character is noted as “Silent”. I always thought they were called “The Silence” but I could be wrong their.

Of course, with this series of figures, most of the differences are in the head. And this one is pretty cool. It’s stylized but recognizable. The skull/alien look is screams Silence. Honestly, I think the lack of a mouth is the most disturbing part of their design.

Their are three colors used to paint the eyes. Combined they’ve give a bit of depth. Again though, a little more contrast in the colors would have helped make them pop just a tiny bit more.

Overall:

I have no complaints other than the contrast issues. Those aren’t really show stoppers in my opinion. I’m just glad to have a tiny cute version of one of my favorite Doctor Who adversaries on my desk!

PS: Like the Weeping Angel sticker he’s posing with? You can get your own here and support TVFT and Mrs Nerd!
