Doctor Who star is new hot potato

Doctor Who star Matt Smith will be ensuring the Daleks have had their chips after being turned into a Mr Potato Head figure.

The enduring classic children's toy has regenerated into a new version featuring the face of the actor - who bows out as The Doctor later this year.

The spud character has been given a sonic screwdriver, bow-tie and a fez in his latest mash-up as the 11th Doctor which manufacturers hope will be a collectible hit for fans.

Doctor Who celebrates its 50th anniversary later this year with a special edition of the BBC One show in November. Matt is to be succeeded by Peter Capaldi who will step into the role after the Christmas edition of the show.
