Here is the recipe for the gingerbread Doctors I made along with close up pictures of the original batch.

350g plain flour

175g light brown sugar

100g butter

1 egg

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp ground ginger

4 tblsp golden syrup

I’m not so great at doing things step by step, I’m far to impatient for that, so I bung it all in a bow at once and mix it with my hands. Once you’ve got a nice dough, roll out it out so its roughly half a centimere thick and use a cookie cutter.

Bake for about 15 mins at Gas mark 5 (I think that’s about 190 degrees Celsius), check after 10 minutes.

All that’s left is to decorate them! But be warned spending 10 hours doing it can cause repetitive strain injury!!

So for the close ups of The Doctors:

Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee

Baker, Davison, Baker

McCoy, McGann, Eccleston

Tennant, Smith

For those of you who are wondering where Cushing, Shalka Doctor, Fatal Curse Doctors etc are I only do canonical gingerbread 😛

These were only my first attempt. For an updated version of them (in particular Colin Baker – complete with stripy cuffs, polka-dot scarf, and cat broach) see the previous post The Eleventh Hour Launch Party, London.
