Woman crochets all 11 Dr Whos
A Texan woman has made all eleven Dr Whos - from crochet.
Nimble-fingered Allison Hoffman used her impressive hook skills to fashion all of the timelords.
The 35-year-old, from Austin, had been asked to supply the ultimate sci-fi soft toy present for a geeky husband.
"I made the dolls for a woman that wanted to give her husband a Christmas present that would blow him away," she said.
"He is a huge Dr Who fan and she knew he'd love these toys. He's actually building a custom cabinet to display them now!
"Before taking on this project I had only seen the newer Who and not very many episodes, but now I feel like I know all of these people personally!
"I've done a ton of research on them and would easily consider myself a Whovian at this point.
"My favourite to make was the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker. I loved making that scarf! I'd love to meet any of them in person and give them their own likeness."
Ms Hoffman took up crotchet as a hobby but soon found her skills were in demand and started her own business, CraftyisCool, five years ago.
