The advetisement of the US 10th Doctor with Adpose notes its a brown variant. It seems people who have this set have a blue Doctor variant, or is that just the UK market?
Think you've got a bit mixed up:

The US 10th Doctor with Adipose single release has a brown suit with the EoT glasses head.

Deborah mentioned a B&M set from a few years back which she thought came with the same figure, but it in fact came with a blue suit EoT glasses head figure, which also got a US single release.

Ok looking at this:

and this which is potentially this item:

Variant collectors could possibly breathe a sigh of relief as this could be a blue suit figure after all.

The B&M set/single release or the US release that i've just linked with the adipose? I think we got a bit muddled in the prior conversation.

Oof. That’s very blue.
Al Dewar, if you are reading this, please give me a job/ all variants of all figures you have ever produced (delete as applicable).

You would have to take the screws off the base and see what its like under there. Watch for the door springs which will most likely ping off when you open it, so do it slowly. There may be some disassembly videos on youtube. If you're stuck attach some photos, I should be able to assist.
