The Eleventh Hour debuted two years ago tomorrow! Let’s celebrate by making tomorrow (April 3) Fish Fingers and Custard Day!

The Eleventh Doctor made his debut in The Eleventh Hour two years ago on April 3, 2010.

Doctor Who Tumblr and Doctor Who Facebook Page are going to celebrate together by declaring the day Fish Fingers and Custard Day! #fishcustard

Between today and tomorrow: take a picture of yourself eating fish fingers and custard. Submit it as a photo reply to this post. Okay, this next part is FOR TUMBLR USERS ONLY: we’re going to pick two photo replies at random to win Doctor Who Series 5 on DVD or Blu-ray and two more photo replies to win River Song’s (blank) Journal all courtesy of the upstanding citizens at BBCAmericaShop!

Doctor Who Facebook is going to collect all of them and mush them up into a photo and video gallery of Whovians eating fish fingers and custard worldwide.

If you want to submit a video, post it as a response to this video on the BBC YouTube page.

If you submit it as a picture on Twitter, use hashtag #fishcustard

If you don’t know how to make fish fingers and custard, here’s our very own recipe having been handed down from our grandmother’s grandmother:

  1. Buy some fish fingers.
  2. Buy some custard.
  3. Eat the fish fingers and custard.

And we’re sorry. We’re so so sorry, but again — the Tumblr giveaway is only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States (including the District of Columbia.)

But hey, that’s just the contest part. You can still participate by posting a picture!

Read all of the official terms and conditions here.

If you win and you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign for you.
