See some of the Doctor Who fan art the BBC America office has been making behind-the-scenes to celebrate Doctor Who Week.

We’ve been sending out so many Whovian party packs recently we were wondering if the universe was going to send us something in return, and LOOK WHAT MATERIALIZED AT THE BBC AMERICA OFFICE TODAY! A TARDIS, specifically the very first TARDIS Matt Smith used as the Eleventh Doctor!!!!!!!

We will treasure it dearly and promise not to use it to fast forward to November 23rd or use it to get to work on time when we oversleep. 

FYI: 4 Days….

doctorwho: we thought there should really be a pre-show that would be on tv on Saturday before the simulcast...

Hey those guise at BBC America are having a Doctor Who marathon (its on right now) leading up to The Day of The Doctor and that’s pretty cool, but then we thought, “There should really be a pre-show that would be on TV on Saturday before the simulcast”, but it should also be on YouTube and we’d probably want someone like, we don’t know, the Nerdist to make it.

But then there would have to be a Whovian from the internet like Veronica Belmont host it and then we’d want YouTubers as guests and instead of talking about themselves they’d be looking at Tumblr posts and Instagrams and replying to Twitter tweets and Vine vines by other Whovians celebrating all around the world and we’d ask viewers to do a fan challenge and we’d all have a big party there to celebrate The Day of the Doctor.

Doesn’t that sound like a good idea?

Cool. Let’s do it. 

Here’s a press release.
