Doctor who shirt that my mom got me #2!
I forgot to tell you guys i found a shop in quincy market that had a bunch of DW stuff! I got this hat and a shirt with the logo and a bunch of tally marks on it. My friend got an exploding TARDIS shirt. It was amazing. Sorry i look so creepy in the photo, i was trying to show the detail in it.
This is what I will be doing with my free day. And probably all week. Living the life, right here. (‘:
Craig Ferguson explains what a Dalek is (~)
Look what I’ve got :D I’m The doctors companion which is funny because I’m doing a training to be a nurse, so it’s true ;D
Tumblr staff (or a hacker *cough*) should totally make a huge animation of the TARDIS flying across your tumblr screen for the 50th (i.e. when you log on)

We’re sending a TARDIS into space!
November 23, 2013 is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and we’re extremely excited. So excited, in fact, that we almost don’t know what to do… almost. Actually, we know exactly what to do: We’ve built a replica TARDIS and we’re sending it into orbit. Yes, really! We’re not talking about sticking a little, plastic TARDIS on top of a model rocket and shooting it really high into the sky (although that would be wicked cool). And we’re not going to tie a TARDIS to a weather balloon (which, by the way would also be pretty flippin’ awesome). No, we’re putting a TARDIS into the payload bay of a real, actual, honest-to-goodness, rocket, and launching it into a Low Earth Orbit.
Low Earth Orbit is where satellites need to be to actually “orbit” the Earth, not just fall back down. So, we’re talking about sending this thing, really, really, high… space high. The international space station is in Low Earth Orbit. Seriously. The guys on the International Space Station will be able to look out their windows and say: “Check out that police call box floating by.”
Ever since the release of these amazing Dalek cups:
… we, the adipose of the Doctor Who Tumblr, have had a dream to create THE GREATEST TITLE FOR A TUMBLR CONTEST IN ALL OF TIME AND SPACE.
Today we get to realize our dream with…
The Doctor Who Tumblr Tumbler Tumblr Contest.
We’ve been given a dozen Doctor Who Dalek and TARDIS cups to give away courtesy of the fine folks at BBCAmericaShop.
We want you to make your own homemade Dalek and TARDIS fan art. Make it using household items, drawing and painting, arts and crafts, whatever. In exchange, we’re going to reblog our favs and give away Doctor Who tumblers to users on Tumblr via the Doctor Who Tumblr.
This, we believe, will be the crowning title-related achievement of this blog.
Let us explain via this exciting powerpoint presentation:
So enough about the title. Here’s what to do:
1. Make your own Dalek or TARDIS. It can be physical or digital. Just be creative. And have fun.
3. We will pick twelve (12) entries at random to receive a TARDIS or Dalek tumbler courtesy BBCAmericaShop.
Because of reasons beyond our control, the contest portion is only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States including the District of Columbia. Read all of the official terms and conditions here.
However, like all of our “contests”, the best part is browsing the tag and seeing everybody else’s work. Anybody and everybody can make their own Dalek or TARDIS for the tag as we’ll be reblogging some of our favorites no matter where they’re made.
It all starts today, now, Saturday, June 1. You have until next Saturday, June 8 at midnight Pacific Time to post your entry.
WE’RE SO EXCITED TO SEE YOUR ENTRIES!!!
When I was a kid, I used to run home from school to watch my favorite TV shows. One of them, was this British television program that ran on WTTW, (the PBS station in Chicago). It was a quirky science fiction show about a time traveller called the Doctor. He and his companions whisked around space and time in a blue phone booth looking thing called a Police Box.
The year was 1980. The show was called Doctor Who, and I, was hooked.
The Doctor at that time was played by an actor named Tom Baker, who wore a ridiculously long scarf. I decided I needed a long scarf too. I wrote a letter to some long forgotten address I obtained, and received a knitting pattern for the scarf. I somehow talked my grandmother into making one for me. It was awesome. Even though I was ridiculed mercilessly by my peers for wearing it, my love for the 4th Doctor and his adventures never diminished.
Well, it just so happens that 2013 is the 50th year anniversary of Doctor Who. It’s the longest running science fiction television series in the world.
This is my homage to those days from my youth. Days that were filled with countless hours spent watching Doctor Who and pretending that I too, could travel in space and time.
Just an update on the Doctor Who Tumblr Asked For My Autograph poster project…
We’ve received close to 10,000 of your autographs which is awesome.
We now have to turn all of those images into a collage which is a different kind of awesome.
We’re hoping to have it together and ready to go for something we’re doing mid-July. More updates to come.
Also: according to you, on a scale of 1 to 10 the awesomeness of the word ‘Raxacoricofallapatorius’ is valued at 9.73.
