Last week we asked the question “What do you think the Twelfth Doctor’s kidneys look like?” using the hashtag #Twelfth Doctor Kidneys. The creativity in everyone’s responses was overwhelming! People made gifs, text posts, colored our template in on their computer, printed it out and colored it by hand or drew it themselves; and every time the end result was great (and oftentimes, hilarious). We randomly selected 10 entries to win a copy of Doctor Who: The Doctor’s Lives and Times from our friends at Harper Collins, and here they are:allhailfrobishersandshoesandthebadwolftheconsultingamateurblack-eyed-winchesterswiggityswollyitshannahandmollygeronimo-into-the-vortextwerkifersome-favourite-thingswhole-armies-turn-and-runmarshallchafinCongrats!

Here are a few inserts from a new Doctor Who book, Doctor Who: The Doctor’s Lives and Times which comes out today, January 7th 2014. 

This is the story of an impossible life of a man who borrowed a spaceship, travelled through time and continually saved the universe as told by the Doctor’s friends, by his enemies, and by the man himself. Letters, journals, trial records, secret government files and the occasional bit of tabloid journalism reveal the never-before-told story of Gallifrey’s last Time Lord.

Our friends at Harper Collins have given us 10 copies to give away on the Tumblr. (Of course if you want to, you can just buy it here.)

On the Doctor Who Tumblr, we’re celebrating a new year, a new Doctor and new kidneys. We want to know what you think the Twelfth Doctor’s kidneys look like. Your post can be text or art or a drawing or you can even create gifs with your webcam. We’re posting a simple drawing of kidneys here to get you started.

Make sure you tag your posts with #Twelfth Doctor Kidneys to enter and be in with a chance to win.

We’ll gather the entries by 7AM EST tomorrow morning (January 8th), and pick 10 winners at random.

And we’re so so sorry to people outside of the Fifty States, but this giveaway is only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States (including the District of Columbia.)

Reblogging for anyone who didn’t see it earlier. Even if you’re not participating, check out the #Twelfth Doctor Kidneys hashtag; there are some great (and funny!) entries so far.

It’s Whovian Wednesday which made us so excited that we had to try assembling a cabinet in anticipation of all the new Doctor Who stuff we’re expecting to get for Christmas, Last Night of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice and Festivus this year (Adipose come from a big family) and that’s when we realized that we couldn’t actually make a cabinet because we didn’t have tools (and stubby little Adipose hands)…

No, Rory, we ca— OH YES WE CAN!!! We have this amazing sonic screwdriver app to sonic it with!!! GOOD THINKING RORY!!!

In fact, we have eleven download codes for it so we’re going to keep one for ourselves for our cabinetmaking and we’re going to give away the other 10 Sonic Screwdriver app download codes in a random giveaway thing!

Here’s how this will work:
We want to know what would you do if you had a real sonic screwdriver? Post your answer to your blog and tag your post #If I Had A Sonic.
Your post can be text or art or a drawing or even that crazy “create gifs with your webcam!” thing HelloFromTumblr keeps telling us about.

For the rest of the world, #Whovian Wednesday is a global thing because it just is no matter what the legal people tell us so just do the thing.

Entires are CLOSED for the Win-Matt-Smith’s-Bart-Simpson-Mask-in-the-Doctor-Who-Tumblr-#Crossover-Cosplay-Contest…contest.

Soon one of you will be face-to-face (by proxy) with Matt Smith’s face, and that’s totally NOT weird because Matt Smith said so sorta.



We saw many entries over the past few days and want to thank all of our Sailor-Moon-Despicable-Me-Futurama-Green-Lantern-Jack-Skellington-Doctor-Who fans for entering.

A winner will be announced TOMORROW so thank you for indulging us stay tuned!

Win Matt Smith’s Bart Simpson Mask in the Doctor Who Tumblr #Crossover Cosplay Contest.

So after a crazy wonderful day filled with cinema screening posts, we thought we’d follow it up with something kind of fun.

At the end of San Diego Comic Con we asked Matt Smith if we could have his Bart Simpson mask.

He said yeah. And we said, “uh, yeah, that’s cool” as if we were actually somehow cool even though inside we were all like,

So we brought it back to Doctor Who Tumblr HQ where we do nothing but lounge around in our hammocks all day…

and practice our fabulous hair tosses…

… and decided that we would do a thing:

We’re going to give away the actual Bart Simpson mask that Matt Smith wore to walk the floor at Comic Con!

Here’s how this is going to work…

To win this beautiful latex artifact, come up with an idea for a Whollowmeme costume that crosses over Doctor Who with another fandom. (Get it? Because Eleven wore a Simpsons mask. It’s… never mind.)

Lisa Simpson x Amy Pond? Orphan Black x Donna Noble? The Master x Severus Snape? Seventh Doctor x Walter White? K-9 x Jake The Dog? Mickey Smith x Jake The Dog? Clara x Jake The Dog?

And we want you to do more than just post two character names — post your crossover cosplay idea in whatever way seems natural to you: drawing, gifs, written description, a photo of your actual costume. Post it to your blog and tag it Doctor Who Crossover Cosplay.

We’ll collect all of the entries off of that tag and choose a winner at random to win Matt Smith’s Bart Simpson mask(!)

And we’re sorry. We’re so so sorry, non-America, but this giveaway 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.

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

The giveaway ends at 8pm EST Monday, October 28th!

Happy Crossover Cosplaying!! Good luck!

Win a TARDIS speaker from the Doctor Who Facebook Page.

The Doctor Who Facebook Page has a contest where you can win the TARDIS speaker system we posted about recently:

The TARDIS speaker has landed and brings your sounds to life through wireless, Bluetooth technology!

We have one (RRP: £150) to give away to one lucky winner who can answer the following 5 sound related Who questions.

This competition closes at 23:59 BST on Sunday 2nd June 2013 and is only open to UK and US residents aged 18 years or over. See our full Terms & Conditions (available on the “Rules” tab at the top of the app) for details.

We get asked this question a lot and we always answer it privately but today we thought we’d make this one public.The reason why we don’t do international giveaways isn’t because we don’t want to but because we’re not allowed to.Personal Tumblrs do international giveaways all the time.  That’s because they’re, well, personal. They can do whatever they want (including not following through on their promise of giving something away) and they will most likely not get into legal trouble for doing so.The Doctor Who Tumblr is an official blog which means that we’re bound to the rules of the BBC. In turn, the BBC is bound to the laws of the territories that it operates in.  As a result, coming up with a set of rules for contests and giveaways that doesn’t fall foul of the laws and regulations of every single participating country can be near impossible.That is why we spend more time doing things like Sonic Sunday, Fan Art Friday, 30 Days of DW memes, and the current Poster Project. These are things that anyone and everyone can participate in because it doesn’t involve “prizes.” And to be honest, we prefer doing these things anyway because they involve and honor Whovians from around the world and that’s a lot more fun.But this doesn’t mean that we’re not going to try to do a multi-country giveaway. The folks behind the Doctor Who Facebook Page, BBC America, Anglophenia, and this blog have all gotten together to try to solve this problem. While it won’t be tomorrow, please know that we know why international giveaways would be cool and that we we’re actively trying to make this a reality.

Congrats to mangostarburst for winning our autographed poster from Doctor Who: The Snowmen!

Congrats to mangostarburst for winning our autographed poster from Doctor Who: The Snowmen!

So we held a contest this past weekend to give away the centerpiece of the Doctor Who Tumblr office at BBC America: our poster from ‘The Snowmen’ autographed by Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Steven Moffat, and Caro Skinner.

To enter, you had to go out and do something nice for somebody. Nothing about ‘Doctor Who,’ nothing about following or promoing our blog, just something… nice.

After collecting hundreds of posts on Friday and Saturday, the winning post was chosen at random and we finally got confirmation yesterday!

mangostarburst:

Last weekend during my volunteer at the hospital, I was going through the hospital rooms giving out the patient menus for the next day. I got to this one room and inside was this elderly lady. She looked like she was struggling to open something. 

Turns out she was trying to open her fancy lipstick container but couldn’t because she was shaking so badly. So I opened her lipstick and started to talk with her. 

She was so excited because her “one true love” was going to visit her. But she was also so nervous because they couldn’t be together for reasons she did not want to say. Not to mention she was a shaking mess in her hospital bed. 

So I just sat next to her and talked to her for a good 30 minutes before I was called back to the volunteer lounge. But the lady said I was the only person to talk and listen to her that intently. This is why I love volunteering so much¬ making a difference while learning more about the world. ^-^

So congrats, mangostarburst!

While we’re sad to see our poster go, we’re glad it’ll have a home.
