Between Doctor Who, 1D, Catching Fire, the new season of My Little Pony, the new Zelda game, Miley Cyrus’ birthday, and the Food Network Thanksgiving 2-Hour Live Special, there are a whole lot of fandoms that will be active this weekend.
As we’ve said before, to us, this Saturday is Fandom Day.
Whovians more than anyone, understand that time and space are infinite. If you’re a fan of any of these other things, a member of any other fandom, we think that that’s great.
We’ll be celebrating ‘The Day of the Doctor’. Starting with the preshow at 2.15pm ET on YouTube, moving to BBC America on TV at 2.30pm and at 2.50pm ET we’ll be watching the global simulcast.
Thank you SO SO SO SO much Doctor Who Tumblr! I was having a stressful day but then I got this in the mail! IT MADE ME SO HAPPY!!! You guys are wonderful!
minivinnie asked: What should I do? I have tickets to the Day of the Doctor screening on Monday, November 25th, but I also have BBC America to watch it on Saturday. Should I see it live with everyone else and just have a heighted experience of it in 3D on Monday OR should I lock myself in a room from Saturday to Monday trying to avoid spoilers to see it for the first time in theaters Monday?
We’re doing the “Watch Several Times on Saturday AND Then Again on Monday” option because why not?
As you may have noticed, we’ve been sending out Doctor Who 50th “party packs” to a few lucky Whovians who have posted their Doctor Who 50th Anniversary party plans to the #Doctor Who Global Celebration tag on Tumblr.
We wanted to send these out to everybody but the number of sparkly blue envelopes is finite while the number of Whovians is infinitely expanding (fact.)
And that’s when we realized that THE INTERNET was
probably Time Lord technology infinite!
Here you’ll find bingo to play while you’re watching 'Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor', recipes for om noms to make for your celebration, printable invites to send to your friends, decorations for cupcakes, popcorn holders, and more.
Best of all, most of the things in this pack were created by your fellow fans of Doctor Who.
You can grab the entire pack here (10.4MB zip file.)
You can grab the entire pack as individual files by clicking the links below. Some parts have multiple pages so make sure you keep track of them.
(We tried to keep the images at sizes that would suit most people’s computers, so make sure you’re viewing the images full sized before printing. If you want any of these bigger pop them into your fave photo editor and blow ‘em up!)
And let’s make this the best Doctor Who 50th Anniversary EVER!
Got my Doctor Who party pack today from the Doctor Who Tumblr and on what better day than my birthday!
Thank you, Doctor Who Tumblr adipose! You guys rock!
lait-de-rose asked: I'm actually worried about tumblr servers crashing down due to doctor who posts flood on the 23rd
Save The Day Indeed.
clomandhisdeafweasel asked: I think the TARDIS's Translation technology was malfunctioning for the last ask.
marielobos asked: Ghjjmmbdbfggjjvb
mcchicken-nuggets asked: So for the #savetheday tardis thing can we # from tumblr or is it still mainly for instagram and facebook and stuff
We think it’s because we
threatened joked that we wanted to flood the tag with dancing Barrowman gifs.
It’s quite possible that they took us seriously.
btw, if you haven’t visited the doctorwhosavetheday site, you really should. There’s video and fan art and stuff and it’s all pretty cool.
daftpadaleki asked: Do you guys have a "secret blog" called dwtumblrhere? I got an ask from it
Yep. If you ever get an ask from ‘dwtumblrhere’, it’s from us. Thanks for checking!
Oh you know… we’re just sitting here on a Sunday at the irl dashboard of the Doctor Who Tumblr (aka the BBC America office), putting together something special for the Doctor Who Global Celebration… no big.
PSA: If you ever get a Tumblr ask or fanmail from ‘dwtumblrhere’ it’s actually from us at the Doctor Who Tumblr.
So here’s proof. And a confession. In a single post. Presented by an Adipose. Which we made while watching TV in the big BBC America living room.
Ok. That should finally do it.
This is just a reminder of our reminder of the thing you should be reminded of.
So there’s a Facebook app that let’s you put your face into the Doctor Who title sequence and it is The Best Thing.
We even made our own intro (posted above.)
Doctor Who - starring You! Fans can now have their chance to star in the iconic Doctor Who title sequence, as BBC Worldwide unveil the #SaveTheDay – Who is Coming personalised video invite Facebook app.
Mirroring the way Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith’s name and face appear in the televised version of the opening credits, fans can now visit the Doctor Who Facebook page to digitally adapt the start of the show and share the result with friends!
