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!

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.

So we had a bit of fun with our Doctor Who Tumblr Tracked Tags Video today….

We threw a tag in there that didn’t make any sense: ‘secretwhoviantag

If you were curious and looked for it, you would have found a post on our newly created (and soon to be deleted) secretwhogiveawayblog.

And if you were among the first five Whovians to follow the instructions,  you would have won a little something (courtesy of BBCAmericaShop.)

We’ll be doing more of these in the near future so follow the Doctor Who, Orphan Black, and BBC America blogs for the next one (it may pop up on any one.)

And keep being clever.

Ok. It’s time for another holiday giveaway courtesy of Doctor Who Tumblr and BBCAmericaShop!

The last three giveaways were fun — first you made fanart, then you wore holiday sweaters, then you went on a scavenger huntnow we want you to do something nice…

BBCAmericaShop has these exclusive videos of Matt and Karen answering three holiday questions:

  • What is your fondest holiday memory?
  • What is the best holiday gift you’ve received?
  • What is the best holiday gift you’ve ever given?

Matt was excited about giving his dad a watch.

Karen was excited about giving her friend nostril hair trimmers.

We want to know what are you going to do to create a ‘fondest holiday memory’ for a friend or family or neighbor this year?

Will you spend time with a friend you haven’t seen in a while? Cook Christmas breakfast for a parent? Give your little brother or sister a big box of Hanukkah gelt chocolates? Buy someone a combination wristwatch + nostril hair trimmers?

Whatever it is, share it and it just might win you something awesome!

  • Create a post telling us how you’re going to create a fondest holiday memory for someone you love.

  • Tag it doctor+who+tumblr+fondest+holiday+memory

We will pick one winner at random to win limited edition official Doctor Who TARDIS hoodie!

This is what it looks like:

This is what it would look like on you if it were a t-shirt with the logo on the front and you were Matt Smith:

And this is what we would look like if we were in the same room as you and the above were true:

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