Last week we asked everyone to write some poetry using the hastag #DW Poetry for a chance to win a copy of Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Notebooks from our friends at Harper Collins. We received so many spectacular submissions. 

There were sonnets written in iambic pentameter, haikus, poems that rhymed, and some free verse poems, all of which are definitely worth a read. 
We randomly selected 10 entries to win and they are: 
Relevantmoose
Tardis-scooter
Drldeboer
Lovejuj
Vigilanter
Whole-armies-turn-and-run
Velociraptor-with-an-obsession
Madmanwithacloud
Ex-professo
Allonsy-to-mcdonalds

Congrats everyone, and thanks to all who participated! We’ll be sending out the prizes by the end of the week.
Don’t forget that if you weren’t one of these lucky winners, you can still get your own copy of the book right here.

Being able to travel thorough all of time and space, The Doctor’s interacted with many real-life historical figures. From meeting Richard Nixon to fighting a Vespiform with Agatha Christie, he’s made a lot of important and famous friends.
But how has The Doctor affected their lives? How have these interactions shaped history without anyone even realizing it? Soon, we can get a peek at just one example with Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Notebooks. 

Newly discovered entries and drawings in William Shakespeare’s journals reveal for the first time the astounding relationship between the great Bard and the Doctor.
Since his first adventure in 1963, the Doctor has enjoyed many encounters with William Shakespeare. Now, BBC Books has rediscovered notebooks, long thought lost, compiled by the Bard in which he divulges the influential role the Doctor played in his creative life. Here are the original notes for Hamlet, including a very different appearance by the ghost; early versions of great lines (“To reverse or not to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow”); the true story of how the faeries of A Midsummer Night’s Dream were first imagined; stage directions for plays adjusted to remove references to a mysterious blue box; and much, much more.

Lucky for us, our friends at Harper Collins were nice enough to give us 10 copies to give away to 10 lucky Whovians.
In honor of Shakespeare’s impressive portfolio (approximately 4 poems, 38 plays, and 154 sonnets that we know of,) you can have a chance at winning a copy of Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Notebooks by posting your own Doctor Who-related poem/haiku/limerick/etc.
And it’s okay if you’re not the best at writing poems, because it can be as simple as:

Roses are red, the TARDIS is blue.This example is bad, how about a haiku? 

Sorry
Post yours in whatever format you’d like (text, recited in a video or audio post, drawn into a piece of fanart, etc.) using the hashtag #DW Poetry and we’ll randomly select 10 entries to win next week. We’ll be reblogging our favorites throughout the weekend, and the deadline is Monday, July 14th at 10AM EST. Good luck! 
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.) BBC America’s full terms and conditions can be found here.
(PS, you can always get your own copy right here if you’d like)

With a show that’s been around for over 50 years, there’s a LOT to be said about Doctor Who…literally. The Doctor talks a lot, and sometimes we just can’t get him to stop.

Our friends at Harper Collins have given us some copies of a new book called The Official Quotable Doctor Who: Wise Words from Across Space and Time, in which a few Whovians (who must also be very good listeners) went back through all fifty years of Doctor Who and picked some of the best quotes from The Doctor and all of his friends (and enemies.)

image

*We do not suggest using this book as an actual weapon please do not hit people with it

We’re going to give away 8 copies of the book to some lucky Whovians! All you have to do to enter is take your favorite Doctor Who quote and interpret it in whichever way you want (you can also just buy the book here).

You can make gifs of your favorite moment, use your artistic skills to insert a quote into a #DWedit or a piece of fanart, take a picture of yourself cosplaying a character from the show saying your favorite line, or even just make a text post quoting a line you relate to the most. Really, you can do anything you like!

Make a post using the hashtag #Quotable Doctor Who to be sure you’re entered. We’ll gather all of the entries by Monday, May 19th at 12PM EST, and randomly select the 8 lucky winners. 

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.)

In case you missed it, we’re having a contest!

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!
