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.

Meet the Designer Behind Those ‘Doctor Who’ Movie Posters

Last year, in the preview for Season Seven, Doctor Who‘s producers announced that each of the episodes would pack the punch of a blockbuster movie. And in keeping with that aim, a dramatic, movie-style poster would be released for each installment. The campaign proved extremely popular, with fans enthusiastically collecting and dissecting each image for details and references. We spoke with Lee Binding, Doctor Who‘s talented graphic designer who helped bring these visions to life, about his sweet gig, the collaborative process with producers and the team behind the posters, and the single image that took three months to create.
What’s your history with Doctor Who as a fan?
Lee: I remember my mother calling me downstairs when I was six, yelling “Doctor Who‘s on! You like that!” and me thinking “Do I…?” but going downstairs anyway. She was right, you know.
Were you the kid who sits in the back of the class doodling in notebooks?
Lee: Yeah, actually I was. I was obsessed with the shape of the Police Box. When I first started, it was like little Amelia Pond’s rough oblong models, but you keep trying and eventually you get all the detail in there — the roof and the door flanges and stuff like that. I love that Police Box. It’s a beautiful shape, and I love what it represents: the start of the adventure. I’ve seen some fan artwork where they’ve put the TARDIS on a planet, and the door’s open with the light spilling out. That for me is just the most exciting image ever. Anything can happen!

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.

So we think we’re going to give away our signed poster from The Snowmen tomorrow…

No wait — we don’t think we’re going to do it. We know we’re going to do it.

UPDATE: the contest post is live!

So we’re going to give away a big poster from The Snowmen signed by Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Steven Moffat, and Caro Skinner tomorrow, Friday.

It’s our prized possession. If we were standing in the market at the Rings of Akhaten, it would be imprinted with the memory of the day they signed it.

We’re not sure what the contest is going to be exactly, but it will probably require you to do something nice for a Whovian friend you admire. The winner will get the poster and the friend will get a prize.

We’re still working out the details.

Expect a post around noon EDT tomorrow. Don’t worry about seeing it then as it won’t close until the 8pm EDT broadcast of Doctor Who on BBC America.
