Happy whovian Wednesday from eleven and river!
Hey! Lookie here! It’s Whovian Wednesday, and my mommy (are you my mummy?) gave me this as an early birthday present so I can wear it on the 23rd! Woot woot, only a few more days til I can celebrate with my friends!
Thanks for the big blue envelope, Adipose! Here I’ve gone against what everyone has told me and did an ‘unboxing’ vid.
Just got this in the mail! Thanks again Doctor Who tumblr!
YAY! Thanks again to our friends at HarperCollins for being awesome and making this beautiful book.
P.S You can purchase it here: http://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Vault-Treasures-First/dp/0062280635
Look me in the eye and tell me you wouldn’t have a photoshoot as well. (also, guess what I’ll be wearing November 23?)
Don’t get too dizzy! And watch out for that lightning!
bleachphantom asked: What should my senior quote be? I wanted it be doctor who related. Any ideas?

2. Visit an iconic landmark
Many of the capital’s iconic landmarks have taken centre stage in recent times. When the Doctor met Shakespeare, they filmed inside Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Today, the Globe Exhibition and Tour gives visitors an opportunity to channel their inner David Tennant and learn more about this unique building and its most famous playwright.
Even the most upmarket addresses in London have featured in Doctor Who. Buckingham Palace narrowly missed being hit by the Spaceship Titanic in the 2007 Christmas special Voyage of the Damned, while the Slitheen infiltrated 10 Downing Street in 2005 episode, Aliens of London.

Such a good question that we thought we’d pose it to the fandom.
How would you decorate your Whovian graduation cap?
Let theroyalnonesuch know through your reblog.
In fangirl talk, yes. I have died countless times. In normal person talk, this is the story of how I became a Whovian.
I first discovered Doctor Who back in 2009 when Charm City Cakes made a Dalek cake! Charm City Cakes had a show on Food Network called Ace of Cakes and that was like MY show. I would watch every new episode as it aired and that one night, they were talking about the Dalek cake. Some of the cake decorators were Whovians, and they were talking about how amazing Doctor Who was and I was like hmm.. Doctor Who. Sounds like such a weird concept, but sounds pretty cool! Also, that year, I started watching Charlie! And he talks about Doctor Who a LOT. The only problem was, I didn’t know where to watch it. It wasn’t until last year, in my first year of college, that I finally got around to watching Doctor Who. My neighbor, Jasmine, had a huge poster of Matt Smith and I was like. DUDE. You’re a Whovian. And then she discovered that I was not a Whovian (yet!), but she was willing to let me use her Netflix account and watch every New Who episode with me and THAT is the story of how I became a Whovian.
The Tenth Doctor parachutes out of the TARDIS with The Queen and lights the flame at the Olympics. <- Okay, maybe that was our headcanon.
Over the past two months we’ve gotten more messages from new fans of Doctor Who than anything else. Many of them have said that they started watching Doctor Who just because of the fandom on Tumblr.
This is AWESOME.

Dear Doctor Who,
I would like to personally thank you. For many reasons really but for first and foremost giving me the opportunity to meet my girlfriend. We met at the filming in NYC and if that filming hadn’t happened, well then I would not have an exceptionally amazing girl in my life now. Whether you guys know it or not, you help change many peoples lives. So here’s to you. Cheers
