Doctor Who Gallifreyan Calendar Limited Edition

Doctor Who Gallifreyan Calendar Limited Edition

It’s pretty easy to get a calendar, but it’s not as much fun. You can have any variety of selection in calendars, but do you think you have one that works from 1600 through 9999 AD? Not even an operating system (unless it was designed for it) can keep a calendar up to several millennia. That’s what’s on display and for sale here – a Doctor Who Gallifreyan Calendar Limited Edition Poster.

It comes in 24×36 inches and was drawn by the artist known as Russell Walks. It also shows up in a poster tube to prevent the poster from being horribly creased while it’s being delivered to you. For a poster that’ll last millennia, that’s pretty important. It’s officially licensed merchandise, so you know that the people who work hard on what they draw and create will be rewarded from your purchase.

The poster also comes full of images, quotes and people from all walks of life within the Doctor Who Universe. That’s great since it would be boring if it was just numbers in a basic spreadsheet like some calendars look like. If you’re wondering what the main graphic on the calendar poster is, it’s a view of the night time sky at the South Pole on the night Doctor Who had premiered on television. It’s a random bit of trivia that not every Doctor Who fan knows, but you will.

Good for any date between 1600 and 9999 A.D. The poster also doubles as a Galactic Star Chart so when you’re done figuring out which day of the week or year it is in your life, you can also learn about different stars within the galaxy, which is great for astronomy fans.

As a whole, you’ll have some fun with this poster, and even if you don’t want to use it as a calendar, it makes for a cool, limited poster that won’t get boring to look at for any Doctor Who fan.

The life of the 11th Doctor – Matt Smith

matt smith

For Doctor Who fans, the yearly Christmas special is usually a bittersweet time. Usually the writers come up with something special each year, but also, more often than not the Christmas special is the time we see one actor’s tenure as the Doctor come to an end and they use the Christmas special as a way to bring in the new incarnation of the Doctor. So, when Matt Smith announced he was done as The Doctor, and the BBC snuck glimpses of the new actor playing the Doctor, most fans assumed the Christmas Special was the end of Matt Smith’s time…and they were right. Following the 50-year anniversary special, we knew the Doctor was going through a change, so they used the Christmas special as a way to wrap up some of this incarnation’s lingering threads and retire Matt Smith’s version.

Matt Smith started as a controversial pick for the doctor. At 26 when he took on the role he was also the youngest actor playing the character, a concern expressed by Piers Wenger, head of BBC Wales, who none-the-less said that Matt Smith was “more than capable for the role.” After his premier in “The Eleventh Hour” the controversy heated up, as it always does, among Doctor Who fans. Matt Smith brought a sort of manic energy and running commentary, along with a few running gags regarding his headwear to the show that some audience members found endearing, but others found particularly grating. Moffit described Smith’s portrayal of the Doctor as “an old man in a young man’s body” and in many cases his portrayal showed a more intense need to run from his history involving Gallifrey’s destruction. Other sources praised his performance though, Martin Anderson of Shadowlocked described him as the best redesign of the Doctor since Tom Baker’s performance.

Matt Smith’s Doctor continued the growing tradition that David Tennent’s version started, he always had one companion close by, but he had a circle of friends and support as anchor for his adventures, opposed to the more solitary companions of earlier doctors. Amy Pond and Rory brought relationship chemistry to the show and allowed certain running jokes and plotlines not possible with earlier solitary companions. Amy Pond’s initial plot line, following the various cracks throughout the universe leading up to the Doctor’s first sacrifice to the Pandoricum brought Rory in and showed that the Doctor can have a companion that also has some kind of life outside of their relationship with the Doctor. That Rory and Amy’s relationship eventually resulted in River Song, their daughter, and the Doctor’s eventual wife, brought several plot threads full circle after Song’s introduction to Tennent’s 10th incarnation. Amy and Rory’s exit in “The Angels Take Manhattan” is a fan favorite, though the later released short video on Youtube that wraps up their story had a significant impact on fans of the companion couple.

(If you haven’t seen the Amy/Rory wrap up, this is it)

In the subsequent break, the 11th Doctor attempts to go into seclusion, and even his friends are unable to re-engage him in the world. It takes the intervention of a character named Clara Oswold in “The Snowmen” before the Doctor re-engages, especially when he realizes he’s encountered Clara before. Much of the following series involves him trying to figure out the role the “impossible girl” takes in his life. This search reveals a different side of the Doctor, as he deceives Clara repeatedly, and we get to see Matt Smith’s frenetic character duck questions and avoid consequences as he tries to hide why he’s so interested in the Clara character. The “Trenzalore” story answers those questions, as Clara steps into the Doctor’s own timeline in order to rescue him from a creature named “The Great Intelligence” whom is determined to turn all of the Doctor’s successes into failures. This episode also reveals the face of a mysterious “War” Doctor, whom we learn is the incarnation that caused the destruction of Gallifrey.

At the end of the regular season the BBC announced two specials featuring Matt Smith, the 50h anniversary special, and the Christmas Special. Both storylines stayed under wraps until their release, despite the massive interest from the fan base. The 50th anniversary special featured Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt coming together as incarnations of the Doctor as the War Doctor tries to make the decision whether or not to detonate the weapon that destroys Gallifrey. In a rather convoluted plot twist, Matt Smith as the Doctor reveals he’s been working on a plan to save Gallifrey for his entire life, and in a special event, all previous incarnations of the Doctor, as well as one future incarnation come together in order to save Gallifrey. This act is the most major plotline shift for the Doctor, and redirects the story in a new way. It is somewhat fitting then that after this special episode Matt Smith exited his tenure as the Doctor, so he can make way for a new series, a new Doctor, and a new drive for this ever-changing character.

Doctor Who TARDIS Collectible Set with K-9 Figure

Doctor Who TARDIS Collectible Set with K-9 Figure

This is a great gift set for anyone who wants to either add to their collection or for them to re-enact some scenes from Doctor Who. It’s one of the most authentic TARDIS’s that you’ll come across, being made from thick cardboard in a classic 1970s style design and comes complete with an incredibly detailed interior featuring a Master Control Console, allowing you to take the helm of the famous time machine and step into the shoes of the Time Lord himself.

Measuring at a whopping 11 inches tall, this TARDIS is definitely not on the small side with its 5 ½“ width and 5 ½” length when closed. The door opens too to add to the authenticity and this cool set comes with the Doctor’s faithful friend, K-9 the cyberdog.

The inside of the TARDIS shows amazing attention to detail and will hold an authentic 8” Doctor Who figurine perfectly. It really is the perfect gift if you want to feel like you’re stepping into his shoes and travelling through space, saving innocents and defeating the evil that lurks amongst the stars. There’s a vast array of Doctor Who pieces to collect but this is definitely one of the more impressive ones – whoever worked on the design of this product should definitely receive a recommendation.

Recommended for ages 14 years and up, the walls of the TARDIS have a magnetic strip to ensure that the TARDIS is perfectly sealed, probably for the space time-travel to ensure the safe arrival of the Doctor and his companions.

Director Douglas Mackinnon is helming two episodes of Doctor Who Series 8 next year.

Mackinnon has directed four episodes so far. He was responsible for the Series 4 two parter – The Sontaran Stratagem / The Poison Sky in 2008, and more recently Series 7′s The Power of Three in 2012 and Cold War in 2013.

The news was confirmed by the man himself on Twitter who said pre-production (not shooting) was beginning next week.

Mackinnon joins directors Ben Wheatley and Paul Murphy who are also working on two episodes each.

We’ll Miss You Matt Smith

Matt Smith

So as we all know, Matt Smith is regenerating in a few weeks and will become Peter Capaldi on the show. I saw this image this morning and it struck a chord with me. I didn’t like him at first but I grew to love his quirks and darker side. I can’t wait to see what Capaldi will bring to the role.

Series 8 will be uninterrupted


Steven Moffat has reaffirmed that Peter Capaldi’s debut series in 2014 will not be split.

Series 8 will be the first time since 2010 that Doctor Who will have a continuous, uninterrupted run.

Back in October, Moffat stated there would be at least 13 episodes for broadcast beginning Autumn 2014. Not sure if that includes the Christmas special or not.

The Day of the Doctor

day of the doctor

So just finished watching the 50th anniversary episode “Day of the Doctor”. I’m seeing mixed feelings on Facebook, although the comments on the Innerspace after show live seemed to be mostly favorable. I myself loved it. I had a couple small disappointments, things I would have liked to see included/completed but overall I was impressed. I won’t include any spoilers in this post, in case you haven’t seen it yet, but feel free in the comments to share what you loved/hated most as those can be skipped if people don’t want to see them. My biggest surprise is what a large budget it seems to have had. Really brought the show in line with current graphics and such which I loved. I fear that the new season might suffer in my eyes if they allow the effects to drop back to previous levels.

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary nearly here

50th anniversary special

November 23rd is a very special day for Doctor Who fans. The popular British Sci-fi series reaches a long-lived fifty years old, and the BBC plans to celebrate the fifth decade in style. Very few media outfits can credit fifty years under their belt, the esteemed company includes the likes of Disney and Warner Brothers, though no single TV show running can claim fifty years of history. Doctor Who may not have run continuously through the fifty years of it’s span, but every time the BBC produced the series it built up fans from all over the world. This anniversary also looks like it will be quite a treat for those fans, as the BBC builds up to a reunion of many of the modern series’ characters in one place at one time.

The BBC is not above taking a little bit of a risk, either. They plan to show the episode in both 2D and 3D, and producer Marcus Wilson describes the episode as a “love letter to the fans.” Since Steven Moffat wrote this series, it looks like there will be drama from beginning to end of this episode. The BBC also entered partnerships with theaters across the world so they can simultaneously present the episode to fans all over the world. This means that if you are a Who fan, you will likely be able to find a cinema near you where you can enjoy the experience with others and, well, avoid all the spoilers that no doubt will hit the internet the day after.

Matt Smith of course comes back in his role as the current incarnation of the Doctor along with Joanna Page and Jemma Redgrave. The big news is the return of both David Tennant and Billie Piper reprising their roles as the 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler in a guest appearance in this special episode. We also have rumors of a previously unknown incarnation of the Doctor played by John Hurt, though speculation abounds on what role his character plays in this episode. Of course, all of the speculation on all of these plot revelations is just that, speculations, because the actual plotline of the special episode is still under wraps.

No one really knows the full plotline for the special episode, though you can find rumors all over the place regarding the episode. Current speculation and somewhat confirmed rumors indicate the Daleks return for the 50th anniversary and so do the Zygons, a shape shifting race from Doctor Who Past. Steven Moffat is remarkably close-mouthed about the episode though; as he said “Most things that have been said about the 50th are not true… Normally I am responsible for the disinformation and the rubbish rumors – I usually put them out myself, but I haven’t needed to for this one.”

The BBC released their own synopsis of the upcoming episode on November 4th, “The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.” With this word coming from the BBC it looks like they are pulling out all t he stops for the 50th anniversary of the Doctor. If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you can bet that they are going to try and blow you away and potentially make you rethink the future of the series from that point forward.

There’s probably no geekier or quirkier way of waking up than to your very own Doctor Who TARDIS Alarm Clock! Not only would you have a cool TARDIS Alarm Clock by your bed, but it also projects the time – imagine waking up and seeing a beam of time coming from the TARDIS!

Doctor Who Off-Season

With the news of Matt Smith hanging up his time as the Doctor, there are new beginnings coming to the next series of Doctor Who, due to commence towards the tail end of the 2013 calendar. However, who is to be the new Doctor and what are some of the returning cast members up to? The BBC are very good at keeping the news of the new Doctor to a minimum but they surely must have the plans in place?

Currently, it’s anyone’s guess, but two of the main stars, Jenna Coleman who plays Clara and Matt Smith were back on set not only a week ago to receive Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The two stars taught the Royals how to operate the Tardis to perfection and Their Highnesses seemed elated to be in control of the infamous Time Machine. Shortly afterwards, Charles and Camilla moved on to meeting some of the monsters themselves and the voice behind them, Nicholas Briggs, who has been the vocal chords of some of the Time Lord’s longest standing foes over the years.

It wouldn’t have been a proper visit without being shown some of the show’s special effects and how they work with the use of a greenscreen. Danny Hargreaves, the shows special effects supervisor was on hand to give the couple a run through of exactly how some of their amazing effects are created.

Doctor Who returns to screens in November for the 50th anniversary edition, where stars such as Matt Smith, David Tennant, and Jenna Coleman will return once more.

New Doctor Who Series (Season)

doctor who

BBC Has confirmed a new season of Doctor Who has been commissioned. So after the November 23rd special 50th anniversary thing, and then the Christmas special on Christmas, we’ll be getting a brand new season. We don’t know when it will release but an educated guess would be summer 2014.


I also wouldn’t be surprised to see a spin-off at some point with Jenna Louise Coleman. Would make for an interesting series I think watching all the times she saved the Doctor over the centuries. This is just my opinion however and I have nothing with which to back it up :)

Introducing John Hurt


Well we still don’t know the Doctor’s name, but we do get to see a new doctor. John Hurt is the Doctor, but we don’t know WHICH doctor he will be. We’ll have to wait until November 23, 2013 to find out.

Oh the agony of waiting!!!

edit: This video answers the question of which doctor he is!

This is the just unveiled poster of the season finale. Alex Kingston is back, and of course Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman. There are still several episodes before the finale though, such as more cybermen, a haunted house, Clara’s story, and a journey to the center of the T.A.R.D.I.S. before season end on May 18. Don’t forget the 50th anniversary special will be in November 2013 and of course the yearly Christmas special in December as always.

More on the anniversary show


So while David Tenant (10th doctor) is confirmed for the special anniversary show, 9th doctor Christopher Eccleston has declined the invitation to return. It’s my understanding that they plan to use original footage for some of the actors who have died though, so I imagine they will do the same for number 9 :)

Happy Fish Fingers and Custard Day!


Fish Fingers (and Chips) with Custard

Serves 6 – PREP 15 mins – COOK 45 mins – Easy


3 large baking potatoes, cut into chunky chips
1 tbsp olive oil
14oz raw peeled king prawns
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup dried breadcrumbs
½ cup mayonnaise
2 crushed garlic cloves
½ – 1 tsp tumeric
lemon wedges, to serve (optional)


1. Heat oven to 400F. Arrange the chips on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil and season. Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden, turning halfway through.

2. Mix the prawns in the beaten egg and tip the crumbs onto a plate. Lift the prawns out with a slotted spoon so that any excess egg drains off and toss them in the crumbs with your hands so they are coated. Transfer to a baking tray.

3. When the chips have 10 minutes to go, heat grill to high. Cook the prawns for 3-5 minutes each side, until crisp and cooked through. Mix the mayo, garlic and tumeric together with some seasoning. Serve with the chips, ‘custard’ mayo and lemon wedges, if you like.

TIP if your oven doesn’t have a grill setting, then you can cook the prawns in the oven for the 10-12 minutes – they just may not get as golden.

David Morrisey as 12th Doctor Who?


So I was watching The Walking Dead tonight and following watched Talking Dead where David Morrisey was being featured and the host let slip that he’d ‘heard you were cast in Doctor Who’. Now I know David was in “The Next Doctor” episode back in 2008 where he thought he was the doctor but this slip sounded more current… I can’t find any news about it of course as the show is always really tight lipped about what’s coming. So, nothing to go on but a slip of the tongue by someone else, but that’s what I heard so I guess we’ll see.

Life Size Tardis!


So yesterday I was talking about this page on another site and someone asked me if there was a way to get a life sized tardis and I didn’t know the answer hehe. So I researched it and found the only company on the planet allowed to make the big ones. They also make life size Daleks and gobs of other stuff too. Anyway since I found them, of course I had to share them here :) Well out of my price range, but still good info to know!

Tiny TARDIS Pies

tardis pies

Makes 8 – PREP 30 mins plus chilling – COOK 25 mins – Easy


1lb 2oz shortcrust pastry plain flour, for dusting

little flour, for dusting

1 egg, beaten

For Turkey & Cranberry

2 tbsp double cream or crème fraiche

2 tsp cranberry sauce

handful shredded, cooked turkey

For Pesto Ham

2 tbsp double cream or crème fraiche

1 tbsp basil pesto

handful diced ham

2 tbsp frozen peas, defrosted

For Feta

2 tbsp double cream or crème fraiche

½ cup feta, crumbled

1 spring onion, finely sliced

2 semi-dried tomatoes, chopped

For Chili Corn

2 tbsp double cream or crème fraiche

¼ cup sweetcorn

1 tbsp sweet chili sauce

2 spring onions, finely sliced


Roll out the pastry on a floured surface so that it’s just a little thicker than a $1 coin. Cut out 8 x 4in circles using a pastry cutter or small saucer, then cut 8 x 3.5in circles for the lids – you may need to re-roll the trimmings.

Push the larger circles into 8 holes of a muffin tin.

Mix each of the filling ingredients together with some seasoning, and fill two pies with each filling.

Brush the edges with a little egg.

Place a lid on top of each and pinch the sides together to seal.

Chill for 15-20 minutes (if you have any vegetarians coming, mark the veggie pies so you know which is which and can secretly steer them towards them!)

Heat oven to 400F.

Brush the tops with more egg, then bake for 30 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden.

Serve warm, or leave to cool and enjoy at room temperature.

Happy New Year!

Doctor Who

I hope everyone got to enjoy the Christmas special and see the new Tardis interior. I’m torn on how it looks as I was a proponent for modernization but it looks kinda sorta sterile to me. Either way 50 years of the Doctor is an awesome accomplishment and can’t wait to see what’s coming this spring/summer when the show resumes in April.


Seventh Doctor in the Hobbit

seventh doctorwizard Radagast

With Sylvester McCoy (the seventh doctor) portraying the wizard Radagast in the new Hobbit film, it’s no wonder they extended the role beyond a mere mention to a more meaty role. If you are a fan of fantasy type movies, this is a good one to get out to although admittedly a few sections drag somewhat.

Congrats seventh incarnation for getting a great role in a great film!

Doctor Who Monitor Mate

Doctor Who TARDIS Monitor Mate

As the Doctor says, things sometimes get wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey. If you’ve ever had to re-watch the latest episode because you got lost in the timestream, it’s okay. (Did you draw out a timeline on a piece of paper? Yeah, okay, now you can be a little embarrassed.) The human mind just isn’t as good at keeping things straight. Heck, even the Doctor confuses himself sometimes. Wibbly, indeed.

If you’re looking for a way to have a little bit of the Doctor at your desk at work, the TARDIS Monitor Mate wants to land at an office near you. Vworp vworp vworp! This three-inch blue phone box adheres to the top of your monitor via a non-damaging adhesive pad. The detailed time machine will wibble and wobble on top of your monitor as you try to get all timey wimey with your deadlines. Product Specifications TARDIS bobblehead for your computer monitor More of a bobblebox, since the whole thing bobbles Adheres via a non-damaging adhesive pad
