Second TV Trailer for The Day of the Doctor

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 11, 2013 in Dr. Who


The 50th anniversary special for Doctor Who is coming up on November 23rd, so I now give you permission to get very excited. The latest trailer has a much better look at everything that’ll be going on in the special, and it looks like there is a lot. Three doctors, Daleks, and redecorations — there’s plenty here. It’ll be interesting to see how much they explain about John Hurt’s Doctor, as well as the transition to the next Doctor. Then again, I’m not a hardcore Who fan, so perhaps this has been explained thoroughly already. Anyway, check out the trailer below! Read more…

Is Matt Smith Evacuating the Tardis?

Posted by Michael Sacco on Oct 23, 2011 in Dr. Who, Television

Matt Smith

Though he appears not to have managed to regenerate eyebrows in his latest incarnation, the storied Doctor, as played by Matt Smith, has proven more popular than ever in his most recent season on BBC. No Doctor lasts forever, though, and the date of Smith’s departure from the role has been the subject of much speculation. Smith appeared to indicate that he’d only have one more year of Doctor Who in a recent interview, saying that after “another year” as the Doctor, he’d like to come to LA and do some acting work there. Does it mean anything? I bet we’d know if we had some sort of superscientific time-travel device. Anyone know someone who has one? Read more…

Are Dr. Who and Yoko Littner an Item?

It looks like it’s crossover universe time on Gurren Lagann! If you look at this second photo it seems pretty clear that Yoko Littner is smitten with the Time Lord (and vise versa): Read more…

My Little Ood: Friendship is Tragic

Posted by Michael Sacco on Sep 11, 2011 in Dr. Who, Television

My Little Ood by EatToast

My Little Pony is miraculously en vogue again. It’s almost like we’ve … traveled back in time, much like Amy and the Doctor routinely do! Clearly DeviantArt user EatToast has the right idea on how to celebrate such an amazing coincidence — by converting My Little Pony toys to horrific recreations of Doctor Who villains. This particular model is an Ood-pony, an ungulate version of the creepy aliens from that weird space-Hell episode from the tenth doctor’s run. He’s done a few more, too, including a Cyberman-pony and a Silence-pony. You know, come to think of it, doesn’t “brony” sound like the name of an alien race? Read more…

Dr. Who Personalized Sonic Screwdriver

Oh sure any average Dr.Who cosplay fan can order a stock model sonic screwdriver — but this sweet goodie allows up to 80 possible combinations so you can be unique! Apparently this customizable sonic screwdriver also includes multiple sound effects to astound your co-workers and fellow geeks, however batteries are required… Read more…



An Ardent Anime Anthropologist: Our Interview with Charles Dunbar

Posted by Linda Yau on May 9, 2011 in Fandom, Hobbies and Collections

A Study of Anime

Recently I was at Anime Boston, and met an interesting cosplayer with a rich in potassium banana. I also definitely attended panels hosted by this person of interest. Meet Charles Dunbar aka Anime Antropologiest of Study of Anime. From the time I have met him to now, his panels at conventions will pack rooms. This is a scholar that has made my appreciation toward anime more interesting and academic in a sense that is away from the college environment. I hope to see more of this man speak, so I happened to be able to conduct an email interview with him. Read more…

Is This Our Last Pond Season?

Posted by Michael Sacco on May 8, 2011 in Dr. Who, Television

Karen Gillan

The latest incarnation (literally) of Doctor Who has been its most successful yet, with Matt Smith proving a popular Doctor and his lovely companion Amy Pond acting as his impulsive foil. It looks like their duo (now trio, with husband Rory) may be coming to an end, though — actress Karen Gillan, who plays Amy, has signed on for a role in BBC’s drama We’ll Take Manhattan, and its filming schedule conflicts with Who‘s. Arthur Darville, the man behind Rory, also signed on to play Mephistopheles in Dr. Faustus, which runs throughout the summer and fall. Where does that leave the Doctor and his companion? Well, it’s not the first time he’s picked up a new companion in his travels. But somehow I feel a little more attached to Amy than others we’ve met.

The Doctor’s Lost

Dr.Who Lost crossover t-shirt

I can’t really say this would make for an awesome t-shirt but I really can’t pass up a chance to comment on this nifty work by artist and designer FFTKrazee. A clever little crossover between two of our fanboy favorites, Lost and Dr. Who, the design depicts Desmond, Faraday leaning up against a DHARMA-brand TARDIS. I never really thought about it until someone mentioned it in the comments for the shirt, but Jeremy Davies always looked like a sad Keanu Reeves. Read more…

Want to Work on the Doctor Who MMO? Better Move to Wisconsin

Posted by Michael Sacco on Feb 25, 2011 in Dr. Who, Videogames

Doctor Who

Fans of Doctor Who may be quite pleased to hear that a free-to-play MMO based on the Doctor’s exploits is in development! Called Words in Time, it’s set to be a “fun and easy” online game for fans of all ages in which you assist you the Time Lord himself, going on missions and vanquishing classic foes. Those with software engineering skills may be even more interested in the game, because its developer, Three Rings, is hiring! The catch is that you have to live in Madison, Wisconsin. Maybe it’s not as bad as it sounds, though — their office is pretty darn cool. Read more…

Heroes of Space and All That Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Stuff

Posted by Michael Sacco on Feb 12, 2011 in Dr. Who, Star Trek, Television

Star Trek vs. Doctor Who

Sure, one crew travels in Starfleet’s best ship, and the other travels in a phone booth, but they’re both credited for saving the universe several times over. And now, here they are, together at last: Kirk, Spock, the Doctor, and Amy Pond, ready to kick some Klingon tail! And Dalek tail, and Cyberman tail, and Romulan tail. What, only four evil races? Against these guys? The bad guys don’t stand a chance. Great work from Summerset over at DeviantArt. Read more…

This TARDIS is Somewhat Smaller Than I Remember

Posted by Michael Sacco on Jan 21, 2011 in Dr. Who


And so is the Doctor inside! Mateo’s graphic designer dad made him this miniature TARDIS out of corrugated cardboard. I’m not sure if he can travel through time and space with it, but it probably makes a great hide-and-go-seek spot. At the very least he’s probably going to have some jealous friends — once they’re old enough to appreciate campy British sci-fi adventures, anyway. And I thought my Power Wheels fire truck was cool.

A Time Machine to Keep You Clean

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jul 16, 2010 in Dr. Who

Tardis Soap

The funny thing is that when Dr. Who was being developed in 1963 the iconic police-boxes could be spotted all over London and where very commonplace — however in 21st Century England where cell phones are commonplace there are that many to be found anymore. So ironically the TARDIS itself is as much a celebration of a bygone British era as it is a prop from a well beloved science fiction series. This TARDIS-Soap is a great way to keep the series close to your heart every day while giving you a slight caramel-apple smell — and best of all for this fanboy the soap uses all vegan materials.

The Cutest Dr. Who I Have Ever Seen

David Tennant crafted doll

Standing at ten inches tall this crafted doll of David Tennant is perhaps the first Time Lord that you’d want to adopt and take home! Although it should be pointed out that this is a collectable art toy and sadly not for the kids. The crafty Time Lord was created by GirlCalledRic who has a nice geeky shop on Etsy. Read more…

Watch Your Cookies Disappear Into Another Dimension

The Talking TARDIS Cookie Jar

Tragically the Talking TARDIS Cookie Jar doesn’t actually talk — however it does produce Dr. Who approved sound effects. Although if you’re looking for a more authentic experience make sure to fill your cookie jar with traditional English biscuits to enjoy with your tea and favorite Time Lord of choice.

The Genius of the Borg as a Plot Device

Posted by Michael Pinto on Feb 12, 2010 in Star Trek, Videogames

Picard as a BorgThe charm and the problem with the original Star Trek series was that there was never a mess that Captain james T. Kirk couldn’t get out of — and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan turned this aspect of the series into a stellar plot device. But looking at this promo video of Star Trek Online: Borg Faction made me realize that what makes the Borg a brilliant plot device is that not only do they outclass Federation technology, but on top of that they’re pure evil.

Dr. Who Makes House Calls

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 13, 2010 in Dr. Who, Hobbies and Collections

Dr. Who Cell Phone Alert Charm

The Dr. Who Cell Phone Alert Charm comes in two flavors: Dalek (seen above) and Tardis. The catch is that these cell phone charms only work with 800 – 1600 MHz GSM network cell phones — but if you own one of those models the cell phone charm will light up when a call comes in. Read more…



What Would Happen If You Mixed Dr. Who and Lost in Space?

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 13, 2010 in Dr. Who

A clever fanboy in the UK edited together this nice mashup video which kitbashes Dr. Who with Lost in Space. Of course having a character called Dr. Smith seemed to help the creative process a bit. In terms of Lost in Space I was never in love with the show although I always watched it in re-runs as a kid, but years later I discovered that the pilot for the show was quite well done and lacked the comedy elements that turned me off as a child.

What Would Happen If You Mixed Dr. Who and Space:1999?

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jan 9, 2010 in Dr. Who, Television

The above fan mashed video kit bashes together the Dr. Who spacial The Waters of Mars with classic 70s sci fi series Space:1999. What this video reminds me of is just how well the opening titles of Space:1999 hold up — that powerful combination of the music and editing still hold up today.

Ten Doctors: However Some Are Better Than Others

Posted by Michael Pinto on Sep 9, 2009 in Dr. Who

This wonderful fan made video features a scenario which calls all ten incarnations of Dr. Who into action. The funny thing is that for me this video has the unintended consequence of making you compare all the actors who have played the good doctor since the 60s. I hadn’t realized how much I really appreciated Tom Baker or hated Colin Baker until you see them all side-by-side. And of course with Dr. Who the acting and the script are everything because if you hide behind a high special effects budget the show just lacks its unique flavor. Read more…

What Would Happen if Captain James T. Kirk Met Dr. Who?

Posted by Michael Pinto on Apr 12, 2009 in Dr. Who, Star Trek

I got a kick out of this fan made film which combines footage from the original Star Trek series with contemporary Dr. Who. The video is titled Doctor Who – Trek Through Time Part II – The Wrath Of Caan Parody Easter Special 2009 and is by Kelvington who has done a number of other well done projects which kitbash sci fi classics together.

Mickey Mouse Dalek

Mickey Mouse Dalek: Illustration by Darryl Cunningham

I think anyone who who has found Disney a bit corporate and cold would appreciated this Mickey Mouse Dalek by illustrator Darryl Cunningham. Darryl also does an amusing web comic called Super Sam and John of the Night which is well worth checking out.
