Welcome to our time-traveling, space-warping round up of all the news we could find about the world’s most popular Timelord, Doctor Who. And there’s a ton of news to get through because, remember: this article is bigger on the inside.
ITEM! Doctor Who Goes To Westworld
Mild spoilers here, but it looks like The Doctor will be battling some sort of Cowboy Cyborg, or Cowbyborg if you will, in the upcoming season. Plenty more pictures of people hanging out in the old west at this link.
ITEM! Doctor Who Con Is This Weekend
At this point, we’re going to have to do a fair bit of time traveling to snag tickets for the first official Doctor Who Convention in Cardiff… But suffice to say, there’s probably going to be a ton of news coming out about the upcoming season – and perhaps even the fiftieth anniversary in 2013 – over the weekend. Geronimo!
FORCED! Doctor Who Uses A Lightsaber
This weekend, while watching the season finale of The Walking Dead, I turned to my wife and said, “The best possible way this could end is if, in the last minute, someone is screaming, “We need a doctor!” and Doctor Who enters and says, “Maybe I can help.” We then posited that the only thing that would make that better is if Facebook and Twitter spontaneously shut down, so no one could talk to their friends about this plot twist online. Point being, everything – even Star Wars – is better with The Doctor.
NESTED! BBC America Explores The World of Who-craft
We’ve seen a few of the items BBC America posted for their Doctor Who crafty round-up, but these nesting dolls, which start with the TARDIS, and include all eleven doctors in reverse chronological order (time travel!) are pretty adorable.
MARRIED! TARDIS Ring Makes Us Want To Say Yes, A Thousand Times Yes
We have no words, other than, “Yes.” Also, here’s the description of how this happened, and what it is from the creator’s website: “I was bored and made this. Its a Police Box based ring with a tension set 1CT Princess Cut center stone. The three round stones is the Police Box sign, the two sets of four baguettes symbolize the windows, and a small princess cut below that to symbolize the instructions found on the front of the Police Box.” We got bored earlier, and ate two sandwiches.
BRITTA’D! Inspector Spacetime’s Final Coffin Nail Gets Nailed
For those of you who haven’t been religiously following this story, there was a parody of Doctor Who on NBC’s Community called Inspector Spacetime. The actor who played the Inspector decided to make a web-series of it, without Sony or NBC’s permission. That got scuttled pretty quickly. Now, Community creator Dan Harmon has come out, and kind of said he doesn’t want to get involved. That doesn’t mean the end of Spacetime, though… It was a major plot-point on Community just last episode.
UN-BRITTA’D! Awesome Inspector T-Shirt!
…Speaking of unlicensed, here’s a faboo Inspector Spacetime T-shirt from Etsy user IntarsiaDesign. Now all we need is a T-shirt with a picture of The Master that says “The Darkest Timeline,” and our lives will be complete.
