Some guys give jewelry, others give flowers, but one guy gave his wife some amazing Gears of War art to commemorate their first wedding anniversary. Redditor Xioo worked with artist Edward J. Chua to modify one of his existing pieces to include himself, his wife, and their two dogs. I don’t know if Xioo and his wife are any good in a fight, but those dogs look absolutely vicious. No wonder they’re leading the charge.

Depending on your feelings about 3D, this will either make you very happy or a little stabby. The BBC has announced that the special 50th Anniversary episode of Doctor Who will be broadcast in 3D and that it will also be show in theaters. According to Moffat:
It’s about time. Technology has finally caught up with Doctor Who and your television is now bigger on the inside. A whole new dimension of adventure for the Doctor to explore.
As to the timing, no one knows if this will be before, after or at the same time as the show is broadcast. Either way, it will give those of us who don’t have a 3D set-up in our living rooms a chance to experience the anniversary episode in all its glory.

I swear to God, Steven Moffat is trying to kill us all with suspense and constant rumors about who will be in the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who. The latest news says Moffat is finishing up a script where all the Doctors have to come together to help the current Doctor, Matt Smith. This news comes from the Birmingham Mail, and backs up a previous rumor that quickly vanished.
The episode, set to air in November, will bring back the first three Doctors (William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee) through studio wizardry. These Doctors will appear in brief flashbacks, but that puts them in the episode so it counts!
Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann are already appearing in an audio anniversary special and have said they’d like to come back for the anniversary episode and the BBC is stalking Tennant to keep him quiet.
The one hold-out was Eccleston, but he’s recently said that he thinks there is more left for him to do with the character. If he’s not definitely out, then he could definitely be in. These little tidbits combined with the reported Moffat script all lend credence to the rumors that we’re going to get all 11 Doctors in one episode, but former Doctor Colin Baker put a damper things by categorically denying his involvement via Twitter saying that he “is not aware of any 50th stories nor have I been approached.”
So, once again we are left wondering what the truth really is.

Although it seems like we won’t be getting all the classic Doctors back for the 50th Anniversary, we may at least be getting one. According to a “solid source” who spoke with Bleeding Cool, David Tennant will be back.
Yes. David Tennant will be back in time for the Doctor Who anniversary. Be prepared to be surprised…
Not even a maybe, but a solid yes! I’m really hoping this one is true because I don’t think there’s a Who fan out there who wouldn’t like to see Tennant back in the role of The Doctor. This is only from a source, though, and not an official statement so I’m not going to get my hopes up too high. There are also rumors about the return of John Simm as The Master, which would also be amazing. Still, if only one rumor can be true, I’m hoping it’s the one about Tennant.
UPDATE: Almost forgot about this, but keep in mind that Tennant kind of teased everyone about his participation back in August.

We all wanted it to somehow happen, but according to a recent interview with 6th Doctor Colin Baker, there will be no appearances by the classic Doctors for Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary. He notes:
“No. As far I know, neither of any of my erstwhile colleagues have been asked either.
And on the subject of the long rumored Doctor Who movie?
I think they would be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they asked me to do it. All you have to do is hold up a picture of what I look right now and what I looked like then and you’d know why.”
I think fans would forgive the aging Doctors just to see them all together, but it doesn’t seem like Baker is too excited about the idea anyway (though he did mention that its possible he could be persuaded for a cameo). It’s a shame, because Fifth Doctor Peter Davison’s appearance in the short Time Crash filmed for Children in Need was fantastic.
Watch Time Crash after the break and wonder about what could have been…

It was ten years ago this September that Firefly had its premiere. Although it lasted just 14 episodes, it still secured a place in the hearts of fans around the world and is a truly beloved sci-fi franchise. Fan Jeff Halsey made this beautiful poster of Serenity to commemorate the series anniversary and the folks at QMx liked it so much they decided to produce it for all of us. It is printed on 100-lb satin finish paper, measures 27″ x 40″ and you can place your name on a waiting list to be among the first to be notified about the pre-order.
“But it ain’t all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of flyin’ is? Love. You can know all the math in the ‘Verse, but take a boat in the air you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells ya she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens. Makes her a home.” – Captain Malcolm Reynolds
