The madman behind this incredible LEGO TARDIS interior is Thorsten Bonsch. To commemorate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, he built a replica of the TARDIS interior as it existed for most of the 11th Doctor’s run.

The project was so ambitious it took him nearly 3 years to complete. And none of the LEGO pieces have been modified, save for parts that are “officially” meant to be cut—like hoses and strings.

The level of detail is just incredible. You can check out more jaw dropping views after the break.

The way the TARDIS appears and disappears hasn’t changed much over the years, so YouTuber John Smith decided to try giving it a bit of an update. It’s still the same TARDIS with that same familiar sound, but the way it fades in and out is entirely different:

Since the TARDIS’ dematerialisation effect has remained largely unchanged for the past fifty years, I thought it might be interesting to try out a new approach. So this is my attempt at capturing what travelling through time and space might look like from the point of view of the TARDIS – from take-off to landing, all in one shot.

The vortex is possibly the best part of all as it’s no longer just a silent thing around the TARDIS but a crackling, popping, tunnel of light and sound.

funko

There were a lot of reveals during Toy Fair and they were definitely exciting, but the products I was clutching my wallet over were the new items from Funko.

Not content to take all of our money with their POP! line, Funko debuts new additions the Fabrikations plush, Mopeez, Legacy figures, Re-Action figures, and more POP!s in exciting new franchises like Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, The Fifth Element, The X-Files, Breaking Bad, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jaws, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Garbage Pail Kids, and more.

A lot of these new items have been listed for pre-order, so we thought we’d give you product links on some of the stuff we posted about previously along with some new items.

Check it out after the break.

Comedian and writer Rye Silverman spent time at Gallifrey One this weekend and he’s found living proof of the most adorably terrifying creature in existence. A Dalek Caan baby stroller.

It’ll lull you in with baby cuteness and then it’ll exterminate you. Talk about an abomination!

scully and mulder

At New York Toy Fair 2015, which kicked off on Saturday and is running through Tuesday, there is A) a lot of Frozen, B) A LOT OF FROZEN, C) a Tribble coin purse from The Coop (bless), and D) all the Funko you can shake an adorable plastic figurine at. If you weren’t there either because you weren’t in New York or you were in New York but made the completely reasonable decision to stay indoors where it wasn’t frakking freezing, you can live the experience vicariously through me. There’s no visual aid for my reaction to the upcoming X-Files figures, above, but it was something like this. Behind the cut: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jaws, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, The Fifth Element, Star Trek, and more!

It is not uncommon for fans to argue about the things they love. Those arguments can be very passionate, and no one, not even  Former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies and current showrunner Steven Moffat are immune. Case in point—they recently got into a war of words over whether or not Queen Elizabeth I had sex with the Doctor.

The whole thing got started when a fan asked the official Doctor Who magazine if the Doctor was a bigamist since he’s been married to River Song, Marilyn Monroe, and Queen Elizabeth I. Moffat responded that technically the marriage to the Queen could be annulled since it was never consumated, to which Davies took umbrage because that was during his tenure as showrunner. He wrote into the magazine and said,

I love your list in DWM 482 of the Doctor’s many wives. Did you ever think we’d be having that conversation, 10 years ago? But… what’s this? His marriage to Queen Elizabeth the First was unconsummated? But, but, but… in The End of Time Part One, the Tenth Doctor arrives on the Ood-Sphere to greet his old friend Ood Sigma with the words, “Got married. That was a mistake. Good Queen Bess. And let me tell you, her nickname is no longer… ahem.” So, what does that mean, boss? What can it possibly mean?? Steve, what does it MEAN??? Thank you.

You might think that would be the end of things, but Moffat had a response to Davies. See what he had to say after the break.

If you’ve been holding your breath waiting for the Doctor Who LEGO set we knew was coming, you can exhale. LEGO just announced that they’ll be making the Doctor Who set based on this LEGO Ideas submission by Andrew Clark.

BBC Worldwide UK confirmed the news in a press release:

Both Doctor Who and LEGO enjoy a particularly close relationship with their fans and I can’t wait to see what LEGO produce.” Emma Owen, UK spokesperson for LEGO Ideas added, “We’re extremely excited to announce that a Doctor Who and a WALL-E set will be released as our next LEGO Ideas fan based sets, congratulations to the designers Andrew Clark and Angus MacLane!

“After receiving over 10,000 votes from the online community and having gone through rigorous toy testing from our expert panel, these awesome sets are on track to be on shelves later this year. The final set designs, pricing and availability are being worked out as we speak, so watch this space for the final details!

No word on which of the Doctors they’ll be including, but we’ll keep you posted. A WALL-E set would be awesome too. That would be the one by Angus MacLane.

David Tennant, aka the 10th Doctor, won the Special Recognition award at the National Television Awards last week. Basically, this award goes to someone who’s just plain awesome. Tennant definitely fits the bill.

The award is great, but his reaction is even better. He has no idea he’s getting the award so when his father and colleagues like Catherine Tate and Billie Piper start singing his praises in a video montage, Tennant is visibly overcome. You might get a little choked up yourself.

David Tennant is narrating a new BBC One series titled Pets – Wild at Heart. The documentary shows the “wild side” of pets and looks at everything from dogs, to hamsters, to talking birds. One preview for the show stars a clever talking budgie named Disco; he knows several choice phrases including “Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?” Also, Disco is a Time Lord. He even notes that his cage is bigger on the inside. I hope the owners taught Disco that line specifically because the Tenth Doctor is narrating the episode.

The show premieres on BBC One on January 21st.

Watch the budgie video and more Tennant-narrated previews of Pets – Wild at Heart after the break (the hamster one is especially amusing)…

The Doctor sometimes reminds me of Dr. Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat. The character is mysterious and nonsensical, and many of the Time Lords we know on Doctor Who have those qualities. Artist DrFaustusAU has come to the same conclusion and drawn all 13 of the Doctors as though they were characters in Dr. Seuss books. I think the Fourth Doctor in particular would fit right in.

Get a closer look at the Doctors after the break.
