doctor who

Mas

Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) is guest starring on Doctor Who, and it won’t be pleasant for our favorite Time Lord. Lead writer and executive producer Stephen Moffat notes:

“We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”

We will have to use or imaginations for now since the show won’t return until this Fall.

tennant date

David Tennant was at Wizard World in Raleigh, NC this weekend, and while he was there he made a video that helped a young fan get a date (she said yes). He also discussed Ten’s relationships with Donna, Rose and gave extra love to Wilfred Mott.

To top it off, when a fan asked, “Which do you think was harder for your Doctor – saying goodbye to Rose, or saying goodbye to Donna?”, we got an answer that will both tug at your heart and delight fans.

Check out the videos after the break…

This Doctor Who lamp is just the thing for letting the Doctor know that you’re ready and waiting for him to show up in that magical blue box. It’s a triangular lamp that features the TARDIS going through the wormhole on the front and back, but the villains are along for the ride, too. A Weeping Angel, Cyberman, and Dalek are on the sides of the lamp and project their images onto surrounding walls.

The lamp is handmade from acrylic and measures 9″ on each side. It uses just a standard C7 bulb and is made to order so it’ll take about 4-6 weeks to have this Whovian lamp on your table.

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.

dalek baby

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!
