wedding tardis

When it comes to geek wedding proposals, this one’s definitely up there in the “doing it right” section. Not only did redditor Muffinman5423 build a TARDIS, but he put the proposal on the TARDIS itself and then gave his fiancé a key to the TARDIS along with the ring.

I’m also going to give him extra points for TARDIS placement.

It’s a very sweet video and you can check it out after the break.

replica

Last weekend’s episode of Doctor Who showed us the TARDIS in “Siege Mode”—a last resort means of defense. It basically turned the TARDIS into a little Gallifreyan cube, and now you can own a replica of its latest incarnation. This comes from Rubbertoe Replicas who makes all sort of officially licensed Doctor Who props. The beautiful little cube measures 7.5 cm square and comes packed in a little black box to keep it safe.

Gaiman Doctor Who Tumblr

Doctor Who has at least one major flaw: it hasn’t had a female writer since 2008. It’s hard to wrap my head around, and the omission doesn’t go unnoticed. Writer Neil Gaiman recently touched on the gender imbalance when he answered a question on his Tumblr about which Who writer he’d like to hug:

guyplayfair asked: If you could hug any Doctor Who writer, which one would you hug? I think personally I would go for Robert Shearman, he looks cuddly and that beard would probably feel nice rubbing on your head. Russell T Davies also looks quite huggable but his propensity towards suits and lack of facial hair might not make it as pleasurable as Mr Shearman.

Gaiman answered:

I would like to hug all the women who have written for Doctor Who since 2008. All of them! I would start with…

What, nobody? That can’t be right…. (goes off, puzzled).

We agree, Mr. Gaiman, we agree.

Capture

Peter Capaldi has made no secret of the fact that he has always been a huge fan of Doctor Who. He once wrote the BBC requesting that he be made president of the fan club and even had some of his fan art appear in Doctor Who International Fan Club Magazine. Watch as poor Capaldi squirms in his seat on The Graham Norton Show when his fan boy past comes back to haunt him. Of course, he has nothing to worry about—this is one of the many reasons why we love him as the Doctor.

minister of chance

I see a lot of different Kickstarter projects, but this one caught my eye for a couple of reasons. Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy.

The Minister of Chance is described as an epic fantasy film based on the podcast series of the same name. I’d describe it as a film adaptation of a radio series, but you get the gist.

It’s a sweeping story with a cast of notable actors and, above all, Paul McGann’s playing the lead baddie. Check out the project video after the break…

tom baker scarf 1

Tom Baker’s colorful scarf makes the perfect addition to the decor of any home, and the creative folks at Our Nerd Home applied the design to a rug. They got the runner carpet at Home Depot and used acrylic and latex paints to add the stripes; they finished the ends by crocheting on yarn fringe. It’s simple and rather perfect for any Whovian, especially Fourth Doctor fans.

tardis guitar 1

If you’re ready to make your music sound bigger on the inside, you need to order a Police Box cigar box guitar from R Brand Guitars. They designed this instrument to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and the box guitar features the blue TARDIS police box and Gallifreyan designs on the neck. They’re made to order, and R Brand Guitars is only crafting a limited number of these beauties. They’re $150 each, and while they probably can’t go through time and space, they can produce lovely tunes.

More photos of the custom guitar after the break.

t1

You’ll have nothing but sweet dreams about The Doctor with your very own TARDIS headboard. It’s primarily built out of wood with the addition of dry erase boards for the windows and some vinyl letters. And this is even bigger on the inside, as the doors actually open to display a series of shelves for storing your books, a sonic screwdriver, and maybe even a fez.

TARDIS Stroller 1

If you’re a geeky parent and want your kid to travel in style, a TARDIS stroller is definitely the way to go. Twitter user Vanja Vinter made this galactic set of Doctor Who-themed wheels, and it does look bigger on the inside and quite comfortable. Can I get one made in an adult size?

See a couple more shots of the stroller after the break.

nick frost

The BBC announced that the Cornetto trilogy’s Nick Frost will be one of the guest stars on the Doctor Who Christmas Special and his quote in the press release proves he’s geeking out about it almost as much as we are:

“I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream “No spoilers!” Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”

The episode will be written by Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurt. Other guest stars for the special include Michael Troughton (son of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton), Nathan McMullen (Misfits) Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street), and Faye Marsay (Fresh Meat).
