the doctor

Now that Doctor Who is a go for Lego, the concepts are starting to trickle in to Lego Cuusoo. This idea for a Doctor Who Lego Set is definitely the most promising thus far. The design is the work of Andrew Clark who has been designing video games for the last 13 years but clearly has found his true calling.

The 530-piece set would include TARDIS interior and exterior walls, interior console, street, interior base, K9 and a Dalek. He’s also proposed 2 Doctor minifigs and 2 Companion minifigs that he hasn’t quite decided on yet. His suggestion is to have one older Doctor and one newer Doctor to make all the fans happy. There’s also the possibility of a Weeping Angel and even a Cyberman.

These dog versions of The Doctor, or Dogtors, are the work of artist Christie who has drawn them all, including the War Doctor. She didn’t just randomly pick pooches either, but tried to pick dogs that worked for each Doctor. The 4th Dogtor is especially perfect.

This amazing Temporal Schism Doctor Who Keyblade was handmade by deviantArtist SoulessStranger. She made it as a custom order out of layered plywood that was carved by hand with chisels and a dremel. The windows were done with matchsticks and a bit of resin. While the handle and key/crown are done in silver and brass spray paint, the rest of it is entirely hand painted.

Lego Cuusoo has turned some fantastic nerdy properties like Back to the Future and Ghostbusters into our favorite toys, but Doctor Who has never been on that list. The reason came down to licensing rights which prohibited Lego from building anything Whovian…until now. An update to Lego’s project guidelines has given Doctor Who a thumbs up, so what are you waiting for? Break out those Lego bricks and start building that TARDIS!

Most people put a spare key under the mat or in one of those silly fake rocks with the secret compartment. When your front door is zipping about the universe, that just won’t work. Nestling the key in its own notch above the door is one way to do it—except, how does it not just fly off when the TARDIS is moving? Seems like a pretty careless way to secure a time machine if you ask me.

We won’t get to see Peter Capaldi’s take on The Doctor for months, but fan Alisa Stern has made a puppet version of the 12th Doctor to make the wait a little easier. She’s created an entire web series starring Doctor Who puppets beginning with Christopher Eccleston and done a fantastic job of nailing each Doctor’s distinct look.

We already know that Peter Capaldi was a major Doctor Who fan as a child. He even petitioned to run the official Doctor Who fan club in 1972.

This beautiful sketch of the TARDIS comes is yet another bit of fan art by a young Capaldi who submitted the illustration along with the short piece on the show’s opening titles featured in the link above. They appeared in the May issue of the Doctor Who International Fan Club Magazine long before Capaldi was in line to play The Doctor. Sort of feels like things have come full circle.

We’ve seen composites of Superman and Batman which were both pretty neat, but neither was as interesting as this composite of all the Doctors. Indeed, researchers at Aberdeen University’s Face Lab put together the faces of all 13 Doctors and this was the result.

So, if this is the ultimate face of the Doctor, who would you cast to play him?

The 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who has come and gone so now the only speculation is over what it could have been with additional actors. One of those missing from the episode was Christopher Eccleston and now Steven Moffat is letting loose the details on the role he would have played. According to an interview he did with Doctor Who Magazine, Eccleston would have played John Hurt’s character, but with a few twists to make it fit the story.

“I was always nervous of that one, because it doesn’t fit with [2005's] Rose at all.

“[Eccleston] is a brand new Doctor in Rose, he’s absolutely, definitely new. It couldn’t have been is who pushed the button in the Time War, cos that’s a new man, very explicitly, in that episode. I also had trouble, I have to be honest, imagining it being Paul McGann’s Doctor.

“So all of this led me to the idea that if you’re going to sell to the Not-We audience a Doctor who essentially they haven’t seen before, then you have a freer hand than saying it has to be one of the ones you’ve already had. And it was predicated in getting an enormous star to be able to do it. We got John Hurt, so that was cool! Think of the fuss it’s created for us!”

John Hurt did make for an amazing Doctor, but one can’t help but wonder what it all would have been like if Eccleston had only said yes.

We saw an incredible Doctor Who tribute video done to the Doomsday theme which was likely to make you cry. Now we have a much happier version done to the iconic ’80s song Take On Me. It’s got the exact same video, just new music, and it completely changes the tone of the experience. Now, if only we could find a way to jump right into the frames and join The Doctor, it’d be perfect!
