Series 11 – rumours of change

There’s been a round of rumours (summarised neatly by DoctorWhoTV: RUMOUR: SERIES 11 TO HAVE FEWER BUT LONGER EPS, NEW TARDIS & SONIC, and the title rather gives it away. Now, to a large extent this is pure clickbait, but not quite, and not as much as the tedious horde of what do we know about the thirteenth…

Travel by TARDIS

If you randomly search for the phrase Travel by TARDIS, you get a lot of interesting art-work. One that caught my eye (on twitter) was this one by Joshua Graham of The Art Eye. I like the retro feel, and the phrases such as still be home in time for tea! There’s also a great Victorian Girl poster…

The TARDIS – quite accurate really!

One of the tropes of Doctor Who is the unreliability of the TARIDS, or the Doctor’s inability to steer accurately (take your pick).

It’s a Puffin book aimed at teaching young children their alphabet. I assume Gallifreyans have something more complicated written in their own script when they are…

Brew Box TARDIS cafe in Glasgow

Old Bakehouse Antiques

If you follow my musings, you’ll know I am a big fan of any Narnia Doctor Who connections. Well done, then, the Northants Herald & Post for their TARDIS / Narnia piece on a fascinating antique shop. The shop is The Old Bakehouse Antiques and the article (compete with TARDIS) is: Welcome to Northampton’s own Narnia – a hidden Tardis-like…

A Lego TARDIS record attempt

Lego TARDISes are everywhere (well it seems that way some times) and the latest is being built in Birmingham. Reported in the Birmingham Mail under Life-size LEGO Doctor Who Tardis to be built at BRICK 2015 at NEC this is a record attempt at building a TARDIS from real Lego – 100,000 bricks to be precise.

The LEGO TARDIS

The Doctor Who FaceBook page has this to say along with the accompanying photo – Landing Soon. Nothing more to add, I just hope Santa checks my Christmas list carefully! !!! Message Ends !!!
