I did it. I finally did it. and so let me introduce my favorite character on DW EVER, yes Clara, it’s you. For the first time I saw her I thought she barely could replace Rose, or even Amy (although I don’t like her as much) or basically any other companion.I was obviously judging her just by her appearance and with some sort of personal prejudice BUT LISTEN I FELL IN LOVE IN 30 SECONDS. it was that episode with Daleks, where she was just walking around and it was just freaking 30 seconds and I knew she was gonna be amazing.
P.s. Wasn’t her dress made of stars? (no way it wasn’t)
I can’t believe I did this cosplay THIS year. Feels like I’ve had it for ages! I love it <3
I’ve had so much fun with my lovely Female Tardis (and co-creator, I would never have done this without her, give her all your love <3) and I even got a cool Dalek to hang with all the way from Canada <3!
This cosplay has even been approved and chosen specifically to win a competition by Sylvester McCoy (7th Doctor)
It has been reblogged by the Official Doctor Who tumblr & Facebook TWICE.
Happy Birthday to David Bradley, actor who played William Hartnell in An Adventure in Space and Time! Peter got to meet him and Jenna took his photo. This was during the San Diego Comic Con, taken on July 11, 2015. Photos were found on the Official Doctor Who of Tumblr.
Hullo, Doctor Who Tumblr here. With the new season of Doctor Who coming up on September 19th we thought we’d update our handy #NewToWho guide for anyone wanting to start watching! We know that starting Doctor Who can be a little bit overwhelming especially with over 50 years of programming, and with all of time and space, where do you start?
Well, don’t worry because we’re here to help.
The first question you may be asking is “What is Doctor Who, exactly?” The show follows the story of the Doctor, an alien Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels through all of time and space in the TARDIS, a time machine disguised as a big blue telephone box, saving the universe from enemies like the Daleks and Zygons. His current travel companion is Clara Oswald, though he has a long list of friends and companions who have shared journeys with him. Instead of dying, the Doctor is able to regenerate into a new body, taking on a new personality with each regeneration. Twelve actors, plus John Hurt, have played the Doctor thus far. Doctor Who celebrates change, creativity, and compassion, taking its viewers on adventures throughout the universe and teaching them the value of bravery and friendship.
This is the current Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. He’s lucky number 12.
Hello to you too!
Your next question may be “What is a Whovian? What qualifies me to be one?” A Whovian is a member of the Doctor Who fandom, simple as that. That’s the great thing about Who, it doesn’t matter if you’ve watched for 50 years or 50 minutes as long as you’re excited about Doctor Who and other Doctor Who fans. We might be a little biased but we think the Doctor Who fandom is pretty great! Whovians produce original music, write fanfiction, make gifsets and edits, create amazing cosplays, and have so much enthusiasm towards the show that they love. Plus, it’s incredibly global! Even if you live on a tiny island somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, there’s bound to be at least one other Whovian there with you.
Whovians came from far and wide to hang out with each other at the Doctor Who Fan Meetup at San Diego Comic Con 2015
From Friday, August 22nd through Sunday, August 24th, 59.5k posts were made about Doctor Who by a community of 796.4k Tumblr users, earning 3.6 million notes. That’s an average of 61 notes per post, putting a single weekend of Doctor Who on par with a month’s worth of posts from the science community.
Gifsets are popular in Tumblr fandom for their ability to replay small moments that lend greater significance to characters and moments in a series that are easy to miss during a show’s initial run. The official Doctor Who Tumblr understands this about their audience and uses a lot of gifsets in their posts.
Victory of the Daleks
>Receiving a call for help from his old friend Winston Churchill, the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond head for World War II to assist the Prime Minister. Once there, though, the Doctor reunites with his greatest enemies, the scum of the universe — the Daleks. But why are these survivors of the Medusa Cascade War passing themselves off as man-made weapons? And why don’t they recognise the Doctor? What could these “Ironsides” have planned?
