I have a few questions for the person or people whom run this super important blog! How did you get to running the Doctor Who Tumblr? What are your favorite kinds of things to post? What is your favorite non-Gallifreyan alien species? and most importantly: Jelly Babies or Fish Fingers and Custard? c:

Hello! First off, we got asked to run this blog by the Doctor himself! After the events of Partners in Crime (the series 4 episode), a few of us Adipose stayed behind on Earth because we like this planet so much. To give us something to do, the Doctor asked us to put our knowledge of various alien species and our love of you Humans to good use and create this Tumblr. Many years later, here we are.

Secondly, our favorite thing to post is everything. Fanarts, graphics, edits, selfies, cosplays, all of the things. Whovians are so talented that even if we had 50 blogs, we wouldn’t be able to reblog all the things we wanted to. 

Number three: our favorite non-Gallifreyan alien species is definitely those teeny adorable Adipose, of course!

And most importantly: fish fingers in jelly baby-flavored custard. Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it.

In the art department there is a display case of students’ intaglio prints…. There was one that caught my eye, and it looks like I wasn’t the only one who noticed the beautiful print. ;)
The circular Gallifreyan reads “even demons run” (according to the title).

"Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. Nerds are allowed to love stuff; like, jump-up-and-down-in-your-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love-it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is "you like stuff," which is not a good insult at all. Like, "you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness." - John Green in Circular Gallifreyan.

I planned on doing this months ago and finally took the time to do it. I’m pretty happy with it :) (Sorry about the time stamp. I don’t have photoshop and don’t know how to take it off..)

This is the project I’ve been working on. I’ve become a consulting artist for WASD keyboards, and this is my first prototype. In the next few months they will be releasing a line of Premium Keyboards for sale, which will include Tengwar (Shown, Tolkien’s invention for his various languages of the Elves) as well Gallifreyan and Hylian. In the near future I plan to also release the Ancient’s Alphabet (SG1), Vulcan, Romulan, Daedric (Elder Scrolls, Skyrim/Oblivion etc), as well as Atlantean (SGA)

For those unaware, WASD Keyboards puts out the highest end mechanical keyboards. If you don’t know why you should use a mechanical keyboard, then you need to try a mechanical keyboard.


Subscribe and stay tuned as more updates come out. I’m very excited about these, and hope they’re well received.

Okay, this may mean nothing.  But, here it goes:

Is the History of the Time War in Gallifreyan?

I would assume, it would be, however, the title is in English.  But, what if that is simply Clara’s perspective.  Maybe she sees it in English but it actually in Gallifreyan.

The reason I am wondering is, if it was written in Gallifreyan, does that mean that Clara could read Gallifreyan, even though the TARDIS does not translate the language of the Time Lords?

What are your thoughts?
