Hello Whovians. Let’s cut to the chase- we have a chance to hang out with Mark Gatiss during the new Doctor Who series and want to ask him everyone’s questions!

Make a post or send us an ask using the hashtag #AskDW and a team of highly trained adipose will sort through all of your questions to prep them for Mark. It’ll be a while before we’ll be able to sit down and talk with him but if you have a TARDIS it’ll feel like no time at all. 

What’s up with the plural from of “TARDIS”?

For those of you who are not familiar with Doctor Who, TARDIS is an acronym that stands for “Time And Relative Dimension In Space.”

This is what it looks like:

To answer your question, the plural form of TARDIS is … TARDISes.

Here’s proof:

Although “TARDI” and “TARDII” look cool, we’re afraid that the plural of “TARDIS” is rather pedestrian.

That doesn’t take away from the enjoyment we Whovians had in making this post.

Cheers. 🙋

I was shopping for preschool craft supplies at Hobby Lobby this afternoon. (Blue is for bottle filled with blue balls and blue beans.) I spotted the TARDIS pencil holder first, and HAD to buy it. Going to put it in my work area in my classroom. The ceramic canister on the right looks like an abstract TARDIS. Just add some white paint, and bam! Artsy TARDIS cookie jar. But wait! There’s more! As I was standing in line to check out, a tween girl was standing in front of me. She was wearing a darling homemade skirt made from TARDIS patterned fabric. I didn’t take a picture of her, as she is a minor. I told her I liked her skirt, and she asked me if I liked DW. “Oh yes,” I said. Her little sister chimed in, “She’s the geek in the family.” I replied, “So am I! My husband thinks I’m crazy. But you know what’s? Geeks rule.” She smiled so brightly. I hope I made her day. She made mine!

So I have a horrible obsession with tv shows and the ability to needlepoint plastic and yarn together to make something that looks sorta good. I have a metric butt-ton more, Including all the new Who companions, these are just the ones that are set up nicely.
