~Kanan Matsuura non-idolized and idolized Job (#1144) + idolized Yukata (#1007) set~

As some may remember I did something like this in the past - a postcard themed Nozomi wallpaper. This time I wanted to do something simmilar, so I chose the theme of an old photo album.

Make a Tardis and a Dalek keyring!

You’ll need rectangular acrylic keyrings with a space that measures 30mm by 50mm. I used Framecraft brand ones (UK).

Use 20 count white Aida and stitch with 1 strand for whole cross stitches and back stitches. DMC colours.

Some time later…

Iron flat and cut out the designs so that the size of the Aida exactly matches the size of the charts square for square.

Leave the backing paper in the keyring (or select some pretty paper or card of your choice). Make sure it is not too thick or the keyring won’t fit together. Happy stitching!

Big versions coming soon…

David Tennant on Filming Goodbye to Rose Tyler

“i remember worrying on the day we shot this scene that as I was actually a projection from inside the Tardis my hair shouldn’t be blowing in the wind.

That seemed terribly important at the time, and although we didn’t find a solution to it, it bothered me for weeks. Then I saw the finished scene and of course all that matters is the end of the Doctor and Rose’s story. Russell had weaved some glorious magic for two seasons and it all came together so perfectly in this scene that people still talk to me about it with misty eyes all these years later (and I suspect they always will.)”

Twelve for Twelve: July 18

Continuing my contributions to the Thank You, Peter Capaldi project.

July 18: Team TARDIS.

We’ve been asked to write about the Twelfth Doctor’s companions. While many are going to write about Pearl, Nardole and Missy, I am not. Although they were fine, I never thought they gelled as a “team”. Most of that has to do with the fact they only had a single series together. I also have other reasons - unrelated to those three characters - for not wanting to talk about recent events in the show, based on my general dislike for Series 10 and feelings about recent announcements leading into Series 11. My opinions regarding both have been well-documented here (re: Series 10) or have been strongly implied over the last day or so (re: Series 11).

So for me, when I hear Team TARDIS, at least in context of the Twelfth Doctor, it’s always going to be Twelve and Clara. Even without the romance aspect, these two were a team unlike any “Team TARDIS” I’ve seen in many a year. The definition of the Hybrid - a combination of a passionate Time Lord and a young woman so similar to him - really applies well to describing the Doctor-Clara partnership as a whole.

Of course like most partnerships it got off to a rocky start, and it broke apart midway through Series 8, only to reform stronger than ever. Only for Clara to betray the Doctor in her grief over Danny. But then the Doctor forgave her and the two reunited … again, stronger than ever.

It got to the point where I am surprised that at some point in Series 9 they didn’t have the two complete each other’s sentences.

Which, of course, makes it all the more ironic, and tragic, that this wonderful partnership came to such a sudden end because of a lack of communication. It was foreshadowed throughout the season that Clara wanted Twelve to tell her the rules - even after an unknown number of years by his side, she still didn’t know them all. He clearly never got around to it, instead becoming fixated on her safety and the possibility of one day losing her. And he never told her about Ashildr, never warned her that she wasn’t to be trusted. If he’d told her some of the rules - maybe she wouldn’t have taken the risk with the tattoo. Maybe they’d have been able to stay together - not just as a couple, but as a team.

One other thing: cast your mind across the 2005-2015 era of the series and you realize something: from the time Clara!Prime and Eleven met in Bells of Saint John through to Hell Bent, it was always just the two of them. Rose had to share with Adam, Mickey and Jack; Martha had to share with Jack; Donna had to share with everybody; Amy was part of her own “Team TARDIS” with Rory (and River). A few guest-stars aside, and remembering that Danny refused to become a companion, it was only Clara and the Doctor. This rarely occurred even in the original run.

I’ve been meaning to post this for ages now, this is a TARDIS bookshelf I made for a school project. 

It about 1.2 meters high, the windows and lamp at the top light up, (the switch and circuitry are inside a hollowed book) as well as having two hidden compartments. (Bigger on the inside!)

One is a drawer at the top, accessed by pulling up the lamp, the other is a hidden compartment, accessed using magnets on metal plates inlaid into the drawer bottom.

Hope you like it!

In an effort to cheer Clara up on Christmas Day, her TARDIS projects a hologrammatic image of the Doctor wearing antlers, yelling after a group of carollers to “get a real job”.

Caught completely off-guard by the spectacle, Clara laughs until tears form at the corner of her eyes. But then the real tears start, and they don’t stop for the longest time.

Doctor Who Clock

Finally, after two weeks of hard work developing this clock design for my Teaching Technology course at university, I have finished the final product!

The blue paint probably could have been a little darker and the smaller cogs glued on a bit lopsided, but given that the whole project was due today, I think I did pretty well.
