So I was watching the new John Lewis Christmas advert and I couldn’t shake the idea that the old man on the moon could be The Doctor…so I decided to re-edit the advert to see what it would be like if it had been The Doctor. Would love to know what you fellow Whovians think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIHVtQ69s5w9 November 2015 at 19:37 #46674anthonykiely @anthonykiely

Oooh, a shiny new thread.
I made a new jacket. (Well I bought a jacket and made it Doctor Who)
nothing on the back as of yet.13 November 2015 at 11:22 #46872
Hello, I am new to the forum, I have joined the forum specifically to pick your collective brains about a little project I am working on.
My first question is this; If the Doctor were to send someone a letter, what kind of stationery do you think he would use? Would he have personalised stuff with letterheads and watermarks etc. or would it just be plain?
Thank you13 November 2015 at 14:16 #46875DenValdron @denvaldron
Why would he send a letter. He’d more likely send an interactive memory tag. An innocuous little bit of paper. Touch it, and you suddenly have a vision of yourself in a room with the Doctor, where he tells you something. It would have limited interactivity, in the sense that if you asked questions, it would answer them to some extent, and if you didn’t ask questions, it would just continue until it delivered all the information.
Or you could try the Impossible Astronaut, where he does send out letters in regular form for a reunion.13 November 2015 at 14:18 #46876PhaseShift @phaseshiftTime Lord
what kind of stationery do you think he would use?
Somebody else’s stationery, the thieving git! 🙂
Seriously, he often uses what’s to hand, like the TARDIS blue paper and envelopes he got from Craig to send his chums an invitation to his death in Series 6.
He nicked Ministry paper to falsify an introduction letter from the Prime Minister in Curse of Fenric, and jotted a note to Leonardo da Vinci on the back of one of his sketches.
There was a suggestion in spin off media that he had letterheads for his I.M. Foreman, Scrap Metal Merchant cover while he was on Earth in the Sixties (which would make sense).
When he got all official at home in The Deadly Assassin, he used blank paper, and signed using his official Prydonian Order seal, screen grab below:13 November 2015 at 15:18 #46879

Poking fun at Daleks is a fantastically dangerous business…3 December 2015 at 18:50 #48587samiamuc @samiamuc
So I wasn’t exactly sure where to post this, but it’s my idea for a very interesting episode.
Many of us who might call our selves whovians have dreamt and imagined that the Doctor would be real, and if so, what it would be like. I have devised a theory that, to me, makes sense.
As we all know, the TARDIS, to soem extent, has a mind of its own. So what if the TARDIS, using an invisible, undetectable (especially by the doctor), personal-cameraman-like drone to film the Doctor’s entire life and adventures, and even, under the TARDIS’s control, go back in time and film other things, compile the adventures into shorter stories, and sending them, somehow, into a parallel universe, in which the Doctor does not exist. That parallel universe would be the very universe which you and I are living in at this very moment. You say, “But that’s absurd! Everybody knows that Dr Who is filmed and produced by BBC!” But no, what if the TARDIS sent it to BBC. And all of the actors who claim to have “acted” in the show are actually just the alternate/parallel equivalents/look-alikes of the characters in the Doctor’s universe. And all of the “props” BBC has and would display to make us think that the Doctor is fake aren’t “props” at all. No, instead they are actual alien head, replicas somehow beamed/teleported over by the TARDIS.
That’s just the backstory. An amazing story for an episode, maybe even ad two or three episode story, would be the Doctor discovering that and traveling, somehow, to the parallel universe (that being our own). Oh, there are so many amazing things you could do with that. You could make a whole season, a whole spin-off series about that. What do you think of it? I know there’s at least one flaw, though: all of the actor’s claiming to have played the Doctor. I mean, there’s like, eight or something of them still alive in this universe, and I don’t know how it woudl seem if the doctor had parallel self for each and every incarnation.3 December 2015 at 23:03 #48593tommo @tommo

my friend(an amateur artist) was just starting out on society6 (society6.com/destinialbond) and I pestered him to do a DW drawing.
I just ordered the shirt and the print of the drawing. Have bought art from society6 before and the items they sell are pretty good quality. Do help support him and maybe if it sells well enough I can get him to do more DW art. Thanks!11 December 2015 at 16:44 #49280anthonykiely @anthonykiely

hey guys I’m new to this site but if you could help me out with a project for school it would be really helpful, just answer these questions if you could help me
q1: What made you decide to watch Doctor Who?
q2: How do you think Doctor who has influenced the culture and people of england?
q3: How/why do you think the show has grown to be so popular all over the world?
q4: How has the show left an impact on you personally, or do you have any special stories that have to do with the show?
if you have the time to answer these I’d really appreciate it!3 January 2016 at 21:21 #49972samiamuc @samiamuc
1: My friends talked about it, read about it, and then noticed that it was on Netflix.
2: I live in the US, so I don’t know, but I’d say it had influenced it pretty well.
3: Well, I’m a Christian, so I believe that everyone has a “God-shaped hole” in them that only the true God and fill. However, non-Christians try to fill it with other “supernatural” stuff, such as ghost movies/stories and science fiction and fantasy. Everyone can feel that there’s something else out there besides us – some know that it’s the spiritual world, others prefer to believe that it is physical things, such as aliens. I think it’s also popular because it is, for the most part, a pretty clean show, and people are obviously intrigued by the idea of space and time travel.
4: I have made the mistake of sneakily watching the show when I should have been doing my schoolwork, so it has caused a terrible decrease in my grades.10 January 2016 at 03:25 #50061Anonymous @
Just wanted to share my Part 1 video of the Dr who/River/Amy/Rory family portrait I am currently drawing.10 January 2016 at 21:54 #50066Anonymous @
I’ve created a Facebook Page to see what the ideal Doctor Who episode could look like and who knows maybe it could become a real one so come get a look and tell me what you think of this idea 😃18 January 2016 at 15:53 #50203NightFell @nightfell
Hello, I’m Fell from New Jersey, USA and I’m a new fan who is new to…well everything! I signed up here with hopes of meeting fellow fans and more fanart artists 🙂 To start things off, I want to share a drawing that I did recently, posted on my Tumblr
@tommo That’s some really nice graphite work! Can’t wait to see more art you do
And @marisaann, this may be too late but nevertheless!
Q1: What made you decide to watch Doctor Who? I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi and time travel novels and stories (e.g.; Star Wars and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series). In my search for new things to watch and read, I stumbled into Doctor Who completely on my own beginning with Nine a couple years ago though I stopped after the first season. When I finally picked up the show again late last year starting with Ten, that was it for me.
Q2: How do you think Doctor who has influenced the culture and people of england? Being from the US, I’m not exactly sure if I can give a fair or insightful answer to this- though I do know that it is a fixture in the tv show culture in America. There are at least two annual conventions dedicated to the fandom- Gallifrey One in California and Long Island Who in New York; both are widely attended. I think that says a lot.
Q3: How/why do you think the show has grown to be so popular all over the world? I think there has always been an allure to escape from reality by means of entertainment. It certainly helps that this is done through brillant story telling and memorable characters. Also the nature of Doctor Who with its ever-changing protagonist allows it to be a show that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Q4: How has the show left an impact on you personally, or do you have any special stories that have to do with the show? Show has helped me to enjoy the whismical and fanastic again. It’s been a long time since a series has rekindled that sense of wonder and tapped into excitement that gets lost in the day-to-day routine. For someone who freelances as an artist in her spare time, that fuel is SO necessary for creatives. For that reason, Ten will always be my first doctor- he was the one that made me see how brillant this show is.20 January 2016 at 18:27 #50288tk826 @tk826
For all of you really big Doctor Who fans this Canadian distributor sells a variety of Doctor Who merchandise that I’m sure you would enjoy as much as I do!!21 January 2016 at 21:06 #50310BradleyT2606 @bradleyt2606
Doctor Who-The life and times of Clara Oswald Has a massive Whovian who had to say thank you to Jenna Coleman for her brilliant performance. I made a video called Doctor Who-The life and times of Clara Oswald. It features clips from her whole time on the Tardis mixed with music from the show. Also at the end there’s unseen footage from the Doctor Who Festival where Jenna Coleman reflects on her time in Doctor Who😃!!!!!!!! I spent weeks making this video and I hope you enjoy it😝26 January 2016 at 20:42 #5053826 January 2016 at 20:43 #50539

Hello, Im new to the forum and would like to show off some work I have done with a Doctor theme. If you would, click on my profile picture and you will see a 8.5 x 11 leather Silhouette of Matt Smith’s version of the Doctor that I made. I can do other silhouettes from the show as well and the one shown on my profile goes for $100 plus shipping if anyone was interested.15 February 2016 at 01:20 #50972The Garnetto @garnetto1992
I have recently started a project that I think people here will enjoy. Its called “whovian sins”
for these of you familiar with cinemasins and the “everything wrong with” videos, it is my take on that, inspired by cinemasins and pokesins, to do one based on dr wh
if you are not familiar, it is a video where I go through episode by episode and point out the errors or illogical points as a lit of fun. It is worth noting that it isnt serious, it is some light hearted fun to show my love of the show.
Episode 1 is now available here, . Please have a watch and any feedback is welcomed. If you enjoy it, I plan on weekly updates, doing a new episode pretty much every week
thanks for your time and I hope you enjoy watching the videos as much as I enjoy making them.16 February 2016 at 18:20 #51007timelordylordy @timelordylordy

This is maybe not supposed to be posted here, but anyways, I need help for something.I am going to make a presentation about doctor who. We were told to make a thesis sentence/statement, and I chose “How has the time war affected the doctor?”. And I need help to find out how it affected his life after the time war, feeling lonely. guily..etc..And I would be so thankful for quotes or evidence that prove how it affetced him. Thanks for help<3<3<321 March 2016 at 22:18 #51403
Hello good question. As well as feeling guilty and lonely I also felt that he had a duty to help others (As a way of redeeming himself) if you watch The Unquiet Dead (series 1) the alien gelth lost their original form (or something!) due to the time war and the Doctor was determined to help them as a way of repaying them for what the war did to them. Also I think in cases it went to his head and he became a bit power mad if you watch The Waters of Mars then you’ll see David Tennant breaking all the rules because he feels that he can and that he is the “time lord victorious” so he can decide what the rules of time are because he is the last of the time lords.
I think Christopher Ecclestone’s doctor had lost all his faith in the good of the universe until he met Rose who supposedly softened him (I read that somewhere) so you can gradually see the old doctor coming back as you watch.
Not sure if this helped or not as the Russel T Davies years are not my speciality and I haven’t watched many of his episodes for a while so I can’t remember any quotes but I hope I could be of assistance!22 March 2016 at 00:34 #51404Anonymous @
a good question and I think @thedentistofdavros answered it well for you.
I would suggest you go to the Wiki boards of Dr Who and the Dr Who official site itself and check out our own threads on Chris Eccleston when RTD (Russel T Davies) first brought forth his vision 🙂
Then there’s the magnificent 50th anniversary DVD which you could purchase (or watch on Netflix if that’s still possible). This 80 min film with Smith, the War Doctor and Tennant concentrates on the answer to the question as does the final Matt Smith Christmas episode.
You could consider our own thoughts and comments on the matter when we watched the 50th anniversary -it might assist you considerably. In summary, you’d start with how the 10th Doctor is the one who ‘snogs’ his way thru this iteration -which surely sums up his way of coping with the effects of the Time War and how, after Rose leaves, it is virtually impossible for him to be alone -to which his later companion, Donna, refers.
Thereafter, Matt Smith, is the Doctor who ‘forgets,’ immersing himself in a childlike whirlpool of events and saving whomever he can. When he stays on Trenzalore to save the people and the children it’s his way of atoning for ending the Time War the way he believes he did -I think he would have stayed until his own death had the TLs not bestowed upon him ‘extra’ regenerations which caused him to defeat the roaming army of Daleks who were about to cast their final blow.
Certainly checking out the War Doctor -a lean, economical man, with little patience for the use of the sonic as a weapon (“what, are you going to build a cabinet at them?”) -amongst other things (including his ability to be alone and to accept his role as war Doctor) would also help as a study in contrary motion. His Doctor is the one who is ‘different’; who stands apart for all the necessary reasons and who, on that day, no longer played the part of the Doctor and was despised by the other Doctors for his actions-and yet, it’s the primary Judas question, who else, if not him?
You could, of course, Google the whole thing too -that works 🙂
Seriously, if you have a Kindle or access to Amazon there are no doubt some good books written by those who have followed the Doctor their whole lives and would have written, academically, about the role of the TW in the Doctor’s various iterations.
Puro and Son.22 March 2016 at 07:24 #51407
Thank you I think you answered very well as well! I love how you summed up the tenth doctor’s way of dealing with the trauma (snogging everyone’s face off!)
@ingrid17 the 50th anniversary is a good one to take a look at if you have the time as @puroandson suggested22 March 2016 at 11:04 #51409Ingrid20 @ingrid17
Thank you so much. This helped me so much<33 @thedentistofdavros @puroandson22 March 2016 at 17:05 #51412
