Thank you my good sir.
You have set my inner nerd bones all a-tingle! 😀27 February 2014 at 03:32 #25805CrazyManInARectangularPrism @crazymaninarectangularprism
So…..idea….came to me randomly….I want to see what you all think.
The Doctor has a seemingly infinite knowledge base and (according to the cybermen in “Nightmare In Silver”) has incredible processing speed in his brain. So here’s what I think. What if a Timelord’s head is also bigger on the inside and, as such, has a HUGE brain? It would explain so much.27 February 2014 at 15:52 #25828The Krynoid Man @thekrynoidman
Here’s a video tribute I made for the Third Doctor a made a couple of years ago although I didn’t get around to putting it online until recently27 February 2014 at 17:16 #25834
So over the past few months, my co-producer and I have been putting together our own fan audio series. We have two stories (7 half-hour episodes) completed and on YouTube, with our third on the way and the fourth soon to enter production. Our emphasis is on having fun with other fans, so if anyone seeing this would like to get involved, don’t hesitate to contact me, all right?
We’ll be looking into a proper podcasting website in the near future. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our tribute to our favourite time traveller.28 February 2014 at 00:15 #25853tresnips @tresnips
Hi new to forums looking for opinions I will be going to meet matt smith vip style at comic con but was going as the 10th doctor, no good? yes or no?28 February 2014 at 11:42 #25858
Are you worried about an etiquette faux pas? Worry not. It would seem Smith likes a bit of variety in cosplayers, and had been known to organise impromptu photo shoots at SDCC, like this one with KG in 2011.
The big question is whether your ten look beats the bloke in this picture. That’s bloody scary.28 February 2014 at 18:56 #25881
My word. That Ten is a dead ringer. I’m often amazed by the dedication of cosplayers.1 March 2014 at 07:28 #25907ajgreen1971 @ajgreen1971
Can I use this thread to mention my ebook, Memories of Who, which gathers together letters from dozens of minor Doctor Who actors about their time working on the show?
The book is available on Kindle from the Amazon store, links for all the countries are on the website here;2 March 2014 at 15:30 #26026

I am new to the forum. I must admit that I had never seen an episode of Dr Who (the ‘new’ who that is) until last year. Around September time I got caught up in the 5oth anniversary hullabullula and decided to buy the entire Blu-ray box set when it came out in November. I then proceeded to watch all 112 episodes in the run up to the 50th episode and what a treat that was. I absolutely fell in love with it and can’t believe I never watched the show up to that point.
So much so that i instantly went and combined my new found love with one of my oldest – Lego. As I am sure many of you are aware Lego have recently allowed Dr Who submission back on their fan based cuusoo site and I have since loaded mine up there. And thus to the crux of why I signed up to try and allow other Dr who fans to see this (and other great submissions that are on the site) and ask that if any of you are keen on seeing Lego Dr Who then please pass the word about and have a vote. – http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/59409
I might also hang about and keep an eye on any of the 12th Dr news that might hit here first, already spotted some images that I will go and have a look at now 🙂
PS I hope i posted this in the correct section.

I am new to the forums and a new fan of the show. I have wanted to get into Doctor Who for a long time, but I always told myself if I was to do it, I would do it right and start all the way back at the beginning. This task intimidated me, but I finally started it and I am really digging it. Working my way up from the first Doctor. Anyways, as I was watching episode after episode, I fell in love with the theme and, as a musician who makes cover videos on youtube, I decided to do my take on the theme. I wanted to share it with you as my introduction to the forums. Hope you enjoy!5 March 2014 at 21:44 #26146Monochrome Dimension @monochromedimension
@mantabu – Welcome to the forums, and also to Doctor Who! I really liked your cover, that was very cool! You’re very talented. I too adore the theme tune, and enjoy remixes/covers of it as well.
Anyhow, glad to know you’re enjoying the series, and you’ve started from the beginning! The First Doctor is one of my favourites.6 March 2014 at 17:08 #26176glenbnricker @glenbricker
Hi everybody, Lego Doctor Who is at 7300+ and we only need 10,000 to get it to review. I hope you will vote to help make this happen7 March 2014 at 20:37 #26214

My friend made these two awesome Doctor Who related fan art pieces. We’ve been trying to get some exposure but haven’t had too much luck yet. If you like these I’ve listed her etsy links below each image. We’ve tried to made both of them affordable. Thank you for looking 🙂12 March 2014 at 15:51 #26360iamwill @iamwill
I thought you might enjoy a 360 panorama I shot of the TARDIS back in 2009.14 March 2014 at 15:44 #26400
I’m thinking of making, well I am making, an ultimate Doctor Who Timeline that features ever incarnation of the Doctor – canon, non-canon and fanon. I’ve got most of the basics down into one single line, adding various non-canon Doctors now. I’ve started looking for Fanon Doctors but the Doctor Who Expanded Wikia is a mess and in dire need of a clean up. Does anyone now of any notable Fanon Doctors I should include?
On a side not, does anyone know where I can get my hands on the Hayakawa Bunko Doctor Who books? I’ve tried to find them but it seems impossible! The illustrations portray the Doctor differently (and the TARDIS is red) and I was going to add them (there is two Doctors I think) to the Timeline.14 March 2014 at 15:48 #2640215 March 2014 at 10:35 #2641415 March 2014 at 10:59 #26416
Welcome, and that sounds like quite a task you’ve set yourself.
On the Japan books, probably only e-bay and specialist collectors to get hold of them. They’d cost a pretty penny I suspect. This article on the site features four of the covers (including red police telephone box).
Basically they are just translations for five of the original target novelisations of the TV serial. One for the first Doctor (the Daleks) and four stories of the Third Doctor. The cover that is missing features another unknown female pointing a gun.
The subject of Canon in Doctor Who is tricky. It doesn’t really have one, just what is recognised by individual fans. You could consider it individual Fanon if you wish. There really are no notable Fanon Doctors that have ever gained traction. There are only a couple of licensed “alternative” takes like the Big Finish Doctor Who unbound series.15 March 2014 at 11:11 #26417
Yeah, this timeline got very long very quickly. It was going well: adding Unbound Doctors, Nelvana Doctors, Shalka, Curse of Fatal Death and then all the fan doctors started to be very vague on where there Doctors actually are in the timeline. Not to mention that I don’t really like any fan based Doctor Who series I’ve seen. A bit of an exaggeration, maybe; I guess some are okay.
And those Japanese Books! Man, I wish I could read them! Just to see the arkwork and how different cultures interpret things differently.
And Canon, shmanon. You can’t really not have non-canon in a universe that adopts a multi-verse theory anyway.
On that, I want to share a little detail from my timeline (which will I might post in devaintart) is this: Dr. Who (Peter Cushing) is the Meta-Crisis 10th Doctor. I guess you might have heard that before but when I saw Meta-Crisis trapped in a parallel universe, there where too many similarities for me to ignore.
Anyway, that’s what I think. My timeline is full of little connections like that (or at least, I think so).15 March 2014 at 20:13 #26441

My friends and I have worked really hard on a Youtube parody series and just want to get some opinions on it to how we can improve it and just to make the community happy 😀 It’s called “Ponies, Humans, and Boxes” and involves Doctor Whooves and his companion Derpy Hooves traveling through different dimensions, landing in various locations such as City 17 from Halflife and the Metal Gear universe. Hilarity and chaos ensues soon after. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0n6Rq9vGgA418 March 2014 at 16:30 #26499

Can’t recall anyone posting this before, but forgive me if they have…21 March 2014 at 17:17 #26520
This site contains all the covers of the Target Books and includes the Japanese covers and illustrations that I wad looking for.21 March 2014 at 17:25 #26521
I’m still quite taken aback by the differences in the Japanese covers. I worry a bit that on the cover of the Japanese edition of The Daleks, Susan (or whom I assume to be Susan) resembles a character from the early works of Go Nagai.21 March 2014 at 17:32 #26522
On a completely different topic, does anyone know where I can download th Scene of Day of the Doctor where the two Tardises land to help War press the button?
Also something I thought I’d share, I was watching The Stolen Earth and Caan says No More. Thought that was quite cool.
And, this was one that made me feel like a genius and makes my Doctor Who timeline for like a dream, remember 4’s last words? When I thought about how 4 could get more regens and this crossed my mind I nearly jumped up around. Id you don’t remember then it’s ‘It’s the end, but the MOMENT has been prepared for.’ Mind blown I bet.21 March 2014 at 17:57 #26523
That is quite eye-opening from a retroactive point of view. Although I’m certain the intent was different at the time, it’s very intriguing from today’s standpoint.21 March 2014 at 20:32 #26524dmanley @dmanley

I’m not sure where else to post this question so I’ll do it here. You probably know that I’m making an ultimate Doctor Who Timeline but I’m also beginning to write fanfiction (yes, I’m one those guys) and it has all the Doctors being played by (or looking like) completely different people (Ben Kingsley plays the 7th Doctor and Sean Bean plays the 9th, for instance). But I’m struggling to think of any British 1960s actors (I want the eras to kind of match up because I’m strange). Does anyone have any good ideas about how COULD have played the 1st Doctor? The only one I’ve found that I sort of like is Basil Rathbone but I’ve seen very little and I’m not sure. And I was going to use Peter Cushing but he’s my 2nd Doctor.
But thanks for any ideas.4 April 2014 at 16:35 #267314 April 2014 at 16:38 #26732Bluesqueakpip @bluesqueakpip
@mobius64 – the two people well known to have been possible alternates to William Hartnell were Hugh David (who later became a director and ended up directing on the show) and Geoffrey Bayldon (who has the distinction of being offered both First Doctor and Second Doctor).
Otherwise, you really want 1950’s actors – because the actors we think of as ‘1960s’ were all beginning their careers in 1963. Michael Caine, for example, was working on his ‘introducing’ role in Zulu.
The BFI’s short intro to British Film in the 1950’s might give you some ideas.4 April 2014 at 22:15 #26734
I’ll second Bayldon as a choice. I thought he was great as the Crow Man and Catweazle.5 April 2014 at 12:00 #26738
Years ago I can remember someone on another forum writing a really good interpretation of the exchange in the TARDIS between the Doctors in the Three Doctors imagining Geoffrey Bayldon as 1, Valentine Dyall as 2, and Ron Moody as 3 (all considered for the roles). A really different dynamic as she’d pitched the dialogue and personalities towards major parts they’d played in other productions.
Two was far more domineering/commanding (it’s quite hard seeing Dyall as anything like 2, but easy to see him as a better 6.) Moody seemed written as he played the Wizard Rothgo in “Into the Labyrinth”, so more puckish and oblique – like a cross between 2 and 7.
So I’d guess if you’re trying to imagine other actors in the role, it’s best to have seen them to try to capture the voice, etc, and essentially what they would have brought to the role.5 April 2014 at 15:16 #26743
I had though about Geoffrey Bayldon but he played the alternate 1st Doctor in Auld Mortality and Storm of Angles so I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use him because he is so similar to William Hartnell, or that’s what I remember anyway. I wanted a really stern and serious Doctor and then he’d become a more gentle and fatherly Doctor in his 2nd Regeneration (Peter Cushing as Dr. Who is where I got the inspiration). And Hugh David seems a bit young to be the kind of Doctor I was looking for.
This is what I was thinking though
1st Doctor – ?
2nd Doctor – Peter Cushing
3rd Doctor – Christopher Lee
4th Doctor – Patrick Stewart
5th Doctor – Alan Rickman
6th Doctor – ?
7th Doctor – Ben Kingsley
8th Doctor – Robert Carlyle
9th Doctor – Sean Bean
10th Doctor – Ioan Gruffudd
11th Doctor – Idris Elba
12th Doctor – Suranne Jones
Thanks for helping though.
