So, I have this marvelous theory about what’s happening to the Doctor (based mostly on the events of Asylum of the Daleks) – and it, and the trailer for the Christmas special, lie beneath the cut.

Yes, I was at the NYC premier and it was brilliant.  No, I can’t say a word about it, of course, but it is an amazing episode.  Make sure you catch it, on the 1st, when I’ll be watching it again.

Timey-wimeness of course, means that the Pond Life mini-series that is supposed to lead up to the episode, Asylum of the Daleks, will have to be watched out of order, but I look forward to seeing how they get to where they are in the start of the episode.

I’ve written up notes on the episode because I am full to bursting with wild speculation for WHAT IT ALL MEANS, but I can’t say a word until next week.  Man, do I have some theories as to where this season’s going…

 

Circular Gallifreyan cufflinks for Space (spase) and Time

Another set of cufflinks – this time in the fictional language of circular Gallifreyan

My flurry of 3d printed cufflink creation continues – and again I’m posting the Doctor Who inspired ones (not the ones inspired by my work, because some include art that’s not public yet).  These cufflinks have ‘circular Gallifreyan‘ on them – a non-official, fictional writing method inspired by Doctor Who.

Translation below.

TARDIS shaped cufflinks

My printed, painted, TARDIS shaped cufflinks.

Not much more to say, but that one evening I despaired over not having TARDIS cufflinks, and by the time I left for work the next morning, I was wearing the above pair.  Printed on the 3d printer, sanded, smoothed with acetone-plastic slurry, undercoated, painted, drybrushed and glued!  Easy peasy.

To get us properly excited in anticipation of the new season in autumn, the BBC has released the (non-teaser) trailer for series 7 of Doctor Who.  That is all.

Silicone mold and uncolored TARDIS lollypop

Though melting in the humidity, and remarkably un-blue, this is a very tasty TARDIS

Not long now until the second half of the Doctor Who season starts up again – and I admit to being a bit Who-mad about it all.  I’ve made miniature TARDISes, TARDIS cake-pops, and now (and my most difficult challenge yet) – TARDIS lollipops, with homemade silicone molds from 3d printed positives.

Six 3d printed TARDISes iterations

Versions 01 to 06, in my TARDIS printing iteration

I’m still having fun with the best toy in the world – my 3d printer!  This week, I decided to try to make a tiny, light up, TARDIS model – ideally to fit on one of my hair clips.  At the moment, the LEDs are too big, so the model above is approx 5cm tall – way too big for a hair clip.

Wait!  Turn HD on.  Yes, that’s right.  Wait for it to stream, turn the volume up a little and bask in the first full trailer for the next Doctor Who season.  Scary clowns, masked children, astronaut helmets, explosions and pirate ships, ghosts, monsters and one solitary, dangerous, deadly, gun.

“Look how cool this stuff is!”

Roll on Easter, and the start of the new season.  Roll it on indeed.

Corridor from the episode "The Impossible Planet", 10th Doctor, all rights BBC.

Corridor from the Doctor Who episode "The Impossible Planet"

Over at the Den of Geek, Martin Anderson once wrote of his love of Sci-Fi movie corridors, and mentioned that normally that sort of confession got him crickets and tumbleweed.

Well, Sir – I too love a juicy slice of sci-fi corridor!  Those seemingly inconsequential, often ignored, portals from scene to scene – that connective tissue that serves to further underline that THIS is actually connected to THAT, and not just two places lost in time and space (like London Underground stations).
