I don’t like Dr. Who, but I also don’t like writing articles on Friday afternoons. So I’ll throw a bone to our Whovian fans and give the good doctor his one Gabbing Geek article a year.
Dr. Who has graced our screens for over 50 years. That’s right, 50 years! Can you believe it. And in all the time, the 12 different Doctors have racked up some very iconic villains. From the Daleks to the Cybermen, we take a look at the most notable enemies from the Dr. Who franchise. Check out the villainous list after the break:
Hello Doctor Who fans, have we got a jewelry box for you. Redditor ashe7 created this aluminum TARDIS jewelry box which separates into three sections—two of which are lined with adhesive felt to hold jewelry.
Don’t get too excited – because this is a one of a kind piece that currently isn’t for sale. But if we all unite our sonic screwdrivers, maybe we can convince Ashe7 to make a few more for us to buy! Whadda-ya-say!?
Doctor Who fans will appreciate this tiny addition to their wardrobe. Think of this like a Marry Poppins bag, it’s much bigger on the inside, and can cary all your geek girl needs. Like that horse you don’t want to leave at home, or you know, an extra wardrobe for those “oh crap, I’m in the jungle” moments. We’ve all been there – now you have a purse to keep you on your toes. See more of this not so tiny Tardis after the break:
Donny – you’re out of your element if you don’t think this is the best Doctor Who / Big Lebowski mashup you’ve ever seen! I mean, he’s the Dood – So that’s what you call him. You know, that or, uh, His Doodeness, or uh, Dooder, or El Dooderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.(via Phil Vanelli)
Say hello to the Wee Little Stitches Etsy shop, where all your geek sewing & cross stitch dreams can come true. The shop was born out of love for needle and thread and the desire to stitch things which are not only simple and quick, but which reflect geek pop culture tastes. Shop owner Jacqueline said her business is a creative partnership. She goes on to say; “Our friends and family must be getting tired of the number of times we turn to each other and say ‘you know what would make a good cross-stitch pattern…?‘ We really do sleep, breathe, and eat stitching!”

One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you…. three, four, better check your floor…..for mini LEGO bricks, because stepping on those at night hurts like hell! Thanks to Etsy shop CustomBricks, you too can have tiny nightmarish LEGO figures just hanging out, ready to terrorize you in the night. Horror figurines not your thing? No problem. CustomBricks also has a few non-threatening characters like Dr. Who – and V from V for Vendetta. Well – depends on your definition of non-threatening. AmIRight? Check our more mini figures after the break:
Time will never be the same with this super geek clock. Thanks to Etsy seller LetterThings, this little gem replaced all the numbers with geeky references. Truth be told that once we get a new Doctor Who, noon/midnight will be no more, but let’s just take this one day at a time. No need to rush the clock, AmIRight? And if this timepiece isn’t enough, check out the Harry Potter clock after the break:
Spring is in the air! At least here in Texas it’s in the air, and I have the allergies to prove it! But with spring flowers come April showers and all the weddings we can choke on. But – alas – don’t scoff too fast, because as a geek nation we are now all being represented by the best of car decals to exclaim your love and devotion. Drive away proclaiming your new nuptuals with these awesome themed “Just Married” wedding vinyl window cling decal by Anthony Herrera Designs ($25). You have to see all the geekiness after the break (unfortunately, cars not included):
From time to time we run across amazing Fan-Art, and this is no exception. Say hello to the beautifully drawn & colored “New Who” from artist Janey-Jane. If you listen to our podcast, you would know that between Ryan, Watson, and I, Dr. Who was a geek blind spot. To ensure we covered this blind spot we all agreed to watch the series starting from the beginning with the 9th Doctor (because that makes sense). And thanks to that recent watching, we can adequately identify the fist two characters as The Doctor & Rose. (Please don’t ask us to identify the rest, we’re not there yet). But all credit goes back to Janey-Jane. Whovians: Can you identify them all?
