After tonight’s Doctor Who, I found myself unexpectedly delighted by these blink-and-you’ll-miss-‘em cameo appearances by Captain John Hart and Abslom Daak in the trailer for Time Heist next week.

Sadly, this means I’m now going to be unavoidably disappointed when the next episode is NOT actually about these two cavorting around the galaxy, killing Daleks with chainswords and being shamelessly homoerotic. If it’s any comfort, in an alternate universe somewhere, I’m sure they’ve got their own spin-off series already, and I bet the musical numbers alone are worth the Netflix subscription…

Project Mini-Who: Redraw The Companions reaches the Second Doctor’s era, with a rendition of the crew that I would call Team Memory Wipe, but alas, I fear the topic might yet be a little too sensitive.
By the way, if you’re keen to know how much progress I’m making with this redrawing thing, I’m adding a sticker version of each companion to my Redbubble store as I go: you can check out the ones I’ve already drawn here.

Ten Exciting Concepts for a Doctor Who Theme Restaurant

  1. The Impossible Grill 
    The same order keeps coming back to your table again and again. But why?
  2. Pizza Hath 
    Family fun with a bubbling jar of tomato and mozzarella stapled to your face.
  3. Daleks Inn, Manhattan 
    The only authentic Skaro-style pub in New York. Scary.
  4. The Zarbicue Shack 
    Spicy wings and legs, and plenty of ‘em!
  5. Krispy Kroll Doughnuts 
    Delicious fried rings of tentacle with Swampy Sprinkles. Yum.
  6. Fang Rock Café 
    Packed with charming memorabilia including dismembered corpses, green jelly and lost contact lenses.
  7. Ooders 
    Tacky bar where the staff wear uniforms designed to show off their shapely hind brains.
  8. The Bistro Below 
    Digest your dinner before a giant star-whale digests you.
  9. The Veg of Destruction 
    Money-saving eatery where you get shut in a room and pelted with broccoli for 50 minutes.
  10. TGI Doomsday’s 
    Delightfully romantic until your dining partner gets forcibly ejected midway through your meal and is left sobbing against the wall outside.
Project Mini-Who: Redraw The Companions is still chugging ahead, and to prove it, here’s Team TARDIS, version 1.0!
Since I started with new-school Who, I’ve now gone back to the very start and intend to work my way forwards, Doctor by Doctor. The fact that this method allows me lots of time to figure out exactly how many zillions of companions the Eighth Doctor has had and what the heck they all looked like is just a convenient coincidence…

Attention shoppers! The fabulous folk at Redbubble are currently offering 15% OFF EVERYTHING if you use the coupon code GET15 when you check out. The code is valid until midnight on Tuesday 2nd September so you’ve got all weekend to shop.

So if you’d like to buy anything from my Redbubble shop, including t-shirts, stickers, posters, cards, throw pillows and tote bags, this is a great time for a spot of well-deserved self-indulgence…

We now interrupt this Tumblr for a message from our Sontaran sponsor.

Project Mini-Who: Redraw The Companions continues apace, and just in time for the start of the new series, I’ve finished my set of new-school post-2005 companions and other comrades. Here they all are, along with their Doctors.

My Redbubble store now features this design as a shirt, print, card, tote bag or cushion. Plus stickers of everybody are also available!

Because there are so many potential teams and pairings that can be made from all these mini-folk, I am happy to take requests via my ask-box for:

  • icons/userpics - let me know which characters you’d like (up to three) and what size you want the icon to be (eg. 100 x 100 px for Livejournal, 400 x 400 px for Twitter profiles, etc.)
  • shirts/postcards/stickers/phone cases featuring more than one character - please specify which combo you’d like to buy.

I can’t promise I’ll manage every request but I’ll certainly try my best.

My ask box is also the place if you’d like to enthusiastically argue that I really ought to draw Astrid Peth or Craig Owens or anyone else post-2005 that the Doctor has snogged. As for companions for the First Doctor through to the Eighth Doctor, please watch this swirly space vortex as patiently as you can…

I’m currently working on rounding out my mini-Doctor Who collection with mini-companions, all freshly redrawn for a fancier internet age! Admittedly it’s going to take me a while to work through the full set, but I do plan to get there… eventually.
In the meantime, to prove that I’m making progress, here’s a shiny new mini-Donna. She’ll take a salute, if there’s one on offer. (And you can also buy her as a sticker or card.)

According to bbcone, Doctor Who leeks are being maliciously posted all over Tumblr. While they are dealing with this situation, I thought I’d show viewers what to watch out for. Stay safe out there, veg-lovers…

Doctor Who episode titles on London shop and street signs: Old School Edition! I also compiled a New School Edition if you missed it. Can you track down any more?

Doctor Who episode titles on London shop and street signs. Sadly nobody’s opened a nightclub called The Sound of Drums yet, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time. Can you find any others?

Edited to add: there’s now an Old-School Edition too.

Because I’ve recently redrawn all the mini-Doctors in order to turn them into merchandise, I’ve now made a new set of Doctor icons, for anyone who has a use for such things. You can find them on my Livejournal.

0tralala shared this picture of his personal plastic Dalek collection, and I thought they looked good enough to eat. At last, an adversary you can nibble between series without ruining your plot arc…

The Twelfth Doctor now has an official costume, so at last I’ve been able to update my Redbubble store to include mini-Twelve products! The following stuff is now on sale:
