Four years. Three seasons. Two hearts. One mad man. Thank you, Matt Smith. Because of you, bow ties were never cooler.
This amazing Doctor Who TARDIS Projection Alarm Clock for fans of the hit BBC show Doctor Who projects the time and the Doctor Who logo onto your ceiling via a projector hole situated on the back. When the alarm goes off, the light flashes and it makes TARDIS sounds! This is one awesome alarm clock that all Whovians should own! Requires 3x “AAA” batteries, not included. The Doctor Who TARDIS Projection Alarm Clock stands approximately 4 1/2-inches tall.
Whattttt? how did I not know about this?
Quick note: the lines don’t have to point upwards and straight next to each other, you can point them in any direction you want.
I’m getting a tattoo in circular gallifreyan this week.
Here’s what doesn’t make sense. Why would Gallifreyan use english phonemes or any Earth phonemes? And aren’t these just English words represented through circles? Wouldn’t the word ‘bow’ look different in Time Lord because it’s not pronounced the same because it’s in a different language? Also who made this and does it have anything to do with the show or is it like fan-code?
These aren’t rhetorical accusatory questions, I think it would be cool to know. Did someone like pause a lot of episodes and chart the circles or did the show consult a linguist?
So I got curious after seeing your message and decided to research it. As far as I can tell it was created for Doctor Who in 2005 but was fan-made. (This may not be correct but it’s as much as I have found.) The farthest I could trace the source back was to Catherine Bettenbender. I assume that Gallifreyan is like any other language and the words would look different in the Time Lords actual language, so yes this translation is just English words represented through circles.
Hide. Now THIS is how you do a proper scary Doctor Who! Right there. Fantastic! This is actually the first episode that paid off for all the pre-air promotion. The ‘scariest’ story, you realise they say that every time when they’re about to air a new scary episode, don’t you?
If the majority of viewers cast a doubt on Neil Cross last time in the Rings episode, this time he absolutely nailed it. And this is actually his first story. They brought him back for the Rings story. Haven’t seen an episode with so many things happening since, like, forever. The birth to death of earth, the love story between Alec and Emma (did I got the names right?), the quarrel between Clara and the Tardis, the Eye of Harmony, witty lines from Clara, 10th space suit back, the Doctor being scared, and at the end of the day what a lovely twist! ‘Every lonely monster needs a companion’ (Rings a bell? As ‘Every fairy tail needs a good old-fashioned villain’ in Sherlock 203). Many little nods to the classic era. Well done! Neil Cross. Very well done indeed!
Jamie Payne. There were quite a lot shots that were stunning in this episode. Jamie Payne earned the credit without questions. Opening sequence gave me goose bumps. And the scene in the forrest? I’ve got hair stood up on my neck. That haven’t happened for a VERY long time in Doctor Who. Do think that chase scene lasted too long, though. Just cut it a couple of minutes down would work better for me.
Matt Smith and JLC continued being effortlessly wonderful. Funny enough, this is JLC’s first episode recorded. She’s an absolute joy to watch. The mystery around Clara continued. Pitty there was little revealed in her little fell-off with that old grumpy cow. Haha. The Tardis got an attitude. Wonder what’s gonna happen in the centre of the Tardis next week. Got no idea what Moffat’s been up to, but now I AM certain 50th anniversary is in the safe hands.
Tardis has gone funny now. Ever since Gaiman’s The Doctor’s Wife, her personality just grew stronger and stronger. Having that said, we’ll probably get the answer to why the Tardis exploded in Big Bang two-parter after all. If that’s the case, I mean, wow… Seriously, wow… I know Steven Moffat is a genius, but could anyone be that genius? Building up since day one all the way to the 50th anniversary? Wicked.
Eccleston will be back next week, featuring a voice o(╯□╰)o I know! But still, always happy to see someone from the past in DW. And I really hope they could throw some hints about who Clara is next week. Can’t be the Doctor’s daughter. Otherwise how could they possibly make that kiss not weired?
Tennant and Piper back for 50th anniversary. I just can’t stop smiling every time I see a picture of Tennant and Smith together. SO HAPPY. I’ve forgotten how much I enjoyed Tennant’s Doctor until I saw him on set. No matter how much I love Matt Smith now - yes, one does remember how one used to feel about him, Tennant will always be MY Doctor. Haven’t seen Piper on set yet. Hope she’s still got her accent.
Anyway, this is getting better and better every week. Keep going like that and 50th anniversary is gonna be amazing.
Seriously, after last night’s episode, how many of you are thinking about that theory?
So what if Clara is the Bad Wolf? That’ll make perfect sense. Remember Rose said ‘I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words. I scatter them in time and space.’ Just like Clara scattered across time and space.
And Moffat kept saying that in this series the Doctor’s biggest secret is in jeopardy. Well in that case, wouldn’t it be sensible that Rose once again sends out the warnings.
And now I’m seriously considering the possibility of Rose being ‘the woman in the shop’ who gave Clara the Tardis phone number.
The TARDIS and Clara have a relationship. Actually I don’t think we’ve talked about this in interviews before. It’s something that’s running through the series.
Instead of it being like, “Does so-and-so like Clara?” The TARDIS and Clara have a bit of a face-off. So, the Doctor is obviously bringing back somebody new. I think we’ve done a whole additional content scene of me talking to the TARDIS, and the TARDIS is making fun of Clara. They kind of have an argument. They’ve got a relationship individual to the Doctor where they have a dialogue.”
The Tardis making fun of Clara? Could Clara be another Tardis trapped in a human body? It would be fantastic for the Doctor having a Tardis as a companion in the 50th anniversary year.

As it happens, the introduction of Amelia Pond was not contingent on the arrival of the Eleventh Doctor. Speaking to Doctor Who Magazine, Steven Moffat has explained what his basic story arc for series five would have been if David Tennant stayed on and Matt Smith not been recruited.
Here’s his explanation:
I only had the roughest idea. Had David stayed for one final year, it would certainly have been his last, so my pitch was that it would start with the Tardis crashing in Amelia’s back garden – as now – and a terribly battered and bruised Tenth Doctor staggering out.
Amelia finds him, feeds him fish custard (no that was for Matt, it would have been something more Davidy) and generally helps him. But we, the audience, can see he’s in a truly bad way. Dying maybe. Eventually he heads back to his TARDIS, and flies off.
But when he returns – many years later for Amy – he seems perfectly fine, and indeed doesn’t remember any of those events…And of course over time, we realise what we saw was the Tenth Doctor at the end of his life, about to regenerate. Events that we return to in Episode 13…
One of the most interesting things about this are the implications for the relationship between Eleven and Amy, even Rory and River.
Either Eleven would never get to meet Amy and Rory, which would most likely have changed the River Song storyline profoundly, or he’d meet them after they already knew Ten.
