‘Doctor Who’s Day Roundup: The Eleventh Year
Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a seasonal swipe across the last week in Whovian social media creativity.
And we begin this week with a celebration of Matt Smith’s TARDIS tenure. Or Elevenure, to be precise.
April 4 was the 11th anniversary of “The Eleventh Hour,” the story that properly marked the arrival of the Eleventh Doctor, and this is something fans were not slow to note:
And he even got his own Sixth Doctor credits, although YouTube being what it is, that was bound to happen at some point anyway:
Here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week:
• This excellent sketch showing “Heaven Sent” from a Whovian YouTuber’s point of view:
• This didn’t happen. But it should have:
• The Doctor Who spin-off series we didn’t know we needed until now. Let’s call it 'All Back to Wilf's:
• The Weeping Angels are trying to take the TARDIS, but this time, there’s a whole new fan-made score to change the mood:
• Eight and Lucie; one happy, one... not:
• For an interstellar traveler and alien, the Doctor can be VERY English sometimes:
• A very brief Lego animation of a Dalek attack, which quite ruins one man’s morning walk:
• This fellow will make sure nothing like that can happen again:
• The return of the Master, but which one? Here he is taking his rightful place at the beginning of the Doctor Who TV movie:
• And here he is again, popping up in the latest Big Finish production:
• And dancing with Thirteen:
• And a future incarnation appears to have taken over the Bad Place, finger crown and all:
• A fan-animated (fanimated?) Thirteen:
• Let’s not make a portmanteau word out of fan-art though, OK?
• How about the Doctor Who theme given a thorough kicking / makeover (delete according to musical preference) by rowdy punks with aggravation in mind? Strap in!
• And speaking of all things Eleven, how about we end this week with a 45-minute long video taken of a recent GalaxyCon conversation involving his former companions Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), River Song (Alex Kingston) and a fleeting visit from Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) — who is still having trouble with her Wi-Fi:
