There are few things more distinctively British than Doctor Who and Blur. Inspired by an idea from his 9-year-old son, DJ Phil B combined the Doctor Who theme with Blur’s Parklife, and tossed in a little of The Timelords/The KLF’s Doctorin’ the TARDIS. Like the TARDIS itself, this mashup is bigger on the inside.
Awesome Doctor Who
Stephen’s 8×6 Workshop created this silly low-budget short film about a man who protects a prehistoric creature who also happens to be a tool from his workshop. But when the baby calipersaurus cries out, its parents aren’t too happy with the situation. We love the TARDIS sound effects. (Thanks, Steph!)
You could bring your car to a professional tuning shop to give its engine more power, or you could upgrade it with a Dilithium warp drive, an FTL jump unit, or a 1.21 gigawatt Flux Capacitor. DarkStarLab has you covered with their series of stick-on chrome plastic car badges inspired by classic sci-fi propulsion systems.
Fans of Doctor Who will be happy to hear that the good doctor’s archenemies the Daleks are getting their own cartoon. The five-part CGI series will arrive on the Doctor Who YouTube channel in November 2020 as part of Time Lord Victorious, a story that intertwines between video, audio, books, comics, and more.
While Doctor Who’s TARDIS is bigger on the inside, this coffee mug is just plain big. This jumbo ceramic mug looks like a TARDIS that’s about to explode; its walls bulging out from the pressure wave. It holds a whopping 64oz of liquid, more than enough for all your travels through time and space.
“Equipped with a sonic screwdriver and a psychic paper – two devices with the power to speed up the plot.” Screen Junkies takes on the long-running BBC sci-fi series with two Honest Trailers. The first one pokes fun at the modern day version, while the second roasts the classic.
“Sometimes I see things need fixin’… I do what I can.” Spend a minute getting to know the 13th Doctor. Jodie Whittaker’s take on the Time Lord seems a whole lot less snarky about saving the universe than Peter Capaldi did. The new Doctor arrives on BBC on October 7, 2018.
George C Music has been creating alternative versions of the Doctor Who theme music, to approximate what it might have sounded like if created by other musicians. We can’t decide if we like the Kraftwerk or the John Carpenter version best. The swing jazz is cool too.
Anyone who watches Doctor Who knows that their favorite doc will eventually die and come back to life with a new actor in their place. The Garo Studios looks at the more recent Doctors’ facing their inevitable fates. Capaldi isn’t long for the universe either.
A brief look Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat’s final season, as Doc No. 12 is joined by a new companion – a young woman from planet Earth (surprise) named Bill, played with Spice Girl like enthusiasm by Pearl Mackie. Bonus points for the Wilhelm Scream at 0:32.
A brief demonstration of the shockingly good audio capabilities of a $5 Raspberry Pi Zero computer, as the bargain priced computer replicates the sounds and music of the iconic Doctor Who theme music. Remember when you needed a $1000 synthesizer to do this?
