Cool Tardis papercraft models. I really like the steampunk version of Dr. Who’s Tardis. If you would like to try making one of these, you can download the free pdf file and print the parts on card stock. (download)
I’ve heard of people trying to twist Twilight into a religion and Star Wars‘ fans listing Jedi as their religion so why not Dr. Who? I will say that I think the dude in the video needs to go with decaf in the future.
David Tennant is to stand down as Doctor Who, after becoming one of the most popular Time Lords in the history of the BBC science fiction show.
Tennant stepped into the Tardis in 2005, and will leave the role after four special episodes are broadcast next year.
He made the announcement after winning the outstanding drama performance prize at the National Television Awards.
"When Doctor Who returns in 2010 it wont be with me," he said.
I dont ever want it to feel like a job, so I want to move on when it still feels exciting and fresh
"Now dont make me cry," he added. "I love this part, and I love this show so much that if I dont take a deep breath and move on now I never will, and youll be wheeling me out of the Tardis in my bath chair."
Ill miss it
Bets on next Doctor

Three years was "about the right time" to play the role, he told the BBC in an exclusive interview.
"I think its better to go when theres a chance that people might miss you, rather than to hang around and outstay your welcome," he said.
ACTING legend Patrick Stewart is to make a giant leap across space — from Star Trek to Doctor Who.
He has agreed to a major role in the Time Lord’s next series after teaming up with the Doctor David Tennant on stage.
The pair starred in a production of Hamlet in the summer. Patrick — Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek — has been offered a role in a two-parter involving the Daleks, set to be screened next year.
The new series will also see the return of classic alien enemies the Ice Warriors and the Zygons. Patrick, 68, is a big Doctor Who admirer and has spoken in the past of his desire to star in the show.
He said: “I have been a fan, actually yes, and I’m deeply dismayed that I was never asked to be in it. I think it’s a terrific series.” A source said: “Patrick and David are firm friends now, and want to work together again. They’ve got chemistry and that’s what Doctor Who is all about.
“Patrick’s role is still being finalised but the plan is for him to play a renegade Time Lord called the Meddling Monk, who was last seen in Doctor Who in the 1960s. The Doctor thought his entire race was wiped out and gets a huge surprise to find another member of his species.”
Its raining here, tropical storm Fay is slowly wobbling through the state. Its days like these that steer me to the den to do some reading. As luck would have it, I surfed the web and found some great reading material through Booklorn. I suggest that you bookmark her site, its just that good.
If you like Dr. Who, you can download some classic Dr. Who books courtesy of the BBC. Only two are PDFs, but the rest are in easily convertible HTML format for viewing offline.
Needless to say, I’m as happy as a pig in slop. Thanks Ann …
