geek girl | november 18, 2012

I take a week off from Geek Girl, and what happens? The trailer and a special prequel mini-episode for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special get released, that's what!



Not only that, but there's some serious Star Wars/Doctor Who stream-crossing going on in this week's roundup, including David Tennant guesting on The Clone Wars, of all things! Let's take a closer look and see what awaits in this week's geeky picks!

 

From the top left:

  • Bit Rebels shared a fab R2-D2 modded scooter. 
  • Roqoo Depot posted a variety of Star Wars/Disney mashup images. I find the Jar-Jar Binks as Ariel image particularly terrifying.
  • And, yes, it's true! David Tennant played a voice role on last week's episode of The Clone Wars. This might actually convince me to watch an episode...or maybe I'll just be satisfied with the clip included in the article.
  • In a reverse of Tennant's surprise Star Wars appearance, Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok from Return of the Jedi) is reported to have an upcoming guest role in the Doctor Who series.
  • Ottertorials takes a look at yet another round of rejected Star Wars merchandising ideas.
  • Check out the most amazing Hobbit dollhouse ever at Mad's Hobbit's Hole.
  • This t-shirt from Snorgtees is more sad than geeky, really. I mean, why don't we vist the moon any more? ::sniff::
  • More Design Please posted a fun zombie-themed engagement photo shoot.
  • Think Geek has been in a roll lately with the Star Trek themed merchandise- just look at those Tribble slippers! They've also got a Spock oven mitt and a Vulcan Santa hat in the lineup.
And how about one more video clip for the road? Timothy Zahn discusses the finer points of writing battle scenes for sci-fi novels in this short bit.


MTFBWY!
