geek girl | february 24, 2013 {the doctor who edition}

We're just over a month out from the next set of new Doctor Who episodes (and the big 50th anniversary bash!), and I for one and totally intrigued by this new companion and excited to see where the writers go with her story. In celebration of that, today's Geek Girl roundup is all about everyone's favorite Time Lord!

From the top left:
  • Cupcakes Take the Cake featured a lovely set of TARDIS cupcakes...with just a hint of River Song thrown in for good measure!
  • You really can make calls from the big blue police box now with this TARDIS phone.
  • Geek Alerts reports that a new set of Doctor Who socks is showing up in Hot Topic stores.
  • New Zealand gets all the cool currency! First Star Wars, then The Hobbit, and now a Doctor Who version, too!
  • This gorgeous Doctor Who perpetual calendar starts shipping in March and is available for preorder now.
  • That's it, I officially have to learn to crochet now that I've seen this collection of dolls featuring all 11 Doctors and the TARDIS.
  • Ordering for this lovely 50th Anniversary Doctor Who poster should be opening up any day now.
  • Speaking of posters, I also love these amazing fan-made images!
  • It's not technically Doctor Who news, but I thought I'd throw in that David Tennant, the 10th Doctor, will be returning to the Shakespearean stage to play in Richard II this fall. He was brilliant in Hamlet, and I hope that they bring this one to home video, as well!
And tooday's video is a fun mashup of Back to the Future and Doctor Who, with K-9 as the hoverboard!
