Over at Teefury, for today only, Doctor Who fans can get their hands on a shirt that plays on some awesome Time Lord traditions. The t-shirt, which is only $9, is labeled Prydon Academy: Teaching Yesterday’s Doctors Tomorrow! Prydon Academy, as the hardcore Who fans might know, is the educational institution on Gallifrey where Time Lords, including the Doctor and many others, went to school.
When I saw the design of the shirt, I was pleasantly surprised — it makes Prydon Academy to Doctor Who what Hogwarts is to Harry Potter. Obviously the time loop humor is a bonus, but the mandatory inclusion of the sonic screwdriver (actually it is specifically the one used by the Tenth Doctor, portrayed by David Tennant, thank you very much) is the highlight for me.
Also, while we’re on this topic, just a reminder that the TARDISblend, a Doctor Who podcast co-hosted by myself and fellow Geek of Doom Tom Cheredar, is now hosted here at GeeksOfDoom.com, and you can check out our most recent episode right here.
The sale at Teefury began at midnight (November 5, 2010) and will continue for 24 hours, and once it’s over, it’s gone forever, so if you’re a fan of the Doctor Who universe, now is the time to get yours.
And while you’re over there adding the shirt to your cart, pass along the jelly-babies please. Allons-y!
Captivatingly written! I never saw Dr. Who but your article makes me wish I was a fan!I I’ll check out the series and if I were a fan, I’d be getting out my credit card right NOW for the shirt!!!
