Vintage Doctor WhoDoctor Who has a legacy that spans almost 50 years, and has captivated the minds and attention of fans from the very beginning of the show. The series has since become a cultural staple in the UK and an aspect of Whovian lore that has the attention of many fans is the history of the show behind the scenes and during its evolution through the years.

Torchwood: Miracle DayThe BBC has released a lot of new information concerning the upcoming fourth series of Torchwood, which has been renamed from Torchwood: The New World to the new title of Torchwood: Miracle Day. Some of the information included could be seen as spoilers, so bear this in mind if you’re trying to remain spoiler-free for the new season!

Along with new cast member Mekhi Phifer who will be acting as CIA operative Rex Matheson, John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) have been joined by Bill Pullman (Independence Day) portraying protagonist Oswald Danes, Arlene Tur (Crash) portraying Dr. Vera Juarez, and Alexa Havins portraying Agent Esther Drummond.

Doctor WhoWhere are all these awesome geek parents and uncles and aunts coming from? Honestly, I never had anyone make something this cool for me: a TARDIS bookcase cupboard. Seriously, how amazing is this concept?

Over at Instructables, user caitlinsdad has put up step-by-step documentation on how he made this incredible TARDIS bookcase, based on the time machine used by everyone’s favorite time lord in Doctor Who. It is a Christmas gift he is preparing for his nephews, so the article is an ongoing development, but you can see the final product over there.

Caitlinsdad made the basis of the TARDIS bookcase from a cheap $20 bookcase, which is pretty amazing. I mean, my carpentry skills are on par with Homer Simpson — when I look at a bookshelf in a store, my first thought is, “Crap, will I have to assemble this?” Clearly, caitlinsdad, and many of the other fine folks over at Instructables, look at these items and immediately see artistic goals.

Doctor WhoWhen it comes to gingerbread, the only thing I excel at is in eating it. But there are people out there who are incredibly artistic with gingerbread houses and other concepts, and this Gingerbread TARDIS is of no exception.

Based on the time machine used by the Last of the Time Lords in Doctor Who, LiveJournal user therru has created a masterpiece just in time for the Doctor Who Christmas Special. Actually, therru made this Gingerbread TARDIS last Christmas, but decided to share with everyone how to make their own for this Christmas!

The final result is fabulous, and looks amazing. If Tom Baker saw this, he would think it to be “indomitable” and that the only thing missing would be jelly babies.

Be sure to click over to therru’s LiveJournal page for the full step-by-step procedure on how to make your own Gingerbread TARDIS – Fantastic!

Doctor Who Meets Star WarsI have many geek addictions, but the two that dominate all of my obsessions are Star Wars and Doctor Who. Naturally, if anyone could mash them both together, I’d be pretty excited. And somebody has.

Well, it’s a parody mashup — but overall, the video below is a fun little exercise of weaving Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith into the Star Wars saga. The mashup was directed and edited by Rick Kelvington.

So what happens when a Time Lord meets a Sith Lord? What happens if you add lightsabers to the Whoniverse? Check it out:

TorchwoodThe Torchwood news continues to trickle onto the web, with the announcement that Mekhi Phifer from the series Lie To Me, will be joining the cast of Torchwood: The New World. He will be set as a lead character to act opposite John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) in the upcoming fourth series.

Phifer will be playing a CIA agent named Rex Matheson, who Deadline points out is “a fast-tracked high-flyer with a lethal sense of humor who starts to feel his mortality when his life is put in danger.” It is unclear at this point whether he is allied with Torchwood or otherwise.

Torchwood: The New World is a joint venture between BBC and Starz USA that will see the series move out from its Cardiff, Wales, setting into a more international focus. Filming and production is said to include the UK, the United States, and Canada, under direction from showrunner Russell T. Davies.
