T-Shirts, Flatpacks and Vampire Hunters

Digging their hands into a whole tombola of Doctor Who nonsense Doctor Who TV has again come up with some winners from a selection of the weird and wonderful.

Up first and its a sartorial showdown between Steven Moffat’s big bads. Ladies and Gentlemen, in the blue corner, its the statue coming at you, keep your eyelids open for the Weeping Angels! And in the red corner…sorry, what was I saying…?

The Silence and the The Weeping Angels will be battling it out in the first annual stare-down competition- coming soon to a t-shirt near you! The fantastic design by Zerobriant will be available tomorrow (Tuesday 17th May) from TeeFury for just 24 hours party people!

Like the vampires that his new character seeks to stake David Tennant has risen from a Rex-induced death and sought to again find a place in America’s hearts with this, a role in the remake of 80′s craptastic horror film Fright Night.

In this first look at the former Tenth Doctor in action we finally get a glimpse of Peter Vincent, a vampire hunting illusionist (played in the original by the late, great Roddy McDowall).

The full trailer which features a spectacular one-second clip of Tennant (at around the 2:10 mark) and Colin Farrell’s awful dye job is available by clicking Play below…

Can you imagine the man hours it would take to construct an actual flatpack TARDIS not unlike this brilliant parody from College Humor (pictured right)? Apparently it’ll take an infinte number of dowels, a crank and a whole toolbox full of timey-whimey…

The TjARDIS Ikea design also received the Flatpack of the Week award from SFX Spurious Awards panel. The award was set to do to a chest of draws that looked like the Millenium Falcon but it fell through at the last minute (b-dum TISH! – Ed).

For more sci-fi themed instruction manuels head over to College Humor.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
