Doctor Who News Build your own Crack in the Universe!

Make Your Own Crack In the Universe

What do you get when you combine strips of metal, LED lights, wiring and some batteries? Why a Doctor Who-esque crack in the universe of course!

Build your own Crack in the Universe!

Admittedly, combining these items will not actual result in a tear in the fabric of time and space (you need to add a lemon for that…I’ve said too much) but if you add a little elbow grease and no small amount of swearing you’ll end up with a cool LED ‘Crack in the Universe’ light strip.

Taken from the crack that appeared throughout Series 5 of Doctor Who this replica was designed by Imgur user Poolstick and his roommate – who has been offering advice and his services for anyone interested in making their own via reddit – the crack looks fantastic and as a bonus comes with Prisoner Zero! How cool a roommate would he be? He mimic you and kill you!… maybe check his references first, though.

For further details and a breakdown of how you could make your own, head over to Reddit.

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.
