  • Doctor Who: 47 Years in Six Minutes

    The Fine Brothers somehow manage to summarize almost 50 years of Who history in six minutes. Whoa.

  • How to Dress Like the Doctor(s)

    The BBCAmerica’s Anglophenia blog is running a series of “how to dress like the [X]th Doctor” posts, offering guidelines for dressing like the various incarnations of Doctor Who. So far the First Doctor and Second Doctor are up, with the Third and subsequent coming soon. The suggestions are rather general–along the lines of “find a…

The drawings are available as prints for a very reasonable $10 each, and he also has…

  • I’m Sold

    George Takei should be Spider Man. I kind of want to be George Takei when I grow up.
