A Nerds Menagerie: Doctor Who Week

On this day in 1963, a little show premiered…Happy Doctor Who Day nerds! 

We are going to honor our favorite Timelord by dedicating the entire week to the Who universe! What is it about this show that has stood the test of time? Perhaps it’s the way we relate to the companions?

Perhaps it’s even the villains: the Master/Mistress, Daleks, Weeping Angels, Cybermen, Silence, and the list goes on! Maybe it’s the thought of someone offering us an escape from the day to day while not “wasting” a bit of time? Hello, time machine! The Doctor has made us laugh with his alien antics, from saving the planet with a jammy dodger, offering jelly babies at the wrong time or fish fingers and custard. The show has made us cry when losing people we grow to care about or watching them learn what an impact they’ll have in the future, because as we all know, the Doctor has never met someone who wasn’t important. The Doctor constantly reminds us of our humanity, and what a strength it is.

How have you incorporated Who in your daily life? I may or may not have the Tardis as my ringtone, my phone case may have the DW logo on it’s back and there may be quite a few Tardises on my desktop with a few other nic-nacs! I may even have a Tardis blanket that my pup likes to wrap himself in.

We’d love to see your Whovian collections, and please share what it is you love and find inspiring about the show!  If you aren’t a Whovian, please let us know what you think about the fandom and the show from your perspective? We hope you come visit this week and gain a little insight on the Whovians in your life! 😉 We really hope you enjoy nerds! <3
