Doctor Who Withdrawals...here are 3 things to hold you till August

Via Wallpapers Wide 

Some Doctor Who news has been trickling down the internet river. Some are spoilers, most are fun!
What do fandoms do when waiting for the new season...On a side note... My deepest apologies to the Firefly fandom.


I did feel your pain in the dark times...1989-2005. Fox even Killed the 1996 Doctor Who Movie from becoming a new series. I digress...


#1 Find a good wallpaper for your computer, or phone.

Like the one I led off with, or like the one below. That way every time you look at it you are reminded of the thing that you miss most. 


#2 Find those that are like minded.

In a post I made last September Whovian-Smorgasbord
I listed 6 Doctor Who sites that I frequent. If you use Google+ there are several communities to enjoy and share. I highly recommend joining as many as possible. You will meet interesting people with diverse ideas. The only draw back is having repeat post from different communities.
Here is one I found crosses most fandoms:


#3 Find videos to pacify your time.

Here are a few to get you started.


This is a fan made series 8 trailer. It was created by John Smith, who also create the next video.


Sherlock meets the Doctor. A nod to both fandoms, and to Steven Moffat who produces both series.


10th Doctor does the TIME WARP from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Funny stuff!

What do you do when waiting for your favourite show to come back from hiatus?

  7. For me August means GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY! Great post. Especially like the FIREFLY wallpaper. At least we had the movie SERENITY. :-)

  8. Serenity was great. It tied up the series.

  9. 2005-2009 for Star Trek fans was pretty long. (Not quite as long as 1974-1979, but only by a year.) It seemed like we weren't going to get anything at all anymore.

  10. Thats true, don't want to leave out the Trekkies! :-)

  11. I try not to obsess about any show that much. It'll be interesting to see how fans react to the old guy taking over.

  12. THE WALKING DEAD is the only show I truly miss during the hiatus... but not so much now since the new showruiner has ruined the show a lot.... I will miss DA VINCI'S DEMONS when they end this season this weekend

  13. I watch reruns. I can't wait until August!

  14. I pout LOL! I'm kidding. What I do is watch more movies.

  15. It is in my DNA to obsess.
    Some fangirls might leave, to them I say....Adiós!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I miss the Walking Dead also, but I can only handle so much crazy till I go sane...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I so the same.
    I have watched Matt Smiths final episode till I think I know it by heart!

    ReplyDelete
  18. If I can distract myself with more movies I do.
    I still pout though!

  19. The best way is to watch old episodes, but that community sounds really cool David. Can't wait! Have an awesome evening.

  20. All my Classic Who is on VHS, one day I'll take the time to convert it to digital.

  21. Ha! I've had this withdrawal. No fun.

  22. I've tried to fill it with Godzilla, as big as he is the inside of the TARDIS is much larger!

  23. I've read three Doctor Who novels since the 50th anniversary episode. One was pretty bad, but the other two were pretty good. I've got another one on my shelf here that I'll be reading in the next month or two.

  24. been watching the episodes that run in the morning... to get caught up. i have waited for years so a few more months...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I haven't read a Doctor Who novel in years, that is a great idea.
    The Big Finish audio series are great also.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've never watched Doctor Who . . . am I banned from your blog now? HAHA (P.S. I hope not!)

    Greetings, good sir,


    Dr. Who never really leaves us in Britain. If your saw my friends house, a Dr. Who shrine, you would be like a kid in a candy shop!


    Have a great weekend, DAVID! :)
