We’ve just added the “13th Doctor” t-shirt by the legendary Karen Hallion to our Nerd Approved Tee Public Shirt Store! Will we finally get a female Doctor this time around? There’s been a lot of talk about Tilda Swinton lately, but this shirt has more of a Hayley Atwell vibe. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—I would love to see Hayley in the role.

We have seen many, many Doctor Who TARDIS-themed dresses over the years, but this TARDIS dress stands out because it doesn’t, well…stand out. It’s actually rather elegant. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Hot Topic has added two new coat designs to their Doctor Who collection, and we have to say they are pretty unique in a steampunk-y sort of way.
The Doctor Who ladies corduroy coat is actually pretty nice looking, but that Doctor Who peacoat would be a bold choice—especially when you see the waist strap on the back. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
On December 28th 1974 the Fourth Doctor, brilliantly and memorably portrayed by Tom Baker, made his debut. Along with a delightfully odd sense of humor, a manic smile and, of course, his trademark scarf. A scarf that so captured the imagination of scifi fans around the world that it’s one of a handful of clothing items with its own fanbase dedicated to recreating the thing as accurately as possible.
During the early ’80s, the BBC regularly received letters from the public asking how they could get their own Whovian neckwear, and the then-new BBC Enterprises (the commercial arm of the company, now known as BBC Worldwide) responded in quite possibly the most BBC way possible – by providing instructions for knitting your own. A standard memo was prepared to respond to such queries. That memo was shared online by 93Fangshadow, and you can see it below. [click to continue…]
Steampunk Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver cosplay. That’s a really cool idea. Imagine a group cosplay featuring every different design. YES!
It’s the work of cosplayers Ishere Lartnec (Eleven’s Sonic) and Xatram Cosplay (Ten’s Sonic), and they went an extra step of making it Steampunk. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

We’ve seen the exploding TARDIS design from the Doctor Who episode The Pandorica Opens incorporated into everything from dresses to shoes, but this kimono variation may be my favorite. It’s also available in plus sizes!

A team of researchers with the University of Bristol created a gauntlet that uses acoustic levitation to manipulate small objects. They’ve dubbed it the “Gauntlet of Levitation” or GauntLev for short. Catchy, right?
The GauntLev is part of a broader effort to create acoustic levitation devices that could, one day, help people work safely with hazardous materials. This effort includes another version that they have compared to the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. Read more after the break…
