Grow Your Own Tenth Doctor, While You Warm Up To The Eleventh

Illustration for article titled Grow Your Own Tenth Doctor, While You Warm Up To The Eleventh

Already missing Doctor Who's tenth Doctor? You can grow your own, thanks to this handy (ha) DIY kit. Meanwhile, overcome your doubts about the eleventh Doctor by watching him sleep with Rose Tyler.


The make-your-own-tenth-Doctor kit is something you can make yourself at home — all you need is the card, the little bottle full of some kind of green liquid, a hand (from an action figure), and a chain. Sadly, I can't find the original source of the image — all I found is this person on Etsy begging for someone to make it for them and send it to New Zealand for $5.

If you're the creator of the kit, or you know who is, please drop me a line and I'll credit her or him properly at once.

But don't panic! The new eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, got a ringing endorsement from the Moff himself (no, not our Moff), Steven Moffat. Says new executive producer Moffat:

The Doctor is a very special part, and it takes a very special actor to play him. You need to be old and young at the same time, a boffin and an action hero, a cheeky schoolboy and the wise old man of the universe.

As soon as Matt walked through the door, and blew us away with a bold and brand new take on the Time Lord, we knew we had our man.

Haters of his current hairstyle will be sad, though, to know that Moffat also cited Smith's touseled coiffure as one of the reasons he'll be a great Doctor. Also, says producer Piers Wenger:

There's a quirkiness to him, an unevenness to his face, a lot of stuff going on behind the eyes. He hasn't got an entirely modern face.


(Honestly the more I think about it, the more I agree with Tom Baker, who always said the role of the Doctor is "actor-proof.") But should you still entertain nagging doubts, here's a clip of the new Doctor hooking up with Rose Tyler, from episode six of "Diary Of A Call Girl":
