Happy Nine Years!
Nine years ago, on this date, the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) and Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) first appeared on our screens in episode 1 “Rose.” To celebrate, BBC has released three amazing images of the Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, and Captain Jack Harkness.

LEGO Cuusoo has previously banned fans from submitting Doctor Who designs due to conflicts over licensing agreements. In a statement on LEGO Cuusoo’s License Conflicts and Resolutions page on their website, the licensing conflict has now been resolved.
“Sometimes we have to turn down project submissions that refer to specific brands or licensed properties. We do this to avoid getting your hopes up for something we know we aren’t able to make. In these cases, we already know the LEGO Group can’t secure licensing rights to produce construction toys based on a particular brand or property, due to a conflicting interest with a third party. If such a conflict goes away, we’ll then be able to accept projects based on a particular brand or license.”
“If your project was previously turned down, archived, or deleted due to a licensing conflict that is now resolved, you may re-submit it as a new project. Supporters from past projects cannot be applied to a future project.”
Since then, 20 Doctor Who designs have been submitted or re-submitted on LEGO Cuusoo. Check out each design and vote for your favorites.

Let the cosplay begin! Designer Howard Burden has created the Twelfth Doctor’s new look. Peter Capaldi will be wearing a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr. Marten shoes.
BBC Press release:
The Doctor has a new look as Peter Capaldi’s era officially begins. In a picture released today by the BBC, Capaldi can be seen in the costume that will define his time as the Twelfth Time Lord in one of TV’s biggest roles. Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr. Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden.
Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: “He’s woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.” While lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat added: “New Doctor, new era, and of course new clothes. Monsters of the universe, the vacation is over – Capaldi is suited and booted and coming to get you!”
Filming for episode one of series 8 began earlier this month, after 10.2 million tuned-in on Christmas Day to get their first much-anticipated glimpse of Capaldi’s Doctor. Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, commented: “Peter Capaldi’s Doctor is officially recorded in history today with the unveiling of his new costume. It’s sharp, smart and stylish – The Twelfth Time Lord means business.” [Via BBC]
The new costume remind’s me of the Third Doctor. Here’s to prove it.
Some people love it and others hate it. What do you think of the Twelfth Doctor’s costume?
