Title: Lords of Time
Artist: Scifiangel
Pairing: All twelve Doctors
Rating: G
Warnings and Spoilers: No warnings, but spoiler for who the 12th Doctor will be.
Disclaimer: I don't own our lovely alien. He belongs to the BBC. I make no money from this, much to my sorrow. Full disclaimer under cut.

Author's notes: My daughter made a comment the other day and it wouldn't leave me alone until I made it happen. She said, "Now that there are twelve Doctors someone should make a clock with them as the hours." Well, I can't let that challenge go unanswered. Was up till 1am, but I like how it turned out. Enjoy!

A new Radio Free Skaro episode!:



Happy New Year! After battling illness and ennui over the past week and a half, the Three Who Rule are back with a bumper episode to launch 2013, the centrepiece of which is an epic interview with Kevin Jon Davies. Davies was the director and producer of “More Than 30 Years In The TARDIS”, the BBC’s official 30th anniversary celebration for Doctor Who, but his connection to the worlds of Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, and Blake’s 7, made for a fascinating chat. Also, your three hosts run down the Christmas time viewing figures, discuss their importance, and also talk about puppies. Six weeks until Gallifrey One!

It was a hoopy one in Moscow. There were less than ten of us DNA fans but we had fun enough for 42! We carried towels (of course) and wished everyone we met a happy Towel Day (and we made a niiiiiicey walk around the city, 4 hours long it was; extra hoopiness for May 25th being the last school day, so there were a plenty of FREE PEOPLE who are not at school anymore and not yet at a university). Most people kept a very straight face when we greeted them; some, on the contrary, looked as if they saw something terribly illegal and unacceptable. But some people smiled, and some answered, "Thanks", and some even answered, "Thanks, have a happy day too", and some were curious enough to ask about Towel Day!
We also were asking random people if they had a spare space suit, or a spare babel fish, or if they could show us the way to Magratea. One man gave us some chocolate and another one gave us a banana! And we did get a space suit after all! Well, a part of it. Well, one of the ex-school-boys gave us the wrapping from his ex-bouquet of flowers (which he just tore apart in a joyful way). So we got the space helmet!
And once we asked a taxist about Magratea. He replied, "Yea, how much will you pay?".
Apparently, the Guide was right suggesting a taxi job for aliens... heh heh.

Who else sees a news story "What an infrared scan of the Mona Lisa contemporary copy reveals" and feels a stab of fear/excitement, just for a moment, that the answer will be, "the words THIS IS A FAKE in felt tip"?

As nwhyte has already pointed out, today is the tenth anniversary of the death of Douglas Adams, writer and script-editor for parts of 1978-1980.

It's therefore an opportune moment to point out that the BBC have made a radio documentary about Douglas's involvement with Doctor Who, which they broadcast on April 2nd and again on April 29th.

Unlike the BBC's television output via iPlayer, which only seems to work in the UK, the BBC's radio output is available on iPlayer all over the world.

So read about, and listen to, "The Doctor and Douglas", and take a moment to remember Douglas Adams and his contribution to the programme.

Hi there, I can't recall seeing this mentioned anywhere on LJ, so it might have slipped under the radar, but last Friday, BBC Radio 4 transmitted a programme about Douglas Adams' contribution to Doctor Who. I've not heard it yet myself, but as a big fan of Season 17 (for which Adams was script-editor), I'm looking forward to doing so. UK users can find it on the BBC iPlayer for the next few days.
