The first chapter of Summer Falls by Amy Pond

Doctor Who Summer Falls by Amy PondYou remember The Bells of Saint John, right?This book  is featured at the beginning of the episode where it’s being read by Artie, one of the children Clara looks after. It is said that the children’s book Summer Falls is a favourite of new Doctor’s companion Clara… The fact that the book was written by one Amelia Williams, aka Amy Pond, was enough to pique the Radio Times’ team’s interest… they posted the first chapter and the synopsis on their site here.

The full Summer Falls eBook will be available to buy (download) from rbooks.co.uk from Thursday 4 April, priced £1.99.

The book is also available on for download as ebook: UK | US,

Written in 1954, Summer Falls is set in the seaside village of Watchcombe, where young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. When she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned.

Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator’s magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.

And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make. “When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise…”

Tardis vending machine by Epic Comics

tardis vending machine tardis vending machine tardis-vending-machine-26041It’s not a surprise that people are creating lots and lots of things inspired by Doctor Who series. I’ve written about some of this things, now it’s time to write about this vending machine I’ve noticed on Radio Times. In this situation, as they notice, TARDIS may come from Tins And Refreshment Dispenser In Shop.

Florida comic shop Epic Comics recently installed a Tardis vending machine at its Orlando premises, which the owners say “can hold a LOT of soda” because (somewhat inevitably) “it’s bigger on the inside.”

As well as its snazzy exterior, the machine also boasts different Doctors on its buttons, meaning that you can push Tom Baker for a tin of Mountain Dew, David Tennant for Pepsi,Christopher Eccleston for Coca Cola, Paul McGann for Diet Coke (one wonders if they were being satirical there) and Matt Smith for Sprite.

Pretty cool, right?

Doctor Who Tardis speakerAs announced, the Doctor Who fans can get a real TARDIS experience: the WhoSounds speaker is a hight quality sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, with the LED light on the roof flashing blue and the speaker emitting the famous “vworp vworp” landing sound. That means that you can use any smartphone, tablet or laptop to playback or you can take audio from any device with 3.5 mm jack.

Doctor Who Tardis speaker

For the more technically-minded: the TARDIS features two internal full-range speakers inside a tuned and sealed chamber, with bass provided by a separate drive unit – all powered by an integral 2.1 audio amplifier designed and optimised by an ex-Harmon Kardon sound engineer – for low distortion and high clarity.

A handy remote control lets you skip track, and adjust volume, bass and treble. The speaker also features a built-in USB port which is capable of charging smartphones and tablets.

The first units will become available in April, priced at £150 and can be pre-ordered by visiting WhoSounds.com or from BBC Shop.

Interesting clocks inspired by Doctor Who, isn’t it.  They were created using Adobe Illustrator, meant for laser cutting 1/8″ acrylic plastic to make Doctor Who clocks.

Each clock is made out of multiple (often 2) layers of plastic glue together. So if you want to try making a tardis clock. Cut tardis-blue.ai on blue acrylic, cut tardis-white.ai on white acrylic, and glue them together.

You can find more information about them here.

Doctor Who Tardis and Dalek Lunch boxes

I never used a lunch box, but finding out about the Dalek and exploding Tardis lunch boxes was fun. It is said that they are listed on some Australian website (at least for now), but you can always add the retro style lunch boxes to your collection.
