You guys, can you BELIEVE IT? It finally happened! “The Day of the Doctor”! David Tennant! John Hurt! Billie Piper! And so much other stuff!
This episode, we sit down with EVERYTHING Doctor Who. EVERYTHING. Neil Gaiman’s 11th Doctor novella Nothing O’Clock! The surprising prequel episode "The Night of the Doctor"! The SUPER-DELIGHTFUL Peter Davison-written/directed cameo fest "The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot"! Google’s 8-bit tribute to the show’s anniversary!
And that’s all before we get to the actual damn episode! Did “The Day of the Doctor” thrill Liz and Rudy with its mix of classic Who references and new Who adventure? Did its depiction of the Time War satisfy? How great was it to see (most of) our old friends again?
Even though we only saw a glimpse of Peter Capaldi, you could just tell what he was thinking. Just look:
Fucking Dalek twats I’m going to twat you over the head with my fucking Tardis you fucking fucks
I really am sorry for all the cursing that’s occurred on this Tumblr since Peter Capaldi was announced as the 12th Doctor, but SERIOUSLY HAVE YOU SEEN THE THICK OF IT?

At C2E2 last April, my friends and I collaborated to make one of our dream cosplay groups a reality: a full group of genderbent Doctors! Doctor Who is a series that is close to all of our hearts, and naturally, we got to thinking of how the show would be different if the Doctor was a woman. We all picked our favorite Doctor and came up with a genderbent interpretation - it was so incredible to see everything come together!
I have to give a shoutout to these amazing ladies. All of them are so passionate about costuming and fandom, and they really put their hearts into making this group happen. I felt so honored being able to spend the day surrounded by my closest friends, celebrating a series that has done so much for science fiction and geek culture as a whole.
Not to mention being dressed as female Doctors felt so empowering. We had several people come up to us on the convention floor and tell us how inspired they were to see a male cultural icon like the Doctor represented by a woman instead. And that, I think, is one of the highest compliments any cosplayer can receive; that a costume inspired and empowered someone else. It was hugely flattering to hear and I found myself tearing up several times throughout the day.
This was, by far, one of the most amazing cosplay experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I love everyone in this TARDIS!
These girls are adorable!
