Tiny Little Bow Ties are Cool

Animation artist Alisa Stern now claims to be the Doctor's current companion, and she can prove it -- they really do go everywhere together. Her Doctor is only a few inches tall and I think he's brilliant. The details and textures are perfect, and best of all it's a very good caricature likeness of dear old Eleven.

(Sometimes the Doctor Puppet has Matt Smith's goofy lopsided smile and sometimes he looks very very sad indeed... I need to know: is Alisa adding his mouth digitally in her photos? Did she make a Happy Head and a Sad Head? Is the mouth a sticker or something? Reveal your secrets, Alisa!)

The Eternity Clock

We are eagerly awaiting the release of the new game from IGN! I'm especially happy that players can choose to either play as the Doctor or as River Song.  And from the preview here, it sounds like Matt Smith and Alex Kingston both get some fun things to say.  And of course their voice performances are going to be wonderful, because, y'know, it's Matt and Alex.

It looks like there's some genuinely interesting puzzle-solving to do in the game, with the kind of wit and quirkiness that will make this feel like a real episode of the series. An episode we can climb inside!
