Australian Whovian J.P. Fox transformed a room in his house into this awesomely detailed TARDIS console room. The bottom photo shows J.P. Fox cosplaying as the 11th Doctor, posing in his gloriously geeky space.
"I decorated the room, did all the lighting and electrical, built the whole console and painted the floor. All up it took a year to put together. I was incredibly blessed and lucky. I had the hexagonal shaped room already, owned all the timber and worked at a factory with a lot of spare parts to be dumped which I used for the controls. I wish you all had a chance to visit it in person."
Last month we shared a fantastic Cyberman Cake created by Welsh bespoke bakery Happy Occasions Cakes. Just in time for the triumphant return of the Doctor, Happy Occasions is back with to challenge our Whovian survival instinct anew with this terrifyingly awesome Dalek cake, complete with a light-up eyestalk and illuminated base. It’s sure to exterminate your appetite and, if you keep on eating, perhaps blast a few cavities into your teeth as well.

This colorful cross-stitched Doctor Who dodecahedron is easily one of the geekiest crafts we’ve ever seen and we think it’s completely awesome. It features the faces of each of the 12 incarnations of the Doctor and measures 5 inches tall. It was created by Henderson, NC-based artist Robin Hobbs.

Don’t run away! This particular “Nightmare in Silver" is 100% edible and not the least bit interested in destroying all life on earth. This Cyberman is an awesome cake made by Happy Occasions Cakes, a bespoke bakery located in Cwmbran, Wales. While we understand that the existence of this geektastic cake creates a distinct conflict between the Whovian survival instinct and sweet tooth, we’re pretty sure our overwhelming love of cake would triumph in the end.

Sure they’re hellbent on exterminating humanity, but as Whovians we can’t help but love a Dalek, particularly when they’re focused on simply being awesome and less concerned with those nasty death rays.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Doctor Who-inspired nail art, but there’s something at once sinister and delightful about the fact that these rhinestone and metallic stud bespangled Dalek nails are modeled on fake human fingers. Either no live human would dare risk being the model or no Dalek nail could stomach (not that they have stomachs) being so close to a human.
For an ongoing series entitled Invading The Vintage, Italian illustrator Franco Brambilla (previously featured here) turns beautiful vintage postcards into awesome works of whimsical science fiction-themed art. AT-ATs gallop down a scenic oceanside street while the Doctor parks the TARDIS outside Downton Abbey (aka Highclere Castle) and heads inside for dinner. A group of iconic sci-fi baddies gather at a waterside resort as a family of Jawas shows up to an outdoor flea market in their Sandcrawler to sell both droids and used cars. Meanwhile ED-209 has some Canadian Mounties to deal and a group of aliens have landed their flying saucer somewhere in the Alps to cool their heels and commune with some Alpine cows.
Brambilla has altered each postcard so thoroughly and subtly that the longer you look at it, the more of additions you’ll notice.
Relentlessly cheerful artist James Hance (previously featured here) painted this incredible “Adventure Timey-Wimey” mural on his 9-year-old daughter Maddy’s wall. From the Gunter Daleks to the BMO TARDIS to the Ice King as a Weeping Angel, it’s almost unbearably wonderful.
But wait, it gets even better because the whole concept was Maddy’s to start with:
"She had the idea for an Adventure Time / Doctor Who crossover, and had all the characters mapped out (You can see where I get my ideas from!)"
Prints of this awesome mash-up are currently available via James Hance’s website.
"Well, of course I’m being childish! There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes."
Sandbach, Cheshire, UK-based Playmobil member Emma J made is awesome custom set of steampunk Doctor Who toys featuring a TARDIS, a Dalek, and the 4th Doctor. Tom Baker looks great in tiny plastic form. We hope that beautiful TARDIS is full of Jelly Babies.
Playmobil + Doctor Who = Awesome

Peanut artist, or rather “Painter of Nuts” Steve Casino (previously featured here) is still hard at working transforming humble peanut shells into impressively lifelike miniature sculptures of pop culture icons.
"The peanut project began in July, 2012 with the off-handed casualness of hashing out a song or invention on a napkin, but realizing the vision has created serious challenges. Arriving at the right materials, for example, took a lot of trial and error. Learning the right resins and swapping pipe cleaners for bamboo helped, but Casino still struggles with the peanut-specific difficulties of his craft."
Each peanut character requires hours of work. The painting phase alone sometime takes over 10 hours to complete. And, because of the likelihood that a peanut may break during the delicate creation process, Casion always starts out with three peanuts versions per character.
