 I really don't get the obsession with re-making things in Minecraft. It just sounds like a really bad MIDI version of I am The Doctor. Like, if you really want to make a cover go grab yourself a copy of Fruity Loops. You can make something that sounds way better.

The robot chicken thing is exactly how nerds will act in the tardis

Great Weird and Wonderful, as always. The Lego tribute was amazing, I hope they do produce at least one set of Lego Doctor Who. If enough Whovians buy it then they may start producing more. Then they could get their own Lego game, and an appearance in The Lego Movie 2!


I'm getting ahead of myself. But hey... stranger things have happened.


"Who knows?"

Love the 1974 trailer- however, some of the clips were from the seasons either side of it (am I being too picky?)..... perhaps the challenge would be to restrict the clips being used to the 74-75 series (although that would seriously restrict the number of TARDIS interior scenes you could use to...none..!)

That 1974 trailer just got me excited all over again, it reminded me exactly why I can't wait for the Capaldi era - I really feel like we're starting to hark back to the old days a bit. I mean, for a start, an old man who can't remember how to fly the TARDIS and (possibly) two teachers trapped with him? YES. Even if the entire series doesn't go this way I think Deep Breath will nod back to An Unearthly Child and reference other classic stories (I have no idea what will actually happen, I've avoided the online spoilers).

That 1974 trailer was amazing! Something tells me dinosaur technology has advanced somewhat throughout the years...

Looks like Matt Smiths knows how to "drezz" for the occasion.

I just wish I could see a fan-made trailer for every classic series season.

The Eleven art reminds me strangely of what I imagined Skagra to look like o.O

The Eleventh Doctor is wearing a Time Lord costume now. Time Lord costumes are cool.

He looks like a wizard I half expected to see a wand in his hand.

The Day of the Doctor LEGO tribute is pretty good and so is the 1974 trailer.

The Scream with the silence. So perfect that I don't know why it hasn't been done until now!

That 1974 trailer..... just goes to show how similar the two seasons seem to be: new Doctor, dinosaurs...

I Am The Doctor has to be one of the best music tracks used for Television!

Plus, a wonderfully made 1974-style trailer! That was amazing :D

The painting of the silence is so well designed.you can tell it is based on the scream which I love.

@Captain_British it's because the amount of work going into that is huge its not just made in a minute and it dosen't sound bad it sounds great considering the amount of resources used i mean it's not going to sound like the real thing but in my opinion it's as good.

@Sephora36 It's funny and a bit weird because it's based on a photo of Tennant after he left the show. I remember his video diary from watching The Christmas Invasion at home where he has a conversation with his mother about his "boggle eyes"

@Seaborn W Deadman Robot Chicken has altered the way the doors open- pray that they do not alter them any further...

(Robot Chicken Star Wars joke for all those RC efficionados out there...)

@Polyphase actually, tbf, he kind of reminds me of paul mcgann in night of the doctor, he looks a bit older than when he took the role, and he's wearing a similar but different costume.

@The Finn the 1974 trailer is made up of clips from the 1973 and 1975 seasons as well (possibly because the 74 season has no robot knights, TARDIS interior scenes or zygon cyborgs that look like dinosaurs...).

@helenagardner9  I remember one time in Music we had to compose a piece based on the Scream painting and I just started referencing the Silence to a few of my fellow Whovian friends. I also insisted we call the piece Silence Will Fall.

@CaptainGrumpeyOr you can just take a midi file, put into something like Note Block Studio, convert it to a schematic file and insert it into your world in something like MCEdit, which I'm sure is how most of such Minecraft music videos are done.

Considering the BBC accidentally did this on a poster in 2005, I have this awesome mental image of the fandom throwing whoever-was-in-charge-of-that-day's-photo-shoot into a dungeon! World War V and here I am about to die in a dungeon!
