The BBC Reveals Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who’s 13th Doctor

Over the past 54 years, we’ve seen more than a dozen actors helm BBC’s flagship program, Doctor Who. Today, after what seemed like an eternity of men’s tennis at Wimbledon, our newest lead was announced: Jodie Whittaker will be the 13th Doctor and the first woman to take on the role. BBC revealed its pick with a short but exciting video in which the new Doctor opens her palm to see a TARDIS key materialize while walking through the woods. Soon...

Fire Up the TARDIS for a Trip to Nerdville

Nerdville is not so much a place as it is an experience—and a familiar one, at that. The latest original show from Arts Garden in Hugo, just a 20-minute drive north of St. Paul, is the ultimate crossover between some of sci fi and fantasy’s most classic films and television shows, including Star Wars, Star Trek, The Princess Bride, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Harry Potter. The show follows The Big Bang Theory characters Penny and Sheldon,...

Bingley’s Is the Twin Cities’ Best-Kept Secret for Tea Lovers

There’s an unexpectedly special place hiding in an unassuming gray brick building at the corner of 24th and Stevens in Minneapolis’s Whittier neighborhood. There’s no sign to tell you it’s there, but if you venture up to the second floor on certain afternoons of the week and walk through a door just off the lobby area, you’ll find yourself in the tasting studio of Bingley’s Teas Limited. Most likely, you’ll be greeted by a woman standing at an ornate wooden...

Make Your Holidays Bigger on the Inside with a Gingerbread TARDIS

The holidays are well and truly upon us! You probably have a billion things to get done this week, but might I suggest slowing down a little, taking some time, and building a gingerbread TARDIS to deck your halls for the what remains of the Yuletide season? At its core, a gingerbread TARDIS is actually far simpler than its more popular cousin, the gingerbread house. There are no angled roof pieces that threaten to slide off unless you hold...

Minnesota’s Christopher Jones Draws Everything from Superheroes to Time Lords

Christopher Jones is a Minnesota-based comic artist and illustrator who has worked on a multitude of different comics and books, including properties from Young Justice to The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to Doctor Who: The Third Doctor. Due to his having worked on a few things that I am a fan of, I was pretty pumped when he graciously took some time out of his day to answer a few of my questions. Philip Coler (TCG): For people who don’t...

How Does Your Geek Garden Grow?

Spring has officially sprung with its moody temperature changes and hordes of people desperate to get out of their houses after a long winter. Now that the harsh cold has passed, people are turning their attention to their gardens and other outdoor areas of their homes. Hopefully, one of these items will catch your fancy and give you something on which to spend your hard-earned pennies. So get out there and geek up your garden! Doesn’t it deserve it?...

Yeah, I’m a Nerd, and I Have the Ink to Prove It

When I was a kid, I thought tattoos were stupid. Why would you put a mark on your body that would be there forever? What if you didn’t like it anymore? Thankfully, I got over that a few years ago. Now, nine tattoos later, I’m looking back on what it means to have all this ink; particularly, what it means to have the nerdy ink that I have. Tattoos are like a journal on the body. They’re a way...

10 Geeky Holiday Crafts to Deck Your Halls with Awesome

Normally, you see holiday posts closer to, well, the holidays. Most people find the sight of festive décor before Thanksgiving nauseating (and in spirit, I’m right there with you). But if you’re a crafty geek, you can’t wait until December to start thinking about the holiday crafts—most crafty genius takes time to create! And these crafts that I’ve rounded up from the far corners of the Internet are genius, in my own humble opinion, and worth planning to spend time...

The Ultimate Doctor Who Workout Guide

This summer, I find myself slacking on maintaining a workout routine. My basic excuses include wanting to be outside, going through my video-game backlog, and reading through my favorite comics. After attending CONsole Room at the end of May, I thought about how fun it would be to incorporate the Doctor into my exercise routine—and when the Doctor became my new workout friend, I began looking forward to going to the gym, and it created excitement for being active....

Make Your Own TARDIS Business-Card Holder

What I love about geeky crafting is it invades all fandoms and crafting styles. Sewing, knitting, embroidery, and even bringing back some crafts that were lost. Plastic canvas seemed like a lost craft to me. I grew up with my mom making the best Barbie furniture for my sister and me to play with out of plastic canvas. I tried my hand at it a few times as a kid, but it wasn’t until recently that I started doing...
