A few weeks ago I made a Doctor Who Etsy Treasury as a tribute to David Tennant, who is finishing up his time as The Doctor with a series of special episodes. I also promised that some of the items would be clues in a blog giveaway competition. So here it is.
Below are five images of items made by some talented Etsians. Each of the items has a link (intended or not) to a specific David Tennant Era Doctor Who episode. Just leave a comment on this blog post telling me which five episodes the images refer to and you could win!
Hint 1. She’s a feisty lady who really appealed to the Doctor. And the actress who played her is actually David Tennant’s real life girlfriend.
Hint 2. Any of the episodes featuring these guys will be considered as a correct answer, yes even the one where they asked the Daleks to be their friends and the Daleks just exterminated them.
Hint 3. The clue here is in the item’s title “Allons-y Alonso” and also the ships wheel and the compass…
Hint 4. Once again any episode where this guy makes an appearance is a correct answer, including season 1 episodes.
Hint 5. Once again it’s all in the title. Watch out for those shadows!
And what do you win? You win a monster of course, this is a monster giveaway and where would Doctor Who be without a few monsters to do battle with?
This is Barnard, he’s a mini-monster, made from an angora mix yarn. He does look a tiny bit like an Adipose but that’s just a coincidence. Barnard only knows four words in English “Who Wants A Hug?” He’s 3 inches tall and very soft. Barnard is not suitable for children under 3 years.
Here’s the official Doctor Who website, in case you need your memory jogged. And each of the clue images links back to the Etsy shop it came from so you may get more hints there.
Thank you to the five Etsy sellers who very kindly gave me permission to use their images. Here’s their direct shop URLs.
The competition is open until Midnight PST Friday 1st May 2009.
The competition is open to everyone except my immediate family.
If more than one correct answer is received a winner will be chosen at random from those who guessed correctly.
The winner’s monster will be mailed to them free of charge to anywhere in the world.
