Dress like Doctor Who on 11/11/11 AKA “Eleventh Doctor Day”

This is the time of the year where Doctor Who fans – AKA “Whovians” – are left to wait for the return of their favorite British sci-fi television show. The season ended a couple months ago, the Christmas Special is still a couple months away, and the second part of Season Six has yet to be released on DVD & Blu-Ray.

If you’re like me, you’ve gone back to re-watch Season 5 so you could get a better grasp of how it fits together with the following season, and are hoping to glean hints of what’s to come in Season 7. (There’s a BIG question that’s been left unanswered for me from the last two seasons: where did The Silence get the ability to control the TARDIS and cause it to explode in “The Pandorica Opens” at the end of Season 5? Or the ability to beam a signal to Amy Pond‘s ‘flesh avatar’ throughout Season 6? I’ve yet to have that explained to me.)

As we wait, I’m calling on all Whovians to celebrate the Eleventh Doctor – as played by Matt Smith – on a date that comes only once a CENTURY, November, 11, 2011 (11/11/11) or as I’m calling it “Eleventh Doctor Day“! On 11/11/11 I’m going to be dressing as The Doctor, donning a tweed jacket and bow tie, to commemorate one of the most beloved and enduring characters in science fiction. And yes, I’ll even be carrying a sonic screwdriver.

So I’m calling on YOU, my fellow Doctor Who fans, to join me! Let your geek flag fly and dress like the Eleventh Doctor on 11/11/11 then send me your pics! You can leave a link to your photo in the comment section, send it to me via e-mail, or tweet me your pic on Twitter. (Make sure to add the hashtags #eleventhdoctorday and #doctorwho to your tweets!) Don’t worry if you don’t have a whole outfit to show off.  Send me a pic of yourself in your fave Doctor Who tee-shirt, or wearing a bow tie and fez.

As the photos come in, I’ll be dropping them into a special Eleventh Doctor Day Photo Gallery.

So mark it on your calendars Doctor Who fans! 11/11/11 is Eleventh Doctor Day!
