a paperback copy of Doctor Who: Last of the Gaderene by Mark Gatiss!
About the book:
The aerodrome in Culverton has new owners, and they promise an era of prosperity for the idyllic village. But former Spitfire pilot Alex Whistler is suspicious - when black shirted troops appear on the streets, he contacts his old friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart at U.N.I.T. The Third Doctor is sent to investigate - and soon uncovers a sinister plot to colonise the Earth. The Gaderene are on their way. An adventure featuring the Third Doctor as played by Jon Pertwee and his companion Jo.

Eee! Love that you are starting to watch the show. I love Blink! Sally Sparrow was one of my favorite characters. The Angels are really creepy, aren't they?Delete
'Allons-y' oooh! Do you speak, French? :D I'm always glad to meet a fellow who does. I might be wrong and that's alright :) Maybe Doctor Who is French? I clearly am not familiar with the show but I've heard a lot about it.ReplyDelete
I promised to drop by so I'm waving hello! Unfortunately, I'm not in the U.S so I can't enter. That's okay :) Wishing everyone a great party!
Hehehe! I don't speak of lick of French LOL! Allons-y is the catch phrase used mostly by the tenth incarnation of the Doctor. This Youtube clip has a bunch of moments from the show. At around the 1:38 mark you can catch some Allons-y's! ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sEMkl5dk8MDelete
I remember the first time I saw Doctor Who I was seven and we rented The Genesis of the Daleks from the library, and my dad was telling me about how cool it was. It was an old Tom Baker (4th Doctor) episode and one of his best! From then on The Doctor intrigued me, and I watched both the classic and newer episodes. The 10th Doctor is the one I am most excited to see return in the 50th, because he was so eccentric (like 4) with a positive upbeat attitude and over the course of his storyline he really grew as a hero who cared again after the Time War.ReplyDelete
I am very excited to see the 12th Doctor and see if River Song comes back in his storyline. I think it will be great to have him not continually getting younger, and he will finally get to show how genius he really is, and brilliant, so far all of the other doctors have hinted at how smart The Doctor is and how brilliant with hundreds of years of life experience, I think he might show a more brilliant intelligent side this time round, with a sense of humor that complements that. Maybe he will be more in control? Great party!

Faye! You started out at an early age! I found Doctor Who on my own when the reboot series first aired on the then Sci-Fi channel around '05-'06 but I have since started to watch ALL the classic episodes with my little brother. like you, I'm super excited to see what Peter Capaldi brings to the series. I think he's a brilliant actor and will be a great change from Smith, Tennant, even Eccleston! I really think he'll bring a lot to the role. It will definitely be fun to see if they bring River back!Delete
Ah, yes. Either way, fantastic show! I love how all of the doctors have a different personality, don't you?Delete
Renee, thank you for hosting this great giveaway! :)ReplyDelete
Suko! So glad you made it! I hope you have fun this week. :)Delete
Started watching Dr. Who 3 yrs. ago. All caught up with the years since Chris Eccleston. My family and I have been getting the older Dr. Who's from the library. Enjoying them as well. Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete

Isn't the Doctor great? What's fun is catching up on all the classics. There are SO many episodes that my brother and I watch them during the summers when there's nothing new on TV. :-)Delete
I haven't watched any Classic Who yet but this book looks interesting! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I hope you give them a try! I really think you will enjoy them, especially the Pertwee and Baker years. :)Delete

I have seen all the episodes of the new series and am currently working my way through the old ones. My favorite episodes are New Earth, Doomsday, Blink, The Runaway Bride, Partners in Crime, Journey's End, and every episode with River Song.ReplyDelete
I added your giveaway button to my sidebar: Hardcover Feedback
Those are all favorites of mine too, Megan! How long did you cry after that 2nd season? I know I cried fore days and still tear up when I watch it over.Delete

I think my favorite doctor is probably the 10th and I loved it when Donna Noble was running around with him..she cracks me up.ReplyDelete
