competition-your-who-costumes-pumpkins

It’s Hallow’s Eve which means that the spookiest day of the year is almost upon us; a time for pumpkins, trick or treating, and dressing up as our favourite Doctor Who characters and monsters!

Ok, so that last one is pretty much every day of the year, but at least on Halloween we can go to a party dressed up as an Ood and not be the weirdest looking one in the room. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. To celebrate the season, we want to see all your Doctor Who inspired costumes and pumpkins.

We know how much Whovians like to get creative with their festivities, so please send us pictures of your handiwork to admin@whoviannet.co.uk. We want to see your timey-wimey fancy dress and pumpkin carvings and our favourite one will win an awesome bundle of prizes, including a copy of The Drosten’s Curse by A.L. Kennedy and two Big Finish downloads, Dracula starring Mark Gatiss and Frankenstein starring Arthur Darvill.

The giveaway is open worldwide and you have until 1pm GMT on Friday 4th November 2016 to send in your pictures. The winner will be contacted by email on Saturday 5th November 2016. Now the boring bits are out of the way, we look forward to your entries!

whoviannet-review-series-8-soundtrack

The official Doctor Who Series 8 soundtrack has been released today (Monday).

Although it goes without saying, Murray Gold delivered yet another spectacular array of musical scores to accompany the long awaited arrival of Peter Capaldi as our titular Time Lord. The soundtrack catapulted the Twelfth Doctor’s first string of adventures into new levels of cinematic scale and his new theme in particular, A Good Man?, helped to set the tone for his era by establishing him as an honourable hero that’s not to be reckoned with. Just look at those eyebrows go!

The brand new soundtrack compiles the highlights – and then some – as it takes listeners on a thrilling journey through each episode, from the Victorian backdrop of Deep Breath to the festive wonderment of Last Christmas. Along the way, fans will recount their visit to Sherwood forest and their heart-stopping encounter with the Mummy on the Orient Express, while the atmospheric tones of Time Heist will set pulses racing all over again.

A special mention to the Doctor Who theme, complete with a mesmerising middle eight, but it all builds up to the climactic series finale, Dark Water/Deep Breath, which was made even more so by Murray’s music. It makes you laugh, cry and send you screaming behind the sofa (usually all at once!), and Doctor Who fans wouldn’t want it any other way.

We have teamed up with the organisers to reserve one pair of tickets to give away to an avid Whovian and their dedicated companion! For your chance to win, simply answer the question below before 1pm on Thursday 22nd May. See below for Terms and Conditions.
