December 8, 2014
So, apparently, Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day is a thing that’s celebrated annually on December 8 by some people on this planet – it was started back in 2007 and has since gained some momentum. In honor of this special (albeit kind of weird) day, it could not be more apropos to share with you Doctor Puppet, a fantastic Doctor Who 3D animated series featuring puppets of your beloved characters from the popular television show.
I’m a huge Whovian (fanboys/girls of the Doctor Who series) and I actually stumbled upon this YouTube series a while back. After watching the first episode, I fell in love with it. It’s part of the Nerdist Alliance – a collective of YouTube channels and creators linked to the ultimately nerdy Nerdist Industries – and created by animator Alisa Stern. The series follows the adventures of the Eleventh Doctor in stories untold by the traditional Doctor Who series but greatly aligns with that universe.
Recently, the series has caught up with the BBC’s timeline for the Doctor Who series and featured a video of the Twelfth Doctor. My favorite video from the Doctor Puppet series – and the one that’s most fitting for the holiday season – is the one featuring puppets of Nine, Ten, and Eleven in a Christmas episode. You can watch that video below:
