Gallifrey

The soft, burnt orange suns melt the landscape into art. shining mountains climb high, grasping onto silver clouds above fields of deep red grass and glittering, silver leaves catch the light and leave a firey imprint in the breeze. The mighty glass dome looms housing spires that reach high filled with ancient life watching over…

Blink: Ten Years On

‘Blink’ first aired on 9th June 2007 and has since received critical acclaim, with many people labelling it as one of the best episodes of the ‘New Who’ series.

Time Ladies Support Time Ladies

As a feminist, I think it is absolutely the duty of every woman to support one another rather than tear each other down.

Bill Potts Lookbook

So you may have figured by now that we love Bill. Like, we love Bill. We love her so much we want to look just like her. Heck, Clara’s style was great but nothing can match the effortless 80s/90s cool of Ms Potts. We thought we’d show you just how easy it is to (attempt to) dress…
