We, as mere mortals without access to a TARDIS, need something by which to keep track of what day of the month it is. We can’t just gallivant off to visit William Shakespeare or Vincent Van Gogh or the Face of Boe. We are stuck in the present time, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have the Doctor with us. The Doctor Who Special 12-Month 2015 Calendar by Day Dream is perfect for any fan of the Time Lord, regardless of which Doctor is claimed as “my Doctor.” Thirteen incarnations of the Time Lord are featured here, beginning with William Hartnell in January and ending with Peter Capaldi in December; August features a double dose with Paul McGann and John Hurt. Daleks, Cybermen, Ood, and Weeping Angels also grace these pages, as well as one companion: Clara Oswald (portrayed by Jenna Coleman).
The spiral-bound calendar is made with linen paper for a sturdier product than normal paper calendars, and measures 13 inches by 15 inches. The actual calendar portion of each page is a very small 2 x 3.5 inches in the upper right hand corner, allowing the Doctor, his villain (or companion), and the TARDIS to be the star of the page. Perhaps not very practical for a planning calendar, as there is no white space to mark appointments or special occasions, but perfect for displaying one’s fanaticism for the BBC franchise. This would make an excellent gift for any Whovian (and it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas).
