The Nightmare Before Doctor Who Christmas Special

This stained glass TARDIS is one of two in the world. It was made by a friend of a friend who gave it to me for my 40th birthday.

It was a long time ago, longer now than it seems, when Amelia Pond met a man in her dreams.
And the story that you are about to be told about Doctors and Daleks
is centuries old.
Now, you’ve probably wondered where the good Doctor comes from. If you haven’t, I’d say, it’s time you’ve begun!
For there was a Time War and and many were lost
and no one quite knows just exactly the cost.
But The Doctor is now the last of his kind
and when he was forced to leave Gallifrey behind
with a ride in his TARDIS across time and space
he met dear old Sandy Claws, face to bony face.

  1. This made me dance in my seat and giggle so hard my co-workers were wondering if I was finally losing my mind.

  2. Wil, you missed it. They had a Dr Who/Nightmare Before Christmas mashup t-shirt on last week. I just got mine in the mail today:

  3. Reading this was an unexpected highlight of my day. It made me grin (all the more because I’m currently on a “rewatch all the Doctor Who” kick), so thanks for that! :)

  4. And now the Tardis lamp is exposed. Thanks for the limerick and just in time for Christmas. Though I am kinda waiting for a new companion and Doctor, no offense to the current actors but it is time for a morph!

  5. Wil,

    I will have you know that while I read that it was narrated in my head by Sir Patrick Stewart, as he read the opening narration of the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, making the opening at least 200% more awesome. Thanks for the Xmas spirit booster.

  6. Your text just makes me wish, even more, that they’d go back and let Paul McGann have his Dr time… I don’t follow the Whovian expanded universe, but from what I gather online, it was Paul McGann who got to be the Time War Doctor. There’s even scripting floating around of the Christopher Eccleston Doctor arriving in London, where the Hartnell Doctor started, in McGann’s clothes, traumatized. And it makes sense of the entire Eccleston run – this is the Doctor with PTSD – and Tennant is the Doctor learning (with the help of Rose, Martha and Donna) to come to terms with his PTSD.
