Dear Shirt.Woot,

If you start posting more than one Dr. Who shirt per week I will stop shopping here. I'm tired of t-shirt sites being OVERRUN by Dr. miserable meeces.
Thanks!

OK. Goodbye. Don't let the door smack you too hard on the way out.

Not liking a shirt is one thing, but Touché away!ing there has been too many Doctor Who shirts here is just you being an Chumly. This is the first one in at least two or three months.

Also it's the 50th birthday of Doctor Who, how many of your favorite TV shows are still on the air 50 years later?

Actually it is my understanding that the silence in the library is not referring to The Silence but rather the lack of people. It is just a coincedence.

While i'm not that over dramatic about the situation to where i'm going to threaten to leave the site, I am sick of all the Dr. Who stuff as well.

In the way that people complain about the Zombie craze, i'm tired of all this Dr. Who stuff.

Don't get me wrong, I get people having interest in a show but the TARDis gets way to much play on this site.

I could personally care less about Dr. Who. I've watched the show and it is not interesting in the slightest (just my opinion).

I get it though, If it sells then it sells. Supply and demand. If you have a group of fans willing to TARD it up then be there to take their money.

That's not really a very accurate or fair statement. You can't seriously believe that this show has been on for 50 years right?... The guy who plays Dr. Who seems a little young to be over 50... :-)

Just because Smallville was based on Superman doesn't mean that Smallville has been on since the creation of Superman.

If you go by that logic then there are several popular shows that have a similar following or longer. That's like saying any Batman series has been on the air for over 50 years just because the the original Batman show aired in the 60's.

But you can debate that Doctor Who was never "reinvented" or "rebooted" since the nature of the show itself is that the main character regenerates. It is technically one continuous story line even though there was a break between the 8th and 9th Doctors. People call it NuWho, but really, it's a continuation of the story and the characters, not necessarily a reboot in the way that your Batman and Superman references are.

Love this. I have to agree that threatening to leave the site due to too many occurrences of some specific pop-culture reference that's hugely popular is a bit over dramatic.

How many 80's movie related shirts have been on the site? Princess Bride references? (I know quite a few since I own pretty much all of those, lol). As was later pointed out, if it sells, then there's a demand for it.

As far as being transported while on top of the Tardis or the air around it or the pavement under it. If you drive your car somewhere, does the pavement go with it? The air? The psycho murderer on top hangs on no matter how fast you make that turn.

I hate all the zombie stuff, I don't like zombies, vampires and all that jazz, so I just ignore it. Very simple to do. I bought too many shirts last year and went "Why did I buy this" afterwards, so having all the junk I don't like saves me money. I don't go "This Star Wars shirt has French on it, I'm leaving the site forever now!" I just say I don't like it and then hope the next day is cooler. Which it is, the owl is awesome.

Replace the Silence with Captain Jack and you've captured my interest.

Knowing my luck, I'll wear this shirt out (forgetting what is looks like in the dark) and freak myself out every time. Speaking of, where's my marker?

You didn't always take me where I wanted to go.
No, but I always took you where you needed to go.

I know the Editor's comments are usually done with a sense of humor, but this time it sounds like maybe it wasn't meant in a joking way. Which is fine. BUT, if the Editor was serious, then I have to respond, because I think I can give the answer to his/her concern... The Editor wrote, "I'm sorry, but I have to challenge the assumption implicit in this concept. If a humanoid merely crouching atop the Tardis would likewise be transported through time, what about the pavement the Tardis is standing on? What about the air surrounding it?"

First off, I agree with your concern. I don't think that would be possible either. Okay, but, here's the thing: this is just a picture of the Tardis... SOMEWHERE. There's nothing to say that it is, at the moment captured here, traveling through the vortex. It could be anywhere. I think you've made the assumption that it's traveling through time in this picture. The picture doesn't imply it, in my opinion. Now, MAYBE the halo of light around it is supposed to be the vortex... I dunno. But to me, it doesn't look so much like the vortex. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see it like that. There are any number of things that could more likely cause that kind of light, instead of the vortex. So, if you want an explanation for this "fatal flaw", then I'd have to say... he's not moving through time at all. He could just be hovering in front of a bright light on a foggy night. It could be anything.

And consider this... if it is your sincere belief that a humanoid on top of the Tardis absolutely COULD NOT be transported through time... then certainly he's not moving through time here... BECAUSE... there's a humanoid on top of the Tardis, which is not possible. Right? Therefore, this MUST be some other scenario.

Me, I love this design, and I'm ordering mine right now. :D

Conflicted: the night-time scene is awesome, but the day-time one is a bit boring -- seriously, just the TARDIS? Any suggestions?

It also seems a bit weird and overly simplistic that there's no writing at all on the TARDIS.

ps: Yes, the person in the TARDIS is obviously Matt Smith's Doctor, given that the silhouette matches his profile and that the Silence were introduced in his run.

This is a single show produced from the beginning by the BBC where the actor portraying the main character was is replaceable as part of the canon of the show (the actor changes but the character does not.. Same memories, etc.).. It is indeed considered to be the same show that started back in '63.

They sell what's popular (didn't this shirt win by vote?) and Doctor Who has become VERY popular and gains more popularity every day. Why would Woot turn their back on a pop culture cash cow because a single person states they are sick of it? The answer is THEY WON'T. I'm assuming that you're not going to pay them for lost revenue if they stop making Doctor Who shirts, so I doubt they could care less if you went away.

Talk about a case of over inflated self importance..

Jonas4321 wrote:I have a couple of thoughts on this-
- Why would it be the Centurian?
- Even more so, why a court jester???
- The figure in the TARDIS is drawn stylized (look at the hand) while the Silence is drawn more true to form (this lack of continuity bothers me a bit, though I can understand that a silhouette of the Doctor would need to be stylized somewhat to make him recognizable as a specific character).

Given that, it makes sense (to me anyway) it's the Doctor in there.

I agree that it would make no sense for the figure to be a court jester, which is why I wanted flyingmouse to clarify who it actually is. I also noticed the stylized hand (which I also don't care for given The Silence's true to form style) and agree that it's probably the 11th Doctor. The fact that the identity of the figure inside isn't clearly recognizable (as evidenced by the "debate") may be enough to keep me from buying this shirt, but the rest of the design is so creative that I'll probably give in and order one later today.

To be fair to the "Who h8rs," this is the third Doctor Who shirt in the last three months. I own Time Travel Is Cool which, as of today, is #11 in The Top 20, and I almost bought CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE! which technically debuted just over 3 months ago, but, since it's Christmas-themed, I'm including it because it's such a cool design and Christmas Eve was three months ago today.

I think you must be thinking of another shirt site because there have only been 10 Doctor Who-themed shirts printed by shirt woot! in its entire history and only 2 TARDIS-themed shirts since the beginning of the year. Sure, there are a lot of Who-related derby entries, but not many actually get printed.

Shirt.Woot has printed at least 5 TARDIS shirts. One is still in the Top 20, and the other four can be printed to order. My favorite is Relative Dimensions, followed by the classic It Came Out of Nowhere, and I'm thinking about ordering Surfer Who? in a Men's 2XL as a bathing suit cover-up.

Just click on the "all designs" link in the shirtwoot! header above and enter "doctor who" in the search field to find all 10 Doctor Who shirts plus eight others with the word "who" in their titles.
