Can you add a comment explaining what is going on here? That might help you get votes. Clean art style, but I'm not quite sure what is happening.

It's a Doctor Who reference, anyone who would want this shirt probably recognizes it. The doctor travels through time and space in his TARDIS, which appears as a blue police box, that's why there is a constable in there answering the phone. He went to the wrong police box thinking it was his TARDIS.

Just so you know, as a Doctor Who fan I got the joke right away. GMV.

Same. Immediately understood. Hope to be able to get this for my girlfriend. GMV

I had something to say, but I seem to have forgotten it.

Thanks for the votes! I guess I should have entered this on Friday, instead of second guessing myself, as I'm prone to do.

I was just telling my friend the other day, there just aren't enough ways to make sure everyone who sees me immediately know what TV shows I like.

If only I could find one to let people know I like Star Wars as well, my public identity would be complete.

I had to login from work too just to comment. I immediately got the message and loved it. I am a recent Dr Who convert by a friend that has been a fan since the 70s. Of course, I sent him the link. :-)

Thanks everyone! I really, really should have submitted this Friday. If this doesn't print, I'll have no one to blame but myself.
If only I had some sort of time travel device!

Thank you!
I've been sitting on some sloth-based ideas since several people liked the last one, and sloths are shamefully underrepresented nowadays.
Someday they will be as ubiquitous as penguins.

GMV! This would make a great bday gift for my dad, who introduced me to the Doctor with the super-long scarf.

I've never watched a Dr. Who show in my life, and I laughed at the reference! My daughter had explained the concept to me a year or so ago, when she discovered Dr. Who. She watches some new spin-off incarnation about his sidekick.

Nice shirt, fun concept.

Love this! GMV ... Reminds me of a moment in the Sarah Jane Adventures when SJ thinks she's found the Doctor and it turns out to be just an ordinary police box.

(P.S. If the worst should happen and this doesn't print, please consider having it printed elsewhere!)

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed, they don't know my head is a mess, no, they don't know who I really am.

ThatRobert, you're a meanie.
Stop calling other designs "losers".


I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Asked my brother if he wanted anything for Christmas, said no. I showed him that this was in the fog about 2 hours later, and he turned into a foamy-mouthed something or other screaming about "DAT SCARF!" and Tom Baker. Hopefully this wins. I want to actually get him something (as well as a colorful scarf to go with it) instead of sucking as a sister.

Oh, tl;dr, you has my vote.

I am actually knitting a Who scarf, sadly it most likely won't be done until next winter it is so long!

Is it possible to make it a moebius scarf?

The success of this surprises me not at all.
What does surprise me is that for the past several derbies, the "no pop-cult rule" has not been applied and yet few designers have taken advantage of it.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Love me some Captain Jack Harkness.....on Torchwood, which is what I bet your daughter watches.

Did you know, TORCHWOOD is the letters from DOCTOR WHO rearranged, an anagram.....cool, huh ?

Re: Wrong box, doc


My biggest concern with this is whether or not I can justify $10 for a tshirt when I'm having trouble paying rent. Then again, it's Doctor Who...

Regardless, hope it prints!

So upset this didn't get in the top three! Great style, great idea, great Doctor.

For absolutely serious, if you ever get this printed anywhere please tell me D: I will buy seventy billion of them! This had, and will always have, my vote.

Tom Baker forever!

I adore this. I REALLY adore how so many people younger seem to be taking a shine to the Fourth Doctor~ This gets another vote in the next Double Take, for sure. Thank you for making this! <3
