Whovians, we’re almost there. In what is perhaps the biggest “Doctor Who” event since the series relaunch in 2005, fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the worldwide telecast of “The Day of the Doctor.” We here at Zap2it are going a little mad, in all seriousness.
To celebrate, we’ve teamed up with BBC Home Entertainment and those lovely people have provided us with some very cool stuff to send out into the universe (or close enough) every weekday this week – 5 prizes on Monday, 4 on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday, and so on. What are the prizes each day?
Well, like the Doctor, we’re not going to tell you everything at once now. That would ruin all the adventures, wouldn’t it, sweetie? Spoilers. But we will say this: the last prize, to be awarded Saturday morning, will be very hard to send away.
So bookmark this page, and check it each day at 10am Eastern time, and a new giveaway widget will magically appear. You can get multiple entries by tweeting or liking our Facebook page too. It’s relatively pain-free. Easier than regenerating.
We do apologize – this sweepstakes (for reasons beyond our control of time and space) is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only. And be sure to check out all of the awesome stuff on the BBC’s Shop Site. We’re hoping Santa likes us this year.
Friday, November 22 – ONE DAY TO GO UNTIL “THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR”
You’ve held in with us, companions, while we know you’ve said “what? SOCKS?” Well, it’s paid off. Because today we have one, and only one…
Because believe us, if we had two, we’d still say we only had one because we’d be keeping it. Straight up truth-telling. We may still cry when we drive it to the post office.
This set has the complete collection of Series 1-7, featuring Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston, Tenth Doctor David Tennant, and Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, in beautiful 1080p high definition Blu-ray. And not only that, it also has the “Doctor Who” Universal Remote Control Sonic Screwdriver. Because then you can point at your TV and make it play Doctor Who over and over again. And point it at your dog. Or your car. Wave it around in the mall to look important. Really, it’s up to you.
Enter now, share with your friend, best of luck, Whovians. (Also a programming note: We’ll be live blogging during tomorrow’s worldwide simulcast. Check us out.)
Thursday, November 21 – Two Days until “The Day of the Doctor”
Oh my goodness, it’s now just day after tomorrow until “The Day of the Doctor.” Fan girl squee! Today, we have two limited edition 50th Anniversary Christmas tree ornaments. A subtle little reminder of your love for The Doctor and the show nestled into the branches of your tree this holiday season (and something to look at while watching the Christmas special, but we’re not going to think about that just yet. Let’s just get through Saturday, yes?)
Wednesday, November 20 – Three Days until “The Day of the Doctor”
Wednesday’s prize isn’t as “small potatoes” as yesterday’s socks, but still… potatoes. Mr. Potato Heads, specifically… and “Mash Smith” ones at that! Gettit? MASH! And he’s from… wait for it… Galli-fry! Oh yes, we went there.
Three days to go means we have three 11th Doctor Mr. Potato Heads to send out to lucky Whovians. He has a fez! And a sonic screwdriver! And flopping hair! Set comes complete with 8 removable parts and pieces.
Tuesday, November 19 – Four Days until “The Day of the Doctor”
Today’s prize: Socks. Yes, socks! However, these are T.A.R.D.I.S. socks, specifically. Can’t get away with a fez at work to show your Whovian pride? Maybe these will give you a little spring in your step. We have four pairs of these warm little blue lovelies to send out. Sure to look nice with Converse.
Monday, November 18 – Five Days until “The Day of the Doctor”
Today, we have five T.A.R.D.I.S. nightlights. Isn’t it darling? If anything is going to keep you safe and secure in the middle of the dark night, it’s your own little T.A.R.D.I.S. beaming at you from the closest electrical socket. 3″sq x 6″h on a 1″h plug with on/off switch. 7W bulb, included.
