The Doctor, the eponymous star of Doctor Who, doesn’t visit her homeworld very often. This isn’t just because the Time Lords are an irascible bunch; after consulting with several Who-obsessed scientists, it’s clear that Gallifrey is less like the strangely habitable planets of Star Wars and more like the worst place…
Answering incredibly nerdy questions that never really needed to be answered is pretty much Steven Moffat’s Whovian raison d’être.

Part Tricorder and part lock-pick, Dr. Who's famous all-in-one device could handle any crisis—save deadlock seals. Now, researchers from Dundee University have replicated at least some of the screwdriver's functionality with a machine capable of lifting and turning suspended objects.

This is the Addis family and their 100,000-brick Lego Christmas-themed Dalek—Dr. Who's enemy cyborgs. Every December, the Addis—Mike, Catherine and their three children, Tom, Holly and Christopher—spend hours creating something massive out of bricks.
While visiting Singapore, Marvel Comics talent scout C.B. Cebulski discovered Dr. Who bottled water, an oxygenated beverage that has absolutely nothing to do with the television show.
