– Doctor who?
Aaah, they say the old jokes are the best… but perhaps that one might be the exception to the rule!
That said, the new Beastie I’d like to introduce to you today ties in quite well with the retelling of a corny old joke. The character he’s based on is known for his ability to regenerate and reappear as essentially the same person… albeit in a different body, with different personality traits. And even the tales of his adventures have made a comeback and evolved in recent years, creating a whole new army of fans!
Yes, you’ve guessed it – it’s Doctor Who Beastie!
Some of you might remember that I already made a Doctor Who Beastie, back in December 2015… But given the original Time Lord’s continuing popularity, I figured it was only a matter of time before I was asked to “regenerate” Doctor Who Beastie!
Of course, in keeping with the tradition of Doctor Who’s various distinct regenerations, and the fact that all Beasties are unique, there have been some subtle changes between this Beastie and his previous incarnation…
As you can see, his complexion has changed to a bright sunny yellow, and he’s clearly visiting a different dentist! But his tailor and hairdresser did such a good job last time around that he’s decided to stick with them…… And underneath his practical tweed jacket, he’s still rocking the same bright red braces and matching bow tie!Finally, I kitted him out with a Beastie-sized Sonic Screwdriver – essential for getting a teeny Time Lord out of all sorts of intergalactic scrapes!But surely you’re not going to walk to the furthest reaches of the galaxy, Doctor Who Beastie?Aha! I thought not! A cosy felt TARDIS will work much better.Perfect!Well, almost… Even though I gave him strictest instructions to head directly to his new home, and to be sure to get there in time for Christmas, he took it into his woolly head to go adventuring instead!
Days passed, then weeks… And still no Beastie! I didn’t know what to do – contact NASA and see if they’d noticed anything whizzing past the Hubble space telescope? Ring the BBC and ask for Professor Brian Cox? But then…
He popped out of whatever black hole he’d vanished into, and arrived on his new doorstep apparently none the worse for wear after his longer-than-anticipated journey!
Even better, although he wasn’t home for Christmas, with uncanny Time Lord timing he did manage to pick the next best date for this grand entrance – his new buddy’s birthday!
Here’s a taster of what he discovered when he started exploring his new home planet…… And don’t forget to stop by Tatie’s World to see more of this Beastie’s antics!
Thanks to Tajana for sharing her Beastie pics with me… And for being so patient while we waited for the Beastie Tardis to find her house!
Next week, we’ll be finding out what Paddy and Plunkett have been up to in their first adventure of 2017… See you then!

Another fantastic beastie
Thanks LucyAnn! 😀
Dr. Who says hello!! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Hello back from all at Beastie Towers! 👋 I hope he’s being good and not travelling the galaxy looking for monster friends to bring home…
He’s perfect! We are now looking for a suitable storage box for him… something like a plexiglass box… 🙂
Hmmm… That might just about keep him contained. Maybe hide his Sonic Screwdriver just to be on the safe side 😀
😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
Thanks for the advice 😉
Oh man! I was on the edge of my seat wondering if Doctor Who Beastie would make it. I am embarrassed to admit I’ve never seen a single Doctor Who episode, but it is on my to-watch list…one list which I never seem to get to. Great job and such terrific details!!
Dangit! I should have added some nail-biting tension by making this a two-part post! Missed opportunity there… Anyway, I grew up watching reruns of the original Doctor Who, and can heartily recommend it for some good retro sci-fi fun. All you need now is to find some of that elusive free time… 😆
If I had a Tardis I could travel back and make some free time!
Yes… I’m seriously kicking myself for not making better use of that Beastie-sized one while I had it here! D’oh!
Yes, but then only your toes could time travel. Wait, unless you really are Beastie-sized.
Oh, he is so cute!!!
If it makes you feel better the Christmas package my parents sent me on Nov. 26th arrived here last week. It should have taken only 10 days but it got stuck on Frankfurt airport. After some research on the internet I found out thousands of mail items got stuck there during the holiday season.
Aha! That could be what happened… So it was either sticky transit at Frankfurt, or trouble with a black hole somewhere on the edge of the Andromeda galaxy. I’m just glad he didn’t vanish forever, and that you got your Christmas parcel! German Christmas goodies are the best!
Being stuck on the edge of Andromeda sounds so much more appealing than Frankfurt Airport … I would go with that story! 😀
And yes, the goodies are still great. I just had a German gingerbread cookie with my coffee … now on the verge of a major sugar russshhh.
Yuuuuum! Those are so good… I went a bit nuts buying them from my local Lidl supermarket in the run up to Christmas! Still, I had to fuel the craft frenzy somehow… 😆 Enjoy your treats!
I can’t wait until our new lidl store opens!
Oh, are they in the States now too? I wouldn’t be surprised, a lot of their stuff is great!
Yes, there are here now, too … as is Aldi! 🙂
How cool… Must be like a little taste of home for you!
Yeah, now we can have Bratwurst for every meal. haha
Incredible Dr. Who Beastie, Helen! I love the perfectly tailored tweed jacket, and the suspenders. Wow!
Cheers Shirley! Those little monsters are often better dressed than I am! 😆 By the way, did you see that Melissa from Knitting the Stash mentioned both of us in her last podcast? Seems like she was pretty taken with your artwork 😀
Your monsters definitely have more swag than I do. I’m gleaning so many fashion tips from them. Really! 🙂
I did see that mention from Melissa! How wonderful to see your beasties on the podcast, too! The mention made my week! ❤
I know, me too! It’s always nice to know that someone out there is reading… And with that in mind, thanks for your comment 😀
Argh, so cool! I can’t decide if I like his jacket or sonic screwdriver the best!
Thanks! 😀 I reckon the Sonic Screwdriver would win hands down if I could figure out how to put a working LED inside… 🤔
Gasp! That would be amazing!
Yeah, I REALLY wish I hadn’t dropped out of technology class in school now!
That’s such a cool Beastie! With a sonic screwdriver too! That’s so brilliant! 🙂
Aha! I didn’t think you’d be able to resist this one 😀
Definitely not! 🙂
Great Dr Who he’s lovely ,also the Tardis and screwdriver
Thank you! I couldn’t send him off into space without the proper equipment 😀
Love your way with wool and words!
Thank you! Although I’m sure you’re not including the corny old joke in that… 😆
He’s amazing! Great job! 😀
Why thank you! 😀
