After a nine-year absence from television, the BBC’s Doctor Who returned in 2005 and became a certifiable licensing bonanza. You can buy Doctor Who cookie jars, Doctor Who pajamas, Doctor Who USB hubs, and something called a Doctor Who Tenth Doctor Unisex Onesie with Thumb Holes.
Fans of the show looking for something slightly more dapper may be interested in a line of Doctor Who dress suits recently unveiled by Fun.com. The ensembles range from the subtle—a normal-seeming jacket and pants with a bombastic interior—to the overt, with a blue suit designed to look like the exterior of The Doctor’s TARDIS time machine.
The suit’s satin interior reveals a busy pattern of TARDIS-related illustration:
Even the buttons on the sleeve have tiny TARDIS accents, so there will be absolutely no mistaking your commitment to The Doctor. The subtle suits retail for $230, while the full-blown TARDIS version will set you back $300.
While Netflix likes to keep the details of Stranger Things a mystery, David Harbour, who plays Detective Hopper, likes to have fun with his fans.
Harbour posted a cryptic image to his Instagram which, while it clearly contains Stranger Things Season 3 spoilers in both the photo and the caption, does not give away any “context,” hence leaving us with very little real information.
For anyone who grew up with HBO in the 1980s, the holiday season meant two things: Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas and The Bells of Fraggle Rock. Though the beloved Jim Henson classics have been largely confined to home video-only screenings over the years, they’re making their way back to the big screen for the first time via Fathom Events when the Jim Henson Holiday Special arrives in theaters nationwide for a limited, two-day engagement.
More than 600 theaters across the country will host screenings of the Jim Henson Holiday Special on Monday, December 10 (4 p.m. and 7 p.m.) and Sunday, December 16 (1 p.m. and 4 p.m.), which will pair the two specials—both of which have recently been remastered—alongside an all-new featurette, Memories of the Jug-Band.
"Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas was a favorite project for my dad since it included such sweet characters, Paul Williams’s delightful music, and a timeless holiday message,” Cheryl Henson—Jim Henson’s daughter and president of the Jim Henson Foundation—said in a statement about the special, which is a music-filled twist on The Gift of the Magi.
“Also, the special was a great opportunity for him to experiment with puppetry techniques and effects that would be seen in his later works," Henson continued. "[It] is exciting for families to share this holiday classic along with the special episode The Bells of Fraggle Rock, a rare opportunity to see the Fraggles on the big screen, and to introduce these beloved characters to a whole new audience."
On December 18, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas on Blu-ray for the first time ever so that you can make the special a permanent part of your regular holiday movie marathon. This news comes on the heels of Emmet Otter'sfirst-ever official soundtrack release, more than 40 years after its original premiere.
