Geek Chic: A Whovian Kitchen

by Jen

I spend quite a bit of time in my kitchen and not just at the holidays. As a Whovian, I find it hard to resist a TARDIS anyway, but throw it on something for my kitchen and I’m ready to hand over my cash. The holidays might be over in a few days, but these kitchen items can be a great gift anytime you need a little something for yourself or your closest Whovian.  Continue reading

10 Reasons We Love… RIVER SONG

By T. Mack

River1

Since her introduction in season four of Doctor Who‘s regenerated life, River Song has managed to become an instant classic character in the show’s epic line-up. The brain-child of Steven Moffat, River first showed up with David Tennant’s 10th Doctor, went on an emotional journey through time with Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor, and is scheduled to meet up with Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor during this week’s Christmas special. River is vivacious and voluptuous, sexy and romantic, a badass with a vulnerable side. She’s a doctor in her own right, a professor, a historian and an archaeologist. She has been Cleopatra, she created the oldest graffiti in the universe, she breaks out of high security space prison whenever she feels like it and she jumps out of space ships into deadly outer space while wearing a ballgown and a smile. She’s just totally stinkin’ cool! Here are only 10 of the innumerable reasons to love River Song. Continue reading

Thoughts on Doctor Who: Season 9

by Brandon (with intro by T. Mack)

T.Mack and Brandon

I’m an only child, but I’ve managed to find family in the geek community. My sister geeks and I have created this site, but that doesn’t mean we don’t value our brother geeks as well. I’ve asked my favorite baby brother geek, Brandon, to share his thoughts on the latest season of Doctor Who, which recently ended. Since I am the most outspoken Whovian around here, I thought it might be nice to hear from someone else. Brandon and I always talk Who as well as all other things geek, so I’m incredibly pleased to introduce him to the SisterGeeks community. -T. Mack

Where will all of this excited go down? Fear not, fans of Doctor Who and Sister Geeks, I shall tell you. Read on! Continue reading

Geek Chic: Whovian Swag          

by Jennifer

If you talk to any Whovian, he or she will gladly recount the episode that hooked them (“The Unquiet Dead” – Series 1 of New Who), but another fun aspect of being a Whovian is the swag that comes with the ship. My car has a TARDIS decal, my desk features a TARDIS of its own, and my husband and I both own Doctor Who shirts. With the holidays right around the corner, I thought I would peruse Etsy for some excellent Doctor Who items perfect for any Whovian. Continue reading

Geek News: RIVER SONG RETURNS TO DOCTOR WHO

By T. Mack

River_1It’s been a busy week and I’ve been a little out of the loop on Geek News. That’s why it’s so great to have the blogosphere. While I was slacking, Geekritique reported on Wednesday that River Song is set to appear in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special. The return of the character is one no one was sure we’d ever get. Alex Kingston, who plays the vivacious wife of the Doctor, had been open about her desire to see River return. However, the character’s story line seemed to have played itself all the way out during Matt Smith’s reign as 11th Doctor. While there was a loop hole that was wide enough for River to comfortably step through, there was no indication until recently that show-runner, Steven Moffat, would take advantage of it.
