12 Days of Fandom Ornaments: #8

My Christmas tree is a mix of ornaments from my childhood and ones from later on in my life. Many of them are related to my favorite fandoms, naturally. I thought I would showcase one every other day in December in a 12 Days of Fandom Ornaments series.

Day 8: Christmas Invasion


The Christmas Invasion episode of Doctor Who was my conversion back to Doctor Who. The old episodes scared me so much as a child I just about swore off the series. I’d seen the first two episodes of the reboot and thought they were cheesy. But after I fell in love with Torchwood, I thought I might give Doctor Who another try. I happened upon The Christmas Invasion at just the right moment.

So it was great that stlouisphile created this and several other ornaments for me in a swap-bot swap last year. This is the first year I’ve managed to get them on my tree in time for the holiday. Based off regenerated Ten’s image, created by Springfield Punx, it is great to have a nice, solid doctor and beautifully drawn TARDIS hanging out on my Christmas tree!

    So pleased to see your ornaments on the tree! Don’t you just love Springfield Punx’ drawings? I got permission (for the dear reader of your blog) he was so gracious! I only made a small handful and only gave them away – never sold.

    Love your ornaments!! Wish I had started ornament collections of favorite tv shows like you have decades ago! Allons-y! stlouisphile

      Hey, it’s never too late to start! Fandom ornaments for all! 🙂

      I love Springfield Punx’s art–such a clever, familiar, and pleasing twist–like everything has suddenly become part of the Simpsons world. heehee Definitely good to know that you got his permission! And it was so neat to have this one representing the first reboot DW episode I ever fell in love with (a Christmas episode, no less! Perfect for a tree!). Thanks again for them *hugs*
