The finished “Fall Flower Fairy” dress and crown. I like how this dress turned out, I think it’s really cute and it makes me happy! Hopefully i’ll be able to get proper photos of in a pumpkin patch or someplace autumny.
The whole thing was made in a week from chiffon, organza, tulle, and sixty dollars worth of fake flowers. It was really easy and fun to work on.
another tentoo/rose with their lil one!! :D Pretty much completely inspired by veritascara's adorable daughter! Its a bit angsty, but i was in an angsty mood when i started it lol (On my DeviantART) A bit of a thank you for all the notes and nice comments i got on my other one *hugs everyone*
Let’s all hug David!!
Featuring Doctor Who behind-the-scenes hugs from Russell T. Davies, Billie Piper, Camille Coduri, Noel Clarke, Matt Smith, John Barrowman, Julie Gardner, Mark Gatiss, director Charles Palmer, and producer Susie Liggat
David (and Russell and Julie) modeling some original Gallifreyan robes and headdresses from the classic Doctor Who series. David volunteered for the costume test not because he would be wearing the gear in the series, but because he wanted to try on the original costumes.
Fan-boying & Fan-girling - the best job in the world.

Time Crash - Behind the Scenes
Benjamin Cook: Did you feel at all proprietorial about sharing a TARDIS?
Peter Davison: Clearly, David was very threatened
David Tennant: [Laughs] Are we having both our names in the title sequence?
BC: Apparently, yes.
PD: That’s brilliant.
DT: Superimposed on top of one another so there’s no arguing?
PD: My name could swing in and knock David’s off screen.
DT: [Explodes with laughter] Oh yes!
DT: It’s always nice when the series kind of links up so that it all feels like part of the same story. And I watched Peter when I was… well, I won’t say how young!
PD: I’ve watched every story that David’s done three or four times at least - not on my own, I stress - because of my children, and you don’t tire of them. They’re excellent.
DT: Your celery wasn’t real?
PD: No, it was material.
DT: I’m devastated.

Excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s articles for DWM (#407 & #408) and the Radio Times:
Back in the desert, Tennant’s hair has turned blond from the sand, which is choking, clogging and sticking to everything. (“I spy with my little eye,” he jokes, “something beginning with S!”)
Ben: “In the last series, Catherine Tate said that she hated the action sequences, because she couldn’t keep up with David Tennant. Did you have a similar problem?” But then, lest that sound rude, he adds: “But I know you’ve done a lot of action stuff prior to this, obviously.”
"It was a problem,” says Michelle. “I was quite shocked, because I did play the Bionic Woman [in the 2007 US remake], and I’m a fast runner, but running against David is impossible. He’s speedy like a panther. I thought, I can’t believe he’s beating me. I fell flat on my face - twice - coming down the sand dunes, because I was trying so hard to keep up. My legs buckled underneath me. I should have done some more training beforehand.”
Michelle: David is one of the best actors that I’ve ever worked with. He’s so professional, so lovely, so giving to everyone… and it’s genuine. I cannot speak highly enough of him. It’s almost like ‘here’s how to be a leading man.’
"A few of us did jump in the pool," Michelle reveals. "That was kind of a last-night-jumping-in-with-all-your-clothes-on thing." Or was she depressed because Wales won the rugby? "No, I just had the urge to jump in, I think, with David. We weren’t drunk! It was freezing. I climbed out and got changed, and then I was like, "I’m ready to play cards again now." But others were like, "WE’RE GOING IN AGAIN!" So I did as well. It was one of those spontaneous things. Yeah, they’re good to do. It was a great way to finish the shoot."
