OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 09:15:29

Cos we really ought you know. With a splendiferous prize like an autographed photo or a Tom Baker Scarf or a real working K9.

VashtaNerada Tue 19-Nov-13 09:18:23

What if you already have a Doctor Who name..?

TheDoctrineOfWho Tue 19-Nov-13 09:19:03

<jumps on thread>

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 09:20:08

Then you dont have to nc Vashta smile

TheFaceofBEauRouge Tue 19-Nov-13 09:37:45

Good idea!

RussTDaviesBear Tue 19-Nov-13 09:50:23

Very good idea!

Nessalina Tue 19-Nov-13 10:29:03

Sounds like a plan, though I have to find out how to name change... grin
I bagsie 'Nyssalina' wink

RussTDaviesBear Tue 19-Nov-13 10:52:26

Nyssalina - go to My Mumsnet (top right)/My Account Put your new name in the Username box, your password in the password box lower down and click 'Save Changes'

Mine used to be a Dr Who name. Initially when I joined MN, I was StayingSunnygirl, but when Matt Smith became the 11th Doctor, I changed it to StayingDavidTennantsGirl, because I didn't approve of the new Doctor - and I still believe DT was the best doctor ever.

Over the years, I have abbreviated it to SDTG, in order to add other bits to my nickname.

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 11:01:12

I remember you as StayingDavidTennantsGirl smile

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 11:11:43

Just to make it clear, those who are already Doctor Who names obviously wouldnt need to change for the comp as clearly their loyalties run deep and so they would especially love an autographed lovely photo or a fez or a working sonic screwdriver.

OodaresingingoftheDoctorDonna Tue 19-Nov-13 12:09:27

We asked months ago for this MNHQ and someone said it would be discussed. Also asked for emoticons.

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 12:10:19

I remember the emoticon request.

Quenelle Tue 19-Nov-13 12:11:37

Excellent idea. I've just thought of a good one smile

BlinkQuenelle Tue 19-Nov-13 12:22:51

You have to say it out loud quickly.

Allons-Y !

ChippingInLovesAutumn Tue 19-Nov-13 12:26:20

I wondered why you had namechanged --and what the hell it meant --grin

I'm not sure my namechange would be in the spirit of it


TEEurkeyDay Tue 19-Nov-13 12:27:05

But...but...but I just put on my Thanksgiving name!!!!

Super idea. I also remember asking for emoticons.

Awww - thanks, OhYouBadBadKaleds! thanks

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 12:51:49

I wonder if thanksgiving can be combined with Doctor Who!?

shock chipping!!!! How could you not!!!

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 12:52:12

Nice Quenelle grin

TEEurkeyDay Tue 19-Nov-13 12:56:48

I just thought of a cracker of Doctor Who name. I may have to abandon Turkey Day.

TEEARDIS Tue 19-Nov-13 12:57:48


OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 13:00:50

Very splendid indeed Tee!
Still time for turkey day next week smile

ChippingInLovesAutumn Tue 19-Nov-13 13:00:54

OYBBK - I knew it would shock & upset you, but I felt the need for honesty in our relationship <sob> I hope you can forgive me flowers


OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 13:01:43

Well, just as long as you know I can never compromise on this Chipping. <sniff>

Blatherskite Tue 19-Nov-13 13:05:56

I added the 'Evil Genius' bit to SDTG's nickname <proud>

BlinkQuenelle Tue 19-Nov-13 14:21:50

That is good TEEARDIS.

You did, Blatherskite - it was a proud moment for me too. Iirc it was on a poo troll thread - the OP said her dp cleaned his bum hole with cotton buds and then left them lying on the floor or the side in the bathroom. I suggested doctoring the fresh cotton buds with Deep Heat, to teach him a lesson! grin


Nyssalina Tue 19-Nov-13 14:30:06

Sorted! Thanks RTDBear! grin

Nyssalina Tue 19-Nov-13 14:30:59

Took me a moment, but loving BlinkQuinelle!!

Blatherskite Tue 19-Nov-13 14:31:51

Sounds familiar smile

BlinkQuenelle Tue 19-Nov-13 14:33:10


TEEARDIS Tue 19-Nov-13 14:41:03

I just got BlinkQuinelle! Genius!

GoingGoingToGallifrey Tue 19-Nov-13 14:46:42

Ohh my first 'seasonal' name change.

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 15:19:32

Have reported the thread in case mn have missed it!

ICallHimMaxForShort Tue 19-Nov-13 15:33:28

DH suggested I became The Mighty Jagrafess of the Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfoe

CrappyDiem Tue 19-Nov-13 15:36:01

Hmmmmmmmmmm. Hang on.

Can i have matt smith for a priz?

TEEARDIS Tue 19-Nov-13 15:39:30

I think that's too long, ICall.

Maybe just Jag?

I've been quietninjatardis forever. I should definitely win. I'm also 38 weeks pregnant and feeling it and I'm going to the doctor who convention on Friday as I'm officially crazy. Really hope I don't go in to labour grin

Also we need a [tardis] emoticon please mnhq.

DismemberedDwerf Tue 19-Nov-13 15:57:26

Oh what a fabulous idea! gets thinking cap on

SlitheenInADwerfSkin Tue 19-Nov-13 16:15:38

How do I look? farts

TEEARDIS Tue 19-Nov-13 16:26:24

Beautiful Dwerf!

ICallHimMaxForShort Tue 19-Nov-13 16:57:22

I was obviously being too clever for my own good TEEARDIS. The Doctor says I call him Max for short after introducing him.

showtunesgirl Tue 19-Nov-13 16:59:51

I once saw DT get out of the actual TARDIS outside where I work because they were filming there. I was going quietly mental whilst the other ladies with me were confused and asked why is getting out of a box? hmm

OhYouBadBadKaleds Tue 19-Nov-13 17:04:32

MavisKorvarian Tue 19-Nov-13 20:08:28

NCed for The Other Thread but thought I'd twirl through here.... We don't actually know that Madam Korvarian isn't called Mavis. She looks like she could be called Mavis <dons eye patch, looks through hatch --to the kitchen-->

MavisKorvarian Tue 19-Nov-13 20:09:07

And we can guess that Mme Korvarian would suffer from strike out fail too...

ItsBiggerOnTheInside Tue 19-Nov-13 20:14:13

Ok, my name isn't really that clever but just wanted to join the crowd smile

Everyone must accept that I will destroy you all.

That is all.

I shall accept your surrenders now.

TEEARDIS Tue 19-Nov-13 21:48:34

So, are we getting a [TARDIS] or a [Dalek]?

TheOod Wed 20-Nov-13 07:35:17

I want [scarf] [jellybaby] [bessie] [K9] [fez]

TEEARDIS Wed 20-Nov-13 08:03:21

[Sarah Jane]? sniff

FeedMeFeederer Wed 20-Nov-13 09:54:26

FeedMeFeederer (Fiderer)

is the best I can come up with. Welcome any better suggestions.

I mentioned before that FidGirl wrote to Steven Moffat. She got a reply a couple of months later.

The envelope was exciting enough - addressed to her, typed and from England. Inside was a standard but sweet letter from his agents saying how he loved to hear from fans etc. and there was a photo of MS signed by Moffat. She was thrilled for weeks grin Didn't even wistfully mention DT would have been better (I thought so!)

The photo has pride of place on the kitchen windowsill along with 3 daleks in various sizes, 3-D photos of planets and a crystal rock she got from a museum which she says is really an alien device.

SomethingkindaOod Wed 20-Nov-13 14:55:10

I vote for a Tardi emoticon..

MardyBra Wed 20-Nov-13 17:19:45

Some great name changes. I'm struggling to think of one. So far all I can think of is MarthaBra or MarthaJonesBra.


MardyBra Wed 20-Nov-13 17:21:15

Or I could be TheMasterBra.

I wanted a Christopher Ecclestone name, or just him tbh.

I'd rather like Christopher Eccleston as my prize, TYVM grin

YoniMatopoeia Wed 20-Nov-13 18:03:05


MardyBra Wed 20-Nov-13 18:09:42

OK everyone: Snog, Marry or Off a Cliff with

Ecclestone, Tennant and Smith.

For me, I'd be happy to shag Ecclestone, marry Tennant (so I could shag him loads) and throw The Elephant Man Matt Smith off a cliff.

MardyBra Wed 20-Nov-13 18:14:00

Actually scrap that - I'll make a separate thread.

FeedMeFeederer Wed 20-Nov-13 18:47:24

Did you see upthread I was thinking TheMasterBra or MarthaBra too?

AreYouMyMummy Wed 20-Nov-13 19:54:22
