Because Doctor Who covers such a wide variety of time periods, elements and styles, there are a TON of books out there that Doctor Who fans would love. Don’t limit yourself to time travel books. Doctor Who can be funny or frightening. It can be classic sci fi and occur in space or it can be techy sci fi and occur right here on Earth.

By the way, the circles on the poster say READ in Gallifreyan. You can download a Gallifreyan font for free here.
Here are a variety of decorating, game, craft and food ideas for a Doctor Who party. There are a lot of great things out there on the Internet ranging from skills and prices, so be sure and look around. At our recent party we did the Duct Tape Bowties (which were a huge hit), Cybermen and Weeping Angel masks (which were fun), and played Doctor Who Monopoly.
Christie also recently did a variation of Humans VS. Zombies that had a Weeping Angels twist that I highly recommend.
