I’ve been obsessively following the hullabaloo around the BBC reveal of the new Peter Capaldi Doctor Who costume and the start of filming of the latest season. While the choice of actors to play the twelfth Doctor and their choice of costume for the “100% Rebel Time Lord” has been hotly debated, that’s not what I wanted to discuss. What, exactly, did I want to discuss that could be related to office supply geekdom? The TARDIS diary, of course!
I don’t know why I didn’t think about it sooner but the notebook that River Song carries around to track the timeline of herself and the Doctor has been made into an official product. Of course it has. There are two versions available of the iconic TARDIS diary: a limited edition version with embossed, leather-look cover and 440 textured and parchment, aged-looking pages. It measures 7.25″ x 6.25″ and includes a hidden message. This version was a convention exclusive and carries a steep collectible price of $79.99. Alternately, there is less pricey option that features 160 lined pages on bright white stock. The book is 8″ x 5″ and is a mere $11.99.
Other options for River Song-styled notebooks are available on Etsy if you are willing to search. I found this one by Patiak that looks really fun.
Now back to our regularly scheduled, non-fan-girl office supply blog, already in progress.
