For nearly half a century, an inquisitive and adventurous man from the forgotten world Gallifrey has journeyed through time and space in his spacecraft, a rickety Type-40 TARDIS forever locked in the form of a 1960's London Police Box. Together with Amy Pond and Rory Williams, the Doctor explores the cosmos and battles evil in all its myriad forms in BBC America's hit television series Doctor Who. On Christmas Day, December 25th, 2011, the Last of the Time Lords returns to BBC America as the latest Doctor Who Christmas Special, "The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe," makes its debut.

The Doctor, portrayed by Matt Smith, finds himself in war-torn England embarking on a magical and mysterious adventure with a young widow and her two children. Joining Smith will be a guest cast including Claire Skinner (Outnumbered), Bill Bailey (Black Books), Arabella Weir (The Fast Show), and Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong & Miller) for the emotional and festive special, packed full of Christmas thrills and chills.

Set during the Second World War, "The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe" sees Madge Arwell and her two children, Lily and Cyril, evacuated to a draughty old house in Dorset, where the caretaker is a mysterious young man in a bow tie, and a big blue parcel is waiting for them under the tree. They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that a Time Lord never forgets his debts.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Slayer's Scythe Replica *2 Left

"A weapon... a scythe. Forged in secrecy for one..."
Buffy looks on in awe at the blade imbedded in the rock and, to her surprise, she is able to pull the weapon forth. As beautiful as it is deadly, the weapon poses a number of questions for Giles and Willow, who can find no mention of its origins and only know that it instills Buffy with a sense of great power.

The Slayers Scythe was made using Joss Whedon's personal souvenir prop scythe as reference. It is 37 inches long and 11 pounds. The blade is cast zinc with a blood-red coating, and the ostrich skin style handle wrap and the wooden stake, are all accurate to the prop. The Slayer's Scythe comes with a display plaque. Only a few left before they are discontinued. Click Here for more details.
