A new Tardis, at last
As we do every holiday period, we're giving back to the larger Wikia community this season by participating in a a live test of the new article prototype design. It gives us a chance to finally prune back our CSS and JS and start over with a dramatically different design. While we do this, expect that the site is going to look a little — maybe even a lot — weird.
How can you help speed things along? File reports on things that you think are "off". Go to our article prototype board and start a new thread. Screenshots will be very helpful with your reports, so don't be afraid to include them!
Thanks everyone! And, please, have a safe and enjoyable holiday period!

Doctor Who is a "family franchise", which means there's something in it for all ages.
It does not mean that all content is appropriate for all ages.
Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, K9 and Company, K9 "the TARDIS", the sonic screwdriver, psychic paper, the Daleks, the Cybermen, the K9 prop — and all characters, concepts and situations described and displayed on this wiki— are © and or ™ the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC Worldwide, Metal Mutt Productions and/or their individual creators and licensees.

In simpler language: we're just fans doing our best to catalogue the franchise we love, without hurting the financial position of any of its owners.

If you're new to wikis, it might be helpful for you to take note of the concept of categories. Categories are the principal organizing tool on a wiki, allowing users to group information in ways that can ease the discovery of information. All the pages on our wiki are found, ultimately, in just four big "super categories". If this is your first visit here, please go to Floor 500 for a discussion of the way our wiki is organized. ✍
