A gigantic David Tennant cardboard cutout

Do you think that Toys 'R' Us will notice if I sneak into their store this weekend? I have had it on good authority that children's toy stores have large DT cut-outs on display with him pointing his sonic screwdriver (ahem).

They won't miss one, will they?

When I was at Warwick in first year there was a window that we always walked past on the way to the Union. In said window was a lifesize cardboard cutout of Season Three Buffy (which I think we all agree was when she was at her hottest).

It was inevitable that sooner or later a drunken night would end up involving the Buffy cutout. A mate climbed up onto the roof of the flat, broke in through the window, then ran out of the front door, clutching the Slayer. (The flat was empty but that was luck.)

I woke up the next morning and went to get a cup of tea to be confronted with Buffy in black leather trousers in my kitchen. And I only had shorts and an old t-shirt! But as she was cardboard she couldn't run away! The stuff dreams are made of. (I can't remember how many times I had dreams about Buffy making me cups of tea but I'm sure I must have...)

I reckon the whole thing is probably boringly easy: Just go into Toys R Us and ask if you can have it when the promotion is over. They'll probably be glad not to have it stuffing up their bins.

Heh - don't have to go into Toys R Us. They have one in WHSmith which I...don't...visit regularly. Ahem.

Forget all this cardboard cut out nonsense. I read in the paper the other day that they're gonna make human / cow hybrid mutants that are 99% human DNA and 1% heffer DNA. It's happening, people! So all you gotta do is maybe get a lock of Tennant's hair or something and, like, a bit of cow, and you can just clone YOUR OWN real life walking talking living Doctor! Of course, what with Tennant being such an awesome stud, he wouldn't just be 1% cow: he'd be 100% beef.

a lifesize cardboard Buffy turned up at my cousin's fiftieth and ended up in all the carefully posed group photos.

You should march purposefully into the shop and request firmly, politely and assertively to see the manager.

Request politely of manager that you take possession of cardboard cut-out when they are finished with it. If manager refuses enquire sweetly how he will be disposing of it, and if appropriate make noises about landfill, killing the planet, local paper, blog etc

Mind you, I'm not sure I could cope with a lifesize cardboard model of my man...

Just one? Wouldn't the flat be so much nicer with a David or two in every room?

Could you get two and post one my way please?

I'd love to have him pointing his sonic screwdriver in my direction everytime I walked in the front door.

Maybe we need to do a flash-mob thing?

PS sensible as the "enquiry" method amy appear I never yet been successful in this despite years of chasing film posters, movie and CD promotion cut-outs etc etc. It's either "we're not allowed", "it's already been taken" or plain old "no".

Sniff...

Hello,
Nice blog i like it
Often, after a film's premiere, the studio will auction off many of the props and costumes used in the film for the purpose of charity.
