You didn’t really think we’d forget about Halloween did you? As anyone who has visited us knows, Halloween is our absolute favorite holiday and this year we’re pulling out all the spooky stops. We’ve been hoarding pixels like corralled zombies and now it’s finally time to open the barn doors.
We’re kicking off our month-long tribute to all things Halloween with a special set of icons and desktop pictures inspired by everyone’s favorite time-traveling alien, Doctor Who. Ged has been crafting his Doctor Who Vol 2 icons for ages and now they’ve materialized to save humanity & spruce up your hard drives all at the same time. Doctor Who fans will recognize many of the iconic (sorry) items from the long-running BBC series including Matt Smith’s sonic screwdriver and the erie Pandorica.
As if that wasn’t enough, David Lanham has also jumped on the Doctor Who bandwagon and created a new set of beautifully detailed TARDIS wallpapers for your Mac, iPad and shiny new iPhone 5. If you look lovingly at the TARDIS like the Doctor does, these wonderful scifi wallpapers will keep you smiling for eternity. David’s even created two alternate versions for you – Version B and Version C.
