Yes, I know his name is the Doctor, and this isn’t about that. I’m talking about sleeping ensconced in linens branded with the BBC’s longest-running and worldwide-beloved science fiction series’ branding. Because you might not be able to bed Peter Capaldi (unless you’re Elaine Collins, and if you are then congratulations on 17 years of marriage!), but you can at least get a TARDIS comforter.Here’s the product photo from ThinkGeek, which is lit much better than my apartment.ThinkGeek’s Doctor Who TARDIS Bed-In-A-Bag is everything you need to make your bed and sleep in it, covered in TARDISes and Doctor Who logos. It’s available in Twin, Full, Queen, and King sizes, and comes with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, pillowcases and shames (the Twin set has one of each, while the other has two of each), and a comforter. And right now it’s on sale at ThinkGeek for $29.99 in any way, down from $69.99 (for Twin) to $99.99 (for King).The sheets are… well, by my standards low-key, but still extremely nerdy. They’re white with blue outlines of the TARDIS and gray Gallifreyan writing patterned over them. The pillowcases have the same pattern, so they match if you don’t use the shams. The TARDIS outlines are hard to miss, but if they were just covered in Gallifreyan ring-words the sheets would actually look like pretty stylish patterns not immediately related to Doctor Who.The comforter and shames, however, are hard to miss. The comforter is a dark blue cosmic pattern with the TARDIS on the front, big and glowing and askew as it flies through the time vortex. It would look rad on the side of a van. On a bed, well, it still looks rad, but not in a way that will necessarily give you particularly easy or conventional results in your social life. The shams have a similar pattern, but with smaller TARDISes (TARDII? TARDES?) on them.Incidentally, what’s the point of shams? I’m confused by the necessity of a pillowcase you put over a pillowcase. Duvet covers make sense, because it’s easier to wash them then the whole duvet, but shams seem to just make pillows slightly weirder to sleep on, with the fringe around them. Comment below if anyone can explain shams to me, or if you have favorite obscure Doctor Who novels that are no longer canon but had interesting ideas (Lungbarrow is great).The bedding is polyester, so the sheets are smooth and light, but aren’t as soft as cotton (or if you can afford it, bamboo). Not bad for $29.99, but I’d love to see a Doctor Who Hotel Linens Collection with some 600-count Egyptian cotton bearing an airbrushed Tom Baker face.If the dark blue TARDIS design is a bit too understated for you, ThinkGeek has an even wilder Doctor Who Floating TARDIS Bed In A Bag, with the TARDIS even more askew over a flaring star, and a Doctor Who Sublimation Bedding Set that has the same parts of the Bed In A Bag sets. But with a comforter that shows a stationary TARDIS surrounded with bisexual lighting. Love that vaporwave palette.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img
