Blue Peter Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny Competition

Blue Peter Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny Competition

Thursday 21 November

CBBC is celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who with the launch of an exciting new Blue Peter Doctor Who competition and two live Blue Peter specials; a must see for all young Doctor Who fans.

In an exclusive competition, Blue Peter viewers aged between six and 15 will be asked to design new sonic devices for Sontaron Commander Strax, Madame Vastra and Jenny Flint. Their gadgets will feature in the iconic science fiction series. The winner will get the unique opportunity to see their gadget in action on the set of Doctor Who.

On Thursday 21 November and Saturday 23 November, Barney, Lindsey and Radzi will be joined by aliens and monsters in the studio and the audience will be able to design their very own alien live on air.

Blue Peter viewers will have their questions answered by Matt Smith; they will be able to get ready for the 50th anniversary show by making their very own cushion (to hide behind); and we’ll help them to host a Doctor Who party by showing them how to make Dalek cupcakes.

    I’m too old for this competition but I thought a potentially good sonic device for Madame Vastra could be something strapped to her forehead to resemble the classic silurian third eye on their head. Like a flash back to the classic series.

    October 30th, 2013 - 6:51pm

    Does it have to be one sonic device between the 3 or only one?

    • Booboo Jr

      October 31st, 2013 - 1:01pm

      More details will be given when the programme airs, so hopefully we’ll know after then.

  • Dwissooooooooooooooogood!!!!

    October 30th, 2013 - 4:14pm

    Do you have to make a difference on a device for each of them


    October 30th, 2013 - 10:59am

    I’ve always assumed that is Vastra had a Sonic it would look like the Trans Temporal Sonic Screwdriver.
    But this is interesting news. Could it mean a spin-off is on it’s way?

    • 100000BC

      November 3rd, 2013 - 10:14pm

      I’d LOVE that! But then many characters are worth their own spin-offs, look how popular Sarah and Jack were! You could have:
      River Song
      Brian Williams
      Vastra, Strax + Jenny
      Sally Sparrow
      Rose + The Duplicate Doctor…
      And many more!

      October 29th, 2013 - 6:27pm

    This is a good idea – we know the Doctor will probably give them these devices the same way he gives River one.
    Sadly, i’m too old to enter. But still pretty cool.

    • Alex The Geek

      October 29th, 2013 - 7:48pm
